When I started painting this, I was willing to go all around the world for it.

Now that I am finished, I want to shoot it in the face.

descendant of a kraken/human, tentacle!monster/human or mer/human pairing?
lauraorganasolo Featured By Owner May 9, 2012
Everything about this amazing. The rococo grandeur of the dress and... hair, the detail on all the scales -- actually all the details, really -- the coy expression and makeup. Really amazing.

The washed out colors are wonderful. . .the fog effect gives it a sense of time. . .Are those those Peonies? If so, wonderful transition between the Victorian and the Chinese dragon. All in all amazing composition. . .

Why would you wanna shoot it in the face? If I were you I'd be staring at it for eternity and admiring it because... IT'S JUST SO AWESOME!

CupcakeAshley Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010
The painting is beyond beautiful and whimsical (which over five pages of comments can attest to) but I wanted to say lol at "When I started painting this, I was willing to go all around the world for it. Now that I am finished, I want to shoot it in the face." That is so effin funny AND true :lmao:

I think you did a fantastic job with it!
SilverWolfDimitrix Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't stop looking at it! It's gorgeous! Although I can definitely tell there was oodles of time and effort taken to make it; I can see why you'd want to shoot it! :D
Lovely picture!

Dire-Wolf0 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2009
You really traveled around the world to complete this? That is actually really amazing, i like this picture in fact all of your art. Art is great in some many ways how one can imagine up things like this. Behind every portrait lies a story.
luciole Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Its just a figure of speech :). But thank you.
Dire-Wolf0 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009
Oh ok lol i have a little problem take things a little to literal lol.
temiel Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2009  Professional General Artist
I'm WAY too familiar with that feeling ("SHOOT IT IN THE FACE!"). Of all the pieces in your gallery, I think this one is my favorite because of the really subtle and toned-down color. You're an incredible digital painter, but this one just really strikes my fancy :)
seraphine Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter

Such a magnificently opulent piece. I love the earthy colours matched with her costume... makes me think of lace and silk worn thin by time and dust
Alalein Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009  Student General Artist
OMG!!! I really looooooooove it! the details are perfect and the style is just awesome!!! I really think I haven´t seen such a good art for very long now!! It simply facinates me and I just can say how much I love it!!!! :heart:
So, really that´s an awesome piece ^^
dolldivine Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009  Professional General Artist
Your description made me lol.

This reminds me of the starbucks logo, before it was de-scandalized (i'm slow.. i thought there were two tails). If your teacher didn't like it she must have some serious issues deep inside.

"art and boozing" :thumbsup:

you're welcome :)

I almost like the commentary better than the piece.

All creative people are doomed to perfect their work only to be sick of it by the time they deem it worthy of public consumption. The selfless angels.
luciole Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
I know, I'm surprise at how many feel the same :) At least I know now that I'm not suffering alone..
autumnbrat Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2008  Student Filmographer
I love the East meets West concept : )
luciole Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2008  Professional Digital Artist

Lilithia Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2008
This is very different. I would've never guessed it was drawn by you. But it's awesome. XD

She's a dragon, right?
