I think I'd wear boots. And pants.

Ain't the jettie gonna burn her legs?

What could possibly go wrong :) (Smile)  ?

The jerry can is the cherry on top - punctuates the idea.  I love it.  This is how I feel nowadays after seven months into digital art.  I'm ready to do this . . . Man!  It's a long way down.  XD

I think we need to start at lower highs....

Where all the fuel needed is supposed to be in this jetpack?

She will fly but she will never walk again.

Go for it!

It can work for flying (assuming an engine of this sort was made light enough for one person to lift like that)... just landing will be a problem.  I'm not seeing a way to eject (can undo the straps, but it's slow) or any parachute either, it's looking pretty grim T.T  That is a river I see though, so there is a somewhat viable spot to crash land that thing, water still smacks though, depends how slow that thing can be made to go before impact.  Upside down letting the contraption break the water may work best if it can be made to fly that way. 
Ti-toine Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014
Lovely piece ….

But a fuel jerrycan right in the back of a piping hot jet flame …. not a good idea.
IzaakShoelaces Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love this painting.
jerbearmeow Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Well, I think we got image of "landing"... :/
Levia-the-Dragon Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2014
Well... here's hoping she lands safely then. :O

Foxikiubi Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013
She looks a little nervous. Cool picture.
heliumgirl77 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
It looks gourgeous....BUT...I forsee 3rd degree burns on ankles!
NuclearDrake Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
yeah i have the same concern. :| (Blank Stare) 
heliumgirl77 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
My other half just told me he thinks it is unstable without a  tail, and that she'll flip head-over-heels before burrowing into the mountain. :-(

Its a lovely painting the sense of anticipation/fear on her face.
AvoidingReality Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013
Because having nothing protecting your legs right next to the afterburner of a jetpack-plane-thing is THE BEST IDEA GUYS. THE CONCERNED LOOK ON MY FACE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT I CAN FEEL THE BACKS OF MY THIGHS AND BUTT ROASTING OFF. NOPE. NOT AT ALL. Seriously though, this is really awesome artwork and I totally want one.
dardyone Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013  Student Photographer
this was exactly my thought... XD

Actually, this has possibilities, if you combine this wing/engine unit with the enviornmental suit (?) in your "FirePlains" image... :)

awesome work!
Oberstenfeldherr Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2013
i'm a little worried she's gonna toast the gas can behind her with that jet tail
Daquan Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2013
I dig the shading, colors, and expression she's wearing. Awesome scene.
yasermohavi Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
your colors are so live , I don't know how you do it but keep it up
eternalobserver Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013
Outstanding work! The kinda reminds me of "Naussicca" and "Castle in the Sky" by Hayao Miyazaki! Are you a fan of his work too? Kudos to you by the way! :D
Alligator-Fists Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013
The expression and body language communicate the perfect mix of the forebrain urging her on while the hindbrain resists with all its might. Excellent!
DwarvenSmith Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, I love the feeling in it. The ay she grabs the cliff with her toes makes it complete. It is like she is going to push herself away from it any minute yet is a bin nervous and grabs the cliff for support.

this is so cute
Tomoyo-Mew Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013
Awww! This looks great! You know, all your work should be in a movie. This looks like it could be a concept art scene, for a girl who is going to have her first body-plane race. So nervous and determined! Also I love the fact that she is barefoot. Nice and unique for a pilot to be shoe less. Thank you for the eye-candy!
SauceyFellow Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think it's a terrible idea to be shoe less. Coming in for a landing will leave you with bloody stumps. Then she'll need a personal flight system to handle stairways.
Tomoyo-Mew Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014
Haha. Yeah, well its fiction and who knows, maybe she has powers to stop her from being hurt to badly. Like blonde, flying, hulk girl.... yeah. She still has cute feet though.
