JaiWo Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2009
This is gorgeous. The colors are fantastic! The sunlight looks so real, and so does the silk.

Daliot Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
What messy brush strokes? In fact: brushstrokes are a part of art's charm!
She is going somewhere? It feels as though she is on a boat - the wind filling the sail and her red scarf - away from town and everything she knows. The sunset is like the end. Peaceful but definite.
I envy your talent.

Finally one true, active and fancy "worker".
I find you have a fresh ideas, and you are not so fixed with one monolithic idea- beautiful.
You are a free man!

VioletVolchok Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2009  Student General Artist
I would call this piece beautiful, but there is a niggling thought in my mind that that's not the right word...I suppose "inspiring" would begin to cover my emotions here. It doesn't look remotely unfinished to me, even though the brush strokes are visible at full size - they only add charm, and make the viewer see into your working process... which only makes me that much more awed at your talent. The best of luck.
milan221 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
zomg! I had an exact same idea! then again, there are tons of brunettes who wear scarfs during sunsets. :P

can't wait to see the fully finished work.
sinn78 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist

Seeing-Blind Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2008
CorelPainter, right????????!

I didn't know you had a DA... wonder how many other artist there do... *starts thinking* I know Marta and Wen-Xi do... And Sutton made that (helpful) DVD... *mind changes subjet* ... wat a pretty (unfinished) picture! (I sound like an old lady! D:< )

But then, how can -I- express my deep-love-at-first opinion of this picture?
If I had your talent, I would do nothing but draw all day looong~~
