Hey Amalia, ever feel like you have a stalker? Me neither!!!Watching, watching.....back in a second when I think of something incredably intelligent to say (should be a few hours in that case...):)
O gee I tyaped something amazingly insightful and google garagles it UGGHHOkay second try.I'm always intrigued by your iconography. It's so beautiful yet in a way it's hieroglyphic -as all images are. So what the viwere needs is the rosetta stone. No?In this image there's the onderful continunace of the organic. The giantess is not only part of the island - she IS the island. She is beautiful and serene - yet her gaze out to sea (see) tells the real story.She needs outside contact -underlined by the message she has cast out in the bottle - that wonderful item placed for the delighted discovery of the viewer.So she is again Gaia. Or is she. Perhaps she is in the Himalayas and Noah's second flood is upon her?Err, sorry for raving :)The first time was much more intelligent and wonderfully funny:)
If you are wondering what I wrote, I will translate the typos for you :)
Hey Amalia! It is very hard to follow up such insightful comments as Andrew. Love the elegance of this piece. The way she ponders the sea before her and the sunlight dancing off her hair. Such beauty and grace. The message in the bottle caught my eye.... I thought someone sent it to her and she hasn't felt compelled to bother with it yet. ( I proposed to my wife with a message in a bottle... she loved it!)
Amalia,I cannot tell you how much I want to be a bird on your shoulder when you draw!
Wow, what can I possibly say after Andrew and Jacks comments. It will all sound so, uninspired.... so I will just say this is dreamy, it is lovely, it is wonderful.
Beautiful, Amalia... if I hadn't noticed the blouse, I would have thought she was a mermaid, with all of her long and flowing hair, and her wistful gaze.
After Andrew's comment, anything I say will sound so moronic. I echo Andrew's second comment minus the typos.
Aha! You call those 'typois'? err I mean "Typos". They are in fact, carefully considered variations on well known but overused English words that have somehow lost their meaning through the ages by .... and other things.:)
Ha! Never thought I'd live the day to see Medusa commenting first... So, where should I send your prize to? Don't worry, I have more than coupons in mind. Hahahahaaa!!Now, Monsieur. I think I should get used to how well you are able to strip my work bare naked. Honestly, can't I keep things nicely hidden anymore?? Hehehe. No, really. I like it when people tell me their own interpretations of my work. Shows just how well the human mind works and how brimming with intelligence some people are. (^_*)
Jack, my sweet friend. I think I will officially crown you one of the most romantic men I've ever came across! Sorry, women eat these things in whole and I am, a woman. Hehe... Thank you for you lovely comment, of course :))Julia.. I would LOVE to have a bird as sweet as you perched on my shoulder! oxxKaren, thank you sweet! Your "dreamy, lovely and wonderful" is swelling up my head! Haha.Ces! Nothing you say will ever be moronic!! Ever!! (^-^) oxx
Susan deary, thank you. You know, I thought about drawing a mermaid at first, but my hand had other ideas. Obviously. Hahaha... :))
Amalia, this is a beautiful piece of work, I love it! :]
I think this has to be my favourite of all your art so far! I love her far off, distant expression and how her hair flows just like the water. Those beautiful blue tones feel so magical and dreamy :)
Honestly, these girls have the most amazing hair!! This is every girls dream, and most of the time I end up with a scraggly mess.

ckckck, giant yang cakep. cahayanya juga oke tuh buat aksen.. splendid as usual :D
She is amazing, Amalia!! Wow!! Your work is always so beautiful!!
Hi Amalia! Thanks for dropping by my blog, and bringing to this vision of loveliness you've created. I'm gaping at the gorgeousness flooding from it. Simply amazing. I love your technique.
Tori & Ella, thank you! You're too kind. And nice to see you stopping by... :)Vanilla, I love your work too, you know! So thanks for saying those lovely things about mine. :)Krista hun, I've always thought that beautiful hair is the crowing jewel for women, so I promised myself that all my ladies will have nothing but! Hahaha... :DAmba my little rhizome, observant as always. I'm still amazed at the amount of meanings you are able to pick out. :))Manon & Susanna, oh you are both so kind to me! Thanks you for dropping by and looking at my work... :)
hi teh ;D aku suka deh sama bibirnya soalnya warna biru, COOL!!!!!aku juga suka message in a bottle!!!!
