Moss lovin by nk-chan Moss lovin by nk-chan
Close-up of the TOUCHING part since this is for the Touch contest [link] EDIT: the touch contest of FAIL. The first contest I enter in like ages and the guy flakes. But ~moonbeam picked it up :heart: (I didn't win or anything though. :B ) But that's not the point! This was fun to do, and I want to do more similar things (groundish, touchish, texturish) but way better.

I've got, like.. a ground fetish. I'm really into pictures where the viewpoint is close to the ground or where you can see the ground in great detail. Like these: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] and that one with the girl lying in the impossibly luscious long grass that I can't find right now.

Mmmmmm, ground. :heart: This is where I want to be! Pressed against the ground in the warm darkness. Maybe crawling on it, feeling the soft impact.. you know, how it's sort of rubbery when you hit it. So close to the ground. Mmmm.

....
Uuuh..
this is mostly acrylic paint and Copics~

I love this. The texture, the viewpoint, the girl, the paintstrokes, the moss...

(I do rather have a weakness for moss, it is such an underloved plant and it's so squishy and lovely to walk on!)

Nice work!

so like i dont know why i havent faved this yet because everytime i come look at your gallery i end up staring at it for awhile. its delicious and sensual and you can really feel yourself in there pressed up against the earth. it reminds me of home and what it smells like there. have you ever been to pennsylvania? even the more suburban areas have woods surrounding, and its all very green and full of mossy ferny foresty lichens. mmmm i love this.

i love the high contrast colours, the pose, the concept and the style / feel to it all. really makes you feel as though you're in the picture with him, like you can feel the damp moss on your skin and smell the vegetation in the air. awesome.

I really like the overall fell of this picture. the very dark greens and browns on it unifies it and bring it together

Also, and interresting motif.. Looks good
Great job

The coloring is amazing. You have some anatomy errors, but in this image it adds a good thing to the image rather then giving it a minus... lovely. Keep up the good work,

Sorry I didn't get a chance to comment on this earlier. O.o I was really busy.

I love the mixed acrylic paint and copic markers. It's so vibrant and there's such an intense.. feeling behind it. I'm not sure emotion is the right word.. because I'm confused by that but it's just... I wanna stare at it.
