Fantasy Earrings by liiga Fantasy Earrings by liiga
I should be doing many other things right now, but every once in a while there's a time where you're too tired to be coherent, but somewhere in the back of your mind there's this nagging feeling that you should draw something anyways. I decided that this time it'd be the perfect opportunity to do something simple, enjoyable and shiny - and potentially practical, in case I run out of design ideas for portraits etc. Also it's sometimes nice to jot down ideas before they fly away. </rambling>

Anyhow, hope you enjoy them. They're not to be copied, redistributed, used as stock of some sort, cross-stitched, chewed upon or inhaled - just looked at. ;P Otherwise I'll go ebil, nyeh.

Tools: Corel Painter 9 for painting, Ulead Photoimpact 8 for putting it all on one page in a reasonable fashion, Wacom Intuos 3 and mousey 'cause UP sucks with tablets. The full thing is around 2700x2500 pixels.

P.S. I'm particularly proud of the ear. Don't ask.
P.P.S. Terribly sorry about resubmitting, but things went awfully wrong with the preview image. :shakefist: @ DA's editing options.

theses are so interesting and most are unlike anything else i've seen. the spider web and the woven ones are definately the most intriguing. The idea of having things dangling from the end of gauges is very unique too. The ear is very well done as well. :)

OlgaC Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008
Well, lovely, but i'm not sure if that's the right category...
liiga Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008
Thanks! I don't think it's the right one either, I had it under designs originally, but someone from DA staff moved it there. Beats me!
OlgaC Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008
no prob ^^ Great designs :)
unique-rebellion Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2008
dude, you have the most awesome designs!

take those to a maker and you could make some major moola! I know, I made jewelry and sold it in high school and I paid for my senior trip.

And that was just dinky stuff, with those designs, you could start a business!

You could make a fortune if you sold these designs. I know I'd go out and buy them, they look fantastic!
liiga Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2007
Likely. Got anyone who can produce them in mind? :P
Sanghee Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2007  Professional Writer
Ahm...the wife of a radio DJ I listen to, her name's Natasha, opened a jewelry-making website. [link] maybe you can email here from the homepage and ask there.

I faved this earlier, but didn't have time to comment, so here I am now. :XD: Love these! They're some of the niftiest earrings I've ever seen--and I can't believe you painted them! :wow: They appear so real. I'd want to wear them if it the thought of getting that many additional holes didn't seem so painful. Cx
MorganElfan Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
i want them all. wonderful work. they are very elegant.
allison712 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
