The Golden Fairy´s Eye

I am really happy with this artwork. It´s as I had imagined, and I want to thank everyone who support me and give me strength to keep doing art.

After the amount of good comments on my previous work in this style I decided to make a new one, capable not as original as the previous but I think i improved the technique.

I hope you like it, and please make any comment if you really like it!
I am also grateful for those who give any :+fav: and / or :+devwatch:

Greetings and have good life.

Wow!

Can i first say that i love pictures of eyes. I think it's a bit of a shame that absolutely everybody else does too. What i mean is it's been done to death now, unfortunately.

But that said, this is still a very good image, a standout from the pack. You can tell it's based of a real image, but there's nothing
real about it. It's so fantastical.
My favourite thing is the golden, firey (ember like) texture that ripples the skin. And the golden beads that layer it.

The pattern overlaying the eye is also very good. Very
space age and intriguing.

I can't really flaw this image, the only possible downside
is perhaps the whites on the right side are a bit overpowering?
But besides that it's a lovely piece of photo-manipulation.
What do you think?

First, the eye color itself is what caught my eyes first to become attracted to this beautiful piece.
Secondly, the gems around the eye are amazing and I couldn't think of any better spot to have placed them in. Such detail with the patterns/textures and it seems you used a LOT of time on this.

When I looked at it more, I thought it had an African or exotic feel to it. The colors match perfectly, which is why it looks exotic since it's something people usually wouldn't wear in public unless it's their culture or for another reason and it's just..strange yet poppy.

It shows culture, style, no limits, beauty, and a bit of a feisty feeling. I've never seen anything similar to this at all. The way you made the skin and decorations a night-desert kind of tone and just the eye color itself giving a high-tech crystal tomb scene of all it's own is AMAZING, couldn't be put together in any better way.
The background isn't just a plain white, it shines, giving more attention and focus onto the eye and decorations.

Eyelashes and skin now look like fabric sewn onto a human's head and then taken a picture of. So real. Then the eye, another reason why it popped at me the most, is so shiny and clear, bright and smooth. Very detailed, graphic, clear and different.
My emotions yelled at me to view this magnificent piece. It took me a while to finally decide, though I kept glancing at it every second.


Again, a very amazing, well-put-together piece of many emotions! I honestly can't find a downside to this at all. Maybe at the top right corner where it shows some of the skin, but the bright side on that is it makes the whole design look like a mask. So I don't think that would be a "flaw".....Very flawless:heart:

I just love the ladybug detail. This image definitely proves that you have a great amount of skill. Every piece falls so smoothly into the next one to create a wonderful result. It looks like a photo of the eye of an Egyptian goddess. You have a very good taste in stock i must say.
Bravo!
