Entries in nature (16)
Second image is a screenshot of the work in progress: here you can see the individual, drawn parts in the background, ready to be arranged.

Revenge of the Girls ver.2
So, I decided to confuse you by not being able to make up my mind which version to stick with. Again. Kind of experimental, rough sketches, playing with newly designed brushes and textures, drawn mostly free-hand and incorporating (instead of deleting) flaws/mistakes.
The scene depicts a world of ghosts and dreams: the girls revealing their true nature (not necessarily a bad thing), or transforming into nature, which they are both attuned to & protective of. I prefer the first version visually, although the second version feels more in keeping with the theme (transforming instead of already transformed).
Digital illustration and collage.
Sometimes I try to interperet feelings instead of ideas or stories, although the three often merge together somehow, almost of their own accord. Sometimes it is as though the image comes alive and takes control of its own destiny. And sometimes I have no idea what I'm talking about! My Ophelia represents longing and buried emotion, something about to chrysalise.....positively. She is an effort to recall what I myself cannot.
Changeling or The Fairy Host (I can't quite decide)
Digital painting with textures, for the Fairytales series.
Sometimes there's a story and I have no idea how to translate it via text. The image contains all that there is to know, yet the most vital details remain invisible. This involves a reconnection with what was once lost or misplaced. Who or what does she embrace? Her invisible kinfolk I suppose, an immortal prince or lord of forgotten lands. I wonder what she had to sacrifice in order to reach them.... x
