Masterful work! The contrasting colours and lighting are brilliantly done, and the perspective is just as amazing!

400,000 hits.

PLEASE CLICK "DOWNLOAD" FOR MORE WALLPAPER SIZES (1280x1024, 1600x1200, 1900x1200). :heart: A walkthrough can be found on my blog.

I've been trying to work on this personal piece here and there over the past few weeks in an effort to maintain my sanity. And now, at 6.30 in the morning, I've finally finished. I'm not sure if I feel sane, though. It'll probably be the last thing I post until after exams (end of June).

I can't believe I've made it this far. Four hundred thousand hits. A lot has happened in the past year, and I feel that I'm finally starting to grow as an artist. I would never be where I am today without all of your support, so I am extremely grateful for your constant watches, favourites, comments and visits. To be able to touch people with my art (not like that) means the world to me. :love:

So, I decided to make this wallpaper for you. It's not much, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless! You might remember Trelise from last time.

So thank you, thank you, thank you all so much. :blowkiss: I hope you'll stick around as I continue to try evolving as both a person and an artist.

PS. I'll provide more resolutions as soon as I get some sweet, sweet sleep.

PPS. Thanks so much for helping me out with the anatomy, =ciaee & *gorrem! Freakin' perspectives...

Been a fan of your work for a long time. I love the T - shirt design for the 100,000 hits. And this is a great continuation.

The colors of this piece are great. The red, detail and contrast draws the eye to the face which is the focus. The interpretation of hair is beautiful and well executed. Well executed too is the face, which being shaded is also hard to render but you did it well.

Slight improvements possible could be made to the composition. This is probably a bigger piece that you cropped and i feel the girl should be moved slightly to the left, the skirt bigger and legs smaller. Also the leg pointing down vertically breaks up the composition. Not that i can draw figures in perspective though.

Hope this pic doesn't get stolen too : )

Hi there! :)

Thanks so much for this critique. I'm afraid I'll have to respectfully disagree with a few of your suggestions though.

I only cropped about 50 pixels (after resizing) off the left, to make it suitable for a wallpaper size, so Trelise was actually situated a tiny bit further to the right. I actually wanted to position her on that side, as it is a wallpaper, and I wanted to give room for icons. I was thinking of moving her a bit further to the right, haha!

I probably wouldn't enlarge the skirt, as I wanted the fulness of her hair to be the focus. Also her legs are quite exaggerated (with the perspective) so if I made them any smaller, it would push the torso out of kilter.

Both of her legs are under her skirt, and in order for the pose to make sense, I had to include them (otherwise I'd have to crop it at the skirt, which would disrupt the circle shape). While I agree the flow of the composition isn't as smooth once her legs appear, I would've rathered this than the mentioned option, I think.

Thank you so much for your honesty, though. :) I really appreciate that. I hardly ever get crits!

The expression on her face to me reads alluring, but devious. Such a beautiful piece.

Beautiful use of hues in the hair!

The sharpness of her hair and the blurryness around her dress and legs adds a cool sense of perspective. Great work!

Wow I only wish i had stuck with drawing 
The warm and dark colors together really give this more contrast, which compliments her attitude well. I also love the details that you put into the hair and face. Thank you for making this fantastic wallpaper; I know I will be using this. :love:
