Today's art is: "Mayel" by [Apfelkeks]
Today's art was nominated by: [yesidiaz]
About the artist and why this picture was chosen for the daily picture:
Some of the greatest things take the longest time. In speaking to [Apfelkeks
] about this absolutely gorgeous angel of hers, she told me how it had never taken her as long to complete a picture as this one did, talking of how Mayel would always just look at her and insist, "I don't need to be finished yet." What a great thing that she did finish, though, to offer this beautiful image. It was created for a friend, and was originally uncoloured. A request for colour brought it to life, and [Apfelkeks
] says the dress was the hardest, having to be coloured over and over several times to look as it does now. All that effort certainly paid off! The details in this image are amazing, so astounding that I can barely think of where to begin. I can't even find fault with the wings, which, while they aren't practical for flying (a pet peeve), are so original and beautifully done that I don't mind one bit. It's just a truly spectacular image in almost every single way.
Congratulations, [Apfelkeks], and keep up the good work!
