The Night Bird's Song by wroth The Night Bird's Song by wroth
"... when our love was new, and our hearts were high.
When the day was young, and the nights were long,
and the moon stood still for the night bird's song."

Image Description:

Digital paint, Photoshop CS. In my opinion this is my first real painting, that is not just a study and not relying on photo textures etc.

Made the floral reference photographs myself, the model photo of ~VoodooBiatch used with her very generous permission. You can find some of her modeling stock in Beauty Package 2 at =resurgere, some of my floral stock is also available there.

You can view a step by step production walkthrough of this painting at my sketchbook, which is featured at Creativestem at the moment.

And you can view close up details snippets in my dA scrapbook along with a much more detailed description.

Full viewing is recommend to see the details as ever. Your critiques and feedback are always welcome and if you had painting advice for me that would help a lot. Thank you for looking and for your support!

I like it. I did notice that the flowers were a little more detailed than the girl's face. And the brightness of the girl and the flowers and green lights were all relatively the same. So I tossed it into Photo Shop and darkened the flowers a bit; it made the girl's face stand out much more.

Again; I like it. I just thought I would put forth my observation. If you wanted a particular part of the image to stand out more I can't say, but as it stands now, the flowers and the girl are equal as far as striking the eye...to me.

Best of luck, Blake.

The picture itself is gorgeous, with brilliant details. The idea is rather spooky. However, I do have one thing to comment on - apart from the other critique saying the flowers should be dimmed, the head, which seems to be the focal point of the picture, is quite small. The composition of the picture is a bit poor, and more emphasis could be applied not only by reducing the light from the flowers, but also by making the head bigger in relative comparison to the rest of the picture. Or you could consider making the flowers smaller - whatever works. Good job overall, but more attention in general needs to be drawn to the head, and with the current size, that will be hard to do. The first thing I noticed were the flowers up front.

Beautiful work, though! Gorgeous.
