oh elly, you have some serious time on this one and it definately shows....great exercise!!
elly (Feb 16, 2009)
I don't know QT, there's something missing from this one compared to some others I've done recently on another site. It lacks the punch I was looking for....but, thank you so much for commenting...

This is awesome!!! I love lighthouses......I don't think I've ever seen one quite this pretty!!! Fantastic draw!! :)

You did a great job with it but you're right, there's something not quite there, yet but I'm not sure what that is either. Beautiful though

I know what's missing!! Maybe it's the "beacon light"'s not lit!!! "LOL"!!! :)

very abstract, I really like this one =)

My photo ref was quite pixely so I had to compensate for's just lacking the shine I like to see in my draws but if I hit it too much with the dodge tool, I lose what color is there! I may try a little brightening....or just say screw it and do another one! LOL O_O

eh......not much else I can do to this....cept maybe delete it!

don't delete it, just make another one that you're more satisfied with. This is all a learning experience, isn't it? If this is your first crystal drawing, I'd say it's pretty fine! Not an easy task by any means.

Oh I love an encourager! Thanks, Miss DJ =) I am going to try another one. I actually have 3 other crystal draws I'm quite pleased with, That's why I'm a little puzzled at this one in comparison... yes, it is however, all a learning experience...Love it! Thank you =)

Quite brilliant, I would say and what a unique idea for a painting. Amazing!

Elly, your work is outstanding and each pc. stands out in its own unique way. Love the lighthouse. I see what your talking about with the link you posted to the other crystal drawings, but this one is just as beautiful. Love your work and always have.

This is amazing! :D
elly (Feb 18, 2009)
Thank's y'all =) I'm glad a few of you got over to see the other crystal draws I did...they're tedious but very satisfying!! MUAH!
