old work that I almost forgot... =w=
for con submission but I'm not win so I upload it here
her design base of Greek nymphs, Epimeliads

--Epimeliad--
In Greek mythology, the Epimeliads or Epimelides are nymphs who are protectors of apple trees. However, the word for "apple" (μηλον) in ancient Greek texts is also the word for "sheep". This translation gives Epimeliads as protectors of sheep and goats. Their hair was white, like apple blossoms or undyed wool. Like other dryads,they can shapeshift from tree to human. They are also known to be the guards of the tree that the golden fleece was kept on.

Done in MyPaint  :)

It is incredible that you have done all the steps in MyPaint. I have been thinking that MyPaint is not suitable to draw the style like this. Great job!

I always believe that MyPaint can do better than any other program to make this-kind-anime-style illustration :)
