Rusalka by Vasylissa Rusalka by Vasylissa
New shadowbox, first from 'nocturne' series ( I'm planing all series in a little bit creepy mood, based mostly on Slavic mythology)
Rusalka- female water spirit from Slavic mythology. Her main purpose was to lure young men, seduced by either her looks or her voice, into the depths of water.
Warercolors + hand cut. I hope you like it!

SOLD

I really like how you've created a semblence of a skull with the moon and trees. It definitely works as an allusion to the mans grisly end.

Rather an innocent portrayal of a horrifying legend.  Let's hope the Vodyanoj shows up too early and   frightens the Muzhik boy away!

The art is very good, great color and layout.

Piękne!
Podoba mi się dobór kolorów, cienie, delikatny, "płynny" styl...

(Ale i tak moim zdaniem to ten księżyc ma oczy... i maskę Hannibala. Wybacz xD)

Tak! Ma!!! Cieszę się że zauważyłaś, bałam się że nikt nie załapie. Wprawdzie mial bardziej nawiazywac do czachy niz do hannibala ale dokladnie o.ten klimat mi chodzilo :)))

Kurczę, faktycznie się wkręciłaś C: Bardzo ładnie widać tutaj poszczególne plany i super jest ta ograniczona paleta kolorów, mimo to, nadal całość ma bajkowy charakter. Zastanawiam się tylko, czy nie byłoby warto nie zostawiać tych białych krawędzi [chociaż tatarak by zabił w takim przypadku].

oj wkręciłam sie zdrowo, pomysłów mam na pęczki, tylko czas jak zwykle się wypina.
Co do białych krawędzi to przydałyby się kiedy patrzy się na obrazek wprost, zwł na takim zdjeciu, ale już na żywo bardzo widać tą przestrzennośc i chyba za duzo byłoby tych niuansów :)
Coć myślę tez o zrobieniu shadowboxa tylko z białych kartoników, leciutko podrysowanych kredkami.
