The Message by angrymikko The Message by angrymikko
When I was painting Blue Heaven I restricted myself to using one brush in painter. For a different look I now used many tools in painter IX and photoshop cs2. I enjoyed the long process of this image very very much. I also had fun hunting for reference material arond town with my camera. I like the symbolism in this one amd I can't wait to start another piece. I thought I'd have more to say here but right now my head is so empty. Feel free to ask anything and please go see the DETAILS in my scrap-book. I might update this description later.
I edited the hand a bit because it was too long and I had a typo in the description. Thank you all.

God, if only I had the time and patience to learn how to manipulate Painter the way you have figured it out! Maybe one day~ I hope! Your composition is stunning, but more than that, your ability to add in so many layers creates an astounding depth, giving one a sense of glimpsing into a real world and not just a flat image surrounding a character.

beautiful scenery and the fabric of the dress is so well detailed. LOVE IT
Freakywiki Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2007
You're such a wonderful artist! I like your shading and lighting techniques in your pictures. I'm not very good in those areas... ;3

Stunning composition.
ejayne Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the roughness of the rocks, brought out by the wider brush, and then the delicate nature of the face done with more detail. It's just...

SashaFitzgerald Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
She's absolutely stunning. I hope I can do something, someday, to compare this greatness right here. The colours make my eyes melt :3

I remember you from CGtalk! :highfive:
arisuonpaa Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2007
Yes, I've been there longer than here in DA. Actually I came to your DA page from your CGtalk portfolio. You should add more of your work there. This one is one of your best work and still it isn't found on your portfolio. Keep up the good work!
angrymikko Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I think this has been there I can't remember. Anyway it's old and I think my anatomy has improved a lot since I painted this. I can only have 5 paintings at the same time in my CGtalk portfolio because I don't have a subscription there.
disscordia Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007  Professional Artisan Crafter
Beautiful. I love how you use soft colours and sharp definition in the forest. The dress is gorgeously wrought. The pose... the hips seem a bit small and where she's supporting herself around the left hand seems slightly awkward ...but is fascinating nonetheless. Wonderful merging between subject and environment. Enchanting :)

What a STUNNING picture you have here!
