Congratulations on your win. This is a very endearing picture with such great talent behind it. I love the glow on her face as she gets ready to blow the snow. Excellent in all regards.

Comment from Mary Christman


wow this is just stunning. the young woman is just gorgous. she really adds to the beauty of this creative piece of art.
her blue eyes just bounce off the snow and shine.
the background adds a lot of character also.
great job.

I love the scene. This is so well-conceptualized. The details are superb. I enjoy how you've diligently created this digitally. It looks so real, like an ordinary photograph.

    Thanks so much for the nice review. This is digital art but also uses stock photography which is then manipulated with filters, ec.

    Both the photograph and the digital aspects are superb. Great job.

A very nice story telling piece. Photo or digital art? A totally blurred line. I do think the image could do with a bit of cropping at the top. All that bare sky seems out of balance and draws attention away from that lovely line of trees on the left. Otherwise, beautiful!

    Digital art, but the one that uses stock photography and digital combined. . It is altered with filters, etc. Thanks for the suggestion of cropping the top. I think you may be right. Appreciate it.

She seems in a magical winter world. The landscape behind her is beautiful. It seems that cold and snow do not bother her. She looks like a queen of winter-wonderland or the ice-maiden accompanying grandfather frost.
I like your composition very much. The tall framing is adequate. The playful woman is well placed into frame. The composition is balanced. The limited colors amplify the winter season. The reddish-blond hair is and her blue eyes are an exquisite contradiction to the winter-world behind and very intriguing.

Superb clarity!
An interesting initial impact.
Impressive mixed media rendition.

Excellent colors & textures. Interesting modification.

Great lighting & framing but can we crop a bit from the top?

Thanks for sharing!

Wow Julie! This has got to be one of the better digital works I have seen here on FAR. It is so lifelike and the details are extrordinary. I love the pastel colors used which make her hair and eyes really stand out. Great work Julie ~ Steve

Just one thought: I see you used the FAR Watermark. It is in the bottom right of the picture. To me it is a distraction from your Fabulous work. I Never use the FAR Watermark as it is not necessary. Our works are Automatically copy righted when we post a work. OR if you really want to make sure, you can still go to the copyright button and do it there. So no need for the watermark to distract from our works. Just a thought ~ Steve

    Thanks for letting me know about the watermark. I haven't been on Fan Art for awhile and figured it was mandatory to choose one. Glad you liked it.

I like this digital work because it is so classical in its concept and execution and in its atmosphere; The light, colour and the composition have worked well. Thanks for sharing!
