This really does the character justice; It's heart-breaking, fragile and all together beautiful.

I LOVE THIS! The chosen colours transmit the coldness of Death, the abundance of white colour talks of purity, the birds talk about the presence of the angels... Her body's position protect her own self, embracing his own body... The peace of her face contradict the supposed rage of God about her suicide act. Excellent! ^^

It reminds me of the paintings by Waterhouse, both in subject and style. Very well done.

I always complain that everybody on DeviantArt always submit artwork of Ophelia's death and not of her living because it would be nice to see her happy with Hamlet shortly before her death. But I must admit that this is a wonderful work of art. It looks like she's peacefully asleep.

How did you decide to do the layout? All of the greenery is really convincing too--you must've researched that. I love how real the water looks, especially around her dress.

just recently read a poem called "Ophelia" and I looked up the painting as well. Now everywhere I look I see images of Ophelia :D

All your paintings are truly spectacular!
