A lot lighter than my usual work, I'm not even really sure if I like it, but I think I do, just in a different way =)

I was listening to FoW all last night while I was just messing around in photoshop and I came up with this quick image (8 hours). So the lyrics to Valley Winter Song kept going through my mind "hey sweet annie..." and it sorta just stuck.

So for those of you who like dreamy, soft, flowery, sweetness and light images, this is for you!

Oh gosh, this is beautiful. She's so delicate and pretty. The way you've painted her makes me think of a winter/snow fairy.

Gorgeous work. ^^

I love the ethereal feel to this. It is quite different than your usual style, but it's no less striking! Great job!
sexyposh Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2007
wow very lovely!!!!!!!!! I LIKE IT....
paradoxdestruction Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2007
its a calming pic but very pretty...
RetroZombie Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2007
It is a stylistic departure for you, but I love it! It's very soft and light - very pleasing to the eye. I could gaze at it for hours!

The only thing that's missing, in my opinion, are some shadows - by the figure's hand, and around the cloth that's lying on the leaf/ground (and maybe a smidge more under the butterfly). I always seem to be zeroing in on those shadows, don't I? ^^;

I like how there's just enough contrast between the figure and the background so that she stands out. And the wings are fantastic, as usual! :)
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks John =) and yeah you always mention my bad shadows! LOL

cannotescape Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007
it's almost too peaceful...

the colours are so soft they're eerie, nice

it's a wonderfully clever piece, one of those pictures everyone will see slightly differently

sidh09 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
That's gorgeous! Very different from what you usually do indeed, but just as good!

I don't know how come I missed it... I saw it in your journal with your newest prints only. ANyway, I'm glad I finally get to see it :)
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks very much!
Amelily Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2007
I think it's beautiful, especially the detail.
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you for the comments!
sianbannana Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2007
wow xD
drop-asd Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2007
I adore the anathomy and how you painted every little muscle and bone. Especially the feet and the knees seem absolutely perfect to me. :deviation: The background is very gentle. The little butterfly is a nice detail. Honestly, when I saw the thumbnail I thought it was a photomanip. Very realistic :thumbsup:
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
It is mixed media, it is neither a photomanip or a painting, its a combination of the 2 =)

Thanks for all the comments.
drop-asd Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2007
No problem, it was completely my pleasure :)
yujakolost Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007
she doesn't seem light to me,

she is very beautiful and the whole picture is incredible

she seems dark to me
theSpinacHgirl Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007
nice!! this is really beautiful
sliverbane Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love the way you colored the skin. I've been trying to wrap my head around drawing pale and or white skin with out making it look too opaque. This is akin to Brom in how you did the skin. Very nice.
blacklemons Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007  Student Traditional Artist
i really think this is greaet. dont think of it as much as the light soft flowery goodness thing idt that's it at all really i think that it has that harsh winter look as well almost like she's been decieved but it really is beautiful just so u know ^-^
