In the hollow of her arms by Vyrhelle-VyrL In the hollow of her arms by Vyrhelle-VyrL
"Dans le creux de ses bras" Nathaniel Ombre d'argent et Heléa Branduir Morä des Chroniques d'Arcea (c) VyrL / Vyrhelle.


Un petit peu de tendresse ne fait jamais de mal. Dans l'histoire qui sera relatée dans les BD en préparation, Nathaniel n'aura pas souvent l'occasion d'être calme et serein au cours de sa vie. Mais ce sera auprès d'Heléa qu'il trouvera toujours assez de paix pour dormir du sommeil du juste. Même si le monde autour venait à s'écrouler. Elle est le premier anneau du tatouage qui entoure son bras...

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:

A little bit of love is never wrong. In the story will be told in the comics in preparation, Nathaniel will not often be calm and serene in his life. But it will be with Helea he will always find enough peace to sleep as a kid. Even if the world were to crumble around. Helea is the first ring tattoo around his arm ...


Watercolors on 50x65cm paper, a Christmas gift for my dear :iconkhyl:
I asked my husband to shot it because it was too big to be scanned :XD:

... and of course, HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

I know it says you used watercolor but it was so detailed I thought you used colored pencils or something too:)

I like this for a few reasons:
A) The colors are all very soft, and soothing. The clothing hangs loosely on the figures and sweeps downward, generating an overall lazy or settled, laid back feeling. Very calming.
B) There is a bit of controversy in the stereotypical sense in this image. Typically it is the female who goes to the male for comfort in this manner, but in this picture it is the opposite. I think this really portrays the reality of things, that even if the male acts tough he needs compassion as well, needs to be cradled 'in the hollow of her arms.'
So yeah. I like this piece.

In general, I like to create characters with weakness and strength, they are women or men. So I consider they both need compassion sometimes.

First of all, YOU DESERVE ALL THE CREDIT AND ADMIRATION for doing this in watercolours!

This picture turned out so beautifully and it is so gentle and serene with its pose and emotions, that it is truly inspiring, because it makes you feel something instantly from the moment you look at it (from the colours) to the deep care and emotion that the two people emit.

Very VERY well done :3

I think this deserves a Daily Deviation! ^_______^

C'est amusant, mon mauvais anglais m'a fait faire une erreur assez poétique. Persuadée de longue date, va savoir pourquoi, que "hollow" signifiait "ombre", je comprenais "à l'ombre de ses bras" et je trouvais ça terriiiiiblement joli. Ce qui collait super bien à la tendresse du dessin. Et... non, je reprends mon bonnet d'âne en anglais et c'est un creux. Bah.
Ce qui n'enlève rien à la paisible tendresse de la scène. Cela dit, je suis considérablement détournée des personnages par les détails du décor, j'aime énormément les motifs que tu as mis partout avec un faible tout particulier pour ceux de la banquette tout devant, ouaiiiis *_* On sombre souvent dans la facilité pas prise de tête mais là, toi, tu as eu le courage de chiader tes décos, j'aime !
Et puis une petite note pour les ombrages du revêtement de la couchette qui sentent bon l'observation et sont une réussite aussi :nod:
Il y a également un truc qui me fascine dans les effets que tu as rendus dans le rideau (?) horizontal le plus à l'arrière *o_o*

Merci beaucoup, ravie de voir que je progresse bien en aquarelle :P
Et j'avoue que j'ai eu le même doute sur le mot hollow. J'étais aussi persuadée, va savoir pourquoi, que ça voulait dire ombre. On gardera ce côté poétique pour nous :P
Sinon, pour les détails, ça reste mon jeu favori pour finaliser un décor. Je ne suis pas du genre à surchargé, parce que j'aime ce qui est épuré, mais là, j'avais en tête quelque chose de plus orientale, égyptien ou méditerranéen, antique en tout cas. Et donc où l'on utilisait les murs, les meubles pour raconter beaucoup plus de chose. Et je récidiverai dès que j'aurai l'occasion :D
Sinon, pour l'anecdote, le canapé a été entièrement fait d'imagination. Je sais que j'ai une bonne vision en volume des choses. J'ai simplement joué sur ces volumes avec la lumière. Et je suis la première a être bluffée par le résultat. Tout comme les rideaux (oui, ce sont bien des rideaux :P ) d'ailleurs. Je pensais pas réussir à leur donner autant de transparence.

Moi j'aime bien quand tu la travailles plus avec des détails et reliefs ton aquarelle, comme ici. C'est évident qu'avec la fréquence à laquelle tu prends tes pinceaux qui augmente, tu ne pourras que faire de mieux en mieux. Tu te douteras que de mon côté j'en suis rââââââvie ! =D
Et je suis épatée que tu gères aussi bien d'imagination les plis et drapés de ce fauteuil, tu assures avec les volumes en effet.

Pour sûr que ça avait la classe les murs bien décorés de ces civilisations, je suis très fan aussi.
