There is, alas, not going to be a Woodworks Anthology (for the fabulous Woodworks e-zine) any longer, but this was intended for the cover! Ink and colored pencil on bristol. Original available, please inquire.
Yeah, this would have made a really nice cover design. I think you nailed the details on the bark and leaves as well. But I think I love the little bugs around the border the best. Very nice job.
oooooooh I really like this! your detail levels are superb. Ah, Advanced crit? I'd just recommend perhaps a more contrasting tonal scale. Everything is pretty pastel and that's fine for a fantasy, dreamy feel, but if you wanted a touch of "realism" I'd put in darker shades here and there
Wonderful work! I love how the tree bark came out. There's wonderful detail in this - love her hair too! And what a great border!
LOVELY!! I love the trees and her hair is to die for!!!
This is gorgeous Ellen! Love the colouring & composition!
