This is more or less a full painting of an idea I had a while back ([link]). I don't have that much of a commentary on this one; just a painting that I actually finished. I had tons of fun drawing those clouds, and reflections are really annoying (Thanks, *Walter-NEST for help on that umbrella). This may be updated at a later time, as I was hoping to put more details in here and there, like lanterns floating on the water, but I feel that if I do so, I'll never actually upload it. Drawing clouds is fun. :D

Critique please.

nice one, i like the contrast between the blury landscape and the sharp lines the girl and the umbrella are made of. just like waking up in a dream

Looks awesome. For reflections though, especially around the girl, I'd suggest adding some ripples around her legs and umbrella, or some sort of still distortion. It looks a little too homogeneous with the rest of her.

Other than that... :OOOOO

I really like this piece, especially the reflection.
I love how vast the background seems, especially in comparison to the girl.

Its a really nice digital painting, those clouds are amazing. I would really have liked to see a more distinction in the reflection from the sky, even if it was just making it slightly darker (the reflection in your sketch was pretty good, but pretty flat) If it is water that is reflecting (I don't know what else it would be) but it would be nice if it had a bit of texture to define it away from the sky and give the image a little more depth, even in placid days there are still ripples on the shores.

awesome!!
fave and watch!!

I think it would be better if there was more contrast between the reflection and the clouds so the horizon would be a bit clearer

just an opinion

Wow I didn't even know you finished this, it turned out beautiful! It looks like drawing clouds would be fun and you've done a great job of giving so much depth to them. My only critique would be that it the only thing that makes the water look like water is a darker tone... I would add some subtle ripples or just a sight bit of streak distortion to really make it believable.

I like this a lot, everything about it is awesome. If I look at it one way, I see the reflection, meanwhile if I look at it from a different perspective I see the light patch on the bottom as some sort of icy cliff that the girl is standing on looking out at the clouds. Good job :D
