Snow Queen portrait by RozennIlliano Snow Queen portrait by RozennIlliano
Yeah, again a snowy painting ! I am just *a little* obsessed about winter. Here is the Snow Queen.

The earrings are handmade, you can find it on my (french) shop : [link]

The model is the beautiful ~Reine-Haru (I made yet a painting of her, again as the Snow Queen : [link])

Photoshop CS5 & Intuos 4

You're one of my favourite portrait painter here on DA and I must say that I always envy you for your beautiful colour schemes and how great you are able to paint hair!

The portrait looks absolutely lovely. The only think I would post as a critique is how the tiara looks a bit flat compared to the other elements in the painting. I would have wanted it to pop just like the earring. But other than that it is close to perfection! :)

The facial part and the earring is the best feature of this paintings, I think. It looks so smooth, but yet it has a lot of character and a very nice expression. She looks just like I imagine an ice queen.

You're really talented and I think that you will

This piece is stunning. The face overall is amazing work but especially the eyes. The ear is also amazing as well.

My only real critique is about the varying level of focus/sharpness throughout the photo. The earring pops so much more than everything else. I didn't think of it at first myself but after reading another critique the suggestion to make the tiara pop a bit more could possibly work.

Also, the hair beside the face and above the ear is so detailed while the rest of her hair is more blurred. The hair on the neck is more crisp as well and between the hair, the ear and the earring, is really makes that area the focal point of the piece, but I don't know if that was intended? If so, bravo, otherwise just sharpening the details on the tiara and hair would help, also the neck seems to fade a bit too high up.

Really though, I'm only critiquing it because you asked. Complaints certainly weren't my initial reaction. I would cut off my left hand to be able to draw like this with my right, just stunning work.

Really beautifull!!!

If she is a Snow Queen, why so many floral motives in her jevelry?
