The Clockwork Wimble by Oddeum The Clockwork Wimble by Oddeum
Hey guys I'm not dead.
Spring is a busy time on the farm, and 8000 relatives decided to visit all at once; which was fun, but left no time whatsoever for art.
Then when it was quiet again, I decided I'd paint a picture with A; a weird perspective that took me forever to draw, and B; details.
Lots o them.

And yet for all the time making this, I'd wish I'd put in more details. It doesn't feel crowded enough :grump:

Anyways, I'm glad with how this turned out! It's a scene from my story, 'Narrow Ways' eccentricteatime.deviantart.co… where the young magician apprentice (the girl) explores her master's magical shop, The Clockwork Wimble.

Tools: Schmincke Horadam Watercolors, sepia ink, dip pen, white gel pen, and paintshop pro

EDIT: Oh my gosh, I had a heart attack when I was scrolling through DD's and saw my work heart attack Thank you so very much!!
I wish I had the time to thank every individual for the :+fav:s, llamas and Watches; I'm so honored you like this work! Thanks again!

It's exactly pictures like these that actually made me want to be an artist in the first place, haha. This is just so nostalgic! There's SO MUCH things to see and peruse through and make up stories from!

(Sorry for the absurdly late reply)

Thank you so much, that is an amazingly motivational thing to say! So many artists inspired me to start or keep drawing, and the idea that I'm doing the same fills me with warm butterflies!

So many details! @__@ That must have taken forever to paint! I'm awed :clap: Perspective is very well done, as well as shading. But what I like best about this piece is the ecclectic and slightly magical feel of the shop itself. Right out of a storybook! Gotta check out that story of yours now.

It surely did take forever >: (
To date its the longest its ever taken me to paint something; 27 days! Though most of that was staring in mute horror at perspective points, :lol:

I'm glad you like it! I was so happy to finally put the 'Clockwork Wimble' to paint and ink.

Oh, uh, I took down all the chapters I'd uploaded of the Narrow Ways; after three years of edits they're were quite outdated :XD:

27 days? I can imagine @____@

About Narrow Ways -> That would explain why I couldn't find it. It's okay, though, I guess I'll read it when you get around to update it?

YUP. :grump:

I just finished with a major editing, and I'm hoping to send it to an agent soon. If you're interested (and had the time) I would love for you to proofread the first chapter and give me your opinion! I would send it to you over email.

I sure would! I'd love to give you feedback, it would be an honor, though I must warn you I'm quite the critique haha :P
I'm not a flamer, though. I have been working on a fantasy book project for over 2 years now, so I know what it feels like to work very hard on something, editing and re-editing it countless times and still feel insecure about it.

Anyhow, I wish you the best of luck with your novel! :glomp: Traditionnal publishing is a huge step and quite a challenge, I gather. Don't give up if it gets rejected the first few dozen times - at least, that's what everyone says. If all else fails, you should seriously consider self-publishing. Self-publishing via kindle/amazon books is a very pragmatic option these days, look it up. 

Hope you make it! :D

Thank God, a harsh critic!
I love the people on DA, but most of them are very gentle and nice and their criticism is limited to 'here's a typo', rather then 'The hell is this? You call this a character motive?' which I desperately need :XD:
So don't you worry; I have thick skin.
My problem is I've read it so many times I can't 'see' it anymore. I'm mostly curious about this; would you, the reader, continue reading the novel after the first chapter?

Thanks so much! Fingers crossed.
I'm strongly considering self-publishing if traditional publishing doesn't work out.
I just sent you the first chapter via email! Please be as vicious as possible :D

Just letting you know - I got your chapter but I haven't had the time to read it so far. I don't want to read it with my mind on something else, but I'll definitely get around to do it within the week :)

such details and that perspective was really awesome. I want to draw from this perspective as well but can never quite imagine it.

Yeah, the perspective killed me. I have never taken this long on a painting before, simple because of that stupid horse in the corner; somehow it never looked right.
Worth it though! I need to keep working on new angles :D
