I love your stuff so much!! I am so happy I found you on DA! :hug: I have a couple bucks, so I will have to run over to your print page and see if I can afford a small one or something for my daughter!

btw, do you have any art books out...you know, of just your artwork? I would love to have one...and if you do have one, I will have to save up for it!

Hello :) I might have some smaller stuff on etsy [link]

Nope, no books of just me yet. I'm working on a how to book and that will have about 12 new pics in it. I'd love to do a book in the future. There's just no time yet :(

:excited: woohoo!!! ^^ A how-to book sounds sooo awesome! Alot of the tutorials here on DA are crap and not very helpful and after wading thru tons of this, you don't want to look anymore for those few good ones. And it's the same with books now too! There are so many how-to draw books out there, it's such a pain trying to wade thru them to find the really good ones. But since you are a pro and have been at it a while, I know it will be awesome and even if I end up never using it, I would still love to have it to look at! :XD: Good how-to books on art are wonderful juat by themselves if done right. :XD:

I have that song :) but I'm not sure whether I was thinking of that at all or if I just drew the picture first and needed a name.

The lighting and atmosphere work well together :nod: Despite the tranquility of the scene, it makes me feel as if it is a very chilly evening.

Very good! specially because its a watercolor paint and not a digital one. I really love the designing: her hair and dress are just perfectly fits an angel.
the hall paint have an deviant and flowing atmosphere, beautiful.

To be honest, her wings seem a little too small to actually allow for flight. Still, it's a nice image. I'm partial to angels. ^^

How exquisite!! I love the how you blended the color with the watercolors! It is so soft and subtle, very gentle looking!! I especially like how her dress swirls around her - it lends to the youth and innocence of the angel figure. :aww:

How beautiful! I love the detail you put in this. The angel, with her lovely wings, hair and dress, really stands out from the background, without seeming apart from it. Wonderful job!

It's lovely. I like the way youdid the rocks, they look soft but hard at the same time. If that makes sense.

You're publishing a book? Put me on the pre order list!
