life just isn't getting any better.

anyway, just wanted to create something to reflect my thoughts. i'm sure many of you will recognize the character.

but technically, i suppose my skills need some sharpening as i haven't opened photoshop for months now. and i don't even know what it is, still artistic nude?

Kostas, this reminds me of the Rusalka myth. Is it supposed to be like this? Really beautiful!

nope, something's wrong. no tail! she's more like a drowner, although she's still not. hard to explain.

Is Rusalka myth the same in the Russia's as in Bohemia? Because, I was told the myth that the Rusalka are women who drown... typically suicides because a lover has broken their heart. Because their souls are corrupted (due to the suicide) they cannot enter heaven, so the haunt the bodies of water or surrounding areas in which they have died. They are also called "Lady in White," because they are supposed to wear the thin white gowns. They try to lure men to their deaths... usually by seducing them with a sweet song/haunted melody and they do this until their death is avenged... like until they take their lover to his death as well. Sometimes, Bohemian grandmas tell children that they want children too... like they try to take and drown unsupervised children playing too young to be playing near the water. They say like, "don't go near that water or the Rusalka/Rusalki might get you." Like to scare them away. I was in this band awhile ago called Varuka's Scream, and each member had like a character, mythical or fantasy (whatever) and we had made up names. lol Mine was Siren and I was supposed to be a Rusalka. Anyway, I never heard that they have a tail. Could you tell me your version of Rusalka story maybe? I study Cultural Anthropology (mainly ethnomusicology) as a minor, I major in music/voice... but I really love to hear all the folklore, folk music, and see folk art of all places. Especially, where my ancestors are connected to in Eastern Europe and Ireland.

hm. i think you're actually right, the story goes somewhat like that. the actual rusalkas are just drown women. but english translation for 'rusalka' is 'mermaid', hence the strong association with the tail. unfortunately i'm not an expert in russian myths and legends (since childhood) so i can't share much knowledge.
