Just us and the Snow - Kensar and Meiria by MaddalinaMocanu Just us and the Snow - Kensar and Meiria by MaddalinaMocanu
For those interested:
Fragments from the Chapters of my novel! Tumblr: Maddallinah272's Hideout

:3 This is the first time I make Kensar and Meiria in colors. They are such a lovely couple :iconeeeeeplz:
As for those who never have been to my sketch account to read a bit more in the sketches I've made :P These are Dhonia and Brunar, my novel's main characters, 's parents.
:saddummy: Unfortunately, in truth, they don't get to spend winter together for long, for at almost half a year after they meet and get married, Meiria's father takes her away from Kensar... oh, darn it, and she's preggy.

As for the drawing itself - that's mine, my background ^______^ Actually the leaves were made by my sister and I just filtered them to look less... cereal-ish.... I got a little inspiration from a photo from Google, but just the concept and lighting, not the entirety of it, as you can see: [link] It took me a while to figure out how to make that snow storm xD I am not good with snow, I can say that as a fact :giggle:

Lovely scene! I love the background, and how their shoes are sunk into the snow :D And good luck with the contest :)

I guess they've been sitting there, whispering sweet words of love for a long time, seeing as the snow passed their boots. :iconteheplz: Usually when you make a step in the snow, it takes the shape of the entire boot heel, and seeing as here the nose of the boots are covered as well, it suggests time... symbolism. :iconisaydanceplz:

Yeah that's exactly why I like those sunk boots, they're not just snowy, but completely gone, while their being lovey-dovey under the snow. Probably not feeling any bit of cold :D Love your symbolism :nod:

It's not all that colorful. :giggle: See those tones of liliac in the background? Those are actually tinted grays, so more over, it's a gray toned composition ;P And you're right I did feel happy when I made this. Especially coloring her, since she has such beautiful freckles, it makes Meiria so freaking adorable :iconomgsocuteplz:

Even monochromatic and darker more grey saturated tones are beautiful :D

Oh, gawd, that is so nice! *___* Lovely color scheme and background, and all around details :) The scene really tells a story! :heart:
Instant fave!

Good luck in the contest!

Thank you... The background was the main reason for such a soft toned background and until I made the BG, the character's colors were left unbalanced. It's always good to see in what sort of environment the characters are placed in to see in what way they can be blended in Color Balance :giggle: Just some things I've noticed over the past months of experimentation ;P
A story ^______^ It really does. The story of a couple so much in love, she was willing to trade in the belief of her family and village so he may marry him :D From their beautiful bond came these two lovely children: [link] and [link]
Though fate made it so that around 4 months into her pregnancy - as a side note, you can't tell but in truth she's almost 3 months pregy here ^_^ which adds to her beauty :iconeeeeeplz: her father finds Meiria and Kensar hiding away in a distant mountain village, hence the snow, and takes her away from him by force and forbids him to ever see her. It's a sad story :( and this is one of their rare moments of peace and sheer love.

As for good luck, AudreyDutroux's contests have always been a challenge, not because of the theme, but because of the people participating in it :saddummy: This time it's no different, seeing as Sakimichan said she would join at some time in the future... If so, I'm screwed :(

Yeah, the interactions between characters and background often must be in balance :) The either effects the other :)

Aw, such cute children and you can see that they're related (people often forget that and just design two cool ocs..). And your story seems to be a true Shakespeare story with true love and big obsticles. You really captured their true love and affection for eachother! :heart:

I noticed that too...BHA! XD But oh well, I know at least I pushed myself in my entries so my participation was not in vain! xD I also found new people to watch (heheh) so ... :D

Well it's not about them, it's about their children, actually. So Kensar and Meiria are actually memories of Kensar's friend, Sonitbeir, which he shares with the twins :D

Thank you for the watch :giggle: ^_^ I forgot to say that ;P

First and foremost, I made this representation for myself and the contest is just a simple idea for the background of the picture ;P There's no need to surrender. Take a shot. You can never know where luck can come from :3
