Eros+Psyche by dahlig Eros+Psyche by dahlig
I did ths picture some time ago, decided to submit it sooner, because it will take part in the Digital Artists Summit Digital Illustration Contest :) Wish me luck!

If you do not know the myth of Eros and Psyche, I propose you try this link: [link]

I hope you like it :) It was definitely the most time consuming project I ever did.

A different style, different tonation, lots of refs used, few dozen hours spent. Heavy Mucha inspirations can be spotted especially in the frame:)

Created fully in Adobe Photoshop :heart:


PS. I uploaded a slightly fixed version~

There, I knew I recognised it!
This artwork is being used in an Etsy listing here [link] It doesn't say anything about having permission to use the image or give you credit as the artist so I thought I should mention it to you.
