Your gallery interested me a great deal. Your work seems very promising. The impression they make as a whole - and when looked at in thumbnail version is quite impressive.

Your personal style is developing strongly, but I think you have a couple of saltations in development to undergo before you hit a commercial level. The main thing I think you need to tackle to take your work to that next level is your choice of medium, or your style in using it.

Consider working (more) with mediums like watercolor and Photoshop over coloured pencil. Pencil may be easy to work with, but the result (in your work) often distracts the viewer somewhat from your subjects and your beautiful compositional sense. While it *is* possible to use pencil shading to cover areas solidly enough so that the blank bits do not distract the viewer - it would take about three to four times as long as you're currently spending on colouring in the spaces. In my opinion, for that investment in time, your pictures (with their focus on one or two subjects, mostly in the foreground etc), would be better served with a different choice of media.

As for your compositions, I think they are very good. They're wonderfully balanced; you've got a great instinct for colour, and your inspiration really shines through on a few of them - I especially liked 'Lord Nightshade', 'Light and Darkness' and 'Gryphon and Phoenix'.

To be honest, I don't really know what to think about your craft-art figures (Mermaids). If this is really what you enjoy doing, keep at it. But I'd recommend seeing what is out there in Sunday markets and trying to gather other techniques if you really want to pursue it.

:-) Kristina 'Aryana' Siers replies: "Thanks so much for such a long comment and thanks for your advice! I will make a try with watercolors again, and with acrylics, but I confess I am too lazy to learn to use Photoshop. I like most computer colored art, but this is *not* my thing. Drawing and painting for me means to take a pencil, a marker or a brush into my hands and *not* a mouse. 2I really don't understand why using of colored pencil distracts the viewer from the picture subject itself, sorry! 1"

Hi,

I noticed you as a friend of Freawyn, who contributed something, and Kris, who as a member made a major contribution over several years (5,000 pages and many dozens of pics) to Project Myra (see http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myra_(Fantasy) for an overview)

I'd like to ask nicely with 'please' and 'thank you' for permission to use your pictures as illustrations for Myra - with credit and linkback as you specified.
Please? 1

:-) Kristina 'Aryana' Siers replies: "2 Yep, it's okay! But please link back to this page and write a visible copyright note for each picture. "

I really like your gallery. You have a very personal style, and I like the masked people you made. This world of yours seems very imaginative and extraordinary!! Further, I like your horses, and horse images. Very nice. ^_^

:-) Kristina 'Aryana' Siers replies: "Thanks so much for your nice comment! I'm glad that you noticed some personal style in my images!"

Stunning work! Very magical! I particularly like the style of the unicorn. It's pose is very dynamic, you almost expect it to leap from the page. Many of your pieces have the same quality.

I also wanted to let you know that the comment exchange has moved from ET to it's own domain: http://www.commentexchange.org

I hope to see you there.
