I love that her eyes and the owl's eyes match
I love the depth of field for the background, and even on the owl a bit
I'm in love with the textures you used and the composition
and for sure, the hair. There is not only blues and grays in this white hair, but also some peaches. and the individual strands down to her shoulders are sharp, which I love.
I adore the tattoo running down her neck as well as her head piece. She's for sure a survivor of harsh winters, maybe even in a magickal way. This does take photomanipulation to a whole other level. Not many manipulators I have seen go into THIS much detail when they do portraits similar to this one. The lighting is just gorgeous, adding in just enough warmth to show that she is warm but her surroundings definitely are not.

Beautiful work<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="357" title="Heart"/>

They often say Hope is a dangerous thing to hope for, they also say it is the best thing to hope for. Apparently now it's in the form of an owl that has these beautifully deep blue eyes and can turn into a beautiful woman.

I love the idea behind this and there is certainly a strong feeling of mysticism behind it because if I look at this long enough I can feel as though as I am being drawn into her with her hypnotic trance. So there is a strong feeling of hope but also a level of coldness to her appearance which is why this is so haunting in places. The rest of the piece though is beautifully drawn and coloured, the eyes on both the girl and owl really are for the most part the strongest part about this as it provides a certain level of cold and ice to the picture which makes you want to keep looking at it.

WOW,Its a breath taking work.
I was mesmerized with the beauty of this work.
What fascinated me was the technique used to diffuse the surroundings and bring the viewers focus to the characters face, the first thing i noticed was the eyes of this beautiful character.
i feel every picture has a story of its own and this is one that lean towards the mysterious side, it makes me want to know more about her and what she does. This peice was well composed and that is the best part ,lighting is well balanced and overall this is a great piece of work <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

I love surreal fealing that the brighter eyes give as the snow drifts down and the light color palette.
