Thank you for the lovely comment and critic, dear Guest! I constantly strive to improve, and constructive observations like yours are always welcome.

Guest's picture

the shoulder line and the ground's edge somehow "connected", makes me confused for a moment.

and the face's too flat, cheekbone is not developed enough.

overall a nice work.

Thank you, Donna! I have always found hands to be the hardest thing to do too, so I make it a rule to always include at least one in every picture! practice practice! I always tell myself!

Whoa..I've been way behind! How'd I miss your newest postings? Well this so pretty! I love her eyes,and of course all the dancing faeries! Your work,as always makes me want to go and try harder with my figures.( I know I've said it before)
Your a true master James! I always love the softness and realism of your work..(Wonderful hands)They're the hardest thing to draw as far as I'm concerned.Looking forward to more!~Donna

It must take you forever to do such delicate, detailed work, James. You are truly dedicated (and a wonderful artist, too!)

somerset's picture

Great work, the eyes are lovely. Any way, I loved your work from the first time I saw it. But this time I had to say it.

Hi Rita, thank you, it's great to hear from you!

James, just wonderful. The skin tones are perfect! as well as the rest Smile

somerset's picture

Thank you, Jess! you're next...if you know what I mean!heh heh!

Guest's picture

Ooh! great eyes! Smile I love the restraint you show it this one in keeping the colors close to the tone of the paper. It's delicate and translucent, so the sharp details of the eyes and cloak and hair really stand out.

I know, Sean, sorry I read it wrong...still even so it would have been a valid point anyway! heh heh blood'n'guts and sorcery! yeah!

I didnt mean it like that James,I meant I dont see any difference in the quality of work-its always been good my man...!

somerset's picture

Ha "the McPartlin trademarks" I love it! thank you so much, Bill!

Where I live you can have the most torrential rain one moment and the most marvellous sunshine on the landscape the next! I'm so pleased you like the feel of this one, Tracy, thank you!

I love the depth of this image, and the placement of the woman in the very close foreground. Such wonderful and soft details really makes it feel like it has just rained, especially on a hot day and you can see the mist before it gets all clear. Great capture of the moment.

somerset's picture

I know I know heh I did say I'd do some darker images, Sean! and I will, what I need is a good blast of Iron Maiden and a couple of John Carpenter films! LOL! thank you my friend!

somerset's picture

Ha Thank you, Uwe, as always your comments are a real tonic!

somerset's picture

Many thanks, Varian! the model for this one was a real inspiration!

somerset's picture

Thank you, Marley! in this one I tried to get that look y'know like the sun suddenly appearing after a flash storm!

pageaxe's picture

varian's picture

So softly charming! I really like the mixed tones of her dress and how they connect with the tones of her hair.

You really have increased your skill james, your earlier stuff which i thought was amazing back then, pales in comparison to this stuff!. This is damned stunning if you ask me, the details are sublime. great work james Laughing out loud.

Art at its best.
