Digital Art_2019. Forest Nimph

Hi friends!

One day when I was sitting without Internet for five days, I created a new drawing...
This is again a mystical creature, but this time a humanoid.
It's the Elf.

I think now is the time for miracles and other magical phenomena)))

Ready artwork

I imagined that she was just sitting on a branch among the foliage...

I looked at several photos of seated women and sketched something like this


And I chose an unusual contrast color palette

Color Palette

Base colors
(Yes, I drew in Paint Tool SAI 2)

Step 1_Base colors

An environment - a leaves and a lianes

Step 2_Environment

Drawing a main heroine

Step 3_Elf

Step 4_Elf_process

Then I replace a setting of foliage brush.
This is the better view!
And I drew a lianes with vector tools in SAI.

Step 5_Lianes

Details for Elf

Step 6_Elf_details

Step 7_Elf's face

Adding a background (far leaves)

Step 8_Far leaves

Then I maked a color correction to layer with Elf - I wanted to add a nice warm shine to her body.
And adding a flowers in her hair.

Step 8_Flower

Very nice lady!

Step 9_1_Face

Drawing a texture of tree and one more details of leaves

Step 9_Forest texture

And finally color correction a little again!

Step 10_Final

Here is such a mystical forest lady turned out

Thanks a lot for your attention and donation!
