this was for a portfolio for the 2-D portfolio AP exam, which it has been several months passed. my concentration was something like plants (or vegetation such as fruits,vegetables, and other plant/thing that grows from nature) with human characteristics, or vise-versa. this one i thought of an orange being pregnant. and so, i drew an orangy woman pregnant, and you can see the baby seeds inside too :)

sorry that i rushed on this one. my time was really tight 'cuz i had a lot of things goin' on at that time....

I think you really captured something gorgeous about being pregnant. I guess you could say,you know there's something wonderful hidden inside! :) I really love the look on her face, the belly button / juice drip, and the all over color of the piece. Also love the texture of the peel / skin. Gorgeous!

GORGEOUS!! This is incredibly original and very well executed. I love the color scheme and the vibrant (almost mouthwatering) vibes you've created. I love the seed element as well. Super creative piece. :+fav:

I really love that idea- really different and wonderfully thought out :)

I'm working on my portfolio myself... :faint: it's getting a bit discouraging though :sigh:.
emilynguyenart Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2007  Professional General Artist
Aww don't give up! Which portfolio are you working on?
VampKitty9 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2007
I decided on the drawing portfolio :) luckily for me, painting is included in it, or I wouldn't have been able to decide what to do since most of what i do is a mix of drawing and painting.

The colours are gorgeous I like the belly button and the circle behind her, also the idea of the baby pips is smart.
Uglymuffintop Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2006
That's a very unique concept. The different orange tones really make her look more exquisite. Great job on the details, especially her hair and her clothes, which look grand. Divine work. :heart:

where does it look like you rushed on it?
emilynguyenart Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2005  Professional General Artist
i think i rushed on the airbrush shading and the lineart, or something. this one's old, so i can't remember what else seemed rushed besides what i said lol.
ReinForever Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2005
Wow...what a concept. I would think that the woman in the picture was the mother...but it's really the orange. XD This is awesome. The color scheme and shading is beautiful. I love the lighting effects. <3 Great work.
NovellineArt Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
I'm a little disturbed, but that's not to say it isnt amazing. I think its the skim (I'm a major sensitive get heebee jeebees kind of person) But you drew it amazingly. I'm sure you got a 5. I'm pretty sure they are out of 5, lol. I'm taking a history AP in a few months, odds are it wont be this fun/ Anyway, astounding piece. :)
nerdycanuck Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That is such an interesting concept. Wow..!!
Lelenia Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2005
That is beyond cool! The baby orange seeds are really cute, and the whole piece is so fun and original and imaginative! Plus, orange is a neat colour! :) I really love it!! :heart:
