WIP ? How can this be a WIP? It may be that the background is a bit simple but for card game I understand the focus to be the characters. It may also be that the work on the hairs is a tad bit too much (big chunk at boob height, overall length) and maybe some jewel is missing on ther front head to complete the oriantal / 7 veils lady reference but that work on the skin of the lady is just gorgeous, the tones of the skin to reflect the light coming from the flames, the efforts taken to describe the various muscle of the body . If the skin on the right is maybe not enough wrinkled as compared to what the curve should cause, the work in the shoulder area, always tricky, is so realistic. The work on the boobs, then the arms and finally the fingers is also smoothly integrated in the overall pose so as to provide a passionate attitude. It's like I am facing a dancer, intent and concentrated on her art (look at this little white pixel in her eye ) and the brooch that holds her veils ... really that work on the fingers, face expression and body attitude is melting my heart... hopefully for my couple, such characters are not to be met in real
I also found it on several sites under the name HD_Wallpaper_1903.jpg
This is an astounding piece of art. I literally fell in love with the piece, it spoke to me of something from another's story. I was looking for something of an illustration for a character. I would be interested in seeing any other pieces you may have worked up with this model. I have to assume there was a model, based upon the face, it is so detailed and real seeming. I could only believe it was the face of someone you greatly admired and was very familiar with.
kingcroe9.deviantart.com/art/P… Your awe inspiring artwork has been stolen here and I am glad to say he has been reported. But sadly, he has also stolen from sakimichan and tjoto. So hopefully we stop him c: Keep drawing, it is SO gorgeous.
The dampness of the cave cooled the air where I stood. and every time she got close enough the flames warmed it. Her beauty caught my attention, her grace arrested it, her seemingly dangerous talent threw away the key. Half way through her performance all my pint up rage and frustration melted away as the reason for their existence was forgotten...replaced by the dance of a gorgeous, young fire mage that would remain--forever twirling--within my memory.
