Emotions - Ikarus -by SentinelsMelody

Traditional Art / Paintings / Sci-Fi©2007-2015 SentinelsMelody
Finally done ^-^! This was my school work for art classes, and I was painting it since I think March or April. It's huge and it was very hard to do, but today I finished it:)! I even got the best mark possible. I'm so happy I could sing, but I better don't ;).
Well, obviously this is not what I usually draw... but I was supposed to do something refering to the "human - beings and technic" and my teacher forbid me to draw anything I would consider beautiful; like nice colours, women and everything that could come out romantic in any way :blushes: . I asked him for a list of things I'm not allowed to draw now :giggles: . But for some reson, he made me draw the wings. Hmm...
Anyway, so I drew something that was completely new for me, and although I still like soft beauty better, I'm happy with this one, too.
Maybe I'll change the title one day... If I can think of a better one. But for now, I just wanted to show it to you. It's a photo, the scanner is WAY to small for this canvas, so please excuse the rather bad presentation.
And the most surprising thing for me was : A teacher asked me if he could buy it! He thought it was that good :D. You know what? My arts teacher told me I could easiliy take 1000€ for this one (I think €uro and US $ is roughly the same). For me, that's much money and I doubt that it's really worth it. But it's the first time I can even think of selling artwork... :sigh: I'm still dreaming my artist dream ;).

Anyway, I hope you like it!
It's Acrylics on canvas, by the way ^-^.

I think this might just be my absolute favourite! Did you actually sell it in the end?

Thanks a lot! :)
no, I didn't... I wanted to but then it found a place on the wall of my parents living room. Since then, they didn't give it back to me ;)

Ich finde das Bild total genial und ich finde es super, dass dein Lehrer dich bewegt hat was anderes zu malen. Versteh das nciht falsch. Ich finde deine anderen Bilder und auch den Stil super, aber auf diese Weise lernt man seine eigenen Fähigkeiten wesentlich besser kennen und man traut sich in neue gefilde vorzudringen ;).

Und auch, wenn ich noch nciht ganz deuten konnte, wa sgenau die beigen "Dinger" an den Flügel sein sollen (sehen ein bisschen aus wie Mausefallen), würde ich mir das Bild auch an die Wand hängen. Und auch wenn es vielleicht nciht deinem idel von Schönheit entspricht, finde ich schon, dass es auf eine gewisse Weise estetik und schönheit besitzt.

Der einezige kritikpunkt meinerseits wäre, der untere Rand der Hose, wo das Bild endet. Irgendwie sieht das merkwürdig aus, weil es wirkt als wäre es nur noch ein Hosenbein. Ich hoffe du verstehst was ich meine.

Erstmal vielen Dank ^-^! ja, ich find's mittlerweile auch ganz ok, dass ich mal was anderes gemacht hab... aber es war nicht wirklich so, dass er mir geraten hat sowas zu malen, vielmehr war alles andere verboten *lach* ;). Na egal, nu isses ja fertig.
Die Dinger sollen Solarkollektoren darstellen... für die Flügel hatte ich aber keine Vorlage und diese Solarteilöe sind schwer zu malen, find ich. Außerdem musste das Bild bis letzten Donnerstag fertig sein und so mussste ich leider etwas hetzen:(. Ich hasse sowas bei Schularbeiten...
Nochmal danke :D!!

Naja und dadurch das alles andere Verboten war, hat er dich in eine bestimmte Richtung gelenkt. War doch gar nciht so verkehrt *g* Obwohl mich der zeitdruck in der Schule auch immer sehr stört!

Okay Solarkollektoren hatte ich eher blau in Erinnerung *g* von daher bin ich nciht gleich darauf gekommen. Aber jetzt wo du es sagst ... *hehe* Coole Idee!

Klar sind die Dinger blau, aber ich wollte sie passend zur Technik. Damit das ganze nicht allzu kalt wirkt ;).

This is awesome! I love it. Like you said, it's something you usually don't draw, but I still think you did an amazing job! I'm not surprised someone wanted to buy it! You're artwork is fantastic, and I would probably buy some of it if I lived near you...though not for that high of a price...because I'm not that financially blessed. XD

I think this is one of your best, if not the best! =] I love your Twilight/NM ones too of course, since I'm just overly addicted/obsessed with those books. But this one has a really cool idea and I like the pose and wings (although I'm not sure exactly what they are..) and the mechanical abdomen thing. The only thing that I think could use improving is the shorts, because they don't seem to fit the 'mechanic/technology' theme. I think maybe like some cool mechanical belt or something would look nice, and a little less wrinkles in it since it makes it look a bit gooey and stuff xD Nice job though!! ^^

Unfortunately, I won't be able to improve anything, for I handed it in on Thursday.. and now it's hanging on some Wall in school. Still thanks for telling me what you think could be better:D!
btw, the wings are supposed to be solar collectors (is this the right English word...?).

:iconerin121:
Erin121 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007
Ohh that's cool. I guess the suggestions are just as little pointer for future works since you handed it in. And that's cool about the wings, like they collect sunlight and use them for energy? (I'm not sure exactly what they're called but I think it's something like that).

Amazing! The body still reminds me of Edward's though. Lol, did you do that on purpose or are you just used to it?

Hmm, I didn't do it on purpose and I imagine Edwrads body to look kind of... younger. Still muscular but more graceful. Argh, can't describe it, but I'm glad you like this one :D!
