I did this picture for Heather (Visit her website here), of her character Kylana. I'm pretty pleased with it. Character copyright her, of course. This work is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence; although it cannot be identified with Heather's character without her permission.

She's got lovely wings! ^-^ They actually look like they'd be capable of supporting her! She's got a nifty dress on, too. ^-^

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Lol, they might look like they can support her, but they can't unless she's about the size of a fly or something, which she might just be 2 Realistic wing size hasn't bothered me a great deal. I just like big wings 1 And thank you about the dress, I'm never sure about that sort of thing."

A couple of hours? You shi++in' me, foo'?

I have to say, from the beginning, that this picture is wonderfully displayed. The coloring (not only the simple color scheme itself, which I love - especially in a world chaotic with so much unnecessary color and vibrancy - , but also the use of various levels of saturation of color that were used to describe space so elegantly, and the professional technique of blending that you used) is fantastic.

[oh yeah. me. college girl. learnin'. uh-huh.]

My only qualm lays in the balance of this portrait. Obviously, you left quite a region of open space to the left of the lovely character to give a sense of - ah, space, right? Like she's alone in the world surrounded by nothingness. Cool. Great. Me. Lovin' it.
But that makes the right half of the pic really heavy. And now that I see myself typing this, it doesn't seem so important anymore. Maybe I'm really saying all this just to hear the sound of myself typing...

It's beautiful.


:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Yep, only a couple of hours. Tickets have been going really fast - some people have had to wait whole minutes sometimes, apparently.

Thank you, I have so much trouble with colour sometimes, it's great you think so highly of it. And that you picked up on the saturation-depth thing, I didn't think there was enough depth in the picture to see that, but I have been doing it ever since I found out about it. When I remember to, that is. Professional blending technique? Sweet, I won't argue.

Balancing, pah. I don't hold with that fancy college stuff 12 But there are reasons, which surprises me - there has to be so much emptiness to balance the figure, if there was any less, it'd look even more unbalanced, but I don't know a whole lot about that sort of thing. Seemed like a good idea at the time. That alone in the world thing was something I was aiming for, I wanted her to have a sort of quiet, irrepressible strength.

It's not fair, you know, that you get to go to college and learn all these cool things about colour and balance and stuff.

Thank you for your comment, I'm glad you stopped by!"

Yep, this is defentatly the one I love the most. I gives me a really warm feeling. I know, sometimes I can have a weird taste of pictures, but with this one....... I like it how she stands there, on the edge of the cliff. It's like she is waiting for somehting.

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thank you! This picture always makes me think of happy endings, for some reason."

She's beautiful. Simply beautiful. I love the wings.

Very appealing picture
something about the minimal albeit colour tinged background
suggesting space and sky and sunrise
then the position of the faerie ..
... Just my take on pleasing spacial arrangement ..
The faerie is lovely too , love her dress and her spread wings
the colour of her wings and hair together are good
