Girltripped Contest Entry by AkiAmeko Girltripped Contest Entry by AkiAmeko
My entry for the Girltripped Fanart Contest [link] , based on this photo [link] by :icongirltripped:

For the contest we had to choose a photo from their gallery and do a fanart of it. This is one of my favorites... The look in the girl's eye and the way her hair flows is just so lovely. And when I started sketching this one out, it struck me so much that it needed some extra stuff in it to give it a touch of fantasy... So I came up with this nymph/fairy type of thing. :)

I had a lot of fun doing this, and I think it challenged me and encouraged me to do better.

Surprisingly, I rather like the greens and the earth tones... I don't normally work with those colors, so this was a bit of a change for me. :)

I started out trying to make her wings buggy like most fairies, but then it turned out kind of feathery... And now it's something in between. 0_o Oh well. I like it.

I aplogize that this came out anime-ish, since I'm not sure that's exactly what the wanted for entries... But that's the style I'm most comfortable working in, and I like it. ^_^

Also, see this awesome entry based on the same photo! [link]

I like the hair!
It's one of the hardest thing to do in a picture but it looks so easy from looking at this

I like the tatoos in her face, and the rest too :D

Thank you so much! Hair has always been my favorite thing to draw, and by the way others talk about it, I seem to have a natural knack for it. >w<;; Again, thanks!

Very beautiful. I love the background, and her face, and the fuzzy wings, and the long, flowing hair.

Wow. This is amazing. I don't know how to describe it but it seems a lot different than your usual works... It might be the colors but there is just something awe inspiring. The face is incredible and I'm uber jealous of your hair skills!

:XD: Again with the hair! Everyone keeps saying it's good but I think it's sloppy... I guess this is my slap in the face. :XD:

Bit different huh? I'd count that as a good thing. I was also trying a bit harder, you know? I'm really pleased with it.

Thanks so much!! :heart: :hug:

Yay! Thank you for the link to this piece :)

Altough we used a similar scheme, I think our works turned out different enough. In my opinion this photo is just so tempting to make a fantasy fanart, ehehe

I like your version :heart:
Especially the facial expression turned out very well.
Her wings are nice, too~ they look a bit like 'leaf skeletons' *searches the right word...
Well, like this thingie here:

or maybe wings of a dragonfly?

Whatever! It's just lovely :heart:

Oh, and thank you for the link to my work, I feel honored :w00t:

it's nice to see a different style, we were actually hoping for some anime just to change it up some. Nice job.
