From her hair splayed out as if she herself were floating in water to the delicately crossed legs and gently veined feet, Syllia... by *Dianae is phenomenal. Note the ruffling of the dress and the water drops comprising the swing ropes, along with the fixed expression of the subject herself reflected back in the larger water droplets. Instead of a perfect mirror image, they are distorted somehow with eerie yellow eyes.

:star:Little tutorial on how to paint water here : [link]:star:

A veeeeeerrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyy long time overdue artwork for my band. Will be used as posters / ads


Photoshop CS3,
Wacom intuos 3A4
No ref (I used a mirror for the lower part of the body and hands)


Looks MUCH BETTER in real life… details have disappeared due to jpg compression, as usual -_-

Edit : She's meant to have huge eyes, proportions of both a child and a grown up person, and a very weird expression…
Actually, she's not a young girl, she's ageless, and she's pretty mad… Not an innocent girl ^^'

EDIT : OMG!!!!! :faint: A DD oO THANK YOU VERY MUCH :icongermancitygirl: and :iconjunkbyjen: :faint: Thank you !!!
Wow… don't know what to say now :jawdrop: :faint:

That is an amazing concept. I love the way you used the water as a part of the swing... Plus your drawing skills are great. :D
