That Old Black Magic by saperlipop That Old Black Magic by saperlipop
This one's dedicated to my friend Christine :iconcrayonmaniac: whose beautiful paintings conjure up a special magic of their own. Her lovely temptresses enchant me and make me sigh with longing to be able to paint the way she does. Here's my own temptress, inspired by Christine's bevy of beauties… :heart:

I like the flirty look on the character and how her finger is casually playing with the smoke. The character and the panthers work well together. :)

The only thing that bothers me a little bit is that the panthers are so tiny and dark that they are a little bit hard to spot. On the other hand the composition looks better with the smaller panthers.

saperlipop Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2009
The panthers started off larger but that made the composition "off". I also tried making them stand out more from the background, but that threw off the whole colour balance. So we can consider them to be young panthers, not yet fully grown, creatures of the night blending into their mysterious origins… :D Thanks for commenting, Minna. :aww:
