no, the textures really MAKE the peice. (i really love how you do them) the lighing is grand. interesting how you left the black outline on he right side but got rid of it on the left. it really softenes the hole thing up. why is the black still on her right arm and body though? is that becuase the colour of the shirt is darker... just looked better? the shadows on the blanket are very well done. do you use any reference for your pics? how long would this one take,, line art then colour, would you say? i also like how the sky isnt blue. (blue skys are so over done) and the tree is hazy where the light would be behind it. id really love to see some of your non leila art. I know this DA is for that stuff.. but do you have a gallery anywhere else?
