The Lady of Shalott by Kaytara The Lady of Shalott by Kaytara
huuuugh..... haaaaaaaaaaa....
*makes a terrible not quite human breathing sound, like the one heard in the Shalebridge Cradle in transitions between the past and present*

Um... ^^ That was supposed to be me being resurrected from the dead. Or becoming undead. Whatever. ^^

My new Wacom tablet has arrived half a week ago and it's a pleasure to work with - hasn't malfunctioned once in the whole time. :) I still need a new monitor, though, so as this was drawn on the old dim one, the first thing I want to know from you people with non-ancient monitors is whether the brightness is alright. As some of my watchers are surely painfully aware, sometimes the colours I use tend to be really toxic, simply because I see them a lot dimmer on my monitor.

What this is about? Well, this is for a contest on VHR, but since it was such a great idea I really put all of myself into it... and it was great fun, as well. The idea was a lady-of-shalott inspired pic - a horse standing in a boat with her mane and tail trailing in the water, and flowers in them. As you can see, I left out the flowers....
I really like the way the boat came out.

OMG! It's sooo gorgeous! I love the candle and the reflection and the tail trailing in the water. How did you make the water like that?

Luck, mostly. :) I doodled around with a tiny white brush and then I thought 'Hey, that looks like foam! Let's make more of that!' :D
Thanks for the comment...

Ahhh, Shalebridge Cradle! So you play Deadly Shadows too! WOOT!
As for the pic: a promising start, you should study equine anatomy and proportions, though. Looking at photos or the live things in motion REALLY helps...

Wow! I love the texture of the mane and tail. The trees in the background are gorgeous too.
I especially like the little candle on the boat. :)
