Somber Lila by The-Mirrorball-Man Somber Lila by The-Mirrorball-Man
The second of the three "mediocre Lilas".

There are some things I like about this one, but I think it's pretty obvious that it should either be more polished or completely chaotic. It seems to be right in the middle, which is where you usually don't want to be, artistically speaking.

Actually I really like this one, and I find it's not in the middle between polished and chaotic. It definitely tends towards the polished, adding just a bit of chaotic to add mood =P

It's not quite what I had in mind at the time, IIRC.

Well, guinea pigs are useful to discover new things too. Also, remembers me someway of Richard Corben (which I admire).

This one is my favourite under the three lilas. It reminds me a bit of "The Scream". Maybe because of her face expression?

Yes, I see what you mean. It is more expressionistic than the others.

I really like this one, the best Lila Ive seen in...i dont know..ever?
It's thick lines, and yet it got details enough

i think the tones emphasizes the angsty but warm feel to it. I see it as her sitting at home and arguing about something with her boyfriend. She looks hurt and angry. he's probably been cheating on her!

Thanks a lot! This doesn't look like what I had in mind, but I think there's something interesting in her eyes.

I agree this one seems to have a story behind it.

I don't see it as "in the middle" between polished and chaotic, but rather as "perfectly balanced". Or in other words: Just right :)

I love the colour scheme, even those white/grey bits, they somehow enhance the shapes with their sparkling.

For me this scene takes place at late evening on a beach. Someone has just left, Lila is looking at that person leaving, it seems there has been an exchange of harsh words just a few seconds ago... I see a mix of regret and anger on Lila's face.
