caffeinated herbarium by chid0 caffeinated herbarium by chid0
Art Trade with ~Haspien.
We gave eachother 5 "things that influence our lives" and could pick the one we wanted to draw - he drew me this [link] combining my "instant ramen" and "agent Scully" - so I combined too, the two items on his list that I think fit together nicely: "coffee" and "herbarium".
this is what I made of it. I envisioned something far creepier but I got carried away with the colors (earth tones <3). The plant names are all toxic specimen by the way. Oh and the books are all painted with coffee :D bonus effect: the picture smells nicely.
I hope ~Haspien will like this.

I used a mechanical pencil, my various copic utensils, color pencils and coffee. few hours worth of work.

Oh, how lovely, a painting that smells of coffee!

I really like this- the earthy tones, what a warm feeling...

It is FAR from creepy, haha.

I love the composition, and the word "Herbarium,"

too bad it doesn't anymore, I guess all the aroma has evaporated with time. but it was so nice to paint and be surrounded by the smell of coffee ^^
I think it's a good thing the creepiness didn't get into it after all, the warm an cosy feeling suits a warm cup of coffee better.

wow, nice effect here! I love the contrast between soft colours and a kind of creepy atmosphere of those poisonous specimen books and the fact you can't see her face. great work :heart:

my original aim was to make it even more creepy, she was supposed to be holding the cup of coffee and smiling suspiciously, but somehow I strayed on the way. glad you like it nevertheless ^^

No to je opravdu úžasné!! Strašně se mi líbí jaks to celé udělala jen v odstínech hnědé, vypadá to jako bys to kafem nakreslila. Skládám poklonu, je to úchvatné (b>.<;)b

This is lovely. I can completely envision such a place. With rice crisps (the asain kind) as snacks and a view onto an autumn-ish garden (alej) from the windows. :)

hehe all I can see here are block houses (panelaky) but yes I wish I had that many books (maybe not all about plants :D)
