Breathtaking. I have to say.  Your characters remind me some of my OC.

when I look at this masterpiece I think of Fleur Delacour from the best-seller "Harry Potter"
This is exactly like I imagine her when I read the book

The most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my life! Could you draw a male for her? Exactly like she, with blue eyes and blond hair and so kind and imperious sight. I swear she's a goddess...

This has to be Princess Radia Noora of Tyrnael, the protagonist of my upcoming fantasy novel, "The Princess of Aenya." She exudes all of the qualities that Radia has, being equally beautiful, innocent and powerful. Her name, "Radia," literally means "radiant," someone emitting light, and this is what seems to be happening in the picture. Radia also has blonde hair. I would only change her eye color (one eye, actually) since Radia has a mismatched set of eyes, representing the two moons of Aenya: one is turquoise, the other violet. Also, for whatever reason, you've named this pic "Awakening," and she seems to be dressed in what I can only describe as angelic/Jesus like clothing. This perfectly matches my story, because Radia is killed in the book, and later comes back to life, "awakening" to her true identity as a nature deity.

Of course, none of this means anything if I do not have your permission to use this work. I am prepared to pay $200 to name and use this character, and would only go so far as to change the tint of one eye. Please accept this offer.

This is so beautiful!  Might I ask if you looked at any references to draw her face?  You seem to draw faces so nice from every angle, and I'm wondering if you have any reference photos in particular you look at, or if the face is completely from memory?  It's lovely!
TheInfiniteGlow Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015  Student General Artist
Can I use your art as a reference? :3
I'll give credit :D

We have a fairy tale here in Czech republic about princess with golden star on her forehead. Her name is Lada. This picture reminded me of her though she looks different in the movie adaptation. :)

Yes, amazing, if you really paint it ! With what do you paint it ? Oil, Acryl or Aquarell ... other ?
Because digital Art (Photoshop etc.) is no really Art for me (only my personal meaning !!) !
Selenada Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
May I ask what you think it is? :D an image that just appeared on it's own? I looked with my eyes into photoshop and image drew itself? or maybe you think that I took a photo and did something with it that it looks like I painted it?
Painting digitally is just another medium, the skill and painting still comes from within myself, my mind, and my hand transfered it onto the tablet and appeared digitally. Yes you can not touch paints physically with your fingers and brushes and you can not feel the texture of digital art after it is done, you rely on your computer to see those things. Both traditional art and digital has it's advantages and disadvantages. Just because we can not grasp music with hands does not mean it is not music, just because we read words off the computer screen and not letter and physical paper does not mean it is not words and communication. Digital art still transferes the feelings, because we still see the image.
However if it is still no art to you, it's fine, who said what is wrong or right, we choose our own beliefs. Thanks for stopping by and telling  me about what you think is art and what is not to you.

 How could you improve upon the picture people think of when they say "Pretty as a picture" might one ask?Love 
Viscerotonic-Petrich Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014

You know, I keep coming back to this. I really like it (definitely because I love angels XD).

Could I get a print of this? I'd spent some money for it.
