Woops by JessicaMDouglas Woops by JessicaMDouglas
Concept
I accidentally melted your tree. You didn't need that, did you?

This was an exercise done after I had taken my medication in just.. relaxing. I'm very structured when I draw, and sometimes run into stumbling blocks of being SO rigid about how things have to be drawn that I just don't know what to draw because it won't fit in the space I have. So for this I literally just took a pencil and drew random circles, then kind of.. let the shapes evolve from there. There was no rhyme or reason. Oh I like a curly feather here. Hey there's a great big eye! etc. I had no idea what it would come out like, but I enjoyed every moment of it.

Materials
This was also an experiment in derping with whatever I had on hand. So there are watercolors, there are acrylics, there are enamels, there are colored pencils used in this piece.

Awards

Prints
Canvas prints are available, check my etsy account for updates www.etsy.com/shop/Vestaka

Side notes
I'll be taking a new photo of it soon, the lighting is a bit weird and the colors not QUITE true.

As this was my first step in practicing new things (being relaxed and not so rigid) I feel it was a pretty good step along the way of evolving my art. How are your practice pieces coming along?    (don't forget, the deadline for submissions to me is January 1st. See my journal for details if this is confusing to you <3 )

And this is why a phoenix sometimes just isn't the most environmentally friendly choice of pet, right? Love it nonetheless.

M.. maybe if you're uh... uh... uh... man now I forgot what the jobs are that involve burning things and are environmentally friendly. Counterfires? Yes! Yes if you're a firefighter who has to do counterfires in forest fires.

Isn't it nice sometimes to just make art for the sake of it? :)

This looks amazing. I love how well you got the impression of warmth and fire across. The only thing I'd like more would be a higher resolution so that we could see all the detail; that tree and those feathers look awesome!

Congrats on the well-deserved DD, and have a nice day~ Keep up the great art!

unfortunately I don't do higher resolutions due to well... people being not so honest with their dealings with my art. So this will have to do. But thank you so much! This was a great thing to wake up to!
