Excellent! Again, an amazing rendering of a shiny surface: I love that little bit of ice on her face. Good choice of colors as well.

hey about bloody time you submitted something... they colours and textures look great... nice one! i hope you're doing more.

she looks like she's kind of sad though, i only noticed the expression as that is the look i give when i get out of bed and realise my brother has used the last tea bag and i need to go up to the shops to get more... *sigh*...

You know, I think everyone has a tea bag story. Me, I just bash the person with my shoe til I get the tea bag back.

Also, you're not the only one to say Nova looks sad. I didn't mean her to look that way. But then again, I usually draw when I'm either angry or sad, and my pictures tend to reflect my mood, even without my permission.

This is why I don't draw cartoons. Too dangerous. My face might stick like that.

Daniel never means that. He says it a lot because he's humble and he doesn't want anyone getting into his secret stash of coconut macaroons. Magic macaroons.

Very nice treatment, Rio.

I like the saturation of the color, and the way that you have employed the different mediums to achieve the overall composite effects. Mixing mediums is always a challenge, but you seemed to have used each one in the areas best suited for the general characteristics.

The gradation on the background gives it a very ethereal setting, and the white line around the figure helps to seperate it from the background, seeing as the colors harmonize so well with those in the foreground. I think the purple helps to bring the lower left area forward even more. The bold highlights work well with your style. This would make a great poster for ballet or theater.

Excellent features, and the elaboration on the face is a nice touch, also. Eyes of ice contrast with her warmer flesh tones. I love the treatment on the hair, which gives it a 3-dimensional feel, and there are lots of little details to entice the viewer beyound the superficial first glance.

Vibrant! Keep up the fine work!!

:D

It is a very good picture, Megan. Sorry to see such a nice Lady so sad. I like the way it fades around her as if she were in some sort of mystical fog.

M'Lady,

I remember playing along side of the street when those DDT trucks passed by spraying for mosquitoes. Imagine what it did to our brains? No wonder my generation turn to hallucinogenic drugs, and became hippies!!

My friend Ash was encouraged to go outside and play behind the trucks. I think her parents were trying to kill her. lol :P
