Autumn's Sigh by vixelyn Autumn's Sigh by vixelyn
Autumn is still prevalent, and I find the onset of this particular season to be very nostalgic. New beginnings provoke thoughts of the past in what I feel to be its clearest, most memorable form.

I begin to recall things that were on the verge of oblivion, solely by placing myself in the familiar environment. Crisp, cool air lightly scratches at my skin, to be healed by the soft rays of a near winter sun. Brilliant hues within the death of nature are magnified, which become a victorian frame to my thoughts.

And as I peer into the paintings of my past, I collect a few pieces to my puzzle, yet they are still but shapes and colours ..

Painted entirely in photoshop .. thanks go to my model, Yelena! :boogie:

This is absolutely amazing. I love it. Thank you for sharing! I love how you proportioned everything as well with the leaves and how you didn't completely cover her wings. I love autumn time and I think you really captured the whole jumping into a pile of leaves feeling (though with a Faerie, I think that one wouldn't exactly jump into the leaves, but rather fly through them as they fall). Wonderful job.

That's a wonderful description of Autumn. The vividness is often what draws me in to saying that fall is my favourite season when asked. Your picture is also nice. lol! It's really old too!

Happy New Year!
