MoonVisionStudio, hehe, yes, i like her like that, big hands are not a bad things after all
First of all, thank you so much for the closeups, they’re mindblowing.
Regarding hands: Hands are expressive as face, and making a little bit “bigger” enhances the expression of the character. Of course, it’s just my opinion…
Melanie, wonderful to see new work from you. I think this is your best. The colors, the lighting, the whole mood of the piece is stunning. Your style is perfect for this kind of work. And the amount of detail in her clothing, despite the softness of the picture, blows me away. Beautiful work, just perfect. :love:
(I think the hands are fine–I’ve got huge hands myself and they lend a subtle kind of power to her.)
stunning lady beautifully painted.
fine work Melanie….
the details are fantastic and i even like the tree and the landscape behind her.
Superb ! Probably my favorite of yours. Beauty and sensuality. Difficult not to fall in love with your character. Deserve an award in my opinion.
Great work ! *****
Hi Melanie, this is my favorite piece so far that you have done. I especially love the soft tones of the painting, her golden hair and the delicacy of the clothes. I also find that although the hanging arm/hand are quite large they still fit in beautifully with the composition! Great work.
Always a pleasant surprise to log on and see new work from you. Great as usual. Artist like you inspire me to keep painting.
Beau! five stars from me. the softness, the details, high Caliber work! The colours are so kick ass!
perfect!!!nice light!5 starts!
Very cool pict. Maybe my fav so far. Insane fabric work. Cool face.
Less cliché to me (to bounce on our previous discussion).
I feel like having a mint tea with you now
Oh boy, oh boy! Melanie, you have my respect! This is absolutely stunning! I’ve been seeing your great work through ImagineFX, and let me tell you, it’s really jawdropping. Congratulations! +5
she’s stunning! [and looks a bit like Nicole Kidman ;)] :bounce:
