Watersnake by juuhanna Watersnake by juuhanna
Year 2013 is the year of the Water Snake, and I wanted to make an illustration of the subject. :) Also! I painted a woman! I haven't done that in a while.

I wanted her to have a slender and snake-like shape, and I though about Art Noveau and Klimt's "Waterserpents" when designing this - like how Klimt left out the arms and legs of the women, turning their torsos into flowy, almost abstract shapes.
This was an opportunity to test some new brushes again, it's so much fun although I often use the old familiar brushes alongside new ones. :)
Comments are much appreciated! :heart:

Photoshop.

I'd use this as a bookmark, but I'm always drawing so no time for reading. You drew the beads really nicely.

Haha, well if you do want to use it, go ahead! :) And thanks! Painting beads is really easy actually! You just need a sharp-edged round brush, and set the spacing so that there's a space between each dot. Then make a string of dots on a new layer, lock it, add shadows and lights, and voila! :D (I wonder now if I should make a tutorial about that?? HMM!)

Those yellow lines make me think of a harp, and the sound of a harp makes me think of water... a bit out of the context maybe, I know, collateral intelligence is not always acertive u'

Gorgeous work!!

Ah, that's a nice affiliation! Harp-music would suit the atmosphere of the picture nicely I think!
