i feel close enough to breath in your essence, but you are nowhere to be seen.

[link] : CLOSE UP MONTAGE

fourth piece in its series, studying the realistic rendering of characters.
1: (incomplete)
2:water [link]
3:milk [link]
4:air

ive made 10 PSD files while i was developing this piece, capturing each significant milestones. may not be for everyone, but i will attempt at making an advanced-tutorial using this meterial in near future. (im in portland oregon right now, but i will be visiting Bayarea california for a week, next week. that will give me some free time while hangin out with my old folks. ill see ya soon MOM!!!! ^^;)



id like to dedicate these series to my very dear friend, Stacy. Aka JUJIKA, in spirit of celerbrating her health recovery.
i think the technical achievement in these recent semi-realistic approach was only possible by stacy being there to help me focus on our career together, and her recent absense help me to put together things we've learned together into a series of solid techniques.

the phrase " the angel's here to stay" fits so well for this situation. little sister stacy has been in bed for past couple of weeks, and some of us worried that she might be walking on such thin ice, but she was indeed strong, and choose to stay here with us. Your friend stacy is FINE. she is in recovery phase now, and she will be back in no time. she will continue to mesmerise you with her beautiful art. Our endeavor to share imaginations and visual expressions with you will have no expiration date.

pray for her quick recovery, will ya?

Such a beautiful concept. The more I look at this painting the more I fall in love with her softness and sensuality. Great work!

I hope you don't mind but I featured this piece in my journal. [link]

The delicate colouring and the way that you handled her reflection really gives this a pure, watery look that I absolutely adore! ♥ I also really love that look her reflection is giving her, and how that and the way that the fabric of her top clings to her moist chest add an air of tainted purity and intentions to this - really cool!!

Amazing work. The kind of "mist" effect that you gave the left one is great. I do kind of think that there should be a mature warning (at least) due to the fact that her nipples are clearly visible... but whatever.

The balance is so harmonious. Lovely choice of colors for the chosen subject. It's alluring presence is quite dominant dispite the soft pale tones. ;p

Soft and elegant, love the face, it seems curious some how. Its like discovering oneself! Lovely colors, its just like the title describes, light as air. I adore the breasts and the subtle show of nipple, its very innocent looking. She has a cute face as well, the lips and eyes are cute.
