Okay, so like millions out there I am a hufe Twilight fan and therefore I decided to express my love by making an oil painting of a member of the creepy Volturi clan.

For those of you who are not familiar with Twilight, the main characters of Twilight, the Cullens are 'vegetarians', they only consume the blood of animals, whereas a family known as the Volturi consume human blood. Both the Cullen and the Volturi families are kidna rare because they have so many vampires living amongst one another, and quite a few members of both families have special abilities. The Volturi are described as the vampire royal family living in Italy, in deep dark tunnels underground. They have red eyes, until the Cullens who have topaz eyes (due to their diet) and the Volturi wear black cloaks. I decided to change the colour of the cloak...

And anyways, here it is (with a weird camera glare in the picture):

PS. I really recommend Twilight to whoever hasn't read it.

Ooh, another twilight_crafts person on Craftster!  I loved this picture when I saw it there, and I'm so glad you're sharing it with everyone on here.  I'm drusilladom there by the way. Smiley

Wow! I really think that's neat!

This is an area where I have no talent at all, so I'm always impressed by paintings. Smiley

We loves us some Twilight at my house, too. My girls (11, 11 and 13) have read all the books, and we've all seen the movie a whole bunch. I agree, if you haven't read it, do!

I pretty much forced everyone I know to read the books (I used to work at a library and would randomly put the series on hold for people... without them knowing, they would read it, love it and pass it on)...

As I have said before, I am NOT a Twilight fan. In fact, I am the opposite of one (yes, I have read them, sadly).

Having said that, this is BEAUTIFUL.  Shocked The detail in the cape is absolutely amazing. It totally looks 3-dimensional; I want to touch it! I love the dark and mysterious look in her eye.

Absolutely amazing work. Smiley

Very nice use of colour. Instead of black you can use dark violets to get even more depth too. You've captured a very eerily young face nicely, though There's a dark fold right above her eye that competes for focus with her face. Toning down the contrast there will help to pull the focus back to her face. Otherwise I really love how you've handled the cloth.

My art teacher and TA just spend the last month trying to drill into my head not to use black paint and use darker purples and blues (not that this painting was the mentioned project)... It is really difficult to break bad habits... But I now completely understand after seeing some pieces by my fellow students... Thanks for the comment!
