Lady of the Lake Gwent Card by DanielaIvanova Lady of the Lake Gwent Card by DanielaIvanova
Painted for ProjectRED's Gwent Card contest. I am baffled and speechless that it won first place on the community vote part: www.playgwent.com/en/news/2021… Huge thanks to everyone who took time of their day and vote for me. It means so much to me that my work received such an overwhelming support and love. 

Thank you both lovelessdevotions and TsaoShin for featuring this piece on the DD page! It has been an awesome experience for me. :love:

Painted in Photoshop, lost count of the hours.

I'm an absolute crazy fan of The Witcher III game so this was an amazing opportunity to draw some fanart of my favourite game. Unfortunately, we were restricted to characters that had not been already depicted as cards so there wasn't a huge choice, mainly secondary characters, but I do like the aquatic theme of The Lady of the Lake. It was very fun to paint an underwater scene.
I did end up repainting a lot of the elements and given more time I would have probably repainted even more, but I think it's time to let go and move on to other projects. 

Hope you enjoy the painting, looking forward to your feedback!

 I don’t know anything about the contest/ prompt or the video game that inspired this, but it is truly a magnificent work of art. I’m so lucky to have even spoken online to someone of such amazing talent!  
Thanks so much for sharing you art here for everyone, and special thanks for allowing me to share in it as well.

This was my favorite submission to the Gwent contest! I voted for it and got really happy to see it winning the popular vote ^^

The character choice was really awesome and you just nailed at the chromatic composition and framing, making it the most creative interpretation of her in the contest. Congrats! :heart:

I dont believe that anyone can learn to paint, you have to practise of course but if you dont have talent, you practise in vain, its not like what i do, anyone can do what i do :)

If you think otherwise, i would be in debt if you can give me a beginner trick, where to start :)
