The Arrival by Ashley-Q The Arrival by Ashley-Q
MEDIUM: Corel Painter 8
LAST UPDATE: 9.29.09

Tried to give on those speed painting things a shot, but I did this in about 2 hours. Not sure that really counts.

It kind of gives me a sci-fi feel, like there's a UFO about to land near her, hence the title. Referenced a picture of the gorgeous BerlinElliott.

I'm not quite sure how to put this so I'll just say it. This is without doubt the most captivating work I have seen in such a long time. The lustrous beauty of the subject combined with the impeccable pose makes for a truly stunning composition. The colours are bright and vivid and draw you in to the picture, with such elegance and detail it creates a breathtaking work of art that conveys your extensive skills, everything from the lustre of the eyes and boisterous lipstick to the infinite details of the hair coloured a startling purple, this is a captivating piece and shows a magnanimous skill in it's portrayal here as sheer beauty.

I have never worked with Corel Painter 8 or anything of that medium before, so , i'm not sure if anything i say here would help any.

But,i'll try.. Here goes nothing . .

First, the fact that this was done in 2 hours , as you stated , is amazing. I can't even complete a traditional painting in 2 hours or under. And for something of this tremendous quality to be completed in that short amount of time is amazing.

Second, I think that the model that was used as the reference picture would be happy with the result of this piece. Its an excellent piece.

Third, The composition is real good. The beauty of the model and the great pose makes for an amazing composition in of itself. I like how its zoomed in our her face and cuts off shortly below the shoulders, and how it only cuts off a little bit of the top of her head.

Fourth, the hair is also amazing. I like how their are lighter and darker shades of purple and white mixed in to show strands of her hair. This attention to detail adds a very nice touch. The attention to detail on her eye, the reflection in the bottom corner , is nice too. And her lips. Impressive as well.

Lastly, the background color works well. Does not detract from the subject. And the title works well too. Fits the piece.

All in all, a wonderful piece!
