Defying Gravity by ThePotatoStabber Defying Gravity by ThePotatoStabber
*note to Amie* I am so so sorry that this got damaged in the post! Unfortunately I haven't had much experience with posting pictures so perhaps it was foolish of me and I'll make sure to take much more care in the future. I hope it isn't too bad :/

This is a gift for :iconart-of-amie: as part of the fabulous :iconartcrossing: group!

She mentioned (among many many wonderful things!) that she liked Glee, and since I hadn't done a Glee picture for aaaages I thought I'd give it a go!

Straight away this image from the Glee live tour [link] came to mind since I LOVED the colour and would be great fun to paint.
So this is an A3 watercolour (which is big for me - I rarely ever go beyond A4!) and was great fun to make - I hope Amie likes it, and I can only apologise that it's only a painting not something more creatively 3-dimensional if that makes sense :D

I absolutely love this art style! Great colors, and I like how you got a watercolor so detailed <3

"Defying Gravity" is my all-time favorite song, although I'm not a super-duper huge fan of the Glee remixed version.

First off- DONT EVER APOLOGISE FOR SENDING SUCH AN AWESOME PAINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*ahem*

Anyway, yay, now I can thank you! I totally squelled when I got this, it is awesome!!!!
As for the damage in the post, most of it is ok. I trimed the edge slightly which got rid of the water/crap mark, and most of the creases have flattened out. Theres still a couple of big ones, but they are situated around the side, so not to bad.

I have to say, this is one of my fav gifts I've ever recieved :D it's curretnly on the wall just above me!

i'M TOTALLY GONNA STALK YOU'RE GALLERY NOW AMAZING PERSON....


thanks again...

Um wow. This is so stunning. Some things that stand out are the purple shadows, and the legs. Yes, I'm creepy, but both the folds on the jeans and the bare legs are captured perfectly. Just wow.

:blush: Thank you so much! :tighthug: You're not creepy (well, if you are then I am too), but those three aspects you pointed out were actually my favourites of the piece when painting it - so I almost squealed when you said that!
