Gothic Rose by jjean21 Gothic Rose by jjean21
So named for the look and the character 'Winter Rose'.
I spent all day on a dragon and ended up with this..go figure.

Brushes are Annika Von Holdt

As always, thanks for looking.

What kind of software did you use to create this artwork? Poser by any chance? :) Anyhow, it's wonderful. I love the 'supermodel' or 'Paris fashion' look :giggle:

Yep, Poser all the way with a littl heelp from Photoshop for postwork actions. I just love the look of this model and I'm so glad you do too. Thanks :hug:

Wow...beautiful. I dont know anything about modelling or how you guys get the results you do, but that is definitely on the level that I would class as high-end professional.

Its all the little features that make it for me, like I had to look to see that her ring isnt solid, and when you look closer you see that...its little details that keep your eyes looking over it again and again to see something different. The bracelet is awesome too.

What a nice comment, thank you so much. I love to try and work little details into what I do, sometimes it's noticed and sometimes it's not.

The fingernails look awesome, and remind me of my friend who used to put a lot of beautiful designs on her nails. I love the striped hat, reminds me of the socks another friend used to wear. :3 I give kudos to you, because even though she has red lips and dark eyes, she doesn't look like a mime. X) I love how your art is so varred now. your gallery is spicy with the beauty work you have, full of such diversity.

I love to see nails that have been painted and bejewled...I think they should match your personality the same way your hair, makeup and clothes do. The face texture for this one is so unique, not vamp or mime and not true goth but a great mix of all of them. I sometimes wish I could find one theme and perfect it but I don't seem to work that way so I'm happy that you like the diversity.

A single theme for this work? It just stands out as individuality in the sense that it doesn't seem to fit into any known theme. :) I tend not to paint my nails, I treat my head like the accessory carrier, with fedora's, big headsets, and bandana's.

Actually I was thinking more in terms of perfecting one thing..portraits, fantasy, etc., but my mind doesn't work that way in any aspect of my life..and I love fedora's.

KiaAsakura Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2006
How about asking for comissions then? :} Ask people to create a character for you, then have you re-create it. That way you can have the discipline of working on that fantasy and portrait aspect, yet still having the freedom of interpretation?

And yeah, fedoras are pretty much super awesome. ;P

Wow, this is a great one....looks very realistic. Those fingernails are very detailed and I can imagine someone having ones just like that. I like especially how part of her face has more realistic color than the rest of her skintone. Beautiful work Jan :clap:

Interesting variations in skin shading. At a glance she seems just pale and gothy. As my eye travels right my brain says "wait a minute." Great face. Love the eyes. Great choice of clothes and props and I think the Zeuss hat gives a lighter, not so serious a tone. (Who in the real world has the time to paint her nails like that?)

Gotcha really looking at this one huh? Good, it keeps your mind active :rofl: The hat was the perfect topper and I just had to add it; you'd be amazed at how many women take time to do their nails..it's a girl thing.

Is that not the coolest hat, the first thing I thought of for some reason was 'Alice in Wonderland' but yep, it's the 'Cat in the Hat' thing alright. This one was really fun to try and pull together glad you like it. BIG :hug:
