samurai girl by spx samurai girl by spx
ive been working on this for the last few days and this is the result. wasnt sure if it belongs in indyart or wallpapers. but i think it makes an ok wp.. it has room for icons on the left side, under the tree. plus, your icons get shade!

(i dont know his/her name, but props to the person who made the custom brushes i used)

This is very cool, I like your style. My only complaint is that the sword is very big and chunky-looking. But otherwise this is a gorgeous piece, well done.

I think the harshness on hte left looks fine, personally. gives it a real roughed up, old, almost rustic look without being over the top. I love the warmer tones to this. Has a calm feeling to it in the midst of the chaotic brushes and lines (like most of your stuff).

the detail in the hair and face are excelent ~ her arms are a little long, but thats probably why she's a master samurai; she'd probaby kick my ass in a game of hoops too. hehe

its got a super nice feel. i like it.
pogotribal Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2002
this style is absolutely wonderful, your lines, your coloring technique, and the very well detailed face. +fav

This is too fucking rad, the colors come together so nicely, it has such a lush feel to it, definitely nice :) (Smile)
switched Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2002
I've always seen these types of pics as paintings rather than airbrushings because you can see the 'brush' strokes. Very nice image. Her head seems too finished in comparison to the rest of the peice. And her arms are very long. Love the entire background. The tree is suggested very well.

This style is so like my own it's scarey.

This is really bautiful! Love the main color, and the tree. Great!

It looks like a dream almost. I have noticed that the sword and the arms are a little odd looking. (If someone noticed this before, disregard it) It looks great though. Painting is a hard skill to master, well it is for me anyway. You've shown greatness with it. Thumbs Up

Great Wall!

I've always liked these expressive, whimsical styled artworks. Good job.
nailz Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001
nothing of relevance to be said here, there isnt a thing i would have you correct, or change at all, this piece is perfect!

-insert meaningless string of words here-
MattSpire Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001  Professional Digital Artist
something about it (maybe its just the background colors) reminds me of the ancient asian painting style.

very good. looks sharp and realistic but drowns in surrealistic emotion.
wilted Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001
This is fucking great.

I love the colors, and her dress, and the expression on her face. The sword seems a bit too European to be a samurai sword, though, but still, this piece definitely deserves Daily Deviation. Hell, it deserves Weekly Deviation... if there was one, that is.

I got my mojo workin...
fuzzys Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001
you're great! i love this piece.. you must have had some background with fine art there? :) (Smile) congrats on DD btw.. very very well deserved!

hmm... erm... WOW!

this is awesome, i'm just blown away by this piece. it has so much feeling and expression, woah.. *speechless*

sumalangitnawa Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001
praise for the technique.

but to me the real beauty in this is it's telling me you're gifted with the artist's eye. sure, a finger clicks the mouse, but the ability to filter the important details in scene, and then for it to evoke the mood and reaction from the viewer, without unecessary splash - I think that's what you got the DD for.



did you have a model?

this is amazing. i love the shape and detail in the whole piece, especially the face of the girl.

spacejazz Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2001
Very classy. I love the differing brush strokes and attributes and the colours look fantastic.

Very nicely done. A tough act to follow though I'm sure you can =) (Smile)
