Nostalgia by raevynewings Nostalgia by raevynewings
My final piece for the David Bowies. This actually went along really easy, took me less than 10 hours, in one sitting. Hurrah!
The giant scanner in the library really messed with it though.

I toned down his makeup and clothing to make it seem more serious and personal, like when you're brooding and heartbroken you usually don't give that much care to your appearance :P

This piece is so beautiful, the way you've portrayed him, with his muted pallette and toned-down flamboyant image really does make him more sincere than I've seen in other pieces. Just lovely.

I just adore the colors so much. I agree with what you said, it definately gives you a feeling of the fall season (no pun intended). The style is gorgeous, I just love how smooth and interesting it looks. It's has alot of interesting blends and contrasts. Wonderful detail, it's just beautiful to look at full view or thumbnail.

His face is fabulous, such sorrowful eyes.
His forever is a very long time, isn't it?..

I like how the ends of his hair take on the color of the mask, your color choices are very nice and his eyes are gorgeous. What significance is the ring if any?

It's his necklace's symbol, I didn't show his chest, but I still wanted to show his necklace, so I put it on a ring xD

I don't think there's a word good enough to describe how wonderful this is! The detail is stunning, the owl is elegant, and Jareth looks just as you said, heartbroken. *favs*
