Artwork Description

This one was done 50% in Photoshop 6 and 50% in Painter 7. I've developed the strange habit of keeping both open and switching back and forth between them as I see necessary. I know many people think her neck is too thin, but I was going for an idealized reality--one that bends to my personal preference. I love long/slender necks. Laughing out loud

I switched out the old version with the jewelry, since I prefer this version withtout the jewelry more.

iv also seen the suicide story, thats how i stumbled along here as i was investigating to see if it was true im glad it wasnt. i think this is one of the best pieces of art iv ever seen, those eyes just make you zone out for a while so easily.

When i looked up mmy name one of your pictures came up, and it was beautiful. Then i looked at them all, and i have to say this picture was the most astonishing; not for it's beauty ( even though the picture is absolutely perfect) but because as soon as i looked at it i couldn't stop, and it started to look as if her hair was blowing in the wind. I sware she even blinked at me. This is amazing.

This is the best art I've ever seen, when I look into the eyes for a longer period, It changes into a even more realistic girl, and it looks like she's moving. Thanks for showing, !

yesterday for the first time i saw these picture and I don't know what to say.I look too much like her and i was afraid.My name is Rudina and everyone calls me Ruu.i thot that it was a joke of my friends but it isnt.Im looking at the picture all the time and i cant find an explonation for this.I have a long neck like the mel...s princess too and blue eyes like her.I don't know.Your work is amazing

She is very beautiful. Especially her eyes. This is my favorite. ^_^

No editors choice? Thats a shame. I love how soft it looks. Alot of the computer generated art is hard and has to many lines, even if they arent obvious. On the Contrary, yours is so soft it gives a dazeing experience. As if I'm dazed by the beauty of the girl in the picture.

Her neck is just perfect in my humble opinion Smile Great work!

You can just lose yourself in those eyes......I think i just have.

Guest's picture

Egad... -salivates- She is absolutely wonderful. The part in the hair... the slightly parted lips... the tiny indent beneath the nose... She's utterly perfect!

Guest's picture

I'm speechless right now, wow! This is so beautiful! Wow!

Guest's picture

OMG, I really love it. I wish I could make artwork at least half as good as this!!! I have always had an image of a femal in the back of my mind that always comes back every so often as if asking for something and this work of art reminds me exactly of that woman in my mind. I probably sound like a freak but I love this so much!!!

I absolutely love this piece and the Snow piece you have. I think those are your two best works you have posted up. I'm not too fond of your watercolors. In all honestly I think you should stay with Photoshop 6 and Painter 7. Other than that I love the artwork and don't worry about the neck being too thin. It looks good.

Guest's picture

I don't love your artwork in general, but this picture put a spell on my heart.

Guest's picture

Wow.. I am absolutely stunned. She is beautiful!! Smile
