carla said...

This is cool! I love the black background and the frothy texture you used for the bubbles in the bath! And...I adore all the floating bubbles with the things in them (including your initials?) and the perfect irridescent edges.

Thanks for the comments everyone!!

Carla,
Yes my initials "EB" are floating around! I'm glad someone caught that. There is also an "M" for Mary Blair, one of my favorite artists!

How smart you are to make the back ground black, it works so very well with your bubbles and with the illo. It's just GREAT.

Seth Russell said...

Really cute idea, and very nicely done illustration.

Hi Eren,
I have been a silent visiter to your site recently, checking everyday for something new! I just love your style!!!
BTW I posted on this bath piece because it is just lovely!! The way you painted the bubbles are so different and add such movement to the painting. They remind me of the effect of "the crayon rainbow under the black paint,"( which you scrape off when you draw), that we all used to make in grade school. (Oh I hope I'm not the only one who knows what that is.....)
Keep posting!!!

Eren said...

Hi Krista!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I realy enjoyed working on this piece. And the whole "crayon rainbow under black paint" is indeed the inspiration for this!! I totally remember that in grade school! Ahhh those were good times...

The other inspiration for this is the Sing Sweet Nightingale/Bubble scene in Cinderella. I don't know if you've seen it but it's a great sequence.

Perhaps I should have mentioned all of this in my post...oh well. Glad you like it! Thanks so much again Krista! =)
