This started as me being in a bad mood on Wednesday. And how better to blow some steam off than to set something on fire?! Well, in this case it's a someone, and she seems immune to the flames. Might be her crown generating coolness or her posessing some kind of magic, but whatever it is, she's wearing the flames without getting burned. It's what I think I should do at work more often... or maybe I'm just overinterpreting and this is just some fun lighting practice. You decide ;)

What do you make of this?

I'm submitting this with critiques turned on because it took me waaaaay longer than I thought to get her arms and face approximately right. I think there's still things that are off, but I've stared at it for three evenings and I'm kinda happy now (if not completely) so I decided I'd ask you guys instead of going nuts over every individual stroke ^^; So fire away :D

Details:


Stock from ~La-Esmeralda-Stock (girl) as well as ~Ayelie-stock & ~Mind-Matter (fire) and my own background shot on holidays in Firenze 2009... I have so much stock unuploaded from that vacation it actuall makes me queesy --> my stock can be found on *kuschelirmel-stock but NOT HERE!

My art is not your stock! so hands off!

The realism of your shadings make it hard not to be inspired, but your art is awesome on a whole :)

This makes me think that even an ice queen can still have a flame in her heart that can take over her entire body. This is amazing. If this ever becomes a print, please let me know, because I would buy this in the biggest size available.
