Luck Leaks Away by IceandSnow Luck Leaks Away by IceandSnow

oh noes, an unlucky horseshoe!
Putting a horseshoe upside down causes the luck to leak away. So make sure it's facing the other way!

More of my AP concentration (Superstitions)
I've been putting off submitting this for forever, hahaa.
But I figured, WELLLL I think I need to have my entire concentration up here, so I ought to do it sometime. :C

I really hate this one, and whatever I did, I still hated it. It happens, I guess. xD

URRGGHH not much else to say about this one. -grumpy face-

media: Acrylic paint and prisma colored pencils on cardboard.

i came across your portfolio.
words cant describe the way your pictures made me feel.
their truly beautiful and have such bright colour and strong contrast. I've been looking for something for a while now, to be my next tattoo and I'd love to get one of your character done, that is if its alright with you?

In response to the "whatever I did, I still hated it", did you consider using a real horseshoe?

This is eyecatching, by the by, and I think a nice rendition of the superstition. Your color choices really help with the mood and tone of the composition.

I did actually... I have one that I was trying to use as a reference but the picture still didn't work out. xDDD

Well I meant embed the actual horseshoe INTO the image. Like affix it to the canvas, and then paint onto it a bit if necessary.

I think it looks beautiful, I've always admired your use of colors.

But I think without the description I wouldn't have guess that it was about luck leaking away :)

This is eerily reminiscent of some of the things I did for my own AP Concentration a few years ago. But I gotta say, you do them a lot better than I did! 8D Even if you don't care for this, it's really lovely. And it has meaning, which is even better! (cause trust me - my concentration was based on flowers and a lot of it was just drawing down whatever pretty floral things crossed my eyes, lol)

You could put a bucket underneath it, so the luck will leak into it. AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE A BUCKET OF LUCK. YAAAAY.

BUt seriously. DON'T HATE IT. IT'S PURRTY. I love the colours and the clovers.
