I still feel like I should work into this a bit more, but it's taken so long to finish and I should work on other things too ^^

From lineart:
I did do a digital version, but never quite finished :(
For the traditional original I wanted to keep a more analogical colour scheme and also have it at twilight time.

The original artwork was created using alcohol based markers and water-soluble coloured pencils on A3 Bristol board.

I hope people enjoy it.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-29
I received a couple of suggestions for Tea with a View by =firedaemon and it is easy to see why! The amount of details found in this piece are just amazing and the concept is so original! The outfits are just stunning and I am amazed at how well this is colored! My favorite part are the fish that are near the tea that is being poured, they are so cool! ( Suggested by Nyiana-sama and Featured by Damaged927 )

Firstly I want to saw I was shocked that you drew it with traditional media I thought I was digital.
You have great skilled with traditional media.
Shading on skin look fantastic, folds and for exmaple metal effect on cages are very detailed.

I not expert but for me anatomy is very good maybe her face looks a bit too long on right side. But it is small mistake.
Paters and colored on them suit to themselve very good like gold and green or fiolet on skirt with blue on her dress, bg it look like from fairytales ^^

Detiales on whole are work on perfect way, your picture let spend whole time looking only on small elements and admire it.

It has very big impression on me.

If you plan to draw more picture like this I can tell with your imagination, idea and technical skills you ahve bright future :heart:


Originality of your picture is on very high level, you show normal tea time scene but you gave it more impact , color life and magic. Shape of things like cages, her glass,

First of all, like someone else already said, I thought this was digital work. With so many digital works around this site, it's always a great surprise to see traditional artists like you with this much talent. :heart:

There are so many details in this image, I must raise my invisible hat to you for your patience! All those curves, the flowers, the fishes coming out from the teapot and raising to the skies.. the stars... ohh, there's so many details! :faint:

There's also so much originality in this image. For example the candle- like balloons. I love those!

One other detail I find interesting is the cages. They have flowers in them, but also something else - is that something.. alive? A bunny or a bird? (I suggested a bunny, because there seems to be some of them in the image.. :giggle: )

Well, so much praise for you! But I also have to say the following:
Like *warrior-of-dream said, her face looks a bit off. Maybe if the fan was closer to her face, then perhaps it would look better.. I don't know for sure, it's not anything big really, and I don't know much about anatomy anyway haha..

All in all, this is wonderful work, and I think I found yet another Deviant to add on my Watch-list! :heart: Keep it up!

Once again, you've done a great job, coming from a fellow traditional artist, it's great to see somebody taking the time skill and effort with real materials. 5/5 :-)

Now.... I better get back to finishing my latest piece.
