I love the rusalky legends. Beautiful nymphs that capture the souls of passer-by with their song.

Again, another favorite of mine!

I'm loving it ;)

The pic creates an amazing amount of atmosphere, I'm thinking I could almost touch it. It's just her pose and expression, so cold and distant, yet so beautiful.
On the first view she seems to be abit lost in that lonely setting but thern you'll see her face and know that she wants it like that... or something like that.
I'm talking odd stuff... ^^"

Fav! :)

Wow, this picture is spectacular! This is exactly how I pictured Rusalka to be. Her face is very mysterious and angelic, and I love her pose, it looks like she is singing to the moon, like in the aria. :) The colouring is gorgeous, especially the shading and the transperancy and layers of her dress. The bark of the tree looks so textured and lifelike, and the light shining behind the trees is just breathtaking! :clap: Keep up the incredible artwork! :) I can't wait for the rest of this opera series! :D :+favlove:

this looks amazing. the ammount of detail is superb. I think the only critique I could give is that the shoulder of her raised arm is a little too high and almost looks dislocated. But the positioning of the arm and the subtleties of the hard are simply natural and beautiful, as are the colors and use of lighting. The bark is very well done as well and must have take a long time to do.

This is simply amazing. I had the good fortune of listening to liturgical cello music while viewing this masterpiece (another one so skillfully rendered) and the effect was haunting. Her legs have that healthy sheen to them and the dress is breathtaking in all its painstaking detail. The only qualm I had was that of the left (her left) arm and the way that the arm itself looks too small (could it be the effect of the skinny-ness?) but the hand was at the right proportion.

Other than, it's gorgeous. Once again, you've outdone yourself.

wow, thats really good! i like the way you rendered her skin, but i think you made her legs too skinny. well, i guess that could be said for her arms as well, so maybe its the style or something? theres also a sharp edge right below her right armpit that looks out of place, and it seems too dark in some places, like her left arm and hand, compared to the rest of the shadows.

how did you use the stock for the trees? some of the trees look a little too different from the woman, thats always something to consider when working with stock...

This is amazing. Really amazing. The landscape is *stunning* -- I don't know how the tree texturing works, but it *does*. It looks great. And *she* looks absolutely fantastic. The only thing I might suggest is putting a little of the deep shadow on the inside of her legs that you see on the underside of her arms.
Her dress and her hair are so perfectly rendered -- you can really feel the texture of both. And her features are so pale and pointed and Slavic, it's perfect for a character inspired by Dvorak. Wonderful job!
