Giulietta by crayonmaniac Giulietta by crayonmaniac
I updated my Juliette as I never liked her face, now she has a new face.

I painted quite some time on the candle holder, it is Venetian and renaissance and I am glad the way the candle itself is painted. It is too close to her hair, it will set her hair on fire but it is done, it is too late, all layers are gone, so the candle stays.
This painting was great fun to do, those dark reds are so nice to paint. But is was also very difficult and it is probably full of flaws as usual but it is too late now to correct it.

Thanks for all your favs and comments.

For the earrings I used the beautiful jewels of :iconran-arashi: with her authorization. They were challenging to paint but so beautiful and I learned so much in the process, my first gem stone, the green really enriches the reds.
These are modern jewels but they blend so well with the renaissance protrait. Thank you dear for your inspiration and for letting me paint them.

The jewelry and patterns for the clothes and that candle holder are phenomenal. Her eyes seem to reach out of the picture and speak to you. The lips could be better--something about the angle is off.

Heh, everyone sucked when they first started. I look back on work I used to be so proud of and feel like punching myself.
