Artwork Description

This was a commission that wound up getting a rework for Epilogue. Guess the client gets a double treat! I'll send her this one too, for being such a great sport.

Very, very beautiful...
Her face reminds me of Lea Salonga. Know her?

Too much like a character on Star Trek. Too eerie for me.

Holy hannah...what do you mean you wish you had something worth submitting?? That incredible winged girl in the field would've been a wonderful addition to Exotique! Nothing ventured, nothing gained, m'friend. You are WAY too hard on yourself!

Hey Christine! I just noticed this piece on the publicity page for Exotique! I assume it's in the book?! Congratulations! Laughing out loud ...Wish I'd had something worth submitting.. sniff...

Wow, Jessica....I'm uber-flattered! Your own color technique is radiant, so this is high praise. Thankee kindly!

Guest's picture

What a beautiful piece! I like the little things - the flowers and textures in the field, the amazing skin tones with just the right hint of blue, the pattern down the bodice. You portray this character with strength, but delicacy and grace are also a part of her.

I love color, so this really warms my cockles! Er....what is a cockle, anyway?

As I've said before, you are progessing at a really quick rate!

Amazing use of colour to evoke feeling; really amazing!

I see that despite all of the drastic perspective flaws, which I can't see, this is still obviously Epilogue quality! you are Epilogue quality christine!!! I guess you don't have to know calculus to make a good painting. I guess that means that good old fashioned art instincts still have merit.

griffingirl's picture

Yep, it truly was! I managed to forget such a basic aid as mirroring. Thanks for the kind words!

I just had a look at the earlier version you posted in wip: What a difference! There is much more brightness here, in the colors and also in the atmosphere, not so sad anymore! To mirror it was a good idea!

Beautiful beautiful work Smile Her skin tones are gorgeous, and the colors throughout the piece work so well together Smile Love it!

I'll tell ya, it's due in large part to the gang over at the WIP section of our forum. They're getting me whipped into shape, wether I like it or not! Wink

I followed the evolution of the piece on the WIP. Glad to see it here. It is simply brilliant.

portalrun's picture

Absolutely great work, Christine!! Your portaits seem to be getting tighter and crisper with every post...EXCELLENT job...

Guest's picture
