I remember I saw this a few months ago and I was so amazed.. it's one of my favorite paintings in DA! My computer was formatted in a horrible way and it was deleted as well. Then I came back looking for it and it's my desktop picture ever since.
To be honest, I like this version better. (: The lighting is spectacular and more refined, and the piece has more emotion. The other painting is also quite amazing, I just happen to like this one more. (:
It's hard for me to decide which of the two versions I like better. As others have said the previous one has a more light, playful, fantasy mood, while this one retains some fantasy, but feels more refined and realistic. Both are really great <3
I like both versions. They look so different though! The other has a more lighthearted and introductory feeling to it. This has more defined details, but...to put it in words, if this were a story, the other was the introduction whereas this one is reaching the center of the middle. Her pose makes me think she feels the freedom she can only have in an aerial space like that.
This is simply beautiful. I really love the amount of detail in this picture- the background is amazing, I love the cloth folds and the lighting too- it really has a great atmosphere- and the girl looks so warm Great work <3
