an elven queen, raped by the lord of chaos and now with child, kneels down in the shallow waters of a stream deep in the wood and performs a cleansing ritual, in hopes of removing the evil taint from her unborn children. concept by wren (amira el-hanfy) for the santharian dream. done in painter 8 and it took a while. i really enjoyed the first version of this painting in no small part because of wren's teriffic, tragic concept. there were quite a few things in that version that just did not stand up too well to a closer look, though. i have learned a huge amount about painting since that version was completed, including how important a really strong background is. i just got tired of looking at the old one and wishing i had done some things differently, so i went ahead and did them!

It is very beautiful and a very beautiful concept. However... my only constructive criticism would be that her upper body is huge compared to her lower body.

This is beautiful, I love the gray colors you chose. It remind's me of Arthur Rackham's The Rhine Maidens. 2

It’s beautiful, but her pose is extremely stiff, maybe try your hand at figure drawing(loose sketches) for a while. That way your poses and therefore your paintings will become so much more expressive! Also her legs are a bit tiny compared to her torso...
