In the Garden By the Sea by peachysticks In the Garden By the Sea by peachysticks
Commission for Lissa A. Ledbetter and characters copyright to her, art copyright to me. Kevan is looking at the water goddess Shelle from up in the tree...
"This was surely Shelle. The woman in front of me carried the same aura as the one that had so enchanted me the previous night. Her soft blue hair was now plaited into braids and weaved in an elegant design. The creases in her lavender gown were like ripples in water. With every second that passed she seemed to grow lovelier."

Well I ended up painting her a teal dress which was fine as well :) This was sketched in PS, painted in Painter,except the darker leaves in the tree, and lots of colour/lighting corrections in PS sprinkled throughout the process & at the end (much thanks to ~deadbear again). I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

I like the lighting in this... were the reflections in glass & water difficult?

The details, composition and lighting is so exquisite! Really well done! I can't get over how you did the lighting.

Not yet. I started this many years ago (I'm the author who commissioned the work) and then set it down when college got in the way. I'm picking it back up now with a serious mind of finishing it! Perhaps someday I can publish the work.

This is so cool. And he is so going to fall out of that tree. But I don't think she'll mind very much. Lol. :D
