One of my favorite pieces. Ever. I am shocked that it was never DD'd.

I saw this painting on Elfwood a long time ago. I saved it for my personal viewing, and since then I've put the novel I was working on at the time aside to write two others... The one I'm editing right now was initially inspired by this image. ^-^ All that ranting aside, I think it's great.

Jesus.. this must have taken forever. I'd like to know the background story about this though. Why is she crying, etc..

And yea.. I wish it could be a little bigger. :) (Smile)

Goodness... such a fantastic illustration. Water colour is NOT a tame medium, yet you master it wonderfully.

OMG ... Did you hear that? ... my jaw dropping! This is entrancing, vibrant, superior ... Aside from your obvious talent for drawing/painting, you have such an eye for color. Rose

... I'm in total awe of your color choices... the pale green against the earthtones is such a great combination... the fabric moving across the canvas on the lower edge adds so much movement to the piece, such a clean balanced composition...

Her armor looks phenomenal, and her pose is so valiant, tho it makes her look like she is not proud to have slayed a dragon.
By the way those dragons in the mist (I see 2 of them, but I'm only sure of one) behind her are a touch to the whole piece. Love it!!

great job. I don't know anything about painting, but this looks great. You have a lot of detail in this and it must be that much harder using watercolor.
