How annoying, i didnt realise there was a limit to how much you could write, ah well, it was nothing but applause anyway, nothing new..

Nice, youve got flowing capes active on the wind down to perfection. The light that enhances it all is truly incredible. Even something as simple as the snow looks effective. I find it quite a task to capture realistic rocks and mountainous terrain, so this picture teaches me loads the more i look at it. The light you chose plays well on all su

I just know Christophe, that you will be one of the great painters of 'our' time. This piece is a testament to that. That you work in oil is also very encouraging and comforting.

Thanks, Grant.
Thanks everyone for the comments.

Thank you, Johanna.
Keep up the good work in your gallery too.
By the way, the picture of you there looks almost like a painting. It's beautiful. Who took it?

Thanks, Chris.
Cool work in your gallery too.

I used partly my imagination, and partly reference pictures that I took myself. The model is a friend of mine, and I had to redesign the way her clothes are floating.

...not bad... *speechless* Eh, maybe amazing, fabulous and magnificent would fit better. Great work! Smile
Though the lighting seems a bit inconsistent. There seems to be a dark rim along the edges. Bad pgoto/scanner?

Funny thing is I saw the name attached to this image and I though it was just a similar name but upon looking through your gallery I realized it was in fact the artwork of an artist that has inspired me for a while. As always this is a great piece. The lighting is purely awesome and inspiring. Great image.

I love the sense of depth the landscape has; They way she is standing on a 'pedestal' like a Goddess. Just beautiful. A well, well deserved Ed's Pick.
