An Apple's Guardian by darklyartistic An Apple's Guardian by darklyartistic
(Apple story contd) As the forest sisters reached thier cottage gently giggling as they entered they rushed to the table. They placed the apple gently upon the table and began to stare at it steadily. "Ha, I knew it! This apple contains a prophecy." Being that the weird sisters pride themselves of thier inner eye they grabbed the apple and rushed out the door, where a tall tower stood by the cottage. Chained to the top of the tower stood what appeared to be an angel, but of course this was no angel since angels are earth bound, this was a magnificent creature called a Linneseal, they are known to be great Oracles, but they very rarely let there secrets our. So the forest sisters had kept this creature in hopes of one day providing them wisdom. The wierd sister yanked on the chain of the Linneseal as it flew down to them. They shoved the apple into the Linneseal's hand."You will watch over this and reveal it's prhophecy" said the sisters coldly, as they yanked the chain once more throwning the Linneseal upon the ground. So now there stands the Linneseal upon her stand, chained but now with company of the apple.

Lol, ummmm yeh I got carried away....lol.

Well this was for the feature me contest. BUt I needed a print right away for my final so I had to submit it so now i will probably be disqualified not like I would have won anyway, and I guess I dont need more recognition, it was probably shallow for me to enter anyway. Also I emailed the judges to ask them if I could submit the picture since I had already emailed the picture in, and of course I have had no reply, so oh well:(. But I really hope you all like it. OH and Happy Turkey Day!

DO you know this reminds me of pictures by michael parkes
eg: [link]
(i said reminds me just, like the pose, placement, body type, wind, etc)
oh. i think you may have been a little too "pert" on her breast there (lol, looks like she would poke her eye out if she looked down ... ;))
anyways, i am not being judgemental as I cannot paint (sigh)

This is so pretty. the detailing on the dress and the chain and the wings if great, but the long windblown bits of hair look a little unfinished to me. Myght be just me. i dunno.

Still gorgeous work :P

OMG... she's just brilliant! I adore the story of the apple... It's really quite amazing the work you've put into them, and they all look so great!

Now on to what I love in this pic... The wings are great, cause they're... I dunno... not really angel like, not fairy like, just like a part of her, that's grown very tired... The dress is beautiful of course... I love her face... And I love how you can almost feel the wind blowing... very cool!!! Great work!

Fav, like duh! I always fav!
