Jewel Thief by NicolaWallace Jewel Thief by NicolaWallace
This is a piece I designed for a competition to advertise Swarovski crystals. I wanted to emphasise 'natural beauty' and I was aiming to imply their jewellery collections were so beautiful that nature decided to steal them back. (I didn't upload the version with the logo here.)

Anyway, I really love drawing birds and plants. I have no end anatomy books and wildlife books. I guess it's a passion? Or a hobby? I hope to one day become an expert in recognising breeds of birds... It'll probably never happen as I'm far too forgetful with names or species.

Enjoy!

The jewels look really pretty. I like the fact that it's quite simple and the colours are not aggressive. People tend to overuse bright colours. And the bird's head is great, there are some emotions in its look.
Oh, and the frame is beautiful, too!

I spent such a long time just trying to figure out how to do the jewels and make them stand out a bit. (I'm quite pleased with how well the colour ink washes work though haha.) I'm always frightened that the colours will look a bit too much or a bit too washed out, it's a pain to find a balance. :P I really appreciate the kind feedback! Thank you! And also Thankyou for the watch. :)
