Herbstling [EN/DE]

in artzone •  6 months ago


The storm is raging outside the windows, so I think it's time to introduce you to my autumnling from 2014. This little creature has somehow grown close to my heart. Well camouflaged between the leaves, the autumnling comes out at this time of the year to enjoy the play of colors, while the dancing will o' the wisps are reflecting in his eyes.

Vor den Fenstern tobt der Sturm, daher denke ich, es ist Zeit, euch meinen Herbstling aus dem Jahr 2014 vorzustellen. Dieses kleine Wesen ist mir irgendwie besonders ans Herz gewachsen. Gut getarnt zwischen Blättern kommt der Herbstling zu dieser Jahreszeit heraus, um das Farbenspiel zu genießen, während sich die tanzenden Irrlichter in seinen Augen spiegeln.


This time I started again with a small clay figure with a skeleton made of wire. I painted this figure completely black with acrylic paint.

Angefangen habe ich auch dieses Mal wieder mit einer kleinen Knetfigur mit einem Skelett aus Draht. Diese Figur habe ich mit Acrylfarbe komplett schwarz angemalt.


If you work with digitally edited photography mostly, you always have to consider what you take on the original photo and what you digitally add. In this case, I decided to photograph the figure with these beautiful, red leaves wings. I also set up the entire scene with the small piece of wood he´s sitting on and the surrounding leaves.

Wenn man wie ich in den meisten Fällen digital Fotos bearbeitet, stellt sich immer die Frage, was man auf dem Ursprungsfoto schon aufnimmt und was man digital hinzufügt. In diesem Fall habe ich mich dazu entschieden, die Figur schon mit diesen wunderschönen, roten Blätter-Flügeln zu fotografieren. Auch die komplette Szene mit dem kleinen Stück Holz auf dem er sitzt und den herumliegenden Blättern habe ich direkt fotografiert.


So I could limit the image editing to adjust the colors, add textures and paint over some spots digitally.

Somit konnte ich die Bildbearbeitung darauf beschränken, die Farben anzupassen, Texturen hinzuzufügen und manche Stellen digital zu übermalen.

8 months ago I already wrote a post about this picture, which was pretty pointless with a handful of followers. It got exactly 2 upvotes. Maybe this time I will get 3!

Vor 8 Monaten habe ich schon über dieses Bild einen Post geschrieben, was ziemlich sinnvoll war mit einer Handvoll Followern. Hierfür gab es genau 2 Upvotes. Vielleicht schaffe ich dieses Mal 3!

It's been so long since I've last sent you SBD. And I got so many upvotes!!! I was beginning to wonder when it would ran out. 😂


Thank you so much, but this is not a painting ;)


You got me fooled. Wait... is this a photo of a sculpture?

Beautiful artwork @patschwork! Great use of complementary color and really like that you used leafs as wings. :)

Your autumnling is gorgeous ! I love his large, expressive eyes so much, @patschwork :) The way he's holding the two large, autumn leaves as if they are wings is just so adorable <3


Thank you so much, dear spider! He´d love to hear that ♥

I'm always impressed by the way you manage to convert everyday life's common items into some fantastic picture's magic component :D
This one is a beauty of its own kind.
I love the automnal ambiance, and the soft opposition of your green and reddish tones.
Well done Miss @patschwork ! :)


Merci beaucoup, monsieur @berien :)

What a cool dark mysterious little character. It kinda reminds me of the awesome stop motion animations that would be recorded for Tool's song film clips!


Thank you! Yeah I know these videos and I hope to find the time one day to play with animation as well..
