Gorgeous atmosphere.

Oh my godness - so many comments, I am totally flattered this has been received so well until now.

I definately wouldn't call it perfect. I am still trying to find a good balance between leaving some parts painterly and rough and really focuse on special parts/details. Thank you very much though

Thank you!

Thank you kindly :]

Thank you I really enjoy painting semi transparent clothing's actually pretty easy if you get the hang out of it (and happy accidents help too )

Aly, thank you so much (also for the guestbook entry). This is the second piece (next to my unfinished dragongirlthingie) that I painted semi transparent clothing. It's actually quite easy once you have a good base going. I was already asked to make a quick tutorial about this. Truth is I am pretty much letting it develop (much like the fabric tutorial I made for the 2D Artist Magazine). There are also some happy accidents woven in there. Mainly leftovers from the actual speed color test and sketching that was underneath.

I think I already mentioned how much I love that devil girl of yours. Why is it not on the forums Mister?

Gonna take a short break - I'll be back later (and thanks so much for the frontpage plug! just realized that <3)

*sigh* Tascha you failed! Its still raining and cold outside
na j/k lovely work! makes me even more waiting for the summer I especially love the hair (like every hair you do in your specific way) and her clothes, I have something similar at home and hope to wear it soon again =)

Deserved to be on the frontpage
Han shot first!

Wow! Your mastery of colour and tone is stunning. Not many paintings take me away somewhere else when I look at them but this one definately does.

I nearly didn't click on the frontpage thumbnail because I thought it was just another portrait study, glad I did though!

I forgot: Aly I uploaded a slightly bigger version just for you The link is somewhere a bit earlier I think

Thanks - that's an even bigger compliment if the painting actually made you comment this time :] And your avatar always reminds me of a one of the German Big Brother inhabitents who was in one of the first showings of that show in Germany. Can't remember his name though.

It's always nice to hear that something can actually evoke some feelings. Spring and Autumn are already done (Winter too but I am really going over all of them again..) They are in my cgportfolio

(hehe what a funny nick) Thanks a lot! I was a bit insecure about the composition..but I really wanted to work with a narrow high format here. To give her even more air to breath and have the watchers view raise up in the sky and into the clouds.

Bobby, thank you very much

I think some of my problems is that I tend to overdetail things - and it just doesn't end up well. Like I mentioned before I tried to find a good balance in this. It's not optimal yet though but I am a bit more happy with how this turned out detail wise. Thanks for the compliment!

So funny! We were just watching the latest episode of Lost yesterday (damn I love that show, they definately know how to keep us on our toes..) and I really love that actress' face. I think she is really beautiful. However I don't think she looks like her?

Thank you - hehe your avatar sure glows more then her face

yeah - I was pretty sure someone would mention the height. It's a give or take I guess. The idea was to make all the four seasons this height and change the colors on the sky slowly over the four paintings (like they would be one big painting cut into four pieces). I was actually considering cropping it for the upload here but it is actually part of my intention and the idea behind the painting to have the view go up into the sky (following the balloon and into the clouds). I also think it makes it more airy and gives her even more space to breath.

Thank you so much. I really worked hours on her face to try to get the look I wanted. I am happy it doesn't just look blant :]

oih - I am not quite sure what to answer to such a big compliment really. Muchas Gracias

Glad you like - and what kind of greek stuff?

thanks a lot - I don't think atmosphere is a strong point of me but I am really happy you think it works here.

Benita, vielen Dank! When are you going to continue on your challenge btw? I am waiting for updates from you

to say the painting works for itself is definately agreat compliment - thank you <3

hehe - that's a totally cute comment - holiday loves are the best

Alexandra, aww damn - I tried :( I hoped it would bring at least some warmth to all the not so sunny countries (Switzerland still has tons of snow too :/)) And that must be a lovely dress. I had a smiliar one like this when I was younger..I plan to buy something similar once it gets warmer here too.

Thanks again so much to everyone for the feedback <3
I almost forgot to thank Orcoyoyo over at DA for some valuable input

After all the saying that "She is in the summer of her life" pretty much means she might still look young but is already strong and grown up - knowing where she is going in life. Ok, I just love to put a lot of metaphors into my paintings..

And specially for Aly:
the full painting in 25%

Hehe,nice to see ur works to the front page!well done ,maybe I prefer asian looking girl,haha,anyway ,I am really ur paiting works ,keep the good works and good luck everyday~cheers!

This is just great, a very nice composition bringing exactly the emotions you intented to give. I feel so relaxed looking at this pictures, it's a very peaceful piece! Bravo!
