-Phenomena- Girl of the ice

Edit (25.12):
I improved the ice to make it look more realistic!


---

I don't know what to say, im not really in a writing mode right now, but i'll just say that i LOVE this picture, and how it evolved throughout the prosess. Ive grown fond of her, and im not sure how i feel about letting her go out into the big world.. its kinda scary, you know, like when ive finally released her theres no going back. This puts a pressure on you too, you know, time to show me i didnt do it in vain. I hope i didnt, I hope you like her, like i like her, but theres ofcourse a difference, me being her "mother" with mothergoggles, i cant see her flaws and i love her just the way she is, but you can see everything i neglected, so just tell me if theres something i should do differently.

She is from the Norwegian bookseries called Phenomena. She is the socalled daughter of the ice, and can make ice from her hands, which ive tried to demontrate here, though i think i failed a little, still better than before.

This is a repainting of this:
I HATE that image, and figured it was time to show what im good for, and will therefore also post a before-after image in just a second!

I hope you'll be as satified as i am!
Tell me what you think!

Så kult å høre!^^
Phenomena var serien som fikk med interessert i fantasy for første gang, så jeg er veldig knyttet til serien selv! Tusen takk!^^

Samme med meg! Jeg begynte for lenge siden å høre på Phenomena på lydbok, og det var vel da jeg visste at jeg ville bli Fantasy-forfatter
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
Jeg leste bøkene og fikk lydbøkene etter det!^^ Ja, phenomena inspirerte meg til å begynne å skrive selv! :)

This is gorgeous. By the way; mom considered this to get as artwork in our hallway after I showed her but we don't think we could order it big enough. And of course there is the shipping and all. Anyways; stunning work. The flow of the hair is gorgeous, you worked in a stunning way with the different shades of blue, I reaaally like how you made her lips look, very realistic. And her eyes seem to look right into the core of you. As usual gorgeous work. (ps: I like phenomena as a word, dunno why, like the sound of it. Do they have a translation in english of the book series by any chance?)

Hi. I saw that you wanted to read Phenomena in english, sadly it hasn't been translated into english yet, but there is an official sample translation here: [link] . There also is an email adress there where publishers can send a mail and request to translate and publish it ^^. I hope it gets released into english soon ^^

OOH seriously??! I could make it cheap for a day, if you really want to?:D OMG i would be SOOO honoured!! I have no idea how i made her hair, i cant do it again, but its just perfect, and im really glad you think so!^^ thank you honey!:D Actually i think the eyes are waay too close, i wanna crop it straight down the middle! It looks alittle cooler!:) Im glad you liked the eyes and the mouth!^^
Haha yeah its a cool word!:) And i have NO idea if you can get it in english, but if it is you should!^^ It was the book that made me love elves and fantasy!:) I read it when i was 12 or something!:)

this is really good, exept Ilke never gets this old :( I love that someone makes a rly good phenomena piece <3
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
of course she does!^^ the characters dont die after the books! ;)
thank you!:) <3
Rans-green-moon's avatar
oh yeah xD God and I even finished the last one today xD my bad
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
Oh really!:D Which is the last at this point? the last book i read from the series was Enigma, i dont even remember if i finished it... think i did.. =P
Rans-green-moon's avatar
the last one is called "Frostens Datter", its the end of Phenomena :( but its really good! Poor Ruben wrote the last chapter right after hearing about Utøya, so its pretty sad yet so good in the end
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
OMG i HAVE to get that!!! Is it the one after Enigma, or are there more? I think actually the books kinda bummed after the third, but its a guilty pleasure, seeing as they are really nostalgic books i read when i was young!^^ I have to know how it ends!:D Arent they like 16-17 in the last books?:)
Rans-green-moon's avatar
17 ^^ and after Enigma comes Trollmannen, then it ends with Frostens Datter. I think Ruben did a wonderful job on keeping up the story and characters :3 I have many favorite characters from him x3
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
actually i think i read trollmannen! :) It was sad, if i dont remember wrong!:/ I dunno, i think he used hell of a long time to finish them, but yeah i like the first and third book though! :)

Ser fantastisk ut! Håret bare flommer fra hodet hennes som en mektig elv, veldig godt arbeid der;) For å ikke snakke om skyggeleggingen:D

Jeg syns hun ser noe eldre ut enn hva jeg forestiller meg Ilke, men så skal vel sant sies at jeg aldri har lest lenger en til bok 4 om jeg ikke husker feil^^
IngvildSchageArt's avatar
nei tusen takk!:D det var da veldig koselig å høre!^^ Jeg ville at håret skulle vise kreftene hennes som en bølge over henne selv, hvis du skjønner hva jeg mener!;)

Ja i mitt hode ser de ut som mer ungdommer enn barn, for det er mye morsommere å tegne voksene!;) Jeg har bare lest 5 bøker selv, og da er de jo 15 tror jeg, så er jo ikke så voksene men det er bare mitt hodet!:)
