I've always thought that she ought to be Goldberry, aside from the little dragon, of course. I think it is the unselfconscious graceful loveliness and even playfulness.

bustermaximus Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2003
Lovely. I has a bit of that Larry Elmore quality to it. I think it's the whole corsetted beauty and dragon thing. Great tonality to the entire piece. I especially love the foliage of the plants.

srgio Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2002
Another great piece. I still can't get over the way you create all this different textures, from her clothes to the tree, and with the way her clothes and hair are moving, you can almost see the wind blowing by her.
jaxspider Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2002

eilidh Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2002  Professional Digital Artist
Absolutely gorgeous... masterwork!
C-Novack Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2002  Professional Photographer
The attention to detail is wonderful...from her laced up bodice (sp?) right down to her bejeweled feet. The shading of light and dark is also top notch. This drawing brings to mind the illustrations in the Fairy Book series (i.e. The Red Fairy Book, The Pink Fairy Book, The White Fairy Book, etc, etc.). Great job!!!
junglechink Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2002  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
is that a little baby dragon, or something?
ur sketchy style is so clean..

are you cheating with something?
you must be taking some art-steroids!
gimme some!
momma said "share.".

methinks her head a wee bit small
in proportion to her body. but the big hair and hoodie
makes it look bigger. that's pretty cool.

love it.
warble Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2002
Beautiful! Holy shite, :) (Smile)

You have a wonderful touch for shading, and I love the fantasy feel of your artwork.
