This is dedicated to all the people who feel frozen inside for a reason..
be it because they are deadly frightened about something or because the have lost someone loved...
Or whatever makes you feel not beeing able to think, to feel, sometimes even to move.
When you -even if you know you need to - cannot do anything else then feel paralysed...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I thought alot about if I should allow comments or not.. because I absolutely DONT WANT ANY CRITIQUE on this..
This is not a painting that was done for practice or to improve.. it was done to express a feeling.
Nothing more - nothing less.

I know some of you are in awe if not able to give your 2 cents critiquewise.. even if the artist dont want one but this time please be so polite.. stick it to yourself ok?

The technical side.. CS2 and Cintiq. No fancy brushes no references. All from scratch.

wow, this is so amazing! it's very touching..
it feels like something happened, and she is in a big shock, and something has just shattered inside of her.. and she is frozen...like someone left her behind..speechless but still want to say to stop someone..- this is what i feel from looking at this wonderful artwork
i'm so agree about what you meant to show.
everything : the face, the eyes, the ice, the colors and the background are very sensitive and gentle.. she has a soul..a beautiful soul..
I really love it, thank you!:)

Ah, ice & tears in her eyes ? From the thumbnail I actually took this more as innocently sensual, as though she was finally coming into her sexuality but was frightened of her feelings somewhat. A beautiful image, despite whatever feeling you were trying to convey or however I took it. :)

So beautiful. I feel as if she is looking at an ice mage version of Malkovich's Valmont, repeating over and over again "It is beyond my control."

A beautiful and extraordinarily evocative piece - I can practically feel its emotion leaping at me from my monitor.
A truly superb piece that goes far beyond just superficially looking good.
This has to be my favourite from your gallery :)

Ein unheimlich schöner Start ins Jahr. Ich kenn das Gefühl, leider. Aber ich kann mir gut vorstellen, dass es von diesem Bild auch irgendwann mal eine Version geben könnte, in der das Eis gerade wieder auftaut.

Habe ich mir gedacht, habs auch extra etwas abgesetzt.
Gilt auch mehr für das Gesicht an sich und nicht für das ganze Bild.
Man möchte das Mädchen einfach nur in den Arm nehmen - ganz behutsam, damit das Eis schmilzt und nicht bricht...

Verletzlich (verletzt) zerbrechlich, traurig, schutzbedürftig und irgendwie ... niedlich.
