Petals and Pearls by aruarian-dancer Petals and Pearls by aruarian-dancer
"Petals and Pearls" -- pen-on-paper drawing scanned and given tints and highlights in Corel Painter

This is my gift to :iconxshelaghx: for the January 2009 gifting meme. Hope you like it. Note me when you get a chance so I can send you a high resolution file.

I didn't want to title this one "Gardenia v.2" because anything with "version 2" attached is, to me, just so uninspired. So I decided to call this "Petals and Pearls" instead because after giving it overall green, the petals and pearls really stand out. It is always so much fun to color these because it's like putting makeup on a drawing. Also, I love putting sparkles everywhere. (But you knew that by now from all my other stuff... XD)

Oh my gosh! I can't quite describe how much I love this picture - it's just so beautiful :heart: It makes me feel so relaxed just looking at it. I really love her eyes as well - they almost look feline I think which is cool ^^ Gorgeous!

She's so very elegant with her beautiful come hither eyes! X) I do believe she has a slightly different look than your other ladies. I can't quite put my finger on what it is though.

I agree that she does look different from my other women!!! At first, I thought it might be the shape of her eyes (Her eyes are more Asian in shape, kind of.), but I also made it really light with pupils rather constricted, which makes the eyes look like she's more aloof -- certainly not all that excited to see someone, but rather seeing right through the person. (Or maybe it's simply very bright where she was... ^_^; )

Ooooo that could be with with the pupils and maybe just all around shading of the eyes. I think the face shape might be a little different as well. Ah well she's pretty whatever it is! X)

Wow, it's green! Didn't see that coming but I love it! You really did amaze me again with the colours:XD:
I don't really like green and yellow that much but I love how you used the colours in this. It's looks so...lively...if that's the right word, and beautiful of course;)
