Collecting Memories by Miss-Belfry Collecting Memories by Miss-Belfry
[W.I.P.]

This is my part for an art trade with the lovely :iconarcticrockcat: who made this absolutely beautiful piece for me.arcticrockcat.deviantart.com/a… :heart: *-*
Sorry for taking that long with my part. I'm so slow..

Anyway, she asked me to paint her wonderful OC Milja who came from another world and is only allowed to stay here for a certain time. In order to make as much out of her stay as possible, she collects everything on this planet she finds and writes everything in her diary.
I really hope I managed to make an accurate portrait of her...I'm not very good at capturing the likeness of other artist's OCs..but I'm working on it.

I don't really know why but I found it extremely difficult to pick the right colours this time...
I changed the shade of her dress at least 4 times. Luckily I mainly painted with acrylic paints so I could go over and over it again. I'm still not satisfied with the colour sheme, it's far from what I intended it to be. :/

I just hope you'll like it. c:



Oh, thank you so very much for the DD! This really made my day. ><

This has an old storybook feel to it, and it reminds me of what the older Harry Potter movies were like and what the newer ones should have been.

I like the colours! They suggest to me a timeless dusty old library full of magical stuff, and her dress is black, the colour of one who knows, the colour of space and no-time...she's mythical! I know nothing of this character this is just a spontaneous observation. Lovely work.
Thanks.
RS.
