juriTanaka said: "This artwork is very sentimental, the face of the character express agony and sadness, and the bright and soft background get enphasis at her feelings."

When I saw this, in my head I heard "Lady Palutena" echo. Does this remind anyone else of Kid Icarus?

By the way, it looks great.

The background looks fine.

I think this is really nice. The way I see it, the lady in the picture is a spirit of nature, perhaps Gaia or Mother Earth, and she's sad about the destruction of her forest home. She and the butterflies are the only survivors of what happened (Fire? A storm? The result of humans' carelessness?). It reminds me of the Firebird sequence from Fantasia 2000.

The lady in the picture is the original character of the person I did the art trade with.
She died in the swamp, and because she is so lonely she drowns people to death just to have someone, even if it's only for a moment.
Or something like that, it was a while ago so I can't exactly remember.

This artwork is very amazing :D all details make this piece perfect, sentimental, and symbolical. The face of the character, her hair and clothing that fits very well at the scene, the soft and smooth background is really appropiate for this drawing. The butterflies (or moths) flying, the mysterious hand at the lake. You must to be proud of your art, especially of this piece.

Coming out of the water! With a branch reaching the same way! This is poetry worthy.
 Oh gosh, I love it. :love: And the butterflies in the backround...!
