Lady Virgin Mary by Whiteparasite Lady Virgin Mary by Whiteparasite
I kinda like religious paintings and specially their ambience and solemn mood. So, I decided do draw my version of "Virgin Mary" holding her newborn.

It's more a light and composition study than a finished work.
So any critiques and advice are more than welcome!

No reference used for the characters.

Well, I got to say I never seen something that creative before, all the Photoshop made work I've seen is just cartoons and made up characters but this is amazing. The lights and shadows are really good and the colors too. I really like how you did the textures, they came out awesomely good :D, also I like the skin because, it's really detailed and every little line that was meant to be there to represent things like wrinkles, is there on your piece of art. The whole work looks like you've put a lot of effort into it and you did every little piece of it really carefully. I have no idea how you managed to make that on Photoshop but it's amazing:)
What do you think?

Beautiful. I found this because I had just finished a painting of the Blessed Virgin.

This is wonderful. It is blasphemous and so respectful and sensitive at the same time.

Beautiful composition. I really enjoy how the metal and blue robe give a cold feeling contrasted with the overall warmer colors the rest of the composition. It's like the physical, tangible parts of the picture are saying one thing, but the abstract ambiance of the entire world it takes place in is saying something much greater.

I don't know if that sounded really pretentious or something, it's just something that this particular piece really dug into my skull. Wonderful work :)

thank you very much for your appreciation and kind words.
I wanted a more "classical" environment but it came out a bit more ominous than I thought.
Glad you liked it :)