Her island is her treasure, her shelter and realm. But maybe it's not all she needs, since she's grown up, without noticing how and when... And we see her already listening to the world, but is she ready to meet it? She has written her message,yes, but it'll reach no shore, because the water (her hair!) isn't enough to take it there...I like the use of blue and that her look is not turned towards her anymore... Oh, Amalia, I haven't commented your superb way of drawing hair for a long time, but this is the most remarkable thing in all your drawings, at least at first glimpse! They say that hair is man's connection with outer space...xx
Thank you for your lovely comment Amalia, I was feeling kind of low this morning I guess like me the giantess may be feeling she belongs in another land maybe? I'm sure I was supposed to be a tree living wood elf or something.
Excelente ilustración, tus trabajos son muy buenos…Lo que más me gusta de tus ilustraciones es que claramente podemos ver que se trata de un perfecto dibujo a mano, hecho a lápiz y sobre papel, con muy poco retoque digital…Eso me gusta mucho…felicitaciones…Excellent illustration, your works are very good ... What I like about your artwork is that we can clearly see that this is a perfect hand drawing, done with pencil and paper, without digital enhancement ... I like that much ... congratulations ... (I hope my English translation is good and can understand)Thanks for commenting on my blog.
Stunning illustration, Amalia.She looks so content in her own island far away from everything else. Just beautiful!Btw, thanks for not using embedded comment anymore:) It doesn't seem to work well with firefox, so I normally have to open another window on chrome
i love the light, the way it lights her up from behind as she looks out at her world. enchanting.
Hmmmmm...an island of her very own, sounds absolutely dreamy! I could sooo handle that! Excellent yet again, Amalia! (and yes, the panda loves hugs!) ^.^
Anana... blue lips? Bring back the 80s!! Yeeaayyy!! (^-^)Darling Rossichka, you got me smiling and thinking away with your comment, as always... Thank you :))Bernardo, good to see you here and thank you for looking at my very humble work... :)Heidi, thank you my friend! And you're right, embedded comment page gave me nothing but problems. Hope I'll be seeing more of you her now that it's gone? Hahaha...Tammie and D, thank you! You're very kind with your words. (^-^)

Oooooooooohhhh! Look at how those tree roots grab hold of that island! Fantastico! Look down! Look down and grab that bottle before it floats by! Arrrrggggghhhh, oh the tension!This is an awesome illustration! I have a friend who owns her own business, and she recently told me that she is the king of her very own ant hill. Reminds me of that.Oh my, Andrew gave quite a complete analysis of your drawing. Well said, well said.
Hahahahahaha. You sure? I can be very long winded sometimes.You may not want to stand behind me, either.Oooh, what's this! A box that's glowing on the inside! Thank you, thank you!
Amalia! I love the lighting in this beautiful illustration! Wow!! It is always so wonderful to see what you've captured. I love how you integrate her hair to the island formation..how you weave your ladies into the trees and land...it's gorgeous! I hope you have been well - things are quiet here..which is so wonderful! : ) I am going to start working on a lettering project now...can't wait! Have a wonderful weekend ahead, dear Amalia!
ok Now this IS my new favorite!!!Mind blowing composition!!Gorgeous work !!
Ces, you better start eating something else other than peach ice cream, no matter how delicious it is! Hehee... And thank you, my head is swelling up!! (^_^)Sandy, Lauren & E.V, aw, thanks so much! You are too sweet! :))Meg, good to see you here! I LOVE your work too, you know! They're something else... :))Bells!!! I'm ringing ALL of my bells now that you've came!! Hahaha...(HUGGGSSS)Shirley sweet, thank you... nature has gotten me under her spell. That's a fact. And all the best on your project, of course! oxxAh, the Bird Queen is here! Thanks for stopping by, Helen... (^-^)
no, its just a sentence i wrote all over the sheet, before starting to draw:) ("venga il silenzio dalle onde", that would sound like "let the silence come from the waves") its a piece about the recent petroleum disaster, for a collective-project of a friend of mine!
ahaha!mine too, to be onest!:)
I have been away from your lovely blog for far too long...Shame on me! Now I am back and I feel like a parched soul who has wandered the desert only to come to a sparkling sapphire lake.
Tell me your lovely daydreams, they always make me smile! ♥
