I saw the great stock picture of the girl lying on the rock and I wanted to do something with it. I was inspired to make the dramatic waves by lady-dementia who manipulates water extremely well. Go check out her gallery: here
No private parts are showing so I don't think it's necessary to mark it mature, what do you think?
The idea for this painting was that in the mirror the reflection of the girl has angel's wings - maybe the mirror is actually another world, or maybe it magically shows her true nature? By placing some arches in the mirror behind the wings I hoped they would blend in a little and not be spotted first thing.
It was fun to design the frame of the mirror and add story telling details like the old key on the floor.
A big thank you for the use of `Elandria 's loverly photo as reference for the figure in this picture. Much appreciated!
This gothic style angel was painted as a t-shirt design for a girl's shirt for Spiral. Due to this purpose it has design elements such as the swirl black pattern up the side and text at the bottom. I would like paint another version putting the angel into a scene - something like a misty ruined graveyard. Maybe even also add a little subtle colour. My schedule is very full so I shall have to see if there's time.
A huge thank you to model `Elandria for the use of her beautiful photograph as reference for this painting. [link]
Well, I really dont know what to think about this one I worked my ass off but still something doesnt feel right I just wanted to use different colors, since this categorys loaded with blues and greens I just wanted some warm colors but ended up with, hmm I cant even find a word for it Im rather disappointed with the result because I was really looking forward to do this one the concept flashed to me a while ago and I really wanted for it to turn out ok Now Im not even sure if it fits my gallery I just feel so weird I like the concept but the execution is hmm Looks like its a bad mix of stocks Please guys give me an honest opinion You get to decide for me whether to keep it or send it to scrap heaven

I love love love that song
Its been a while since I posted something. Nothing special about this work I guess,yes,Im still waiting for some real inspiration to hit me lol ^_^ Anyway Im happy with the way this turned out and I hope you like it too. Original model photo-stock can be found here - [link]
My last submission didnt show up,dont know why,so I truly hope this one will.
Dedicated to `Elandria for providing the whole community with such inspiring stock and for being so kind and supportive.
Work sort of inspired by Harry Potter series,even tho its not based on any character or scene. She is holding a magic wand in her left hand Simple work basically,cutting out and some painted details such as mist took most of the time,other than that it was pretty easy. Take a look at the original photo - [link] [2nd one]
The Moon Forest I choose to walk elegantly through Their Moon Forest Seeking life that has never been seen Step by step I search around the trees Through the fog which has captured me With its twinkling lights and wings so fair I would have miss them If my eyes hadn't closed just right They told me to walk lightly through life Never trampling those who are under foot My life has been in such a fast pace That I forget to look before I step So I smiled and promised I would tread Lightly through Their Moon Forest At such a slow pace That they will wonder if I had moved at all For I will be there from dusk to dawn Traveling through Their Moon Forest With my elegant, watchful step -Poem based on this piece, by Ramona Q. Prak
I feel like I'd really challenged myself in creating this piece; I've never done so much digital painting in one project before, and elements such as the trees and the butterfly's body were things I'd never done before. Though I'm really quite happy with the outcome. I hope you like it!
Edit 6/14/12- Retouched this artwork, since I first created it a few years back, I have improved a lot of my skills and techniques since then so I thought I would fix it up a little bit. I like it a little better than before. Added highlights to hair, and a fixed a few blending things, and changed color a little bit!

Acting as a symbolic collaboration of elements, Autumn Rose, depicts the breast cancer awareness theme. The piece takes place in the fall, specifically October, the national month of awareness. The roses in her hair represent the one out of nine women who will be positively diagnosed , the clock characterizes the women who will die from it every minute, and the blue butterfly is a depiction of hope.
Never thought it'd hurt so bad I just wanted to love you Never thought it'd hurt so bad Never thought it'd feel so right I was just thinking of you Never thought it'd feel so right
It's the edge of the dawn When she looks in your eyes She's wants what is hers Before the light And she runs on her own And you'll hurt before you know Not a sweet alibi When you get your bloody dose In the still of the night It is there you'll feel it most In this dark carnival Where the end is close
Tell me it won't hurt Tell me it won't hurt I just wanted to love you Funny how the story ends Remember the beginning Funny how the story ends She should never have looked so close I can see all your cracks Should never have looked so close It's the edge of the dawn When she looks in your eyes And she's wants What is hers Before the light And she runs on her own And you'll hurt before you know Not a sweet alibi When you get your bloody dose In the still of the night It is there you'll feel it most In this dark carnival Where the end is close
Tell me it won't hurt Tell me it won't hurt Tell me it won't hurt Tell me it won't Tell me it won't And she runs on her own And you'll hurt before you know Not a sweet alibi When you get your bloody dose In the still of the night It is there you'll feel it most In this dark carnival Where the end is close
Tell me it won't hurt Never thought it'd hurt so bad Tell me it won't hurt I just wanted to love you I just wanted to love you I just wanted to love you
