:star: CALENDAR 2013 AVAILABLE HERE :star:

This is the page for DECEMBER

Guys!!! I've finished my calendaaaaar!!! :omfg:
I'm so done with it, at last! I thought I would never make it in time! So, as you may have guessed, this one is the page for December. It is definitelly not what I wanted to do in the first place, but unfortunatelly, I couldn't find any good model to illustrate my first idea. Anyway, some hours ago I found those 2 amazing pictures on dA and a new idea popped up. The title is inspired by a line from a song in the Narnia soundtrack called "Winter Light" and sung by Tim Finn (Isis, this is for you! :heart: :hug:) and I can also say that the whole thing is inspired by Narnia anyway (so sorry for bothering you with it again but I can't help it, I love it too much! :XD:).
Tomorrow I will upload the whole calendar with the front and back covers and the 12 manipulations I made especially for it.

Les geeeennns, j'ai fini mon calendrier!!! :omfg:
J'en ai vraiment fini avec lui, enfin! J'ai cru que j'allais jamais le finir à temps, lol. Donc, je pense que vous l'avez deviné, cette page est le mois de Décembre. C'est pas du tout l'idée que j'avais à la base, mais malheureusement, j'ai pas trouvé le modèle idéale pour ma première idée. Bref, il y a quelques heures j'ai trouvé ces deux photos superbes et une nouvelle idée a surgi. Le titre est inspiré par une chanson de la BO de Narnia qui s'appelle "Winter Light" et qui est chantée par Tim Finn (Isis, c'est pour toi! :heart: :hug:) et je peux aussi dire que cette manip est inspirée par Narnia de toutes façons (désolée de vous ennuyer avec ça encore une fois mais j'y peux rien, j'aime trop! :XD:).
Demain j'uploaderai le calendrier tout entier avec couverture recto/verso et les douze manips faites exprès pour ce calendrier.

In one word stunning. You've created visual appeal with a beautiful use of contrast from the woman's skin to not only the dark clothes but the darker environment as well. A bright light in the corner forces us to question what this woman's gaze is so captured by. The strand of hair again leads the focus to the womans eyes, a deep, pure blue which suggests a calm, complacent tone evoking a wonderful emotional appeal, slightly suggestive of the nativity scene, it reminds us of that silent night, when a star in the sky signified a new king.
Well Done!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
12 out of 12 deviants thought this was fair.

First I want to say that I love this work. I can see a lot of improvement in the painting department and can tell you've spent a lot of time getting it to look this good. For the most part I like how this turned out.
The only thing that I would have probably done differently is maybe blurred a bit or put a soft, 30-40% opacity paint layer over the coat. In parts, like the collar and hood, you can see the photo-realistic texture of the fabric that it contrasts to an overall painted work.
But overall I think you've outdone yourself with this one :clap:
