The thumb of this illustration caught my attention immediately. There may be more complex works in your gallery, and all of your art is truly amazing, but there is something about this piece that draws me in. It looks so peaceful and fragile, so soft but a bit cold at the same time... and those brush strokes, oh my God.
Ahh.. I practically held my hands to my face when I saw this in progress, it was so fascinating seeing how you work on concepts from scratch, so I really appreciate you sharing progress gifs!
That lighting and those colours..
Your illustrative pieces keep stealing my attention for minutes, I find myself returning to stare at them a lot when browsing. The way you work with colours and add shapes into your pieces, it keeps the eyes wandering around and makes your brush strokes look so fluid. I can't get over the way you portrayed Syreniia, she looks so beautiful.. and this piece is rather gentle yet alluring.
Gosh, I hope to return again and again to commission you. Supporting artists by commissioning is something I find myself doing a lot, you're definitely one I intend to support when I can.
