Her Eyes by Dianae Her Eyes by Dianae

It's going to be included in Exposé6 !!!!!! :dance: :faint: :jawdrop:


Hi everybody!

I've finally found enough motivation to finish this piece.... (though I may fix some things later, I don't know... I'm just way too tired of this one for now!)

The story behind this painting is quite simple : the girl (you're free to find her a name if you want) is some kind of a noble witch, she was born blind then discovered that she had the power to see through the eyes of animals.
The serval cat she's holding is now "her eyes", he's bound to her (that's why he has human eyes).

I started this painting as a study to practise curly hair mostly and I ended up finishing it....

A beautiful serval photo found on DA today, go check it out!


Photoshop CS3
Wacom Intuos 3A4
80 to 90 hours approximately (maybe less, maybe more... I can't remember...)

No direct reference used, but I googled some image of serval cats to create my own serval and I used a mirror for the right hand.

I hope you'll like it!

Thanks to everyone who helped me!

I love her eyes. They almost have an iridescence to them. And her bio, I really like that. And yay for servals because they don't get enough lovins. Have you or are you going to write a story about her? I would love to read it.

I honestly can't stop looking at this photo. The amount of detail in this piece of art is next to unearthly. It's just astonishingly beautiful. The more you look at it the more detail you notice- the building in the background, the design on her outfit, each little gemstone, all the flowers and leaves, the bee, the butterflies, each strand of her hair... It honestly is one of the best pieces on Deviantart! You are such an inspiration, I hope to be able to draw like you one day :D

Elle est magnifique , j'adore ses yeux (ceux de la femme) et tous ces détails c'est vraiment joli, on ne sait plus où regarder, j'ai envie d'entrer dans l'image et d'aller jusqu'au chateau. J'aime toutes tes peintures mais celle ci est ma préférée je crois =).
D'ailleurs je l'ai piquée il y a quelques jours pour la mettre en fond d'écran (j'espère que j'ai le droit ^^') , et ça me motive de la voir, j'espère un jour arriver à ton niveau...mais j'en doute xD.

Simply breathtaking-the sheer detail is astounding. I've tried to get fur texture to look real, and I can never seem to accomplish it-I just want to reach out and pet that serval.

Incredible work.
