Ember by Zephyri Ember by Zephyri
I can't begin to tell you how much fun this piece was to do. I'd been having a shitty run with art, until this little lady fell out of the stylus. Done in about 4 hours too, which goes to show sometimes I should stop thinking and just paint! No refs, either, all straight off the top of the head, which is often when it's the most fun.

Ember seems to suit her as a character name... I might do some more stuff with her.

All done is PS.

Your use of colour and shapes in this image amazes me. The balance is really nice.
Along with that the name/title really fitting her. Impressive! Very inspiring and I will definitely try something similar!

The feeling and atmosphere in this image is like no other. I like the wildness of it, and her face with a slight hint of smile, as if this was a ritual of ease and that she'd feel content of her own knowledge. Her clothing are really nice and I think very original as well, and the very bright details such as the feathers and flames give a really nice contrast to the image. Also the striking colours against the nature's greens and browns is very delicious for the eyes to look at. The pose is energetic and gives a feeling of motion into the picture. Really nice!

I love the clothes that she wears. SO primitive, yet very elegant. I wonder from what animals she got those skulls. Mouses?

I love how you placed strong red and blue and weaker green and yellow in the work. The fire-dance looks very calm, but the movement of the bone-chants on her hips seems to be rapid and energic. You are one of the rare artists who understand that sky itself has countless of colors. Congrates of finishing this work, I faved it.

Absolutely beautiful, dangerous and fascinating. Part of me wants to ask her what spell she might be casting, part of me is telling me I should probably not bother and just run. I love her pose, in mid dance or about to kick-ass, or both...The clothing/ritual costume is sweet. Fantastic all around!
