Gossamer Wishsong by OchreJelly Gossamer Wishsong by OchreJelly
This will be the last bit of art I work on for a long while; things have reached a point where more important things need priority. This picture has been in the works for a long time, so I wanted to finish it up before I do break.

Anyway, this is a portrait of a close friend of mine drawn as an elf (I don't know if she wants everyone to know who she is though; I guess I should ask! :D) I said I would do this a while ago, but it didn't get finished. I finally managed to add the last bits to the picture early this morning; which is the dress bits. Perhaps someday I will go back and detail it to match with the rest of the portrait, but for now it remains as is, although it bothers me a bit. Eventually I would like to make it a bit larger in scope...similar to Grey Wanderer, perhaps.

The title is a play on words from some book. *shrug* Anyway, thank you for looking.

Oh, this is beautiful... I adore her ears and how the light shines through them, the dress is fantastic, and the skin looks so real... For some reason, my favourite parts are the nose and mouth, but it's all awesome. Much love.

No wonder, I was wondering why she had so much personality! She's based on a real person :) I find paintings based on real people to have more character than ones that are just made up ^_^ Lovely work :) Hope you have a good break

I tried hard to make the nose as close to the reference as I could....the eyes are a bit off compared to the reference, but it's alright. I'll fix it when I return to this one someday....

This is really lovely... you have come along so far in your painting techique... very professional *is now very envious* Hang in there... I don't know any specifics... but having been through something that has had the same result on my artwork, I can sympathize. Take the time to resolve what needs to be resolved and the creative energy will be able to come back to you. :hug:
