Lady in the water


This piece was my breakthough, I finally got out of my safe box and just went for it. It took me forever to finish creating this. One of my oldest pieces :)

The theme was 'seven deadly sins', a challenge on the ImagineFX website, there is a bit of symbolism in this artwork.

A knockout!!! Her hair color is lovely.

I don't think there's anything wrong here. The only thing I can think of, if at all, is the lips. The somewhat small size of her lips seems to add a slightly childlike feature to her face but I can't say that without feeling like I'm nitpicking. So feel free to ignore the lip size comment.

Never saw blue hair that actually looked entirely natural. I like the blue hair and golden eye combination; its unique and you made it look natural. It's as if somewhere out there, there's actually someone who might have this hair and eye combination. She looks remarkably... Detailed? Real? Not sure which word I'm looking for, but it's a little striking, and her expression adds to it. I feel like she just asked me question and she's sitting there waiting for the answer. She's thinking "Well?" and I almost feel guilty or stupid for forgetting what the question was.

I'm not sure I catch how all of the seven sins work into this piece of art, but seeing as how one of them is indeed lust, I'm glad you didn't dive off into the graphic or inappropriate end. There is power in subtlety and I believe you caught onto that here.

Great job!

This amazing and impossibly good-looking!

Simply beautiful!

I particularly love the expression on her face and the sheen of the water on her fingers and lips.

Now, looking at the other reviews, one could nitpick about proportions, scaling and foreshortening all they want. But there are so many finer details on this painting that really catch my eye, the picture overall just works perfectly, and I refuse to make any such comment. Without sounding cheesy, it feels like you've embued this work with its own spirit and given it a life of its own.

In particular, I admire the fact that in going with the theme of the seven deadly sins, you could have gone with something a bit more sultry or just flat-out inappropriate. But you've created something more here.

This one is definitely going into my Favorites. 5/5, 10/10!


its so realistic. she practically jumps off the screen at you
