Water elemental pic. This was a new technique for me; I first drew it in pencil, then inked it. Then because I had new Prismacolor markers and was unsure of how to use them, I scanned in the inked drawing and ::printed it out:: .. coloring on the printed page in case I messed up. Was a good choice :) And I like the results. My brother has the original, he liked it :)

Wow Gayle, I really like this one, I love how it looks like she's rising out of the water but her hair dips back in, even though the water has risen outwards, er does that make sense..oh well, neat marker work, I wish we could get prisma markers here, ne'er mind. It's quite a sassy little piece, good job! ^_^

Neat. I like the way her hair blends in with the water.

If it weren't for the earth elemental pic, this would be my favorite. Nice use of color and design, good balance and symetry. It's very simple and clean and would be ruined if you had added more. Still some of your pics would look more complete with a background... I'd be interested to see what this one looks like somw some matting and a frame. 2

I Love it!!! Your best yet! If you make the background black then it would look a whole lot cooler!Maybe make it night outside. No stars though. maybe a Moon!

This is really cool. I love how you have the water puddling. Just using the few colors that you did makes this a very simplistic, but very attractive piece.

I love the way her hair streams down into the water. She looks almost like a fountain. The drawing is so simple, but it has a strange kind of ethereal feel to it. I'm gushing I know. I want it!
