Calypso, enchantress of the sea


I wanted to explore the use of photo reference with this piece to achieve a more realistic look. I haven't worked with photo reference for a very long time, and I wanted to try it out again. I was happy with the results of the experiment ^___^. I named her Calypso after the ocean goddess in mythology.

This piece is featured in Ballistic's Exotique 3. You can find out more about Exotique 3 here: www.ballisticpublishing.com/bo…

Aye Calypso the places you've been to,
The things that you've shown us, the stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit,
The men who have served you so long and so well

Great dev!

One of your best work. Vibrant and beautifully painted colors mash together in a mash of texture and form. Giving birth to this wonderful drawing/art.
