This is such a beautiful image, with the lush color and rich sense of touch of the fabric draping, pulling, and suspending. You've captured a sense of stillness that somehow leaves an impression of suspended motion. Her figure is so graceful, I love the poise of her hands and the way her left leg falls against the right. Simple? Bah! Excellent work to this untutored eye, anyway! Thanks for sharing!
I *knew* this one had a story! It's not what I expected - fun and sassy, go figure! I hope I've done her justice, as your beautiful art does! < margaretsmcgraw.blogspot.com/2… >
As usual, you make me look at my images as if I'm on the outside, looking in. Almost as if I had never seen them before. Reading your text I have the feeling (once again) that the image was made for the words and not the other way around. It's a rather unique feeling, I tell you. You write wonderfully. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks! Interestingly, these are also the images that I hesitate more before posting because I think they're too simple and no one will like them. I almost didn't post this image, until I found what I believed was a good lighting and then it kind of looked worth posting.
I struggle with that too, but in a lot of ways, a simple image done well can be more striking than one overloaded with objects and textures. T me, it's about the quality of the final image. The way the idea was brought out and communicated.
People who create 3d often get all hung up in how many polygons, how much detail, how many models and textures, how little postwork. Images like this - perfect composition, clear viewpoint, lovely colors - they are beautiful because of YOUR abilities, not the capabilities of the program.
