Scarlet sails by Zzanthia Scarlet sails by Zzanthia
adobe illustrator cs2: gradients, transparency

Based on a novel of russian writer Alexandr Grin
Story: The former seaman Longren raises his daughter Assol alone after losing his beloved wife, making a meager living by selling the toy boats he carves from wood. As a child, Assol encounters an old man who claims to be a wizard and promises the girl that one day a prince will come on a ship with scarlet sails to carry her away. The villagers scoff but Assol believes her dream will come true one day.

Arthur Grey is a nobleman's son who breaks away from his cruel father to pursue a life at sea, and eventually becomes the captain of a merchant vessel. Having set to port at Assol's village, he spies the young maiden sleeping in the forest and falls in love. After inquiring in the village he learns of Assol's dream and sets about to make it come true.

Lo trovo adorabile (come TUTTI i tuoi lavori) e senz'altro ormai sarai stanca di sentirlo dire :D
Non so perché ma mi fa pensare ai paesaggi della costiera amalfitana o a quei paesini "spagnoli" affacciati sul mare, quieti e caldi.
Mi piacciono tantissimo le ombre sul vestito e la cuffia di Assol :heart:. Di nuovo complimenti!

P.S.: Ho dato il 1000° :+fav: a questa deviation ;), mi sento come se avessi vinto qualcosa :XD:
