Windmill Wings by hyperionwitch Windmill Wings by hyperionwitch
The stairways up to La Butte
can make the wretched sigh
while windmill wings of The Moulin
shelter you and I.


-Complainte de la Butte (from Moulin Rouge)

Yes! A submission for...some art thing where I live. Anyway, inspired by the above lyrics from Complainte de la Butte, which is from the ever-awesome movie, Moulin Rouge! ^^

Not sure how long it took, but it was done with Micron pens (005 and 02, most likely), Prismacolor markers, and my two Tria markers (THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE; however, Prismas have a really, really horrible selection of shades of red--in other words, they have normal red, pinker red, and oranger red--so I had to get a dark red Tria and a darker red Tria to compensate for the Prismas' problem). Yes. I am very, very proud of it, though I could be happier with her hair, it's kind of...boring, I dunno. I wanted it to be like Cecelia's hair in my picture Eternally Retold, but that didn't quite work out, as I forgot what the color combination for that was. *le sigh*

I'm about done now! *hugs picture...only not literally because that would bend it*

Complainte de la Butte belongs to Georges Van Parys and Jean Renoir
RANDOM GIRL BELONGS TO ME!! *laughs manaiacally*

I love this Gillian. Your clothing folds are, stupendous. I am also very jealous of your coloring skills, it is so great it even looks like it was CGed instead of colored. Your insane creativity in all your pictures scares me, you have one great mind. I love how part of her angel wings are windmills, which i JUST NOW noticed. It is beautiful.

you being this good now, makes me scared of what you will be like in a couple years. i am even scared of what your art will be in 1 year!
