Labyrinth: The Royal Waltz by janey-jane Labyrinth: The Royal Waltz by janey-jane
This was supposed to just be a linework exercise (and also an excuse to draw a foofy dress) and then all the sudden it turned into srs fanart bzns. I imagine that they would toss off political duties and cut a rug whenever possible.

Also - have discovered clipping masks *IS IN LOVE*.

Labyrinth, I still love you. That's all.

*EDIT*
A couple people have suggested lovely music to accompany this piece: Shostakovich's Waltz no. 2 or Hisaishi's 'Le Chateau Ambulant' (the theme from Howl's Moving Castle)

The instant I saw this I fell in love as well. I actually ordered myself to put it in my favorites "this moment." You make them look so damn fae it's insane! I can't quite do that with my own art yet...

don't get discouraged! I still have moments where I look at peices I did (not even stuff other people did) and find myself going "how the HELL did I do that? I can't do that! It must have been someone taking over my body! Or magic!".

It's so much time and practice and work, but eventually you'll find yourself making magic happen.

Clipping masks? Did you draw this in Illustrator? *suddenly interested in actually using Illustrator*
Reply
:iconjaney-jane:
janey-jane Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
In photoshop actually, it's under the 'layer' menu - or ctrl>g on a PC keyboard (I have no idea what the shortcut is on a mac). I need to use illustrator more, there are a lot of applications that its better to work in illustrator and what few skills I once had have probably atrophied from disuse.

Shostakovich. Waltz no. 2. That is what I hear when I see this.
Reply
:iconjaney-jane:
janey-jane Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
what a beautiful accompaniment! The other suggestion I've heard is the theme/waltz from Howl's moving castle, I like that people hear music when they look at it, I think I'll add these suggestions at the bottom of the artists comments...

Mmhmm. It's now "The Goblin King's Waltz" in my head. No more Shostakovich.

I'm sure he'd be chill with that, once he knew his music was being used for such admirable things...
