The Ice Faerie's Breath by AngelaSasser The Ice Faerie's Breath by AngelaSasser
Signed Prints :pointr: [link]
It is a bad day indeed when the Lady of Winter brings the early frost. Her breath is the hardened dew. Her hair is the trees bald and black from cold and her kiss brings a frozen peace.

Hail to the Lady of Winter, for her beauty chills the warmest seasons.


After being surrounded by such great painters as :iconwindfalcon: and :iconzephyri: during the days before Dragon Con, I was inspired to try my hand at watercolors again after many years away from the medium. I'm happy to see I haven't lost it completely. I must also say that the animation of the Firebird suite from Fantasia 2000 also played a big part in this. It's absolutely gorgeous imagery. See it if you haven't!

11"x14", Cake Watercolors on Bristol Paper (not recommended as the paper buckles slightly).

Lady of Winter by *ladydove7 is a magnificent painting, with rich colours and an amazing setting. It makes me crave a fresh snowfall. Be sure to check out this amazing prints gallery for the upcoming gift giving season! ( Featured by Marker-Guru )

Mine didn't for a long while. It takes quite a bit of practice to get to this point and I still don't consider myself a master of the medium.

The pose and some of the detail like the hair and hands reminds me of the game Parasite Eve.

I loove that game. I can definitely see the resemblance to Eve (particularly after Melissa's first transformation) and wouldn't be surprised if she were floating around my subconscious too.

Simply breathtaking. The only thing that throws me is her lack of right arm? Most likely it's just the angle we see her from, but seeing a glimpse of the other leg makes her armlessness more noticeable.

Regardless, t'is a beautimous image and definitely kickasstic!

You know..I noticed that too after I had already finished it and it bothers me as well. I'm going to chock it up to the fact that her arm is hidden by her cloak or...something of that nature. Mostly it's the shadow on her hands that make her thumb appear on the wrong side that I need to fix. Ah so many little things I can't believe I missed!
