Stunning work you did there
Absolutely LOVE the dramatic lighting, the luminescent water, and the overall mystery/intrigue!!!! +Fave!!!
This is absolutely amazing.
Man! Words just aren't enough to describe how awesome this is! The colors really stand out, and the grains make it even better.
You may be one of my favorite artists
This is just amazing
Wow, the colours and the mood of this is stunning!
Woah. The bird and water are absolutely wonderful!
I love the colors.
The colors and contrast are wonderful! I would've had her tassels on her neck moving a bit too since she seems to be in motion though. Other than that, absolutely stunning!
The colouring in this is absolutely gorgeous. Amazing work with the water reflections.
Just beautiful, especially the falcon and colors !! Nice atmosphere too
Love the falcon....or eagle....whatever it is.
i love how whimsical and mysterious and wonderous this is.
nice balance in the composition
The water effect is stunning, I have no idea how to even attempt something like that, any chance you could impart some wisdom?
I overlaid a photo texture of water (from cgtextures), used transform tools to distort it how I wanted it, made color adjustments, and painted over most of it until it meshed with the rest of the image. It's a technique often used in professional concept art. A useful shortcut, but still takes some finesse to get it to look natural.
It's a technique I've heard people use quite a lot, sounds like a great way to save time and practice whatever it is you're painting over. Is the photo still visible in the final image then or do you use it as a guide and paint on a new layer? I'd love to try this out
The phototexture is still in there somewhere, but the vast majority of it has been painted over. For me, it's not about practice, it's about saving time—I could use the photo as reference only and paint it all from scratch, but there's really no point when I can get the same result a faster way.
QuQ what a beauty!
This is simply amazing, you did such a wonderful job
This is just fantastic
This is so beautiful!
Lol, that game was... odd xD But this is beautiful, your art style is seriously amazing ^^
Lovely shapes as usual, but I gotta dig those feathers the most. *_*
wow that bird is beautifull, so is she, so is her dress and everything else about this picture
