The Secret Garden  by FrostAlexis The Secret Garden  by FrostAlexis
I finished this one last year. I didn't think it was very good, but now I actually like it ^^
Art tip of the day: If your artwork is bad just leave it alone for a bit. Your future self may like it!

Ugh! Finding all the stocks I used for this is a nightmare! Sorry if I've missed any...

Nice work Alexis :clap:. I Love the way you did her hair, lips and especially
her eyes. For me I am deeply captured by those features. Speaking of hair
did you use the smudge tool to get the hair to look that way?
I like the details in the keyhole on her shoulder but I personally think it is really
big and takes away from the beautiful art you've done here. Sorry hun, please
don't bite my head off for saying that. /me runs and hides...
You're still my favorite artist though .◠‿◠.

Yay! Thanks so much :la:
I tried really hard on the eyes and makeup because the model's face... er... needed a little help? Hehe Anyway, the paintwork turned out nice enough but I spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long on it, lol The hair I just ran through a paint filter. Smudging never works for me. Like not with any thing, hair, skin... Other artist can make smudging work but not me. Maybe I just need to watch the right tutorial, hm.

But yeah, it's funny about the keyhole garden, because originally that was my whole inspiration for this artwork. Hence the Secret Garden, right? But it kinda got away from that during the whole process, and by the end it became kind of a problem, so I just finished it off in a hurry. Maybe it's partly the reason I wasn't entirely satisfied with this last year.

Haha, no I don't bite dear! :giggle: I actually think it's kind of funny that you sniffed out directly what was my main problem with this artwork. I'm telling you, you got a knack for this kind of thing.

You are most welcome c:.
I never doubted you would always try to do your best with anything you create. BUT, lol about what you said.
Not so nice but I still know what you mean lmao ;P. I honestly think the paint work came out amazing but
we both know I'm biased when it comes to you haha. Ah, I see, that's my personal tip for the day from you then
about the hair. I'll try it sometime. Yeah, I could never do the smudge thing it was too difficult for me to make work.
At least I know I'm not the only one that had problems with that technique.

I understand what you mean and sometimes things just don't work out the way we envision it. I could see how that
keyhole would work though c: to make it match the Secret Garden thing. But never the less to me it's still a great piece of art.

;P I don't know, you've hit me with a bat before and slapped me too lol. You are still a mystery to me. Haha, I just got lucky.
Also you should know by now I spend more time than most when looking at art. I just love trying to find the emotions and
story of what the artist is trying to show/tell.

Amazing and very original artist. Beautiful work on hair and skin. How you get this results on skin and hair. Do you use dodge and burn tool?

FrostAlexis Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it ^^
I can't remember the exact process I used because I made this last year, but I think I used a multiply layer to brush in some of that dark magenta onto her face and skin in the shadow areas.
I don't use dodge and burn too much. I find those tools mess up the consistency. Other artist can make them work, but I've never had much luck so I shade using other methods. 
I hope this helps ^^
