I see this as a kind of R-rated "Snow White and the Seven (OK, six - I may not want to know where the seventh one is) Dwarves" fantasy - and I LIKE it!

Reminds me a bit of Snow White and the seven dwarfs. Except there are only six of the green ones. Perhaps the blond is the seventh? Good watercolors are always so impressive. Not just technique but medium. *love*

WOW! She's painted so beautifully! Her hair and skin just seem to glow but you prevent the picture from being sickeningly perfect with the presence of the goblins! It's wonderfully balanced.

This is so lovely! I think the colour scheme is very well chosen, slightly eerie too. Reminds me of those bugs that glow in the dark, hehe.

It also makes me think Labyrinth. No idea why...

Very nice picture. The image has a light feeling in it even if there are some darker tones. The girl is done very nice and she really shines :) The little goblins are quite funky characters there too. :thumbsup:

Amazing! :lol: Did you use a model or reference photo? I've got loads of trouble drawing people and I was wondering how on earth you experts do it! Got any tips for a novice human-artist like me? ;)

Actually this one had no reference photo, which is why it is less realistic than some of my other works. But the best tip is, if you use reference photos enough and really learn the human form from them, then when there isn't a photo around you can still get a fair bit right just by memory :)

Thank you for the advice! :) I've been trying my very hardest to draw people....but it's just so hard! I use loads of reference photos....the grid thing and all that, but I can't seem to get my drawings to look like the photos! :O

LOL. I've got a dozen books on drawing people on hold at my local library...I'll probably go pick them up today and get started on it! :D I know I won't get anywhere as good as YOU are.....but I'd like very much to be at least moderately proficient. ;) Guess I should get started right now, huh? :lol:

Thanks again!
