Fragile by meirou Fragile by meirou
This is an illustrative kind of "book cover" that took me abouut 20+ hours on Photoshop CS2. I fail at surrealism, and wanted to draw something abit out of my comfort zone. Unfortunately, it doesn't have that surrealist feel, but it's still cute. XD

Here's a close up of the girl - [link]

Note - It looks like I've put the leaf in front of her hand to cover it up on purpose, but I haven't. XD I'd already drawn the hand but the leaf covered it. oh, i used aquasixio's cloud tutorial :aww:

This is sincerely beautiful. Good job with the colors. By chance, I found this drawing in a journal entry about clouds [link] , it catchs my eyes.

It's fun because I said to myself " she has the same kind of idea than me " before reading the descritpion.

Sincerely nice work.

Oh thank you! Back when I drew this, you were my biggest inspiration. I've developed my own style now but your tutorials helped a great deal. :)

Hmm, I just painted the clouds with a really soft pressure with a large round brush. And I always have cloud references to make sure they're the right shape, ^^
