The Golden Crown by Loonaki The Golden Crown by Loonaki
Started doodling with my Ecolines and this happened. I usually don't paint this big (this is A3), but it was nice trying out.

Ecoline liquid watercolors, Faber-Castell watercolor pencils, golden acrylic paint

wow I really love the way this picture Is, I agree I really enjoy and like your works. I love how you coloured her lips it's so lovely~!
I was wondering how do you use Ecoline Liquid Watercolours???

The golden paint you did for the accessories on her hair it looks like oxo wow!!! like it's really real like its a piece of gold coil that you put on it, or a golden piece, I really like the way that's created.

Her face and eyes are very beautiful!!! Keep up the good work!!! This is very much lovely!

Thank you! :]
You use Ecolines like you would use every other watercolor. Only that they're already liquid themselves.

This one has a sort of... oriental feel to it, I'm getting... 'Fruity Geisha'. As usual, it's wonderfully colorful, with a sort of running morbidity to it, like the melancholy of watching rain course down the outside of the window. Interestingly, you've covered up the hair with a cacophony of color and texture, while this is a great tragedy, as I never tire of seeing your work with hair, it does serve to shift the focus of the portrait more into the face (yes, the hair you draw tends to be a show-stealer :) ), but in this case, I like it, because the face in this one is certainly deserving of the extra attention. It's a delightfully two-dimensional piece with the depth of a three-dimensional one, tricks of perspective lend to a bit of distinction between the tip of the nose and the depression of the eyes, or the curve of the chin, but in all, most of her seems to exist in the same plane, which makes it hard to fixate on any one character trait. However, if I had to pick the most notable aspects, they would be the lips (beautifully expressive of a stunning level of interior monologue and... surprise, I think, she has seen something she was not expecting, owing to the downward curve of the lips, and slight, open-mouthed expression). Next would be her eyes, or more specifically her eyes, which communicate a modicum of disappointment, indicating that perhaps whatever she sees does not please her, perhaps even saddens her.
I've set this part aside, separate from the rest of my critique as a sort of vague mimicry of her headdress, which is both at the same time compelling and disconcerting in the way it seems to exist outside the picture, and at the same time compliments it, I didn't even notice this odd detail until quite a bit after I'd stared for a while at the rest, but, as they say, when I noticed it, I was shocked that it had taken so long.
If I could offer one criticism, it would be that this woman, in all her melancholic, shocked, colorful, hairless beauty, has a disturbingly long neck, but given how long after I'd spent enrapture by the rest of the picture I actually noticed that, it's only a mild complaint. Overall exemplary work, good job!
