wow this is an amazing piece! i love the techniques you have used and the concept is pretty interesting. some suggestions i have it to try to use a different perspective, make the closer objects more crisp, add more branches and texture to the nearby trees, and to add more "randomness" to the flora. overall, this is an amazing picture and i love how you made it feel as if the girl was swallowed by nature.

In this picture I see a forest that isn't dead, but is dormant. It's like a curse was placed upon this forest so that there would be pink mist over it; which mist would be constant. This mist doesn't allow the sunlight to penetrate. The mist also keeps this forest in obscurity; the forest is forgotten, hardly anyone knows about it anymore. It is here also that all ecological functions and dynamics have all but stopped, vegetation and wildlife is minimal.

But that white figured girl, to me, represents hope and light. The forest is very happy to receive her; even the fireflies are jittery and hopeful. It's like she is there to awaken the forest, undo the mist, and restore that place to a more lively, vibrant, and lush state.

The yellow of the fireflies accents the dark blue slumber colors of the trees. Your shading technique for the mist was very good. You could have made this forest look a lot more depressing, but I feel that you held back. That was good. The girl in the center could have been bigger. But I think you wanted to add emphasis to the degree of dormancy. The blending and contrasting of all colors was done very nicely.

This is a picture of when your life is in a slump. Nothing motivates you, your a little depressed, and nothing ever really changes. But then when this one person comes into the picture, everything changes. This is a picture of when everything is about to change because of this one person.

It's a really nice picture to look at, that's very easy on the eyes. Beautiful Work!
