Poinsettia by Mysteltain08 Poinsettia by Mysteltain08
"If you hope too much on seeing actual reindeers, you might turn into one." Something I heard a few years ago when some old man was talking to his grandchild. Old people say a lot of weird things. Might as well shut up.

Last year's work which I decided to color yesterday.
Merry Christmas.

Thehe, I just painted a girl who is adorned with poinsettia/is the flower herself, with the same title. Great job with this pic, I love the contrast between the light white-ish hues and the red. :D

Hahah what an interesting thing to say xD

Looks awesome! Beautiful shading on the skin, and I love the pose :D

btw I think making the poinsettia the brightest thing was a good call. If you made the garment the same red it would have distracted way too much xD Since it's so large it would've dragged my eyes away to the bottom of the picture, which is kind of a weird place for them to go xDDD Perhaps for more emphasis you could've used colder colors on the rest of the picture, but I really like the colors as they are now

Really? I find it really weird. ((:
Thank you very much, Sarsha!

I think so too, the purpose/plan was to set a focal point. And yes, the bottom is a weird place to set eyes on since first, it's not the subject of the piece, and second, it's near her butt LOL. And yes, a little mistake, but I guess it still turned out pretty well? And thanks, glad you like them. :>

Merry Christmas!

Well, near the butt isn't always a bad place to be looking.... :iconawesomefaceplz:

Although it's last year's I think it is gorgeous. Especially the poinsettia.
I think you could have colored the garment with same red as the poinsettia, though. It would have made the flower jump out even more.

Anatomy, everything's too elongated, looks strange yet it didn't turn out bad.
I really like to emphasize the poinsettia, that's why it's in a brighter color. Haha. But thanks for the advice, you idea wasn't bad as well. Could've tested. xD

Looks realistic enough to me.
Yeah, I thought as much. Just tried to give a good comment with something interesting to read.
