The face of spring by Technoelfie The face of spring by Technoelfie
I'm sure nobody cares, but here's my current work in progress. :P It's pure practice again, am mainly trying to get the colors as right as my current powers of observation allow. It's supposed to be a nymph/wood spirit/whatever.

I actually wanted this to be a very quick sketch, but I like how it's turning out so I'm planning to put some more work into it. :)

Final edit: This is finished as far as I'm concerned. :D It's definitely not perfect, but it turned out okay considering it was only a practice piece. Anyway, I've learned a lot from diddling with it and I feel I should move on to practice other things as well. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

I like this one and the updated one, but I like the cleaner look at the bottom and the eye color here better. I can't decide which hair I like better, they both work in different ways.

she is so graceful and i really feel the refreshing character that charges your entire picture with so much life! honestly, i like this version of "the face of spring" better than the one you got a DD on.... O___O i think this is because you allowed this lovely maiden's hair to be more free in the wind. also, i like the color choice of her hair. the super shine of her lips is pretty neat too, and in this version, i like the SLIGHTLY darker shading underneath her eyes XDDD
don't get me wrong - i still like the other one too =)

This version looks softer, more tender... But the repainting of it looks more vibrant and alive. It's the eyes. I love both, though. ^^

this is pretty good, except that the girl itself looks like winter not spring....maybe b/c of the hair color

You're so modest. This is supremely beautiful, perfectly capturing the essence of spring just like you'd hoped. It reminds me of something from Fantasia.
