i like the fact that you can see she is thinking about something while looking into the river,
no crits yet, just because its an early wip.

do you realy think that by signing it you are not going to polish it to death ?

05 May 2006, 12:50 PM
Haha, of course I still love it. The colors are so vivid and the background is looking awesome. I also really like the pose of the girl, she looks really expressive. Nice work!

cool pic as usual i like the inviroment :love: keep up the good work my friend

This is looking very beautiful! For some reason I can picture her dress colour changing to a turquoise blue. I think perhaps it's because this piece reminds me of Ted Nasmith's Luthien Tinuviel to some degree. And that blue looked fantastic contrasting with the green foliage. :)

It's been awhile since I got see another wip from you. I think the last I stumbled into was the girl holding a black rose in front of the mirror?! I love the forest in this one. Such richness of green and the river is beautiful. The lady looks very pensive...lost in thoughts..I wonder what she's thinking about...Just great great painting! :bounce:

I like it. Your style reminds me of the cards game magic the gathering somehow... Dunno why ;). Keeo going

10 October 2006, 05:11 PM
This is looking great. One thing that bothers me are the 'white' highlights at the top; I think it would work better if you add more color to it (a light blue or yellow perhaps? maybe set it to soft light).

Other than that, great progress. Looking forward to updates.
