Fairytale by Claudia-SG Fairytale by Claudia-SG
2012. Photoshop CS5 + Wacom Intuos4.

Personal artwork.
No specific reference used, but a bunch of photos to have a good palette and for the leaves.

I made this artwork to challenge myself with unusual (for me of course :D) atmosphere and lights, a warm and autumnal palette. I used very few layers than usual, and I tried to keep everything as rough as possible, with more visible brush strokes.
I hope you like it! :aww:


I would like to dedicate this piece to :iconnube85: because when I was painting this on livestream, she was in hospital, giving birth to a little baby girl! :heart: Congratulations!
:blowkiss:

I know it's a rather odd thing to say, but I love that hand. What a lovely artistically executed hand. And the leaves and colors are great too.

I love this because i'm so tired of passive, lethargic looking female subjects. I like that this woman looks like she could be up for some adventures.

I really like the colours here, and how you drew her hands. If you haven't done, I'd be really happy to see you do a tutorial for hands. This is a really impressive piece; good job! :)
