I don't think you failed this one. Looks too awesome for a failed attempt. o.o I really like this design though. :)

Is anybody else getting a Midna vibe from the picture?

I wouldn't say horror.. but dark, surreal, and wickedly beautiful. I have seen this image a LOT when searching google for fantasy elven images.. I am so glad that I found the one who painted this. You are a freaking master of your craft. Would you be okay with me trying to use this image for practice? She is already my desktop wallpaper. ^^

Very impressive! I like the contrast of her dark/horror/grim clothing design with her almost childlike face and longing (could easily be something else, but that's what it looked like to me) expression. Nicely done; very intriguing. Makes you wonder where she came from and what her story is...

Damn.....the use of color is amazing.
woodgolem72 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015
What type of headpiece is that?
Colanah Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's gorgeous though it's her expression of concern/worry more than confident wickedness that might keep it just shy of 'horror'.   Unless she's horrified by something only she can see,  because at that point...Nailed it!

Really nice

Beautiful work! Looks awesome!

This piece is so exquisite and professional. I would not be the least bit surprised if Tactical Studies Rules, Inc. or Blizzard were to hire you.
ShadowKaiserin Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014
She looks like she could be the daughter of Ganondorf and Midna. And now I have a horrible scene playing out in my head. Yeah, horror definitely covers it.
darth-the-kitty Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Makes me think of Midna

"my failed attempt.." Oh please hon, this is beautiful. I absolutely love it. Give yourself a tad more credit. <3~
DarkPhlame412 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014
Hey, you got extreme beauty out of the attempt; I'd call this a win, not a failure!
VelvetWingz Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I've loved it for quite a while now >3< SO YOU DID DIS. GO YOU! :XD: :heart:

Celestia912 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a beautiful piece of artwork, the dress is stunning. :) The girl seems like a character that would have a very amazing story, and her expression speaks volumes. Fantastic. It is a picture that I could easily build a story around, which is always something great. Keep up the amazing work, and this is by no means a fail! :)
Tiger33 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014

Telelia Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Every time I come to this piece of art--- it makes me want the dress. Like straight up the design for it XD [would pay for a dress design similar to this]
Maehedrose Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014
I really like this picture; I love how beautifully you captured the coloration of the skin and that armor has a wonderful mix of fantasy trope "skin armor" while at the same time not giving away too much. (at least, not from this angle)  I can only imagine how difficult it is for her to get her hair to do that, however; I hope she has some form of magical servant to help.
Margali53 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2014
Very nice.
R-k-9 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
She looks like a hothothot female gannondorf  XD

that's exactly what I was thinking
casiopeja Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
When I looked at her the Planescape Torment popped into my front... ;) In a way this lady in "pain" fits next to The Nameless One
OfGermanBlood Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014  Student Photographer
I don't think this failed at all! It's really stunning.

This is so gorgeous.
Hikari-no-Tamashi Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2014
As awesome as this is, it's borderline to a genderbender of Ganondorf from any of the Zelda games that feature him. Amazing work!
firestar541 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not a fail. It's beautiful. It's kind of a dying Autumn thing.
