I love the corner additions on the border, but theyíre slightly uneven. The left top and right bottom are pushing into the border space by a pixel or two, which distracts from the clean lines. The lines of the image itself are lovely though; I like the way that the image starts with the fairy, and then follows the line on the railing across, up the pillars and back down to the fairy.
I have nothing to say about the way you created the background. It is absolutely stunning and beautiful in every way, especially the choices of colors. The pillars were placed well, they have a solid weight that rests on the wall nicely. The way you integrated the bright colors of the wings and sparkles into the lake draws things together neatly and adds a second pop of color that evens the composition.

The figure is well done, I especially like the way you put the reflection on her shirt together with the sparkles and light. The wings are a nice color, but they donít have the same dissipation of light that her shirt has, and no shadows from her arms, both of which would be present in real life. The brightness of her skin is a nice contrast to the darkness of the rest of the picture and the vibrancy of the blues on the wings. her hair is a little odd though. It reminds me some of those electrical balls that send out strings of lightening to your fingers when you touch them.

The bottom is a little awkward. Her shadow is misplaced because the light would leave the pillar behind her in shadow, but not the area beneath her. The line cutting across the bottom leads me to believe that sheís sitting on a railing, while the area underneath that is floor. The lack of foreshortening in the lines spreading out from the line makes it seem unrealistic, however. The lines on the top half of the line also extend into the pillar beyond the railing, so you may want to shave those so they donít appear seperate from the wall itself.

Overall, the image is beautiful and a fantastic depiction of a fantasy world. The dark edge to the image gives it a lovely touch as well, one that doesnít conform to the standard image of fairies. Itís an amazing piece, you keep getting better, so I canít wait to see your next work!

You really took one hell of a turn to the left with your art.

Need to do something different, consequently I do still do much of the darker stuff I just haven't done anything of the caliber that I feel I should post.

And I'm apathetic about politics right now, so eh.

Going through a lot of personal change, have in the past year and a half, so I think a lot of this is me getting that out.
