Sacred Waters by hexsy Sacred Waters by hexsy
Full view please.

This took way too long to do, but I'm fairly satisfied. I wanted something with more of a background than I usually have, so I actually painted the background first.

This is Prytha Sindair, my oldest and longest-lasting original character. Her story has been revised countless times and I have two notebooks of stuff on her world.

This is in one of her ancestral homes, in a temple dedicated to the ether-like substance that makes up the essence of their power. She's not really lying on water, but it can act very much like water.

She grows up in a time of conflict, where her kind and their distinctive eyes are hunted because they pose a danger to the stability of reality. Those hunters are newcomers to her world, refugees and survivors from terrible wars that made the world they left uninhabitable. When those refugees realized that in Belkara, the same type of power that destroyed their world was the preferred weapon of the entire ruling class...

Nice composition. I like the fact that the background creates an isometric environment (thanks to its parallels).

Her clothes combination is unusual, but I think it works pretty well :)

Thank you! I really struggled with the composition on this one, so I'm glad to hear you think it works well (normally I don't pay much attention to composition, haha.

It looks really good from my point of view ^_^

The way the top of the image is darker than the bottom half reinforces the "lying down" feeling.

xD Thanks. Drawing something like this takes me ages, though. I'm very slow.
