It is hard for me to tell whether I like the background or the character more, as they blend together seamlessly and complement each other so well. It's not like I want to segregate the picture in such a way, but both components are so captivating that I keep going back and forth, studying each in turn. The reindeer's elegance is rivaled only by the surrounding plants and quiet morning glow. The setting is perfect (and it reminds me of the mountains around here). I'd be somewhat contemplative in such a setting, too! Job well done.
Bloody 'ell mate. It be goin' without sayin' that ye have talent. It almost seems that the plants are growin' up around her. An' that creates quite a mystical feel. And the jewelry is a excellent touch as well.
You know what I love about this the most? That eventhough she's in the middle of a snowcoated field, all around her, and her alone are all these beautiful blooming and hearty plants. And the plant choices are actually what make it so enchanting... the combination of droopy with straight stalk plants... all contrasted with the flow of her loincloth skirt and her flowing hair... Mad Props to you.
Thank you so much for mentioning the plants. I worked hard on those, and I'm really proud of them. I love white poinsettias (spelling totally off), and field flowers. I really wanted a magical feel, like she brings life and beauty to an otherwise cold setting.
Thank you for a lovely comment, I really appreciate the effort you went to. Thanks.
*laughs* Well thank you for the lovely artwork! You did a fantastic job on the poinsttas(sp?). The colors all work so well together... the flowers just add to the charm and beauty of the whole work. You pulled of the magical feel you wanted. ^_^ Congrats!
