Artwork Description

This picture is my best so far.. I had this idea for a long time.
It has taken me about a month to finnish (I dont work constantly but anyway)

I have painted it only in photoshop 7. The most used tools are the brush, both hard and soft, and eraser. I had a few layers..
the original is 8000x3900, so its possible to make a poster of it..

The idea of the clothes and makeup is to show something different, something beautiful, goth and mystical. I have played around with colors and the main ones used are the green DA like color and pink.

Oh my... it's breathtaking!
I am still very young and unexperienced, but beautiful, realistic and simply perfect work like yours encourages me to go on and learn more and more, no matter how long it takes. You're an inspiration, I truly mean it.
I'll be waiting for your next work Wink

That is one of the most alluring and intruiging pictures I have ever seen. I love the use of the black and the only slight color to enhance the overall mood and tone of the picture...lovely. It's really well done; you're talented.

Amazing detail.Your color choice is perfect. Actually I can't find a thing wrong. Even the BG only serves to enhance the character. Well done!

thx alot

Guest's picture

I'm gonna kill you and steal your artistic powers! This is an awesome painting! First of all, it is almost photo-realistic, which says a lot right there. Secondly, I love your use of color; subtle, yet bold. Your composition is very effective too, and I love the facial expression on her face. I can see why you say this is your best picture...it's excellent! Keep at it, man!

artea's picture

Huh, beautiful!
The lips look great as do the eyes - and the feathery thing she is wearing as well as her hair look most realistic!

ekearney's picture

That is beautiful, especially her face. The clothing is wonderful as well. Very, very impressive.

thrax-1's picture

superb effort!she looks amazing.the detail,the costume even the background is well done Wink.Great work Egil!

Guest's picture

It's beautiful!!! I've always loved somewhat darker pieces, and this one matches my preferences perfectly!
I admire your eye for detail... and the superb lighting combined with excellent choice of texture make this picture one of my favorites on Epilogue..
I wish I could say more good things about this picture, but the beauty of it has suddenly made me run out of useful adjectives.
Thank you for commissioning your work.... I hope to see more of it

Art at its best.
