What a beautiful execution of such a heartbreaking moment, I love how you illustrated her being cascaded into the wave itself. The framing is exquisite!

Oooohh... dissolving into sea foam. Beautiful. I love the soft color on the sea and the way the wave looks like a dress she's wearing...

Thank you! i would seriously love to. i just went through google and emailed examples to every illustration agency I could find in the US and UK and the only response I got was that I should paint more variety of things, like cars and buildings and crap. I was like "nope!" Like, why would I do that? I wanna paint girls in poofy dresses running through the woods! Lemme illustrate one of the vampire novels! I dunno how to break into this business so I'm just gonna keep painting. :/
