Oasis by Naariel Oasis by Naariel
Oasis - A beautiful paradise surrounded by a sea of sand. A tropical resting place.

Worked hard and long on this one. Weird how you can imagine a picture and then end up with a totally different result than what you were aiming for!

edit: did a few modifications on face, lips and hair. 8.12.12
double edit: edited color of hair, pearls, branch 11.12.12

Cream and blue work great as a combination, good choice of background colour.

Great job on the hair, not an easy thing to get right!

I like the flower line across her back. The only thing I would have added is something below that flower line. Maybe the hint of a robe, or the top of her arms, just so it doesn't stop at the flower line. (I wouldn't work all the way to the bottom edge of the page, just a little way below the flowers, that's all)


But that's just something small, I like this image, great job.
What do you think?

This work is very flat and I believe it is that way because of the lack of contrast. All of the values are mid tones. There is something about the eye that is off putting to me. It looks like it's being drawn from a 3/4 pose. This just be me personally but I feel like a more contrasting background would be beneficial right now to me it just adds to the overall flatness. I do like how clean your shading is and the sharpness of the edges. I'm curious how far into realism did you want this to be?

The blue and the cream work really well together. You did an excellent job on colouring and colour to colour ratio. |
Your facial expressions are very well drawn and the detail is absolutely amazing~!
