Sunflower Skies by Vilva Sunflower Skies by Vilva
I've visited sunflower fields before and they're just the most beautiful places ever! :love: haha I love sunflowers :aww: and how they tower over me and turn toward the sun and everything! :XD: They're probably my faves, along with tulips and magnolias :dummy:
You can use this as a desktop background if you so desire!:la: (I'm using it now xD) It's not cropped to the perfect backdrop resolution, but if you use the 'fit to screen' or 'center image option' it should work! :,D

I love the title!
I'm fan of a music group (Owl City) and the one who makes up the songs and titles, also has those sorts of titles :)

Very nice work! I think you made a good decision for the composition to leave a lot of clear blue sky and focus the subject in one corner, it looks interesting and airy plus it frees the image from any cluttering. Also I'm in love with the texture.
I love the way you draw sunflowers, the stylisation is very appealing. I'm actually reminded of the way van Gogh did his flowers, even though I expect it wasn't intended here as a homage but I'm sure he'd have loved these. :D [link] .

One thing I really like is the colouring effect you used for the flowers fading into the distance. Might I ask how you made the further away ones fade into blue - an overlay layer or similar?

Oh thanks so much!! :tighthug::tighthug: I'm so glad you think so! :D I thought I should clear up the sky because I didn't want my desktop to look too messy when I used this as a backdrop :XD:

Thank you! :dummy: Oh it wasn't supposed to be a homage :blushes: But I can see how it appears so :aww: I actually drew the sunflowers without a reference.. which is probably why the petals look a bit irregular.. I love Van Gogh's sunflowers as well though! :la:

As for the coloring, it was quite simple really! I just made the opacity on those particular layers lower than that of the others :aww:

This is absolutely beautiful. The sunflower is actually my favorite type of flower. I have never been able to go through a field but I have imagined it on many a day.

Oh, I hope you do sometime! :aww: To be honest though, looking at them from afar is probably nicer :love:.. when you're actually in the field, they tower over you and you're mostly just looking at stems! :XD:

Still it would be so amazing to be even in a field of them knowing that I am surrounded by my most favorite flower in the world would be awesome.
