twilight shimmer by twosilverstars twilight shimmer by twosilverstars
:bulletblue: prints available


Hmmm, yes, it is a bit sparkly isn't it? Well, i can't help myself...i love sparklies :plotting:

Anyway, i have received (very polite) critiques in the past that my fabric tends to not look as realistic as the rest of the painting, and i agree. So with this piece i really tried to take the fabric to the next level. It isn't perfect, but i think i learned quite a bit and improved from previous paintings. Of course i used tons of reference. It is amazing what your eye will begin to see when you look at the real thing for long enough.

Speaking of reference. I would like to thank the always incredibly beautiful *Lisajen-stock and ~Nell-Stock for being such fantastic models and inspiration.

So thanks for viewing, and thanks for past feedback. I can not grow as an artist without it :hug:

Yeah, I reported them once already and they re-submitted when dA removed it. I reported this new one earlier, just waiting on dA now. Thanks for pointing people to my gallery, I appreciate it :hug:

Your welcome. You deserve those favorites, not the thief. I've been redirecting people on all of her pieces, credit should be given to those that did the actual work.
Speaking of work, your fairy is beautiful!

This is amazing, the proportions are fantastic, that's where i muck up. And the material looks like real material, you can see the textures and different colours that make up the end colour. Especially where the light hits it and it's shimmering.
