This is a piece that I painted in Photoshop CS5. I am a comic illustrator, and I rarely try to do all-out digital paintings like this. I really enjoyed making this piece and learned a lot, including some skin painting techniques that I was otherwise unfamiliar with. I particularly enjoyed painting her irises and eyes, and I am quite proud of how they came out. I hope to try to do this more in the future, and continue to grow my digital painting abilities.

This is perfect. It leaves me speechless, for there's nothing I could say about it except...

Does anyone else thinks she looks like Anna Paquin?

makes me think of oil painting, love the texture of the skin and hair, feels more natural, but lighting/shadowing is not yet perfect, feels just a hair too shiny or glossy perhaps. or radiant.

the lips i feel have too much lip gloss or something.

oh and i am a die hard fan of white/silver hair <3 make more please

I love this piece, you made her look beautiful.

My only pointer would be to have added a very very faint texture or maybe SOME blemish or beauty spot or freckles or something, to her face.

Just to not have it look so fake and smoothed out.
Her lips and eyes and hair, so very detailed and realistic. Yet the skin itself not as much.

WOW !!!!! . This painting made in Photoshop ? I love the perfection of every single detail of this girl. I mean the realism of the feeling this girl is watching us with her shinning eyes , the wonderful white hair , the use of light to make lips so alive , the well drawn nose , and the band on her forehead wonderful. She looks like a wonderful princess of a glorious wonderful winter land kingdom .

Can I ask a question Skarael? Did you plan to create a digital novel for newgrounds featuring the winter girl ? I wont hesitate to check out future works. Excellent Job.

Nice! Those details in the hair are incredible. I also liked the effect of the light in the eyes and in the lips.
