:iconbouquetplz: It's so beautiful, it looks like a fantasy surreal painting turned black and white. I'm amazed at the small lines used on her gown and sleeve and also the pillar structure. The clouds that look like her veil blowing in the wind are mesmerizing. Great job on incorporating the stairs as well. About how many hours did it take for you to do this? It's amazing you got all these details on an A4 paper size.

It's done after a stock image used as a reference...so it's not a vision...

I used the reference as a guide for the vision I had in my mind. It was the main inspiration for this artwork, I added my own touches with the clouds in the background and made some small modifications which is quite obvious...hope you got it :)

The textures are awesome. Great techniques. I'm still trying to figure out how you made each stroke of the dress so perfect.

Did you draw this from your imagination? If so, then that's pretty amazing! I especially love the hair and the mask. :aww:

Sikoian Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thanks for asking! I guess I should clear that up a bit. I used a reference photo for the model and then added a couple of things from my imagination like the clouds for instance. I remember from the time that I saw the model reference I envisioned the clouds and the main theme of the upcoming piece. I named it the secret and it's the vision that I had in my mind..

Thank a lot, I'm very glad you like them :love:
