..::Labyrinthine Heart::.. by kara-lija ..::Labyrinthine Heart::.. by kara-lija
Finally finished! This piece is nothing but watercolor, no digital whatsoever! 18x24 on Strathmore paper.

I love David Bowie... 

Title comes from the song "Labyrinthine Heart" by Sleepthief. It adds a beautiful mood to this piece...

Sadly, I haven't had time to be on deviantart since graduating law school well over 2 years ago, but I recently discovered Labyrinth (Late to the game, I know.) and became obsessed with Jareth/Sarah. Today, I had the thought "based on her other fan art pieces, I bet kara-lija would have Jareth fan art!!" So I came running back to deviantart to check and sure enough I wasn't disappointed!!!!! Beautiful piece!! There's something so mysteriously appealing about David Bowie... 

The song really does set such a pretty mood with this piece.

I love this movie...even though it was made before I was born it still shows what lengths he would go to for her to try and love him even though all she wanted was her brother Toby

Eeee!  This is a really great piece!  I'd in fact have to say that I think you've outdone yourself, here.  Very excellent job, wonderful composition, and I really love the colors.  Definitely don't need any digital enhancement here.  You did a great job with your traditional media.
