The first snow has fallen. The storm that brought it only just passed. A nymph stands beneath the tree that once sheltered her from the sun's summer heat, watching as the little woodland animals scrounge for what food can be found. *EDIT* 7/2003- A cleaned up better version for your veiwing pleasure. ^_^ Touched up the tree and put a bit more detail into the nymph.

Gorgeous...the tree looks lonely, standing out there all by itself. I love the colour of the nymphs hair especially.

16 Venessa (Sed) Persons replies: "Yeah I suppose he does look a bit lonesome, but that's why the nymph is there. She keeps him company. ^_^ Thanks for the comment!"

The composition is wonderful! Of course, I'm pretty partial to snow-scenes... 10

I could suggest some crisp dark tones on the tree and on the dryad, maybe some sharp textures; the line of spruce trees feels like what's in focus, and I think that some more details on the figure and the tree would bring our attention back to them. Love the creatures!

2 Venessa (Sed) Persons replies: "Hmmm. I'll try that! I thought it looked a bit out of focused, but wasn't sure how to fix it. Thanks for commenting!"

She should put some shoes on - she's so cold, her hair is turning blue!

Seriously though, I like this picture - the atmosphere and background are very nice. ^_^ Yaaaay talent!

2 Venessa (Sed) Persons replies: "  Well, I tried giving her shoes, but she wouldn't wear them. I barely convinced her to put on the dress! Something about interfearing with her connection to the earth.... I dunno... strange creatures, nymphs. *sigh*"

god.. the nymph looks cold.. she's probably thinking why the hell am i in this skimpy dress with no shoes?! it works for summer but draw me in something warmer!! >D

22 Venessa (Sed) Persons replies: "Was her idea not mine! I tried giving her some shoes and some nice fur leggings, but Nooooooo. Silly nature girl must be as near nekkid as possible. *sigh*"

The squirrell and the jackalope are cool too ... ~12

1 Venessa (Sed) Persons replies: "Hehehehe Thankies! Took a good while before I got them too look like animals instead of discolored blobs. 12 However, he's just a normal bunnie, no jackalope... though his ears do have an antler-like appearance now that you mention it. ^_^"
