EWian in Rowland's book

Rowland's book

Got a bit of reflection. Lots of play and mediums going in to this entry.

Mediums used: Pencil for sketching. Medallion pen for lining. Promarker for the face colour. Phebo gesso for the sock and hair base. Colouring and pastel pencil for the eyes and hair form Faber-Castell and Derwent. The pink and blue is a vinyl paint, it gives a beautiful matt finish. The yellow, orange and green is Galeria acrylic paint from Winsor&Newton. The hair tones are colouring pencils, pastels, charcoal, and a bit of acrylic paint. The red mouth is uni posca pen. The greens on the pullover is a mix of the vinyl paint and Galeria acrylic paint from Winsor&Newton on top.

If you have any suggestion on a song that is under the Creative Commons licence and that is between 6 and 10 minutes let me know and I'll put together a video of the illustration process. I know http://www.jamendo.com has a lot of songs but it take time to listen through, so if you have a suggestion it will be appreciated.

playing is fun!! I really enjoy seeing the mix of all the mediums you used. The facial expression on the girl is so complex and I really wonder what she has in mind!? Loved her hair colour too!

hm... regarding a song for the video. How about Liszt's La campanella? But the version I have is only 5:55 long. Maybe you want to attach another song behind it? Grandes études de Paganini S.141 No.6 is also pretty nice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dhmd69m_gc

let me know if you want to use these, I can send the files to you. but it would be cool to know what others want to suggest too.

(I don't know if they are under the Creative Commons license though. How do you find out?)

Seeing as it is in 'my book' you could use one of my songs - -not sure if they're appropriate for what you want--
