Artwork Description

This was done for the same client as the Nightly Forests, Autumn Whispers, and Dragonfly images I have (the Dragonfly wasn't uploaded to Epilogue due to it not being fantasy)For some reason, I forgot to upload this one here, though.This is... a bit too cutsey for me. I dunno, it's just not my 'thing'. I also feel that it's a bit too cluttery, and I somewhat prefer my original version (here)to this one (which is the art director's preferred version) because of it. Most people seem to agree with the art director, though ;P Figures.Anyway, keep your keen eyes open for the t-shirts and postcards with these images on, as well as the comic Fate of the Blade that should be available soon. I did the colours for that one.

t-shirts and postcards? *perks up* ooh! didn't say anything about that before! anyway. you already know i like the original better, but even so -- the roses and mountains in this picture (and the dragonfly imange) are -incredible-. i showed my mother the dragonfly and she thought it was a photograph. you've got an insane talent for scenery of all sorts... mountains and flowers and forests... and then combined with your insane talent for people and faces, mood, texture, composition, posing, color, wings, outfits... and just about everything else, come to think of it. Wink aah...she's so floaty. lurvly, as always. can you do no wrong?

Oh please Min Rho ?the other window pounder? with your pathetic commentaries.
?Jack of all media Master of none? comes to mind.
Hey Linda this ?poser-like? rendition is superb! Except that poser stays in proportion.
How you frankenstein these people together - laffin. Cutie pie face and hair, badly done arms and hands.
The forearm and upper arm on the extended arm needs to be revisited. Terribly mis-proportioned.
Even the ?Well-Done butterfly? gets cheapened when duped over to be wings for your stiff fae.
Hey Linda wanna play? We?ll play!

Thank you, Min. I would rather leave the mountains out, myself - I'm thinking of doing a picture that's somewhere in between the two (basically letting the blue sky remain, but also keep the additional roses. We'll see =] And, yes, I made the ladybug very dull... but it just didn't work in bright red =(

You're right. It *is* a bit cutesy for you, but you can't help that, what with this being a commission and all. I also agree the the original is better. Somehow the blue mountains in the back seem like a little too much. But those are very minor nitpicks. As usual, you drew the subject matter splendidly. I like the way you painted the light on one leg and the other leg in shadow. You paint subtle tones so well. I love the soft shadows on the petals, and the feeling of lightness in the entire painting. I mean, the girl dosen't even make an indent on the rose. At first I thought that the ladybug is a bit too dull, but now that I look at it, it seems like a conscious choice of yours-- it'd have been too garish on the rest of the color palette.

Beautiful work!! It's very pleasant to see such works! Very luxuriant imagination you have! I want to say Smile

I agree with you, it is a bit too cutesy but I am thinking the face is a little too grown up for the body. Anyway, I have to say both images of this are amazing as are all your work, and I am looking forward to all your new ones.

True..it's sugar-sweet...but it's really great that way. I actually prefer this version...it's a bit more anchored in it's frame and has more depth of field, even if there are too many luscious details to take in at once. LOVE that pink ladybug!

My name's Shari, I'm a huge fan of your artwork~I think you're amazing! Anyway! ^_^ I don't like this picture as much as all your others, it definetly doesn't have the same kind of feel as the rest! I like this one a little better than the original, but I think it would be less 'cluttery' if the mountains on the left weren't there. I dono, just my opinion! Can't wait to see your next piece!!

Guest's picture

I think I prefer the original version, though this one is still amazing, like all of your pictures. It really inspires the imagination.

Another great Image Linda, really Outstanding work. I think where working for the same Teeshirt/Card company !!! cant wait to see your stuff !

As always, stunning and inspirational digital magic! I actually prefer the other one. It is a lot more focused and I also like the effect of the scene "floating". However, I think both are beautiful pieces and quite awe inspiring. As I have said before, it pushes me on and encourages me further in my own creative pursuits.

I agree thats its almost toooo cutsey...but fantastic none the less. The orginal version is good, but i think this version that you uploaded has much more sense of depth and movement. The mountains and valleys add so much to the landscape.

Art at its best.
