The Magic Essence of Winter by StinaWiik The Magic Essence of Winter by StinaWiik
This is a reposted work, therfore I'd really like to thank you all who already made comments on this piece!
I try to get things right to make some of my work available for print, seems like a had to delete the previous version to make this work(?) I'm sure I'll figure it out. I might have miss something in the faq.

About the picture. I was inspired to make this when I saw a beautiful crystal bulb in a shop-window...

Made in Painter, Photoshop

Beautiful! The detail in her clothes and crown are great, and I really like her hair, it almost seems to be frozen.

*blinks* It reminds me of a poem I wrote once, about the Icemaiden, the empress of ice and bringer of winter, something like that. Love it.

I thought this was a lovely vector piece but I'm even more happy to see that it's a lovely digital painting! :) Love the blues - always a favorite color of mine - and the cool feeling she exudes with the whites and chilly blues surrounding her. Her hair is so Art Nouveau-ish, the gown so medieval (with the exquisitely designed tiara) , and her face is majestically beautiful. The snow globe in her hand is nicely done, and this can be a bookplate or cover for any fantasy novel. :)

Grand, is the word.

Congrats on the DD! very much deserved! This is one beautiful piece, amazing attention to detail and i love the color scheme, one thing though, you should consider removing the black outline of the crystal, it kind of takes away from it...when you want to repost a new version of an existing deviation, just use the edit button and resubmit, you don't need to delete ;) Now I'm off to check out the rest of your gallery!

I like how you used different shades of blue. And yeah, her hand looks like it's somewhat too big, but all in all it's pretty. Instant :+fav:

Wow, when the "Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe" movie comes out, I hope Jadis the White Witch looks a lot like this; she is an intriguing character. I love the cold, haughty look on her face; it is very appropriate for a representation of winter. But the longer I stare at this, the more I think her hand is too large......it's bothering me. What do you think?
