Ice Maiden by dark-spider Ice Maiden by dark-spider
Finally I had time to do a christmas card this year :). A mid portrait again, since there was no time for anything more ^^.

So, happy new year 2009!!! I wish you a year full of inspiration, artworks and dreams come true ;).

As usual, it was done with photoshop. 10-15 hours. Full view, please :).

Hi! I'm new on Deviantart and I'm more of a writer then an artist. I was wondering if I could use something from this picture in a story? The stories more of an idea right now, but I thought I would ask :)
I really love this picture by the way! Wish I could draw like that :D

This is so, so beautiful. :) While my favorite parts simply have to be the eyes, tear, llace, and frost around the outside, the whole piece is just sensational. Very very nice work! :heart:

My only critique is that the ice of her hand looks...I'm not sure...too clear? Like glass. I would say to add a little bit of frostiness to it...but that's really just my guess. :) There's not a lot to pick out of this piece, you did incredibly well!

//Jealous of anatomy//--//Jealous of shading//--//Jealous of clothing//

^_^ Again, very, very nice work. :)
