Finally I got around to doing this piece, ever since I saw Auralis stock's beautiful archer pose I just had to do something with it. She has such beautiful stock, which was funny because I was just thinking today surely she has gotten a DD, and if not its overdue but then she got one! lol so Auralis, this is my dedication to YOU for the beautiful stock and the congratulations on your well deserved DD. Please keep up the great work!!! :love:

I repainted the stock photo of auralis, you can view her original photo here [link]

The background was rendered and partially repainted

Some brushes from `spiritsighs and =flordelys lots of :love: to both of you!

Thanks for looking everyone :hug: I appreciate all your support more than you will ever know =)

Very, very beautiful.
monomania Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
It's nice, but a) the arrow grip only uses three fingers, no pinkie and no thumb, and b) the arrow is on the wrong side of the bow.

Cierra8994 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
may i use this lady in a manipulation? i could not find anyone like her, please?
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
No, this is not stock. Sorry.
Cierra8994 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
may i please have the link to the girl
cosmosue Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
The link to the photo of the girl is in the description, unfortunately she has removed her stock, but that doesn't mean I still have it, and if I did it is beyond me to provide it to you. So you may try contacting her directly, but I cannot give you the photo (even if I had it, its not mine to give) the stock provider may not want it to be used any longer.

This is beautiful and well-composed :) Thanks so much for sharing! I'd like to point out two details about how the bow and arrow should be held, as I've been an archer since I was a young boy: it's customary to tuck the pinky away from the bowstring, as using the first three fingers is the ideal way to draw the string back; the arrow should be on the other side of the bow, always on the same side as the bow arm. The arrow will not fly true if fired the way the figure in this picture has it. Just some things to consider...or not ;)

AkAlina? Is this your DA account?
cosmosue Featured By Owner May 24, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
AkAlina? No my account name is cosmosue... its on all of my submitted work under the work it says cosmosue.

Im confused....

Are you a Teen Titans fan?

Cause someone on a site that I'm on has this picture on their Art thread, claiming it as their own.

I'm trying to get down the the bottom of this
cosmosue Featured By Owner May 24, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
No Im not, and no that isn't me, and no they didn't create this because I did, so that is the bottom of it.

The person posting on this Teen Titans Site is lying to your community and claiming copyright on something that is already protected by my own copyright.

Everything in my gallery belongs to me, I have been here for over 6 years, the other person is in the wrong, sorry.

The image should be removed, and the person warned or banned for copyright.
skeptist Featured By Owner May 29, 2010
The problem will be dealt with by site admins as soon as the person is notified of their actions. And no problem, I just want to get this cleared up, she's one of my friends on the site and it sucks to see this kinda crap happen.

Btw, I just want to say that you're and amazing artist and I love your work :D!

I love the warm, natural atmosphere of this piece. I really like how your art always manages to look completely believable despite clearly being painted. :clap:

great mood, nicely done :)
muy-thai Featured By Owner May 31, 2008
Beautiful pic. She kinda reminds me of the Greek goddess Artimis.
The arrow seems a little short for the bow though. (could just be me, sorry sidetracked)

Anyway, good pose, wonderful use of color, and one cant help but wonder; did you use a model?
cosmosue Featured By Owner May 31, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, its in the description =)

kadarian Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2007
Whoa! That looks almost identical to a character from a novel I'm writing... face, pose, attire, etc.! That has to be the creepiest and definitely the coolest thing I've ever seen. :dance: I think I'm going to be on writer's high for the next year. Thank you for totally making my day!

Also - even if it didn't look just like my Rain, I'd still be in love with it anyway. It's an absolutely stunning image. The amount of detail in the elf's face and hair is just amazing. :D :+fav:
simmysimfreak Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2007
