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"

Photoshop CS3
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 !

_____________________________


:star: Brushes used for this painting (you can use them but PLEASE credit me ;) These are for PHOTOSHOP CS3)

:star:If you don't have photoshop CS3, you can recreate all those brushes using my Nimue Custom Brushes Tutorial

:star: Wallpaper pack

:star: Details

:star: Animated WIP

Wallpaper coming soon on my other account (I'll update my journal with it)

Thought you'd like to know that someone has stolen this image, cropped it, and is now claiming it as their own. Since DA is often slow to take stolen work down if the report isn't coming from the original artist I thought I'd let you know. Link to their page: [link]

good portrayal of a female water nymph. i wish i can do such very artistic things. just a suggestion, why not make "lovers of the lake", i think it's best if they are both water nymphs too. :-)
