New finished painting titled "The Curse"

Hey everyone, :)

Aside of working on a few commissions I finally managed to finish this painting. As I do with each new image I really pushed myself and I'm quite happy with the result. The leaves and other foliage was time consuming but fun to paint. The most enjoyable part about creating this work was that it gave me a chance to step a bit out of my box. I wanted to design a creature for a change that is a bit scary as opposed to another type of romantic human female character though they are still enjoyable for me to paint. :)

The story I have in mind for this character is that she was once a beautiful young woman who (due to a curse from a jealous rival) is now doomed to live out her days as a cave/swamp dwelling creature. She longs for the day that her nightmare with end.

Painted using Photoshop and Painter.

As I mentioned before in the work-in-progress post, I'm currently working on a full story for this image, which will be available in an art book that I'm currently working on. Find out more HERE.

Thanks for your visit. :)
