a Girl and a Spider (lineart to color) by ChristmasSocks a Girl and a Spider (lineart to color) by ChristmasSocks
I haven't done one of these in awhile, I figure some people like to see them.  When I know I'm going to fully color over my line-art I tend to not bother drawing beyond the initial sketch, I can always elaborate the details while painting it.  Her hands were not originally planned into the picture, I added them later when I felt there needed to be some more intrigue to the picture.

thanks for viewing!

Is this painted digitally or traditionally? Either way you are extreamly tallented...... and just made the watch list.

The way you paint is so gorgeous. ;3; The contrast between high and low color saturation is beautiful here. I love her skin, and the details of the wood.

Someone's got a big mouth. I think her eyes were focused better on the spider in the first one, but I still like it! Very pretty

It's truly stunning and wonderful!! But if you don't mind me saying, as brilliant as the hand is, it doesn't really look like it belongs to her, or is it just me? But I love it anyway ^^

Her face and hands are so pretty.

It's like magic!!! So, beautiful. It's got the allure of the old masters' paintings. I like how you emphasised the red on the nose and palm. I can tell it's cold outside :D Truly amazing!!
