Ice Wind 1 by peachysticks Ice Wind 1 by peachysticks
I've come back from the Dark Side! :D

Anyway, first, sorry about the rather uninspired title; this is a cover for a new novel series by Hotupub, this is cover no. 1 so yeah. The girl is the love interest of the main character. She has long hair, other wise, I had a lot of freedom with her look, only thing is I have to make her really pretty. I think I got it so I am happy.

All painted in PS, with some final texture work in Painter.

This is really beautiful. The lady looks gorgeous, and her white dress very angelic - I really like the silver shimmery parts on it. And the environment you've created is also really lovely with the grass, flowers, and tranquil blue sky. The lighting is also quite delightful. This is an extremely elegant piece. Well done! :clap:

This is amazing. I love her clear blue eyes and her flowing blond hair. Too bad people in real life can't look that beautiful. And again, great job.

Beautiful image. You succeeded quite well at making the woman very lovely, and I absolutely love the delicate design of her dress. It's simple, yet elegant, has great detailing, and the little overlay that is flowing in the wind is excellent. :)
