After the rain..., Diane Özdamar (2D)

Title: After the rain...
Name: Diane Özdamar
Country: France
Software: Photoshop

This is my entry for Saimain's contest on Medowhaven.

The characters are Faeren, a young elf knight and Snoots, his little enchanted pet. The theme of the contest was to depict the relationship between Faeren and the Forest of Illusions, since he's part of this forest.

I wanted to make him look as a tree and also live as a tree, growing after the rain.

I've had a lot of fun painting it, I hope you'll like it :)

Photoshop CS3
Wacom intuos 3A4
50 hours approx
No reference used (it has been challenging and fun to paint ^^ )

Please take a look at the CLOSEUPS, everything is lost in this version, there are lots of details that can't be seen in small size.

You can see the whole progress HERE

Faeren and Snoots belong to Adele.

I love the colors that you used, and I also admire your effort to paint without reference photos. I m actually stucked in that fase with reference images, it s addictive

this is wonderful stuff Diane, the colors (greens), hair and detailing has been very well handled. i esp like the over all mood of the scene.

fine work.

Your work is just magnificant, and you're constantly improving your techniques. It's pretty amazing to watch I must admit. This is easily one of your strongest pieces. The composition, color scheme and details are all working. The concept itself is really strong, and you managed to blend the human and tree quite well. As for the foilage... Flawless. 4 stars, quite possibly your best piece to date.
