Beach by Miles-Johnston Beach by Miles-Johnston
Blah blah description. Take from it what you want, was aiming for a certain mood with this one, I hope you like it. Around 10-15 hours painted from imagination.

Edit: now with reduced right arm, cheers for the pointer TFsean

Pensive, emotive, and definitely alluring. There's a stillness and a bit of sadness. But it's beautiful in every way.

I would love to dance there, to the rhythm of the ocean and feel the cushion of sand between the toes...sigh that would be a lovely place to be. So sad, but so full of possibility, the emotion is conveyed beautifully :)

Wonderful work! This especially caught my eye because it strongly reminds me of a dream I had once. Love the effect of the wet sand.

If you're looking for crits, I would say she looks a little manly and kinda young/short. I would reduce the width of the shoulders, make the hips less square and raise her upper body to make the legs longer. But really that's nitpicking. You've definitely established the mood, and the brushwork is very nice.

I just noticed the rose... add some yellow or saturate the red of the rose it is almost invisible :D
I think her thighs could be thicker and more feminine, right now she looks somwhere between a girlish/boyish mixture.
Looove the sand and the atmosphere, and I would agree with what was mentioned earlier about the perspective.

Dude, that color, rendering, and atmosphere... its like Bougereau and Friedrich had a lovechild. Only issue I have is in the body proportion, either the legs feel too short or the torso feels too long. Keep kicking ass.

amazing, love the mood and reflections on the water. it makes the painting very real... and I think it's one of your best works!
But a little crit: you must make the mountains in the bg much bigger or add more details in the fg, the woman looks like a giant in front of the landscape!

Hey! Thanks for the kind words, they aren't intended as mountains, simply weird shaped rocks, maybe like a few metres high max, I wanted to give it a weird kind of dream like feeling :)

Impressive! Beach treatment is crazy. Just a crit: there is some subtle perspective difference with the character and background. Its like they are each viewed through 2 different camera lenses.
