It always amazes me the sheer amount of meticulous and intricate steps that go into transforming your inital sketch works into another one of your trademark "Fern Masterpieces", but watching those intriguing steps in action is always quite the enjoyable ride indeed!
And I have to say, I'm glad to see that you went with the more-elevated positioning of her arm in the finalized piece, as that addition to her pose seems give a much more interactive feeling with the scenery in the artwork, and gives it a much more intimate vibe that is absolutely PERFECT for the feelings of hotness you very successfully invoked upon your lucky viewers within this masterful composition! ^^
Once again, I thank you very much for taking the time to share another fabulous offering of your legendary goodness with us, my friend. And I truly hope that these latest marvelous masterpieces from you will inspire many MORE of your watchers out there to commission an awe-inspiring Fern Masterpiece of their OWN from the Master himself!
It's amazing and looks effortless like this but there must be magic involved. I sometimes might be able to get an artwork to the 2nd to last stage but the finished up one is professional and unreachable for me. I will never understand how to paint so good.! <3
