Wow, I'm on a roll lately :O_o:
Actually, this was a super-inspired-must-paint-right-now-painting. I stumbled over the beautiful gallery of *miobi, and saw a photograph that instantly inspired me, so I had to sit down and paint this. It's been a kind of new experience for me, because it's not a portrait, and it's not my usual style either.
But it was fun :) I think I'm going to explore this further and stop painting only portraits, it's time for me to do some full-body works and think of cool concepts as well!

Feedback is very much apprechiated, as always :)

Time: ~3 hours

The vibrant colours are gorgeous in this! It's almost like the sun's rays behind the girl (even though some of the 'rays' are pink!), and I love all the different patterns and doodles/drawings there. The flowing hair is also really nicely done. :)

Also, I have just noticed this, but is that the jellyfish (from your old icon, and also the deviation in your Gallery)? It has a heart in the centre, which is really nice, but I have just noticed the jellyfish-type shape and the subtly-drawn tentacles! :giggle:

Thanks a lot! :hug:

Yes, it is. :giggle: Back when I drew this I was on a jellyfish trip, what with it being a deviation and my icon. :lol: I think I'll go back to having a jellyfish icon one day, but only once I revise that old jellyverse painting - again ;)

Of course! :hug:

Haha, that makes sense! Ooh, that would be a third revision, right? That will look fantastic!

Jep, third revision. :giggle: And I want to have the revised version finished in September, since that's when the previous two were posted as well. :)
