Stacey as Faery of Water by Wen-M Stacey as Faery of Water by Wen-M
this is alot different from the original concept, and I totally screwed it up. =( hopefully i will paint a better version of it later on.

anyways, the original concept was to have her in the stream under some Plumerias trees and there will be sun lights shinning onto the bottom of the stream. I think I really messed up on the composition and just kinda lost the interest but i finished it because I still like the green.

dtrammell Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very nice... I don't think you screwed up the composition at all. The image is very well balanced and keeps your eye moving around. I do understand what you meant by not being able to get the water effects right; water, especially from directly above like that, can be quite tricky to get right.
Wen-M Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2004
thanks =)

That is so gorgeous. Very nicely done. :)
bretto Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2004
The texture of her dress and her face are just beautiful. I'd love to see, though, some more texture in the waterlillies. As big blobs of green they just do no justice to her. I'd also love to see some more natural browns and yellows added instead of the teal.
Wen-M Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2004
hehehe, so true.
I tried to keep to mainly green for this composition tho. (background at least) other wise i would add the colors you suggested.
TehWitness Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2004
*sobs hysterically* There's just no escape. I checked out more of your drawings....they're all good!!!! You should have some morals you evil person, you. When you post crap this awesome, it lowers the awesomeness of those around you with lesser (or non-existant) coolness than you. Think of the losers man, think of the losers!!!
TehWitness Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2004
Lies! All lies! Your pictures tell me otherwise wen.

*leans close to picture and listens*
tehwit: *gasp* What?!
pic: *whisper whisper*
tehwit: You don't say...*nods head*

Yep. Its true. They just confirmed my worst fears. Your cool. Not in the least bit loserish.
Wen-M Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2004
i AM a loser (Y_Y)

I donīt thinkthat you messed up, it is really good.
Only one critic, I think it needs a little of that shine stuff on the water, but I love it, I love greem too!!!
kchilt Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2004  Professional General Artist
Very beautiful composition. Its so calming and soothing to look at. The colors are deep and very involving, its hard to keep my eyes off them. And her form is so free moving, the flow of the piece is so easy and laid back. It sets a wonderful atmosphere with a happy tone that makes one think of happier memories. Very strong emotional and even sound in your talents on the painting. The brushing looks great and blends everything together with a smooth texture. The water is believable but more of a sense of imagination than reality. The addition of all the vibrant flowers really add a great deal to the picture. So easy to drift among the sights in this, you really captured a wonderful moment here. That smile is just perfect, its easy to melt away anything bad when looking at this!
