Celeste Rigelhof drew my character Frost, so here is a portrait of her great character Saphira. She reminds me of chocolate... :D

I really enjoyed painting this, I really feel like I am getting better with digital painting. Painted from scratch in Photoshop.

Wow!! I’ve seen Celeste’s drawing of...um... ’herself’, and this looks JUST like it, only painted. Great job, I love the eyes.

:-) Vilde Dyrnes Ulriksen replies: "Thanx! I wanted to make her look like the way she draws her herself, only with my painting style, so that was just the reaction I wanted!"

That is just so amazing painting ! !! You did this in photoshop ??! I want photoshop ! Just by looking at how good the painting is photoshop must have a lot of features ! Any clue where I can get it ? , for free ?*cough* short on money now lol.

:-) Vilde Dyrnes Ulriksen replies: "Thank you so much!!! Yes, Photoshop is great, but you need to practice a lot, just as with traditional paint. Umm, I am not sure where you can get it for free... If you know somebody near you who has it, you can ask them if they can copy it. Else, I think it is possible to get a cheap elements version on the internet, they work very well too!

And congratulations! This is my 1000th comment, and I will then make you a picture! You can decide if it shall be made digital og traditional, and what to be on the picture!!! Anything you want 12"

The eye came out wonderfully! I really do like this one. And the expression is too cute. Hmm, if it’s chocolate I’d like to take a bite out of one of the back scales.

:-) Vilde Dyrnes Ulriksen replies: "Thanks!!! Hehe, yeah, me too... I love chocolate ^^"

Aww its so cute can you do one for me?

:-) Vilde Dyrnes Ulriksen replies: "Thanks!
Well, no. Right now I really don’t have the time, and this was more of a friend art-trade. I do pictures for friends as gifts for special occasions sometimes and when someone catch a 1000th comment on my page. I don’t have time for free requests now. I’m sorry."

Aww she’s so cute! Great job!
30 Oct 2010:-) Emma May Richardson
Yeah, I see what you mean about the chocolate, though it would probably be a bad idea to try and bite her. I love the lighting and the eye, well, I love the whole face, it’s great.
