I did it in November 2012. I missed snow, and I have never attempted to draw it before.

Well right now it is like spring out in the dead of winter.. like mid 70's that is the only plus about here I guess... yet I do prefer the cold to tell you the truth..

Well the burning book is the very last copy of a fairytale about a young witch. It is the story of her life, and yes, she torched it herself... There was nothing in that book that could make her change her mind.

Thank you for your interest. :aww:

Oh that is nice. I like to know the connection between the artwork and the idea coz every work has an idea and if there is none than for me it is not an art.
Thanks for telling me the about your piece and now it is more beautiful to me.

I hate cold weather, but winter is the most beautiful time of the year (where it snows, it doesn't snow where i am).

Who knows, perhaps he was scheming against her, so she had him bewitched and imprisoned ...

hehe, do you not have a story in mind when you draw the picture? :P

I can't draw, but whenever I imagine the picture I want to draw, I also envision a story behind that picture.

This is a really amazing image. It's incredible how much detail you're able to get with the snowy
ground with the majority of it being implied with gentle shading. :wow:

Thank you friend.
Though as for my taste it seems too light and empty... almost as if because of the white snow it does not fit my gallery. But in any way I wanted to try something different :)

I agree, that it is something different from your usual images-
but that doesn't make it a bad thing. It shows flexibility!

so pretty, you draw it very well:faint:

i love her face, very pretty and matured:D
i adore your shadings as usual^^

great work and great job!:)
wish you luck on the next drawing:D

There are things I am unhappy with, something bothers me in her eyes, as if they were too closely set, and it is very pale, I know it is winter, but perhaps I should have added more contrast...

It was ready in November, I just never did not submitted it.

I will need lots of luck with my next drawing, as I stopped drawing altogether... I got tablet, tried digital, got discouraged and now i am empty, void and hollow... I need a break

but I still have some un-submitted pieces to keep me DA page alive for a while ;)

Shiya-na-chan Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013   Traditional Artist
hmm...i think the contrast is fine^^
and her eyes? maybe the shadings on her eye need to make it more smoother:)
though overall it's a great picture, be proud with it but never stop trying to do your best and have fun:)

dawww~i got the same problem too^^;
don't worry, i felt the same with digital at 1st too, but i'm sure you can pull it off:D
i remember my friend told me, people who are great at traditional will be great at digital too:)
i'm sure it'll turn out okay:)

ahaha^^
i can't wait to see that:squee:

It will long before I will dare to submit something digital.
Now I think I would need to invest months if not years of practice in digital business, but I am not sure if it is worth that time :D

And thanks for encouragement :hug:
