I started this piece with the intention to make a sequal to the "Jungle Dryad", maybe just to test my current skills. Can't believe that's already 7 years ago now. I also didn't work on a bigger personal piece for quite some time.

I still like some of the same themes visually, like human (female) anatomy, nature, colored light, but I felt the first dryad artwork never told a story or had any meaning. My first idea was just to show a nice pond with a lot of water lilies and a dryad, but that felt blunt after I did some sketches. And I put some more time into the composition and colors, although there are still some areas I would do differently if I had to start it all over again. But that's not suprising I guess.

If this counts as "Adult" let me know.

Wow! This is stunning. Very well done.

Ridiculously absurd wondeful piece.  :)

I see, but yeah, either way, great piece. And really nice colour handling especially.

No, it all reads well to me. I just wasn't sure if it was curiosity or disapproval or what. But astonishment makes sense.

@ParkerBaby: Maybe the mouth is not readable enough? (It's supposed to form an "o" for astonishment) I had the issue with a different monitor and the original resolution.

@ptoing: Thanks a lot! I posed myself for the right arm but couldn't see the elbow. But maybe I didn't get the angle 100% correct.

@Guffman the raw pixeling process was over the course of 4 weeks, maybe like 1-2 hours each day.  Sketches and everything else adds another week.

I don't know what the expression is meant to convey. 

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/26/2019 09:17

Lovely piece. I feel like we should see some of the elbow of her right arm, but not quite sure. Lovely either way.

  Amazing! how long did drawing take?

Super17 (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 9/26/2019 02:39

Thanks for the comments!

@JerryPie: That's really nice to hear, I never knew! Thanks!

Only 31 colours!? Looks like 4x that much. Absolute mastery!

The first was one of my favorite pieces on the site for years. I was so excited to see this thumbnail! The full image did not disappoint. This is incredible
