+ Yes, There Will Be Clockwork + by ShePaintsWithBlood + Yes, There Will Be Clockwork + by ShePaintsWithBlood
SOLD

I painted this piece as a prospective cover for my art book before I decided to put it on hold. I had been having a rare fit of extreme artblock so by the time I spit this out, it felt like a miracle. This creature (he of the long snout and tree trunk head) had been floating around my brain for a few days before I drew him. His face, the muzzle portion at least, came to me in a dream about a demon who wanted to marry me (I should be so arrogant) although in the dream I was rather terrified of the creature, his face intrigued me a lot and I began using it.



Time: 15-20+ hours
Tools: Watercolour and pastel on canvas
Reference: My elk skull, Autrella and some other random animal anatomical reference of which I have forgotten.

This painting is bloodmarked and Copyright to Aria '51' Keehn ShePaintsWithBlood (me) Thank you so much for looking.:blackrose:

Your work is utterly awe-striking...i don't even think i can muster the petty wherewithal to be jealous of you. This has never happened before...i'm still waiting for AWE's typical bitter aftertaste to kick-in, but it's not happening. How...Lovely :)
I've literally never felt so much reverence for another artist's body of work before.
Sorry for the creepy stalker-ish tone of this message. But Your work is just so gobstopping, godsmackingly good.
Thank-you for sharing your beautiful work. It's truly inspiring:)

Oh wow thank you so much!  That comment truly made my night and inspired me so much!  Hearing something like that is  an honor and inspires me to such an extent I cannot put it to words. 

I think I shall have the best of luck with creation for the rest of the night thanks to you <3  :blackrose:

I absolutely love how the swirls works so well together. And the creature too! For some reason it reminds me of a song by Nightwish - taikatalvi. I don't know what the song is about but it popped into my head when I saw this.

It's in Finnish but it's an enchanting song. :) I haven't been able to translate everything but it seems like it's a poem about nature. At least it inspires me.

As always, you are brilliant. Your art is always a personal challenge for me to push my limits just a bit further, a lovely character.

Keep pushing, I know that feeling of clumsy hands being unable to translate what's in your mind. <3

Aww thank you so much!! What I kind of like about the colours on this piece in person is that the darkest watercolour areas (the ones that look black but are actually purple and blue) turn copper at certain angles! :blackrose:
