Green Spring Morning by sae-midori Green Spring Morning by sae-midori
I love how everything always looks so clean and fresh and vibrant after a light spring rain. One of my favorite moments during springtime is when the rain subsides and the sun barely begins to peek out from behind the storm clouds, yet raindrops are still falling from all the trees. As Totoro could tell you, it also makes a delightfully lovely sound~!

I really like this! The colors give off a really refreshing feel. I also like how the red umbrella gives off a nice contrast with all the cool colors surrounding it. Great work! :)

Mmyep. Honestly, the ambiance and the sense of air here, and in a lot of your work is just so spot on. There's a nice transition between the light play on wet objects (especially the grass), and the atmospheric fog you put in the background. It just adds to that sense of depth, and acts as a core factor to why this piece is so easy on the eyes; a bunch of cooler colors gradually merging with each other, with subtle, but bright reflections coming from the right side. The depth is helped also by the fact that your perspective here is "correct," while maintaining a nice sense of organic flow (it is a forest after all) that acts as a lovely setting for you to use the cooler, softer colors I mentioned earlier.

The character is constructed very well; placed in a slightly offset location so that she accents the landscape, instead of being the focus of it herself (a very nice touch). The orange umbrella pops away from the cooler colors on a fundamental and execution level due to warmer colors generally popping a bit more by nature, and due to it absorbing the reflections from the water. In a way, the lack of a distinctive core shadow on it is endearing, and adds to that relaxing feeling I get from this painting. That's really good since over saturating it in any way could have messed up the flow of observation, and you pretty much nailed it. It starts drawing the eye in to pause for a bit, before going back outward to the misty area around her again due to the brighter, steeper hill on the left. That then leads you to observe the leaves, and gently pushes your eyes back toward the more dense fog., and so much more.

Obviously none of these concepts would mean anything without proper skill and theory to back them up; you clearly posses years of both. From the papery texture on the tree's bark, to the balance of near-whites on top of mid value, higher chroma tree leaves, to the little details you put in the receding flowers on the bottom left and the shrubbery on the top right, this painting is packed to the brim with careful thought, and loving dedication. Honestly, this goes for just about all of your work. Between that, and hearing the way you talked in Nyanfood's Picarto stream, you've pretty much become another major motivator for me to take my own environment design study and digital paintings to the next level.

I'll say it one last time; your work is incredible, and I cannot find anything wrong with it on a construction or execution level. You, as the artist might see some details or base flaws in your work, but I see those alleged imperfections as a a literal human touch added into the piece. Besides, I'd rather see a sketchy piece of work that shows the construction, than a stiff, shiny piece of work. Luckily, your process allows you to create both: a very natural, "human" piece, with some incredible detail work to wrap it all up. Ultimately, in my eyes, you've gotten nothing wrong here, and thus can only keep improving on the things you already do in such a gorgeous manner. I know you get a lot of "zomg, ur art is so 10/10, wat betre den mi," and that's great, because you deserve every single one of those (though, I'm 110% sure you and I both hate it when less experienced artists put themselves down unfairly, and condone positive improvement). But if nothing else, I wanted to take the time to at least somewhat delve into this piece and back up my praises (it was hard to choose just one since all of your pieces are astounding). If you think about it, that's me just reciprocating a fraction of the love you put into this artwork that rubbed off on me right back at you.

Thanks a bunch for this piece Sae. You rock!

Oh, wow! Thank you ever so much for the incredibly lovely compliments! Your unexpected comment has rendered me absolutely surprised and speechless, haha, and I'm left trying to find just the right words to equally honor the time and care you put into your writing. I'm truly delighted to hear that so many of the ideas and concepts I put into my art has shone through. But even more than that, I'm super happy to hear that my work has inspired you in such a way, and for me, that is the ultimate compliment. You have a great attentive eye for detail and a firm grasp of the principles of art, and so I'm positive you too will be able to make your own environmental designs truly shine in their own unique and special way!

Thank you again for the amazing comment! Let's both continue to do our absolute best and take our artwork to the next level! Haruhi Suzumiya Emote - Thumbs Up ~Star!

I love this so much!! It really makes me feel like it's springtime again. (Which I wish it was, this dreary December weather we're having is no fun, and there's not even any snow lol) I love the detail on the trees and everything just looks so perfectly placed. I wish I could be the girl with the umbrella. ; u ;
