Fearful Beauty by balaa Fearful Beauty by balaa
Dangerous Intimacy, fearful beauty.

This is actually an unfinished piece from...oooh looks like November of 2007. I have had various personal and health issues that have been keeping me fairly tied up and so there are a good few pieces sitting unfinished on my pc. This was one I suddenly felt the need to finish and I am happy I did so as I think it lit a well needed fire in me...or at least a flame anyway.

Thank you to all those that continue to follow this account and to give your valuable time to stop by and look at my work. You remind me why I should continue to share and create this work..

(The character depicted is my liger self/totem etc, though her features have shifted to become more Tigonish in nature.)

Details:
Size: 5700x3500 pixels at 300 dpi
Tools: Wacom Bamboo and PS CS3

This is freakin' incredible - the eyes are amazing :heart: Very nice.

The snow covered sticks in the foreground add so much depth to this as well as the contrast between the ice eyes and the orange fur.
