The Aviator by amberfishy The Aviator by amberfishy
The Aviator.

Acrylic on canvas.

Had this one on my easel for months... finally finished it.

The ball is slowly rolling along and I'll gradually get some more stuff done, with a bit of momentum... hopefully.

Reference for portrait from, [link] I had to paint her face as soon as I saw it, the resemblance is slightly lost in translation but I like what this painting turned into.

This is wonderful! :D
It's fascinating how you use similar redish colours around the piece (at least from what I can see) and still manage to make the subject's face stand out so brightly! Very smart composition, well pulled off :)

thanks :) I was working on a neon pink base which was pretty challenging!

Ooooo! I like this. Her expression is really good! And the triangle detail in the corner balances the hardness and softness of the piece.

May i use this picture for the cover of my NaNoWriMo novel? It is exactly how my character is pictured. The novel will not be published, but i will give you credit for the picture. Would i be allowed too?
