Artwork Description

I'm not sure what I should say about this... it was a pretty personal picture, but by the 10th hour that I've worked on this whatever profound meaning I had in mind all went out the window (however, I do hate crying in public).

Did this in PS7 and Painter 8. Took close to 30 hours. The one in my avatar is a WIP version

As far as technique goes, I was going for more of the style that other Asian artists employ with their fantasy/character art; more focus on colour, lots of anal retentive details in the costume, atmospheric background etc. Hope you like.

This is absolutely gorgeous!! You have actually captured the likeness of one of my friends. This is the sort of art I hang on my wall.

As a rule, I am not a great fan of most digital art, but "Tears Won't Fall" has left me absolutely speechless. It is a truly beautiful piece of work.

we all take references and influences in life...it motivates us.I'm sure happy you were motivated to do this piece! This is the most beautiful, artistic work I've seen in here...I'm not a authority but I know what beauty is and this is astounding! I will remember your name Linda Tso!

He's not the only one Wink And I only did one painting that looks like Vovo's but there are many artists who work in that style in Taiwan, some of them a lot more famous than Vovo. Wink

Yeah... it's really great... really lovely... but... well... I've seen it so many times already! Laughing out loud Hmm... looking closer though, do I detect a little Chain&Jane influence in there?! I think you are starting to settle into your own style now, and a very good one - before you seemed to reference a lot of other artists, like Enayla or Vovo, which personally I found a bit off-putting. But always very high quality work from you anyway. Well done! Smile

Soooooo pretty! This is just gorgeous. I love the colors you've used. They give it a soft etherial look.

Really lovely piece. You've done a good job with the fabric - the sheerness and the flow, costume design is terrific, and the bowl or dish she's holding is downright beautiful.

I loved this work the moment I saw it... Wonderful!

Art at its best.
