A New Hope by ~MikhailD is improvisational art at its best. A mystical forest being, the Foreseer---yet another of this deviant's creature-designs---is stylized in a wispy, windy way, perched as it is over a pool of water. Enjoy her gallery.

A New Hope

At last I added FIRST coloured picture :] ( made with paint [Tempera and Ink] ).
In this picture there is a Foreseer - he isn`t an Elf but the Creature( Person ?) from forest.
This work I made by accident ... Firstly I painted someone , without sketch, and after that I had to create the background ...
"Great Improvisation" :I

Those colors are impossible. You kept them so subtle yet managed to brilliantly contrast. You are a prodigy. I, on the other hand, am completely color blind.

This is really cool. I like how he seems to blend smoothly with the background, and how it looks like he's made completely of mist. Excellent job!

VERY beautiful piece. If I saw it in a gallery I would definitely stop and stare. It has a wonderful sort of eerie glow to it and I love the delicate beauty of the creature. Wonderful work and congrats on Daily Dev. Its well worth the feature

The more I look at it, the better it seems to get. Got that sort of moment-in-time feel to it... o.O Sorry...anyways, it's is fantastic!

lovely... well... or haunting rather, but not necessarily in the creepy way. That creature doesn't really look dangerous, just unusual.

btw, I think the word you were looking for was "impersonation"? or simply "spirit of the forest", like... the soul of the place?
