Kara and Wisscha by mynti Kara and Wisscha by mynti
Please, do not take this image, save it, and upload it to another site. Please respect my contracts and my clients. Thank you.

---

Commissioned piece for a client who wanted her stepdaughter drawn as a fairy for a birthday gift. She has kindly allowed me to also upload to deviantART prints so that she could purchase them through dA.

I had a reference for her face; but otherwise drawn from my head. I also used a caustic generator for some of the water caustics.

Here is Kara talking to Wisscha the Fish, and gathering information to help her on her next quest. She's had a moment of thought, and her sly smile reveals her moment of "aha!".
Painter and Photoshop + Wacom Intuos 3

Thanks again to `memod for the helpful crits on my wips :D

You can see the progress I went through here: [link]

It took me about 40 hours. Note me if you're truly interested in a painting!

I don't really understand digital painting, but this is absolutely lovely! I really like the fish, and the way she is reflected in the pool, and the little touches like the flower on the left.

I have seen just right now the process... and It's awesome to know that It's clearly equal as to do this with a brush and a paper, handmade work I mean. (I study illustration.)
Thank you for posting It... and I adore the image, of course. It's very beautiful!

Sure, glad to hear you like the process. I paint traditionally and digitally, to me the only difference is prep/cleanup time and cost... the rest is all red apple vs. green apple. :giggle: Photoshop won't paint for me (and I hope it never wants to!)... drawing skill is necessary in any painting and drawing, doesn't matter the medium I think.
