Winter Woman by Lizzy-John Winter Woman by Lizzy-John
Something cold for a cold season, and cause I'm cold and have been plagued by a cold for several days now. *sniffles*

anyway, I'm sure there are a lot of people who are chock full to bursting with nice comments for me, and those are always appreciated, but don't be afraid to critique as well, okay? Even something small could be a big help, yeah? :)

think I'll make a print of this later, too... I've barely used my print account at all XD

edit: changed some things best I could according to people's advice...hope it looks a little better ^^; some things not so much because it was intentional or because I don't know how. like the face? No matter how much I stare at it at different angles it still looks like a woman's to me. kinda frustrating XD

and thanks for all the crits guys, seriously... :)

I really love your way of colouring and all the little details that just show the difference of levels between you and many other artist around here. One can see you really ARE a great artist <3

She seems villainous. There's a lot of character in her expression, especially considering she's leading that cult of creepy non-humans.

Nice use of cold colors! It really gives the landscape a sense of desolence.

Great use in detail on the main figure and some of the drones coming into view as well. :thumbsup:

What a beautiful design!
xSlaerx Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2008
I really like this piece.. especially the way you pick your colors. It's very eye-popping.

The only critique I can give, and remember this isn't really an artist's opinion, but more a viewer's, is that her smaller chest and the way her head is positioned makes her look a little bit like a male in a dress. I think her chest needs to be just a tad more pronounced.
Digitalozz Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2008
Well done!!!
Heroic-Shadow Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2008
I noticed the scythe has parts of the blade chipped off, is it possible for people to fight off death? I suppose they didn't win if he is still doing his work.
Draggah-N Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2008
Amazing work. The only thing I would mention is that her right wrist seems to be at an uncomfortable angle for that pose. Other that that, it's stunning work.

There's not alot of detail in the backround..... But then again, I hardly ever put detail in my backrounds......

(But I LOVE:heart: your sythe!!!)

This isn't a critique, but to let you know that :iconfaust7: stole your background, also admitted to it, and won't take it down.

Crap, sorry.

Beautiful!! I love it... personally I would have made is skinnier or given her slightly bigger breasts. But I would have gone with skinnier... winter doesnt bring to mind well-fed...

That Reminds me of Devil May Cry ! =)
lunarsin Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008
Holy geezes! I didn't even SEE that creature figure on the scythe she's wielding! Thats cool. Though her arms seem small in proportion to her body. Her face seems a bit male too. Maybe if you made her nose smaller? o.O

This Work was featured in my last article about Seasons. You can find it here [link] ! congratulations for the fantastic work.

Hmmm... makes me think more of a man rather then a woman...
><;;; That or just wishful thinking.... because she's kind of flat chested...
I don't know....

The expression of her face doesn't look evil at all.
Without the followers, people wouldn't think that way.
I love the big contrast of her face and the fishy followers!

dude i love your work its amazing
RockBarnes Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007
Very nice picture! The grayish overall tone catches the winter atmosphere just perfect. (I was lingering a while, not knowing whether to write a comment at all, because "Nice picture" is IMHO too thin for a comment and I don't find anything to say that was not already said.)

But then I got some thoughts.
Why do her followers have green X-shaped eyes? Since the whole procession looks very religious to me, it could be that they wear masks.

About the scene: They stopped. This is obvious to me because the front piece of her dress is layed out before her. (She must hold it up while walking, otherwise she wouId constantly step on it.) Also the back part of that skirt is draped out in a way that could no be possible while walking or at least it would require magic to hold the dress spread like that - which might explain the black extensions around the border of her skirt.

From that posing, she made half a step forward or leaned towards a bit. I think that she is about to do some ritual or she is waiting for something to happen or to come, while her followers observe the environment.

Now I see something that IMHO could be improved: The background above her head and around the tip of the scythe. There seem to be some undefined forms of lighter and darker gray, yet with sharp borders. IMHO it would be better to blur the borders a bit, so the shadowy forms would A) step back a bit and B) would be more unclear and thus more arcane, feeding the viewer's fantasy like "monsters in the fog".

I assume you rather had an idea how it should look and planned for the view instead of depicting a story you had in mind. If I'm wrong - would it be possible that you might share that story (perhaps as a comment)? If i'm right - how about letting viewers write stories about it?

That weapon she's holding is amazing. You put great detail in it.
Majorasblaze Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2007

She's not wearing any shoes. She's going to have cold feet.

It's just silly.
Nagietek Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think her arms are too small or maybe to thin? Little bit weird look for sure. And because of themrest of her body look too fat...

I think. I pointed that because you wanted some critique.

But anyway - it's very beautiful.
bobbyrtle Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2007
Impossible to critique it. And of course she has a woman's face! There is no mistaking it.
I just love it. I'm sure you get lots of comments like this but I really do adore it. :D
