Bluebirdie the Dream Writer by BlueBirdie Bluebirdie the Dream Writer by BlueBirdie
Here's a watercolor painting of one of my characters, Bluebirdie- she uses a fantastical typewriter to type beautiful dreams for those who are asleep... I'm happy with this, but I feel that it is not totally finished yet, (what to do with those scrolls??)
any ideas or suggestions are helpful.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-02-11
I know this isn't in my usual gallery, but how could I pass up such a beautiful piece? Bluebirdie the Dream Writer by ~BlueBirdie has a splendid blend of blues and greens adding to it's very dreamy appearance. Read the description for more info on the character herself.

wonderful!

what an imaginative character, and a really wonderful picture to go with her!

definately deserving of a daily deviation.
it's just a pity that it does not have more comments :(

Colors well used to covey the message... May be you should extend the scrolls into the minds of cute living beings giving a night effect for active dreams. Good work :)

Pretty in an innocent, fairy-tale/story book way.

It's very creative.

I'm leaving it as is, thanks for your honest opinion though. It is interesting to see how other view my work.
She's part bird, so her feet arent meant to look human- and her face, well...I think her face is quite gentle and lovely. :) jaa ne!

This is AMAZING, and what's more, it's watercolor, which makes you some sort of GOD.

The lighting is amazing, and all that detail on the typewriter is absolutely beautiful.

This is honestly, and without a doubt, one of the BEST piece I've seen on dA, ever. There is just something about it ..
