Romeo and Juliet by allisonbamcat Romeo and Juliet by allisonbamcat
This is part of a 6-panel series on Shakespeare that I did for my junior year spring semester.



This one is based on Romeo and Juliet: two families feuding, two lovebirds destined for death.



Gouache on hot press illustration board and tissue paper, along with some other mixed media. About 14 hours.

It's a shame this doesn't have more favorites on it. I love the concept of this picture and the way you used tissue paper instead of plain old colored pencils or digital coloring. The composition really draws my eye to the Romeo and Juliet pinatas as well.

Also congrats on the DD! Hopefully some people looking at that piece will take the time to look through the rest of your gallery.

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate the comment.

Knowing digital media, sometimes it seems easier to just do it that way. But there's something special about physical art that can only exist in one place at a time. Which is why I love painting so much. <3

Personally I don't find digital media easy to use at all. >>; It's just different- neither medium should be neglected I guess.

Was just sniffing around pictures when this came to my attention. I've gotta say this is actually really cleverly done, both in the way you've portrayed this and how you've gone about it. The message is cute, yet concise and clear. On top of that, you're using an art form I really do enjoy seeing because it's hard to pull off properly (Least I think it is anyway). Still, this is down right bloody great, so I'll fave this methinks.

My goodness! This is an amazing piece of art o-o I'm being totally serious! The originality is what grabbed me, taking an idea and manipulating into something fresh, funky and so darn cute :heart: I love how you've captured each moment and represented it in such a sweet way. I wanna cry when I see the broken pinata!
I really really like this piece, very well done and very original, excellent job!
