This painting has been in the back of my mind ever since I saw her. It's so beautifully done, and powerful, that I had to come back here to post about how good it is! Love it!

this is really beautiful and old fashioned looking- I love all the browns and yellows, and the contrast of the warm and cold colours on each character.

You've captured a body and facial style that certainly can be associated with the naturalism of the renaissance culture. I especially like your choices in nudity for Apollo and "clothed" for Daphne here since that's especially parallel to the visual language of  post 5th c. BC Greece. In short, well done.

The early Renaissance feel it has -- it has been perfectly captured so well and so genuinely that it makes this appear to be an actual expert painting by an artist from the era.  I find this, along with being a scene befitting their typical subjects, to be the most tremendously impressive qualities of the work.  You have truly done the art historian community a good favor, a historian equivalent to our fanart of today?  Well, to finish, I like the technique and the painting as a whole very much.

The line of her back does not look like it will match up with her lower half under her clothes properly. I don't have any training so I'm sure I'm wrong or experiencing some sort of optical illusion of the 2D sort but that's my opinion. 

I like that none of the trees around her look like her new form as she is the first of her kind. 

This style is a rare treat. Thank you! :)
