This one is really cool! It is modeled after the beautiful faerystar!

Here she is (since she's so big I stuck her in my eBay store):

Wow, I love it! =) If you're looking for a critique, I have one that I think is good, but I'm a little afraid that other non-artists who see it might find it offensive. LOL. Oh well . . . I actually think that painting would be better without the faeries in the front. It seems to conflict with the style of the rest of the painting and the pre-raphaelite mood. They seem like they were just stuck in there and don't really fit in visually (at least for me), but they make sense with the title. Hey, I still love it. I think it's a beautiful, wonderful painting . . . as all of yours are. If you don't wish to receive any critiques let me know (although I must admit I normally wouldn't have anything to critique! LOL) I LOVE the way the light is shining on the landscape behind the girl, like it's glittering. It's so pretty.

Thank you Amanda!

Your thoughts are always welcome! To be honest, by the time I've finished a painting, I am happy with it, and I like how it looks. If I weren't, I'd still be working on it, lol. I specifically and consciously integrated the two different styles - I find it striking, and since I paint primarily for myself, that's why!

That's great then! Oh yeah, it would make sense that you don't really need critiques since you've already finished and would continue to work on it if you didn't like it. LOL. Oh well. Feel free to critique my artwork anytime (that is, when it's existent!LOL) Sheesh, I need to get to work.

>^__^<

Art critiques were always my least favourite thing about school =P I've never been good about giving or getting constructive criticism, lol. On the giving end I'm always afraid of hurting people's feelings, and when it comes to the receiving end, it's usually after I'm all done and satisfied and onto the next project!!! Here at LJ I don't really mind though, since most everyone here is my friend, and most of you are all artists in your own right (rather than snarky college professors, lol).

Yeah, they're the worst sometimes. Don't be afraid to hurt my feelings. If something looks funny and I haven't mentioned it, then I probably havent noticed! Or if I post a work-in-progress, then it's nice especially to have some advice! =)

That's only if you want to though. I'm beginning to see the uselessness of critiques when working on your own though . . . after some more mental analysis. I think most artists are the same way . . . when they're working on something, there might be several things to improve (but they probably have all those things in mind). When the painting is finished, the artist is usually satisfied. I know I wouldn't call a work finished if I didn't like it. Unless I felt it was beyond hopeless.
