Just found your gallery. Great work here. This picture in particular is fantastic! As someone else remarked, the use of hot and cold colors is wonderful, and the way you lead the eye towards the character is subtle and awesome. The diagonal light streak from the bottom left corner to her feet, and the highlighted leaves just above her head are great. Even the mirroring of the red in the tree and her dress-the upperpart near her neckline also glowing from the light of the sun- impressive. Yet she herself if pale, her body taking on the colder aspects of the image. Dark cropped hair atop a head bent downward. I wonder what she is thinking? Why is she barefoot and alone? Why is this called "Future"? The pink sky!

Ok. I totally slipped into a stream of conscious thing on this comment.

Glad to have more VA artist represented here on DA!

Wow this is just amazing, it's so beautiful!
The background is perfect, and it looks like it's either really early in the morning, or it's the sunset
Most likely the morning! ^^;

Anyway this is just so great, you really deserve that DD! ^^

Did you took a picture and then photoshoped it or did you draw the picture and then add the girl in it
twazzercannon Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010
I'd thought you were from my area, looks just like the bend in a local park near my home. Beautiful!

This looks so real! I actually have an area in our park that goes around the lake and at dawn, it would give off this wonderful color combination such as this. :nod: :heart:

GloriousPeanut Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2009
hey, i can almost feel the warmth of the last november sunshines ! The landscape is kind of alive... but it makes the girl look a bit... i dunno... not exactly awkward, but somehow... rigid. Anyway, very nice work.

My goodness! This is simply brilliant! The colors are so well-done that from a distance, I thought this was a photo!

The girl's shadow looks so accurate, and I adore how the sun's just peeking through. Very beautiful.

Also, congratulations on the DD. You deserve it!
