This is realy beautiful

Hm, she looks a bit strained, like she's holding her shoulders up or something. Maybe the neck could be longer to eliminate a hunched over look. The arm strumming the instrument also seems a bit awkward, like the fingers are too short or the hand is out of porportion. Her expression is also a bit off because the right eye (her right) is shadowed by the hair, making it look like she has it closed. I think that if her right shoulder were lowered like the left then it would look much better. Sorry for so much critisiscm though.

Horse/fish thingies are called Kelpies. ^_^ Beautiful painting!

This is beautiful! For some reason the limited palette and the churning water compliments each other. (Excellent water by the way!) I really like the way you've portrayed the hippocampus especially with his seaweed kind of mane. A great job!

Kurtis, this is really lovely. I've been so enjoying just watching as you develop your art and style. It really appeals to me, and I think you've done a marvellous job of finding your niche. Everything you paint has such lovely colors and appealing flow. Congratulations and thank you. Smile

This is superb, Kurtis! that sea-horse is far out, the colours in the animal add such a magical and mythical feel to the figure! the girl looks so right being there, again her colouring is excellent (love the intricate design on her gown) the background is ace, the mists kinda enhance that mystical feel! the splashing water is nicely done and holds your figures perfectly! beautiful work, I love it!

Art at its best.
