Epic by Keaze Epic by Keaze
This painting took so long to do (but mostly because of my procrastination :P). It was mostly painted in 2008, but I kept putting it off. However, I do consider it one of my best paintings even with its strange perspective. What can I say, I was 16 when I started this.

Ponos

Nije normalno koliko mi je za ovu sliku trebalo. Zapravo je većinom blia naslikana u 2008, ali sam ju stalno odgađala. Doduše, mislim da se trud isplatio i smatram ju jednom od svojih najboljih slika unatoč nezgodnoj perspektivi. Kaj da velim, imala sam 16 godina.

Ova slika od početka do kraja: [link]

It makes me wonder.

Have you ever read the Redwall series of books?
This here could be a portrait from many of the books.

Can't say I have. I did buy one of their books a few years ago, but never got around to read it.

Definitely worth the long wait. :D It's fantastic! The atmosphere and mood you've captured really make this work - the facial expression is brilliant and I also love the light beams coming from the top right, and the dark shadow lines cast by the beaver. Lovely work on stormy clouds, grass and sea, too. :)

Thank you! It was my first time doing such a big background and I'm glad I didn't screw it up. Hopefully it'll make me do more art with backgrounds.

I love this! It's eye catching, I love the moody clouds and lighting and the expression on the character's face is wonderful. He looks as if he's about to tell a long tale of a battle that took place. :)

Thank you! The clouds were really fun to paint, even though they're my mortal enemy in traditional art. I remember it was a bit tricky trying to keep the beaver's expression with all that fur but I'm glad it worked out in the end.

Buduci da sam prvo vidjela onaj proces, pa onda sliku, mogu reci, da se taj tvoj trud i cekanje isplatio, jer je slika stvarno fantasticna.
Super mi je sta si se odlucila promijenit, odnosno poboljasat ove ptice, jer super idu uz sliku ovako nekako cijele.
Dabar je (naravno) odlicno ispao, i sjene, i izgled, i boje, i sve, a ove crte na njegovoj odjeci su mi prezakon.
I na kraju je ona litica ispala bolje nego na pocetku.

Drago mi je da ti se sviđa. Litica je jedini razlog zašto mi je toliko trebalo da ovo dovršim. Mislim da ne bih podnijela daljnje natezanje s njom. Za ptice sam se otpočetka dvoumila da li da ih napravim detaljne ili ne, ali pošto bi ovo trebala biti detaljna slika odlučila sam ih završiti kako bog zapovijeda.
Tartan mi je jedan od najdražih uzoraka :heart:

Aha.
A, samo me zanima, dali se "epic" moze prevesti kao "ponos"?
Ili si ti namjerno, pa valjda krivo prevela?
Reply
:iconkeaze:
Keaze Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
Haha, ne, "epic" ne može značiti "ponos". Ponekad naslovi slika ne zvuče tako dobro na engleskom kao i na hrvatksom pa ih prilagodim ili potpuno promijenim. Iz nekog razloga "Epski" mi uopće nije dobro zvučalo, a "Ponos" je.
To često radim. Primjerice, "Wall trot" se izvorno zvao "Hophop mravojed" (luckasto, ali tako se zvala slika dok sam radila na njoj). "Inuit seal" se zapravo zove "Mašna" (jedna od riječi za koje nemam pojma kako se kažu na engleskom, uz krmelje). "Flower power" sam nazvala "Dijete cvijeća". "Sunbath and sunshade" sam nazvala "Sunce i hlad" iako engleski naziv znači "Sunčanje i suncobran". "Thought impact" sam nazvala "Sila misli" itd.

I misla sam si.
A ja nisam ni znala normalno prevest epic na hrvatski x)
Ne, stvarno, pogledaj u neki rjecnik, i vidjet ces da nema, "epic".
To prilagođavanje i mijenjanje je sasvim normalno, mislm svugdje se to radi, pa je i bolje sto i ti to koristis.
