_____________________________Nimue, the Lady of the Lake
A personal version of this character from the Arthurian Legends.
I've been sick all night so I couldn't do anything but to stay at home for the New Year's Eve
I felt so frustrated that I spent all my night painting something personal (I had not done this for quite a long time ^^' )
This is also a pretext to try some new custom brushes I made
and to experiment with abstract + "realism"
Wacom intuos 3A4
7 or 8 hours
No reference used
Inspired by Ewa Karpinska, Gustav Klimt and Odilon Redon art. If you don't know Ewa Karpinska, you should REALLY check her artworks out !
She's an amazing painter who has a very unique way to use watercolours !
_____________________________ Brushes used for this painting
(you can use them but PLEASE credit me
These are for PHOTOSHOP CS3) If you don't have photoshop CS3, you can recreate all those brushes using my Nimue Custom Brushes Tutorial Wallpaper pack Details Animated WIPWallpaper coming soon on my other account (I'll update my journal with it)
