Tip for :icontheartofmanipulation: -

Whites are hard to blend together! I used Match Color and Color Balance, plus a bit of pink paint, to get the soft pink/red tones. It's important to make sure the brightness and shadows make sense with respect to your light source and with respect to one another. I really like the highlights/shadows function for this job!

What a delicate composition!
Eyes could not be delighted more by the soft tones and the delicacy of a solitary girl in an icy landscape! I see this in 600X600 in my monitor so I cannot state properly about the cutout of the girl. There is a white thick border on the upper side of the girl that, though fits with the incident light on the right, could be avoided on the left side (I think so, just a personal opinion).


I like so much the way you merged all the elements you linked to (I checked them and I realized the fine work you made with them): the trees, the snow and the ice seem to be blended in masterly fashion.
The light purple hue fits with the icy scenario and applies itself as the carrier of the message indicated in the title and as languid voice of the lonely girl, transposing the emotions you wanted to be transmitted.

I could finish here my critique, but I also would suggest to take care with the landscape reflekted on the water. Shadows and hightlits should be placed properly to complete the composition in the most realistic way!


Definitively, I enjoyed your artwork, and I agree with the coice of the title, that suggest that feeling of abandonment concealed in the manipulation.

I'm feeling a contrast. The subject is cold and lonely, but with all that blissful white I feel peace like I'm at heaven. It's effective though =)

Before I even saw the description I was thinking "Evanescence" because of the way the woman was sitting/the dress. Nice work!
