I love this woman. Love her. The pose was inspired by an image I found while stumbling around Elfwood. I had the pose stuck in my head all day and finally I doodled it during class that evening. She came out so nicely I finally took her home and scanned her in - and used her as the base for this. I just brought it into Painter and started painting. I love the idea of naiads, and I think that's what she is. This is why I love my Wacom tablet. Without it, this wouldn't have been possible - not just on the computer, but at all. Because I moved her head twice and I tried a tail, without ever destroying what I had due to layers. And I'm really really proud of the face and the hand. So anyway, this is still in progress. I want your input. I need to make her hair slightly bigger above her left eye (a casualty of moving the head) and darken up some shadows; anything else? I want this to be my best pic yet! Dec 13: I followed some suggestions and I think she's fabulouser! Whatcha think?
