The colors play beautifully against each other. The cloth over the steps looks fantastic. I particularly enjoy the depth created by the shadowed bird silhouettes.

Thanks bro! This is actually one of my favorites--plus it's Claire from my princess story that I was telling you about!

I don't think I've ever commented on this and I thought I had:
I adore the character and the dress, the colors and elegance here is absolutely fantastic and inspirational- she looks as though she has just left a ball. Very inspirational and straight from a fairy tale! Beautiful work! :iconkokorox:

Thanks a ton! She's the main character in a graphic novel I am writing/drawing! However, I'm working on several other projects at the moment, so sometimes this one gets pushed back.

Yes, it's the symbol for the kingdom and I purposely made it into a tear shape.

This is such an awesome work! I love the dress, and the colors you used! I also love the eerie feel of the piece with the ravens and the spooky staircase. It has a "haunted castle" feeling too it. I adore such pieces!!! Fantastic and beautiful!!

How do you get your watercolor to come out so vibrent?

jbrenthill Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Thanks! Part of it is the paint I used (Daniel Smith watercolors), and part is layering enough to make it vibrant--but not so much that it gets too muddy!
