Mirror Mirror by thundercake Mirror Mirror by thundercake
LOL SYMBOLISM

Alyssa Pierre, an NPC in my game Thorns.
Done as a gift for my friend Josh, whose character has a teeny bit of a crush on her... ;)

Painter...still not really used to it, can't find a brush I like and so this is messy as all hell

Great great one.
I really appreciate that the smile also seems to be showing because the mirror is break. You know like a misplaced fragment that changes the place of the mouth and gives the impression that she smiles.
Oh my... my english sucks :XD:
Anyway, it's a great one !!

Wow love the mirror... that sort of thing is so difficult, I find.
And I also love her expressions.
What was the intended symbolism, may I ask?

Something about her alter personality taking over, I think

This is a fantastic piece. I really enjoy the composition and the color scheme. The content is also wonderful. The only thing I see is that it doesn't appear to be a completely resolved piece. There are some areas of the piece (her hand, for example) that is a little undefined and could use more detail. :)

Fantastic piece, regardless. :+fav:

I'm unfamiliar with the character but like your design (and of the whole piece) as well am admittedly a sucker for bright colours.

Gah! The photoshop rut is such a pain - I get the feeling that I'm missing out by giving painter the cold shoulder but I just cant bring myself to look at it in all its intensity and unfamiliarity..
That being said - this picture is exquisite. :heart:
