Eye Lemonee Featheree by friki-dayz Eye Lemonee Featheree by friki-dayz
Hello, y'all. :wave:

This is my entry for the See-Feel-Taste Contest held by :iconjules1983: :flowerpot:.

Three elements were chosen -- an eye, lemon and feather -- and it was up to me to combine all these elements (I could only use deviantART stock, by the way) into one piece of artwork. Pretty simple, right? Uhhhh...yeah...sure... :sherlock:

I wanted to use all these elements in a single entity -- everything had to mesh well together. I scanned the deviantART stock collection and came across Nano: stock, the perfect model photographed by :iconnothingreal0:. For the lemon, I chose In Lemon by :icontantawi:. And finally, I got an abstract, hand-drawn pic of a peacock feather by referencing feather by :iconmilkaddict:. I wanna thank each of these three deviants for their inspiration and artwork! :thumbsup: :salute: :ahoy:

All in all, this was a fun project. :D I got cool reference pics and I got to use more color than I usually do. :dance: I can now go back to :spork: :pie:...

You might use this drawing for the cover of a book that I will publish an independent publisher.
It is in Spain, and of course, a copy would be for you.
Thank you.

Heheheh, inspiration can come when you least expect it, especially here in dA. :thumbsup: Initially I didn't have a clear idea as to how I was going to do this piece, but once I got the stock photos everything seemed to come together rather nicely. :D

Try eating out at some exotic restaurant. Food can "inspire" in so many ways...especially when you're gasping for air while choking on a hot Jalapeno pepper. :D
