The Idle Egg

My first real attempt at digital painting. Kind of rushed, but ehh.
The prefect bathroom scene in GoF: possibly the most enjoyable subject I've ever worked with.
I should mention that the mermaid was inspired by a beautiful painting by John Waterhouse - ([link])

Oh fantastic!

You really tackle some of the best scenes in the books, and i love how you put your own twist on them.

That mermaid was the first thing that I noticed, since I have that picture in my room. (A poster of it. I'm broke.)

I love it. Makes me feel like I'm there.

Oh to have a bathtub that big would be so nice :D And love the Waterhouse (your version) in your painting. Great job even if it was rushed, I couldn't tell :)

Damn! That is SPOT ON!

I've never seen so accurate a portrayal of the Prefect's Bathroom, before! I'm going to have to fav this. It's too good not to!

That is MY bathroom. :heart:

Your reproduction/renovation of the Waterhouse painting is gorgeous. I love his work. You did a remarkable job, I recognized it instantly.
