That's beautiful! I love the "progression" of the birds, it gives her a sense of movement and journeying and longing that's quite powerful :) I think the detail of the birds and her face and hair is just fantastic - there's a wonderful depth and soul to this... beautiful work! :)

Elana, Wow...

Love her delicate features, with her wild, wind swept hair.  Your use of color is beautiful, with the browns and reds in Elwing's face, contrasted with the white and blue/black in the seagulls.  You've created a strong feeling of depth here, especially with the foreshortening in the wings of the gulls.  The wings almost feel like they are reaching out of the page at you.  I have a strong feeling of Elwing leaning forward into the wind, as if she is about to break the bonds of gravity herself and be carried away on the winds along with the gulls.

Love the expression in her eyes, and on her lips.  Far away, anticipating, seeing beyond the immediate into eternity.

I really like the way the simplicity of this image works, with minimal detail below her face, and almost no background.  You've created a very strong central line which flows right through from the gull, to her eye, and then off into the distance following the other gulls.  You are a master of composition here. ;-)

(Nice work on the reference photo!  My complements to hyuuchiha-girl !)

Absolutely amazing.  You have MANY wonderful paintings up here, but personally, I'll put this right up there as one of my favorites (along side of your Morning of Uinen painting ;-) ).

Blessings!

Charles, thank you so very much! It seems to me that an initial idea of mine and the most benevolent cooperation of Lauren have made a charm. =) I felt that Lauren's photo is just perfect source and an inspiration for my graphics. I have more marine themes in mind, and I hope I'll draw those soon. <3

Well, it's certainly high on my "charms" list. ;-)  Looking forward to your marine themes.

(Tolkien certainly did love the magic of the sea!)

Она какая то латиноамериканка, как кажется) почему такой выбор типажа, любопытно?
волосы просто нереально прекрасные, так здорово..
красиво, есть движение...
да и чайки симпатичные)

:iconekukanova:
EKukanova Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014
Спасибо!) Просто фотография вдохновила, там и волосы красивые в движении, и лицом похожа на мою любимую Мари Жиллен (на остальных фото не похожа, но попадает в моё представление о Яванне, эдакого слегка индейского типа)
вообще чувствую, начинается у меня период чаек, в эскизах сейчас штук пять картинок с чайками), правда другой вопрос- сколько из них напишется(
Reply
:iconkimberly80:
kimberly80 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014
чайки это хорошо, чайки это красиво)))
а где же Эарендил?вокруг него должна быть масса чаек...
я тоже за индейцев...
но волосы просто красота....волос всем побольше...
от души желаю, чтоб написалось, все, что задумано)

да... есть в волосах какая-то безотказная магия, что в жизни, что на картинке:  чем их, волос, больше- тем волшебней)
