IF: Shiny

This was not terribly successful and I got bored of painting it, but it took so long to paint I've uploaded it anyway...


  1. I love it just the way it is. It makes me think of a princess who--although the image of a princess is something we all think of as someone who must be perfect in every--way is looking or seeking something, thinking deeply without giving away her weaknesses. I'd like to believe that this expresses the idea that whether we are "princess perfect" or not we are all an unfinished masterpiece. We evolve, we learn, we grow, we hopefully improve. I love the color in this and the large eyes and the jet black hair. However did you manage to get the crown to actually appear as if it is shimmering? I love it! AT first glance thought of snow white. Then I thought of the Snow Queen (her daughter possibly)because of all the blues and whites you used in it.

    1. Thank you for the lovely lovely comment!

  2. What a lovely princess!! I really like her eyes. She looks a little like snow white and some Ice princess. :)
