Oh this is beautiful. Being a digital art fan myself, I must say a lot of effort must have gone into this. THe coloring is great and I love the way how the background is smooth but the character is more in focus, giving her a sharper look. :-) I also like the way you have silhouetted the trees that gives it that surreal look. This piece is simply great, though personally, I would like my girl to be more feminine and exotic. For that, I guess the face would be more feminine and the eyes would have to be given a little more depth. 

But other than that I truly love ur piece and hope to see many more. :-)

Wow, this is stunning!
The coloring is amazing. I especially think you did a great job at the pirate's face. I have the impression she is really strong, but also lonely and longing for someone or something. Personally, I would prefer slightly more defined edges on her hat, though - her skin and clothing is done like that and the background is more blended so for me, sharper edges would be perfect. :)

The colors and details in this piece are breathtaking! I especially love the water and the sky. The woman is also quite beautiful, too.

The soft colors and shapes gives this a very calm and solemn mood, and compliments your figure's expression.

Very good work!

wirklich tolle arbeit!. mir gefällt deine palette sehr und man sieht dass du sehr viel liebe in den hintergrund gesteckt hast! die schon geradezu kosmisch wirkenden wolken geben dem bild das verträumte etwas. die kette deiner piratin ist wunderschön ausgearbeitet. vielleicht sogar ein bissel zu schön hehe sie zieht den fokus zum glück nicht allzusehr ab von dem sinnlichem gesicht deiner lady =D

Wow, amazing effects and colours and textures. :heart:

I would like some more detailing on the hat though :o Because I love hats, and this one looks a bit to simple to be an awesome hat. But that's just my taste. :)

Awesome piece anyway. <3 :+fav:
