Summer/Fire... Entry for SKOTW that became this ahah ^^
Of course, a female surrounded by heat and fire for representing summer.

It was interesting to do... :)

Inspired by [link]
(so credits for the original woman goes to : [link])
This is NOT photomanipulation though.

Wow nice use of colours and shadows. I love how you've done her hair as well, it looks amazing.
Great work.

Very nice!

I can never get the body form just right. This will be a nice piece to study, if you don't mind. :)

I'd say it's the best piece from your gallery :heart:. Both colours and colouring are great. The whole composition is really good, too, the darker part of the background on the left balance the pic in a nice way. As for the figure itself - I absolutely love her smile and body (especially legs). This orange thing looks great, too.
Well done! :w00t:

Cruising through your gallery, I'd have to say this is your best piece to date (and I'm not saying that 'cause she's naked ;) ). Very nice composition which I feel hit dead on with your intention to represent summer. Great colours and also great anatomy. The hair seems a little less realistic than the body but it seems to work well with the background, so it's all good.

I saw in your last journal you were wondering about popularity. Well, I can see that you've definitely improved over the years and while I'm not personally into fan art (I like Naruto, but there's a billion pics of him around DA), if you continue to produce work of this quality, you'll be getting a lot more notice. Keep up the great work!
