Wintertime Love by Flying-Glove Wintertime Love by Flying-Glove
Wintertime winds blow cold this season
Falling in love, I'm hoping to be
Wind is so cold, is that the reason?
Keeping you warm, your hands touching me

Come with me, dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
And you are so warm
My wintertime love to be

Wintertime winds, blue and freezing
Coming from northern storms in the sea
Love has been lost, is that the reason?
Trying so desperately to be free

Come with me, dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
And you are so warm
My wintertime love to be

-"Wintertime Love", The Doors

The wind blows bitter and cold outside, and I'm not in the most positive place I've ever been mentally, but "Wintertime Love" is pure concentrated happiness in song form. It reminds me of all the beautiful little things in life that are sometimes forgotten in the chill and darkness of winter.

The old-fashioned, magical waltz feel of this song inspired me to use a sort of Art Nouveau/Aubrey Beardsley style for it. I wish you all could see this in real life, I used glitter eyeliner on it so it's covered in tiny "snowflake" sparkles.

I really enjoy this. Not only because I'm a fan of the Doors, but you did so well on it. I love the ballroom dancing idea, it's so simple, yet romantic. I love the color scheme. It really emphasizes the winter feeling. I also love how you separated the ballroom from outside. You did it in such way that it's not too much, but not too little. The texture is amazing and the detail is superb. I'm glad I wrote my first critique for this, because it really deserves it. It is just plain amazing. Lovely, wonderful job on it.

Thank you so much! I'm glad this could give you a nice wintery feeling, there's snow on the ground outside and I'm enjoying a nice cup of tea, so I'm glad to be able to share that with you in a way. :D

Oh, wow, what a compliment! You're not talking crap at all, the dream/fairytale atmosphere was entirely what I hoped people would get out of this, and I'm so happy you not only see it but love it. Thank you so much, you've made my evening!

I guess you got a new scanner^^ Anyway, this reminds me of lot of Russian story books and art actually. Might be the fashion on the lady or the sublety of the colors or overall subject matter, it just gives me that sorta vibe.

I'm using a scanner in the library, actually. ^^;

Oh, thank you! The woman's clothing was actually very much inspired by Imperial Russia. And cold and snowy weather always brings up images of Russia, at least to me. :aww:

Yes, I knew it, I'm a freaking genius xD I just rarely pin point fashion too well, but somehow that fur thing and the hair looked like something that Romanov-family would wear.

My favorite royal family as well, though probably because of the gruesome end and stories and legends around it, but you know. The girls were all beautiful^^

Though I didn' like much that Don Bluth movie of Anastasia. It just seemed to take a wonderful myth and not use it into it's full potential.

Awww, thank you so much! The song put me in a mood for fresh, cool, sparkly blues (and this picture is quite sparkly in real life), so that's what I used.

Aww, thank you so much! :D I love the feel of traditional materials.

Awwww, thank you so much! The song reminded me of pretty blue shades, so I used those. And since the song mentioned the sea, I couldn't miss out on a chance to draw old-fashioned sailing ships- I love drawing those.

Yes, this was made with Prismacolor fine-liner pens, watercolors, and glitter eyeliner (although you can't see the glitter in the scan).
