Chromatism by Finchwing Chromatism by Finchwing
Curse this quality.

THIS TOOK.
SO LONG.

This is my final piece for my AS Fine Art course in college. The topic that I chose was Animals (doi) and was inspired by Marcia Baldwin's colourful art style, and Henri Rousseau and William Blake's work with tigers.

Created with soft pastels on A0 paper. Not even sure if that's a proper size, but it's double A1. Pretty big.
I'm quite proud of this one :'O the more I look at it the more flaws I see, but I'm trying to look past those. It was seriously fun to make, really. Especially the head. That took the longest, as you would expect.

The trees in the background are meant to resemble stripes.

I tried not to use black in this one to make it look brighter.

I dunno what else to say.

Here, have a head:

This is amazing. I love the colours, it does look really bright, it's really beautiful. I love seeing your traditional work, it always makes me want to just pick up a pencil and draw.
