Rosebud

6:41 AM


It's day two of the Black and White challenge with The Digital Dozen!  Today I wanted to try a new design and as you can see, it did not go so well!  I think I needed to choose different colors because my ring finger sort of just looks like some blobs.  But I still had fun with it.  The inspiration was Citizen Kane. A black and white film by Orson Welles.  I've seen the film a few times and honestly, I'm not super impressed by it but apparently it's supposed to be the greatest American film of all time. In either event at the end of the film he dies with a snowglobe in his hand and the last words he utters are "Rosebud".  It ends up that this is a childhood sled he had, which is the only happy memory he has of his entire life. Sad, no? I made some red rose buds to sort of emulate this.  I hope you liked it and don't forget to check out the other girls artwork for day two!!

  7. Way to ruin the movie for me! Just kidding :p I love the concept of this mani - with your ring finger really coming to life, like his memory. I knew your inspiration without having to read the post, excellent idea :D

  9. I think it turned out well, despite what you said. I definitely got roses not blobs from this. I really love your sketch, loose, painterly quality, especially in the black and white roses. In the red roses, maybe if the two colours were more different in terms of value the rose aspect would come out more. Sometimes I just add white to get my lighter value when I'm doing roses.
