Old Books (with making) by JaneMere Old Books (with making) by JaneMere
The theme of this painting was old books. The girl there was this one in an old painting:

I've uploaded a 2-hour video of the painting process to youtube. Here is the link.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-30
Old Books (with making) by JaneMere: is no doubt a fantastic piece! The soft colors and perspective are absolutely incredible, and the details and flow of the girl's hair are excellently done. The 16th-century inspired character design is interesting, too. ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by cinyu )

Hallo.
This is really beautiful. I can feel the warmth of that light, and the paper also.
Watching you drawing is inspiring.

Hi! I write for a magazine called Neon Gods and I'm wondering if I could use your art as the featured image to one of my monthly book review posts? The magazine "for creatives, by creatives," so I'd certainly like to highlight some good art this way. I would certainly link back to your DeviantArt page in my post. 

Here's a link to January's post (I didn't use a DeviantArtist for it) if you're interested: neongods.com/literature/januar…

I enjoyed the video very much! Now I just need to figure out what brushes you used so I can at least emulate your skill (even if just a little bit). :)

Lovely painting! What strikes me in particular is the shading on her dress; I think it is very well done. Something interesting to me about this picture is that all the books actually look new, so perhaps this is an interpretation of "old books" in the time that they were first written. 

(Sorry if I'm wrong; I notice there is what seems to be very light colored text in the open books, and I can't tell if they are text or just notebook ruling, but I liked that thought)
