I Turn the World to Ice by cheetahspirit I Turn the World to Ice by cheetahspirit
After drawing Melissa as an angel and a devil girl, I wanted to draw her as an ice princess. It was a challenge to change her hair and eye color, and I really like the lone lock of teal hair in there. I love her "icy stare", and I have to think she is giving me the "cold shoulder" as well B-)

If this really is a traditional drawing this could be the best one I've ever seen. Beeing able to create such a work must be close to the end on the long path of learning.

Did you do the reference photography for the background by yourself as well? It's brilliant.
Really.

It is 100% drawn by hand. I hope I never reach the end of learning!! I hope that there will always be room to outdo myself! I used a stock photo from stock.xchng, and obtained permission from the photographer. Unfortunately, there aren't any places like that here is Michigan!
