Nightingale in a golden cage by PopovaJr Nightingale in a golden cage by PopovaJr
That's me locked inside reality's maze
Come someone make my heavy heart light
Come undone bring me back to life


Well yeah that's supposed to be Leliana from the Dragon Age (by BioWare), but I dunno anymore. took me forever. ok i'll stop whining at this point. how was your day?
Originally it was inspired by Nightingale's Eyes, the tavern song from da:i and actual  intro for Leliana's dlc for origins(wich is in elvish I believe). But then it was rudely interrupted by Nightwish's The Escapist. The lyrics is for what she was, and the melody itself for  what she became:]. Gotta say I'm proud to be her friend in origins and work with her in inquisition.

This is fine work, especially the hair on the right(hair is really hard). I'll give you a few pointers. You did good work with the light on the face but the back of her shoulder (near the neck) should not be highlighted since it would be shadowed by her head. Also, the next strongest light is from behind so hightlight some strands of hair at the edges, it will POP I promise (if I'm unclear, text me and I'll give you an example). Do some experiment with broad brushes, and no smoothing (your lineart shows that you can). I really love the light and freckles on her shoulder, looks like real skin. Congratulations!

Oh my god, you pamper(or should I say spoil) me with incredibly nice comments!!!:D (Big Grin) I'm very happy you like it, and I also wish I could do more of digital colourful  art, but it takes me a really long time to finish just one! At some point I'm just stuck and keep procrastinating for a while. Well, I think eventually it won't cause so much pain, so I'd be able to draw much more stuff. But for now I do what I can, so thank you so much for your support!!Love Tight Hug

You are mostly welcome, my dear! :tighthug:
And trust me, I know, how long it takes to make a digital art. ^^;
I can work on one for more, than a month. ^^;  But the result is usually well worthy of all the effort and time, in my opinion. ;)
