Was meant to be more a sun goddess, then a moon goddess... but without the title Fire Child, she could be viewed that way (moon goddess)....the image was for cd cover art..

Another beauty Tom. I love the intensity of her expression. Great rendering on the hair and those pouty lips are perfect. I think what you said in response to the comment I left on your "Siren" piece is right, we do share the same taste. Great work Tom, she's stunning.

Hey thanks Marisa ,really glad to hear this catches your eye...

This image definitely captures the viewers eye... and those eyes make you take a second (and third) look... Fabulously done all around. I do wish that her hair didnt cover so much of her left cheek... but she looks awesome with it there, as well... Ver Nice work, Tom! Cant wait to see more!

Really, really good stuff! If this doesn't grab someones eye as a CD cover, I don't know what will. Very compelling and well-rendered.

Since I got to see the color version in progress,I liked it then.And now I see you added much more detail to the hair and overall detail as well-Great job Tom!

Guest's picture

I agree with Bill, the colours have added another dimension to this - a more solid look, particularly the metal of the head-band, which adds that little bit more realism. Great work Tom!

Great colour work, Tom! especially her eyes and lips, the later have a lovely soft look to them, the original b/w was excellent and this one is EXCELLENT!

portalrun's picture

Thanks ,Manon , this version is a very true likeness to Mimi...

Guest's picture

I like in b&w, but like that, her eyes, and everythings, are again very nice!
