I simply love this artwork. i also have long hair so i can relate to the flowing lines and playing with my hair. The colours blend beautifully and flow with the strands of the hair. Great use of the mixed medium.The small details of outline in the body really help to tell you what is actually going on which i really appreciate. The detail in the eye then just adds that overall POP that makes the artwork come alive and adds the element of realism to the fantasy. Very dynamic , canvas used well and the fact that you didn't overwork it(which is one of your traits i know) keeps the idea of fantasy. The theme is carried out strongly . The artwork is simplistic in a sense that it emphasizes the potency of the theme. You very successfully say so much with what looks like very little, but i do know how much work and planning could easily go into a watercolour because you cant remove anything and it seems to do what it wants to do. I can really appreciate this artwork because it impacts so powerfully , even more so because of my personal association .
What do you think?

Okay, let's try this critique thingie :D
I'll do this because I think the art is stunning and pretty to the max!
Things I love about this painting:
-The little blob of purple on her right arm, as I think it ads some extra dimension to the pic ^^
-Her eyes, both looking amazing. The one hid behind her hair is barely visible, but yet you get the feeling that there's an entire realistic eye underneath it.
-The combination of colors is really cool. I think he way the blue and purple blend together so nicely with red and yellow is just stunning.
The way that you created the lines in her hair is really skillfull -I think-.
I can think of a whole story behind this awesome hair, so impact is very good~
Not sure if it's entirely original, but I've never seen something really similar
Great work, love it<3 I would love to have her hair :XD:

Only recently have I began to use watercolor, and OH DEAR LORD, I cannot emphasize how much this impresses me. The way you managed to make her hair look so realistic and yet so ethereal and colorful with watercolor which most of the time seems to have its own will is really impressive. I love her eyes, the colors used and the simple yet dynamic pose of the arms. This should be in a museum!!!

I'm currently working on my final media project for uni. I'm creating a website that will promote emerging artists/art graduates that want to share their artwork. If you are an artist or know someone who is, please invite them to like the Facebook page where you can access all the information about how to get your artwork posted on my future website. It's free and might help you succeed in the world of art!

Dear Deviant,


I have Favourited your deviation because I sincerely think it is worthy of such a title. If you are wondering why this message is so formal-sounding and impersonal in nature, it's because as a past non-DA user, I have been keeping all my favourite Deviations bookmarked in my browser for a couple of years, and I am finally uploading all those deviations unto my current DA profile! So while it is impractical for me to lay down a thoughtful comment for all these collected Deviations at this time, I want you to know that when I first came across your piece, it did (and still does) deserve a note of appreciation. I apologize for not being able to share individual comments at this time: your Deviation deserves it in my opinion!


Thanks for reading,

I love this piece, because (after seeing the WIP on Youtube) it inspired me to try watercolors.  Now, I can use paint more then I ever thought I could!  Thank you so much for inspiring me!

Your colours are wonderful - I'm so jealous of artists who can use water colours. The composition is good and your lines are so delicate. I love the striking effect of the yellow and red with the purple and blue - they bring out the best in the colours.Clap

this piece has been used without you being credited to promote a local art school.

I recognized your work and thought you should know, I sent the school an e-mail telling them to credit you but i doubt they will. this school steals work, students, ideas, and art from other schools in the area. there lies are disgusting.

im a fan of your work and will try my best to get them to credit you! or take it down.
