Ondine by dahlig Ondine by dahlig

Done originally for Imagine FX issue 100, I recently repainted quite a bit of the piece and decided it’s about time to show this one :)

Done in Photoshop from start to finish, with help of refs and peanut M&Ms. The full painting process was recorded and can be seen on that IFX 100’s DVD. And oh, if you want to check out the details, here is a FACE CLOSE UP


And about the piece itself: The task was to tackle a common subject of a “fantasy female”. Quite a challenge, since pretty much everything has already been done before within this theme. My idea to handle it was using contrasts – both in terms of depicted elements, colors, lighting etc. I love clashing opposite things so, in this regard, I consider this one a personal piece…

I had a blast working on it and hope you enjoy it too. :)

Beautiful as always. I wish I had talent like you! You were my inspiration to begin my studies in art. I do simple things now, and I'm currently in school for Graphic Arts, Media Arts, and Graphic Design. Please continue with your beautiful pieces.

Amazing! All of your artwork is so realistic! I love how she looks like she is glowing and the contrast between the background and the flowers.
