This is simply stunning. The blue tones throughout are beautiful and really pull all the small elements together.

I like the airiness you gave to her skirt. I think, however, that this would work just as well without the wings, and they look a little stiff and out of place.

The plants and ferns at the bottom of the image are a wonderful addition, as many people forget to spend much time on the scenery. I also love the small fireflies and single butterfly.

The water, I believe it is, coming from her hair messed me up at first. The water in front of her skirt blends into the skirt, making it look like there's a line of light coming from her skirt into the water, which is what I thought at first.

Your lighting is also fantastic, though I feel like the face needs to be a tad bit brighter. But maybe I'm just wrong. Otherwise, the light seems to fall in all the right places, making this a realistic though fantastical piece.

This is gorgeous! I love the feel of this piece, it just oozes peacefulness. The plants are perfectly soft and work well with the blue glow from the water and faerie's dress/wings.

The blue is what drew me towards this piece because it really catches the eye just at a passing glance. Upon closer examination, I was able to see the little details like the moth and fireflies. You used a good amount of detail in this and it shows!

The dress is also expertly done. Just by looking at it seems to just...feel good. You were able to paint a feeling into a simple article of clothing. You did a wonderful job on and I'm sorry you weren't able to enter it in the contest.

This is a lovely piece of work! <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/a/a…" width="15" height="15" alt=":aww:" title="Aww" />

The blue atmosphere is a really great touch and i dont think it would look any better in any other color! <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /> Good color choice <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /> The glow of her dress (the details on it too), the wings and the water are eye catching. The details are pretty sharp.
The lighting seems to be on point, especially on the body. It is subtle yet strong enough to see from a distance.

This is just an overall beautiful piece of work, something that i could see as a poster on people's walls! <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)" /> Magical and very, very inspirational. <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/h/h…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart" />

Love the light source coming from the pool and just your use of light in general. I've noticed you have a real talent for this in all of your artwork.
