Papagena by bluefooted Papagena by bluefooted
First attempt at coloring this - I'll probably change my mind and update it later :)

Stunningly elegant and beautiful, Papagena by ~bluefooted really caught my eye. It has such a classical style, great composition, and I can't help but adore all those details they've included above the tree. Be sure to check out the rest of this artist's gallery; their work is superb! ( Featured by savagebinn )

I wish the coloring was a bit sharper though, it's a little on the blurry side. I absolutely love the pink flowers spread intelligently across the piece. The two figures are gorgeous and the range of blues make them so ethereal-looking. Just beautiful!

All those flowers make a great Klimt-esque pattern.

I love everything about this piece, from the concept to the color choice to the delicate details. I'm particularly fond of the girl; her wings are so feathery and delicate, and the human face makes her appear so much softer and feminine in contrast to the boy character.
