The Twilight Town by chicourano The Twilight Town by chicourano
WOW!
I found this piece. Its a very old one. I did this illustration
in Paris two years ago. There are parts unfinished and also
my technique was more based on colouring pencils and less acrylics.

Anyway,...this old lady goes around the forest during the winter solstice picking herbs and branches.....

That is beautiful, it's amazing what you've done with those colouring pencils!

It's so late, I should go to bed so I'm going to try and 'bookmark' you on my DA page so I can come back and look at more :-)

I am getting close to submitting something- just in case you wondered why some random person left you a message and they have no art of their own... I've had to get a decent internet connection, then work out HOW to submit, then get round to making the files small enough to upload in less than a week (this is my next task)

Seriously though, I drew a... I don't know, I suppose a goblin, a while ago and he just sits in my sketchbook, unseen. He looks a very little bit like your old lady in the picture so I am going to scan him and post him, may even think of a name for him! So thankyou, you inspired a little spark of confidence in me to do it.

Again, your picture is wonderful and I shall enjoy looking at more when I've had some sleep

Unfinished or not this is still quite breathtaking. the layout and the colors are all well done. I'd love to see a story written about this because the art seems to tell a part of the story as is. this is wonderful work.

Subtle and mysteriously detailed at the same time. She also appears to be playing coy, which I think is so fitting for Fantasy Art! Love it.

I love the style that you used. It's very unique and captivating!!!! I love the name of it as well!!!!! I cannot begin to express how much talent (and most likely time) has gone into this! And what's more, that was a really long time ago that this was drawn, so I know that your skills have improved even more (which is hard to imagine because anyone would die for skills like this!). Keep up the great work and congrats on the DD! You deserve it! :)

This is done superbly...colors are magnificently toned, her face expression is full and "talks" and, totally unprofessionally and subjectively ;) I love the little creature on her hat and here tattoo.
You are incredible artist and this is a great piece
