Dreams of hope on the red waves by Helena-Lou Dreams of hope on the red waves by Helena-Lou
Dreams of hope on the red waves
This is... I had to do this peice twice because my PS hates me.
This is my character Ashkae, but it actually has nothing to do with her.
This is about me. Yes, I'm selfish even in my art. xD
So, I had a bad day. A very bad day, and I thought that was it and that I should give up.Then I saw a double rainbow and spoke to a few friends, so I decided to do this.
This is dedicated to you. You know who you are. Thank you for being there for me. I owe you everything.
Ashkae Andromeda is (c) to me, :iconhelena-lou:

A beautiful vision of a beautiful godess.
Pure, innocent, dreamy, sensitive...
All this things come to my mind when I look at this artwork.
It maybe is a simple piece, a headshot, a heaven...
But drawed in such a beautiful way like none second could do.
The heaven looks beautiful.
The only not so good critique I could give is about the outlines.
Your coloration is always so smooth and beautiful.
But since you draw very beautiful realistic your outlines are too "straight", like my outlines for my Manga pictures for example.
I`d recommend you to try to draw with a softer brush, or pen when it´s possible my sweet.
How said, your work is beautiful.
Just the lines are too hard.
Depending on hair, it looks very smooth and fluffy.
All in one, this piece is very beautiful my angel :heart:

Keep up the great work :)

She's simply gorgeous, and stands out in your gallery! =)  I wish my art style could incorporate such beauty.

Ashkae is the gem of my collection. She's one of my most recognisable characters in my arsenal, but not many people know much about her because she's changed so much. Though most people kind of forget about my Ashkae, she's one of my favourites. 
Thank you for your words. They mean a lot to me. :heart: :hug:

You're very welcome!  I have several characters that mean the world to me as well, so I know how it is. :hug:

She's so purty :meow: Want her red hair.
Helena-Lou Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you so much!! <3 I'm so glad you like her. I keep trying hard to better myself.
LizleMouton Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you've definitely been improving! :D The only thing I'd suggest is that you maybe start branching out a bit and doing people of different body types. You seem to be really comfortable with the tall and amazingly voluptuous female with long luscious hair ;) You need a challenge!

definitively one of my fav pieces of your work, the hair is just stunning and so soft in texture, while her face is angelic. AWESOME straight to favs

Thank you so so much! I can't express how happy your comment has made me.
I worked so hard on her and I'm so glad you like her. <3 Thank you ever so much. :tighthug:
