White Lily by froggyk White Lily by froggyk
white lillies are symbolic of death, particularly the innocence restored to the soul after death

fun fact: the blue i used in this used to be my favorite color to use, and the rust red color i used is currently my favorite

Coincidentally, I just browsed for the white lily to see wether it's the plant I think it is. And then there was your Sherlock/white lily painting. You made my day! Thank you :) And the skull <3

It's a really amazing picture! Thanks for uploading!

Sherlock's right hand (the one holding the lilies) looks a bit too big, and his collar is positioned a little oddly, but other than that this is an absolutely gorgeous work! Love it~

Love the skull imagery! The way the two colors blend together looks great. And I adore that rust red color! What's it called?

:iconfroggyk:
froggyk Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
iron oxide red. so it is quite literally a pigment based from rust, haha. like i mentioned, it's my favorite color to use right now, and it behaves so nicely with wet in wet techniques. i'd recommend purchasing it from the m graham brand... but that's my favorite brand so i'd just recommend it in general.

I like symbolism and the idea of it! Sherlock's face could look more like Sherlock in my opinion though! :meditation:

yeah? i think i got his eyes a bit off and the shape of his profile is a little wrong too- is there anything else you can see more specifically?
