Bursting Bubble by DestinyBlue Bursting Bubble by DestinyBlue
Being a soap bubble is amazing, you are created through joy, perhaps at a party or wedding, you soar above the heads of happy people smiling at your beauty... though you have, on average, 10 seconds to enjoy it all, then. pop. Gone. This is the moment I wanted to depict, a bubble bursting, full of colour and life, yet a fleeting and transient.

Perhaps it's sad... but then again, to trees, humans are a bit like bubbles....


Come find the in the 'Comic Village' Table CF13, My hearts beating so fast just thinking about it XD

Sorry its so messy and unrefined and a bit 'cheaty' as I played about with textures, experimented and thought it looked cool enough to share, and I ended up liking the rough look, as I often overwork things, certainly didn't have time to do that on this! ;) Gosh, just can't wait to get some time to get stuck into something proper, I'm sure you guys can't wait as well ^-^

So sorry I haven't been able to reply to many of your comments and notes yet, I really appreciate all you kind words and feedback, messages can be hard to keep ontop of especially as I like to reply thoughtfully :)

Sending out colourful love to you all! :heart::

Life's as fleeing as morning dew - When we reach destination we wake up from our dream.

The bursting can also be the change from one state to another (bubble to tiny droplets...), a transition. Cherry blossoms are beautiful because they do not stay forever, plus many things more.

Piece name:Bursting Bubble

The only problems i can see with this one is the top right of the head with the yellow bubble mixture the shapes of swirls it cuts off to sharply at the bottom it's like a line just seems to straight if it was slightly curved it would take it off and define where the swirls come from. Her left eye (out right) looks good with the bubble mixture but the other side doesn't seem to have enough there it could faulter off to the left to make it more complete it doesn't seem to feel right how it is

The colours are absolutely spot on for bubbles just having the face coming through is great just having the face is enough most people would be tempted to have the body coming through as well. You said there was roughness in this one but i works so well i think if everything was smooth and exact it would be too much straight line for so much wavyness. Swirls are spot on as well. The idea is really good and relates to what your saying about people being there and then gone.

Over all a great piece once again, great idea matching what the bubble should look like and adding a person to it as well. The roughness adds to the picture remember not everything needs to be perfect, not everything needs to be smooth there are lots of different textures in the world  even in your style make it your own add different textures have the anime and realism with different bits and bobs. Some bits that need a bit of of work but no ones perfect right?

Personal Note:
i like this idea but do they know they are going to pop and dissapear? or are they unaware of the fact so are they joyess because they knwo they don't have time left or are they joyess cause they just are? it inspires me to write another short story i believe ;)

If you would like critique on your artwork please send me a note on deviantart.
