An old-fashioned scent by messalyn
An old-fashioned scent
2015, July and completed 2016, February. Watercolor and silver ink on 25x33cm Vallis Clausa 100% Cotton watercolor paper.

Newly found under piles of aulde documents, well-hidden between two antique photographs, this illustration has the distinct smell of a golden age that distance has but embellished. Although, a second look might reveal some tear and wear on those dream-like attires, now moth heavens… and wedding hells.

Talkino by messalyn
2015, October. Graphite and graphite watercolor on 25x33cm Vallis Clausa 100% Cotton watercolor paper.

Silent Film, Silent Voices? Or Bright Laugh? All the shades of black and white from real life fun to rough historical context, with a pinch of flappers insouciance.

Provencal Herbarium by messalyn
Provencal Herbarium
2015, July. Watercolour on 26x36cm Arches Watercolour hot-pressed paper. Original title : Herbier Provencal.

The series goes on with this one that I forgot to post. It's one of the first herbarium I wanted to paint back in 2014, specifically around this dress, but at the time I had postponed it so I could make instead the autumn-themed ones instead and actually release them at the relevant time of the year!

Grey pinecone with needles by messalyn
Grey pinecone with needles
A simple life study that I turned into printed tights thereafter amongst some other pine cones. See the result on my blog!

As I loaded the "new journal" page I just remembered how I wanted Deviantart to be my english-speaking art gallery on the web and how I liked the idea of my website to be more frenchy... It's based on my perception of asian websites, they represent the coolest mystery to me, with artists hardly merging with international comms and pages that you can't read and only translate once in a while...

Well, things have changed and in the end I'm happy with the fresh new start I gave my little website. I actually enjoyed the cleaning FTP part. Now I should select a few of my recent artworks and post them up there, but I really don't know which one to choose. I might have lost a bit of Bergamote's spirit but not the will that it should be the most important place. This is so anti-web 2.0, I know. Yes, I prefer intimacy to big communities, yeah. And I say I love the internet :roll:

My website HERE!!

This year I also opened a photo account and it shall remains anonymous as I like to log in once in a while and notice how photographs attract far more favs as well as far less comments than my original artworksfanarts in there. Well actually I'm not that bitter as it seems, but, still. Fanarts. You guys can't never have enough, can you :roll:

Finally I chose to drop the friend list & keep my web-browsing for myself. Those icons just bug the hell out of me, no clue why. I truly dislike websites that are dead ends but in the case of deviantart there are links everywhere anyway... Commissions are gone as well. But I couldn't end this journal without linking my coquecigrux, don't worry ♡

messalyn's Profile Picture

Artist | Traditional Art
I came with the northern wind, and now live by the mediterranean sea. Not sure why I paint and if it's more than pretty images, but I work a lot on it. I like to wear pretty clothes too when I go out : Lolita fashion. This is a big passion of mine which I painted quite a lot. Feel free to add me if you love Lolita too! I'd like to discover more lolita artists out there.

Other than that, I'm a long admirer of Faery, period costumes, Beauty itself, and even, yes, graphic design.
