Artwork Description

The doves should not be white, my love,No more than your lonely tears.And yet, white they remain,Pure like your innocence,Even in the face of sin.The doves should not be white, my love,Forgive me for tainting them black. Forgive me, my love, the sin was all mine.Aah, and a word on androgyny; I find it beautiful, and especially in a character that is nonhuman. This is a God of Light in the picture – who is to say how gender should be depicted among gods, fae, or elves? Not that anyone who hates androgyny should be looking at my stuff anyway ;] Except for self-torture purposes.

Ah this is marvellous. The delicate colors, so carefully blended together. That flower is amazing, too. It's a nice touch, in just the right spot.

Very etherical!! Has very much a farie-tale feel, like the whole picture is fragile. And the guy, he is pretty!! (and who says men shouldn't be beautiful?)

I know this is going to make me sound like a total nerd but WOW! If I could like you I would die happy even if I was ran over by a train . Your work always inspires me. I was about to give up drawing and writing this summer until I saw your pictures.Now I am trying to work harder at being more creative as well as learn to have more fun with what I do.
Do you have prints for sell?

breathtaking, as always...there is one thing thou...and i mean no disrespect, after all, I will never compare to your talent...but, the face, it looks like, a mask, as if it was glued on or something, i think it´s because of the... hm...dunno the english word(kontur) of the right side of the face, or something...but that doesent change the fact that this piece is a stunning masterpiece...

I've seen this picture on your Dev account, but what the heck, I'll post here too Laughing out loud Bah Liptak! Get away from the technicalities and just enjoy the picture, dude ~_^! What I like most about this picture is the soft treatment that's consistent throughout the picture--from the content to the technical aspects, it's a very romantic picture that depicts an insightful character, especially for me, since I'm all about storytelling. Plus that drapery's just friggin' awesome. Hana Hou!

I agree with the sentiment. It always puzzles and annoys me when people complain about something, but they keep gravitating towards it. Why whine about it? It's like people who complain about the cold, but keep pouring ice down their pants. I have no pity for such folk. But that's way off topic. The pic is typical, ethereal Linda. But it's even more delicate than usual-- like it's made from edible rice paper they use on candy. So airy and sparkly and delicate-- add a little moisture and it melts away entirely.

You are a great artist , one of the best but the men you draw look like breastless gils.

The cloth is perfect. So real, almost touchable. Very nice.

I like the more subtle details of this one...it really fits the mood and gives it a serene, dusk-like quietness. The castle silhouette is beautiful, and of course I never see better androgyny than that created by your hand. Laughing out loud (Besides, men look the best with a few feminine qualities...i.e. Legolas. Tongue)

I'm captivated by this picture. Just like all of your other work, this one is exquisite. I disagree with one of the previouse comments. I think that the simplicity of the background in combination with the pale/ivory coloring give this picture a mystical, dreamy aura and a tranquil ambience that only enhance its allure. Great job! You are truly an amazing artist. I've visited your gallery dozens of times and each time your work takes my breath away. I only hope that you continue to post your work for envious artists like me to gawk at in utter admiration.

This peice...I just can't understand how beautiful this is. At first glance to me it was a strange beauty, now I can't tell. I love the simplicity and the poetry you wrote.

mermalior's picture

I don't like the background, it is too simple, and the colors are not weighted. The body is great, but the glitterings in his/her hair are... strange. Too much for me. Anyway this is not a bad pic, I like the ethereal feeling, and the celestial lights. Perhaps the details are in not your level. Your last pics were more detailed...

He visit girls in their dreams, and they'll never awake... ;o) This is great!

Guest's picture

Wow! That's amazing! I hope be as good as you one day! I was wondering where you got those line about the doves? Agian Your ability just is so amazing.

Some times I just check in to see if you have posted something new. Everytime it is like a little present for me, to see a new posting by you, and I am never disappointed. In this picture, I don't think I have ever seen a robe done better. Thanx for the present.

This is very soft and elegant. Not caring or noticing the androgeny part.
Beautiful!

There's something to be said about breathing life to paper or canvas in such a way... and even when your canvas is, like my own preferred medium, intangible, the ability to have mastered such a thing is incredible.

The fact that you put prettyboys on it helps, too *_*; *laughs* Funny thing, too, I'm usually one to be able to pick apart a piece of art step by step, and knowing what tools are available, find out how certain things were done... and apparently, you cheat and use magic Tongue Seriously, I'm breathless, especially at this piece.

The ivory irridesence of the being's skin is breathtaking...and the fold of cloth at the hip are masterful.
This whole work is infused with magick and beauty...I simply love it!

I'm happy to be the first to comment on your new piece. It has a subtle beauty that is memorable and unique. I think you are right about androgyny - if a non-human being is neither male nor female, then you have depicted one perfectly.

Art at its best.
