Today's Cinema Saturday Challenge is from the Movie Tristan and Isolde. This is such an epic love story. It is full of love and heartache. I gave this movie a good amount of thought before I could come up with my design. I was going to do something very "period" accurate..but just could not find the right ideas. I just kept going back to drawing an Irish Style Princess. Well, once I had finished drawing my "Irish Princess" she looked a bit more like a Meadow Princess..but I guess that is the fun of this challenge is you can take the movie into any direction that your creative minds goes. So I did a Princess to represent the beloved character Isolde. She was just the most lady like and beautiful Irish Princess. I put flowers in my designs hair to represent Isolde's wedding "look" when she was on the boat. I computer colored a mushroom that I drew. Once it was printed out I added shading to it using my colored pendils. I had never done this before and found it to be a great look on a different way to color. This challenge requirement was to use some kind of fold or gated item. I created little "wooden" doors to attach to the mushroom. I then added a crystal Heart to the inside. This is to symoblize the Love that Isolde had to hide from the world. Her heart was to keep behind closed doors.
I really had fun with this challenge. I was struggling with it a bit here and there, but in the end I had a great time! A BIG thank you to Brooke and Sankari, for the fun inspiration you gals give me each week. I am having such fun!!
