08: City Running by shortpinay 08: City Running by shortpinay
One of my paintings I did during my breaks at school in the last week of Feb 2011~ I'd sit in the library and paint away~

This one was kind of inspired by the song:

Lights by Ellie Goulding.
Not just the song, but also this amazing freerunning vid:

Check it out! ;p

TOOLS: Watercolor, Black Deleter ink+Pen nib. Slight edit in photoshop. The weird dark muddiness is.. caused by using watercolor on cardstock paper instead of watercolor paper :(

PS. sorry about the awkward lighting.. Completely pulled a burn-out on the right side x_x

I like the soft background, it doesn't distract from the stark figure. Nice pose and shading!! I love the breeze in her hair.

You really are so talented with traditional mediums. It's hard to find dA artists who are good with just the basics. Water and paint.

This reminds me of the game mirrors edge. The game literally is City running where you run about the roof tops and buildings freely, using the obstacles to get to where you need to go. Nice job :)

This piece is wonderful. I think the paper choice made some interesting results! The "weird dark muddiness" is a plus!
