Eurydice by FreShPAiNt Eurydice by FreShPAiNt
I've been working on a few pieces for an alumni show at my college in October.

This is the first of three pieces based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. I've been a bit inspired by 1920's fashion, so I took a few elements of that, and incorporated them in the costuming idea.

I'll get into a larger explanation of why I chose that myth and my thoughts behind the piece once I have all three images completed and up. Anyway, I'm sure I'll keep picking at this one until the last possible minute.

I really love the palette choice in this piece; the contrasting warm and cool colors create just enough tension without overdoing it. It creates an atmosphere where this place may nearly fool you into being a peaceful place. I also love the thickness of her legs and the twist of her pelvis. What I would say, however, is that it appears that her top half and bottom half are working against each other a bit unnaturally. It would be unusual to have her back flat against the ground with her hips in the position they are.

That being said, the anatomy piecemeal is very well done, I love her neck, chin and shoulders, as well as her calves and thighs. Overall, I would say it is a beautiful piece and the composition is incredibly striking. Beautiful work!! :heart:

I post the steps eventually =) We'll see about a tutorial in the future. I'm still learning, I feel kind of odd giving others advice at this point. XD

I paint digitally in Photoshop, with a wacom tablet. In the past though I've used gouache and oils- there are a few of those in the gallery.

:D Yay! Hahaha, okay! I will wait as patiently as I can! :D :D ...That might not be so patient, though... -.-' I'm still pretty bad about stuff like that... lol

:O You have a photoshop? MAN! Hahaha, sorry it just seems that everyone but me has one of those right now. >.< <-- jealous face.

OMFG. Oil paints are so hard to use! And so easy to stain clothes with. *shudder* Lol, and I haven't even HEARD of the first kind! XD :p lol

I think I know this story. It was a sad one for sure.

This is a very nice piece. I love the detail you put into it. I'll bet it took a lot of patience.

I really like this piece especially in aspects such as colour and composition. There are a few things, though, that you might want to look into if you decide to rework it. In my personal opinion, although there are spots with excellent sharpness and detail like her feet and shoes, there are others where the lines could be sharper for a more dramatic effect and the colouring could be smoother. I think her skin would look a tad better if you'd smoothed it out, especially at her hands and thighs and if you added a drop of warm pink to the highlights. It would also look interesting if there were little spots of bright light coming from between the leaves of the trees and contrasting with the more shadowy areas. I'd also suggest adding a little bit more fine detail and sharpness to the leaves and some of the snakes to make them pop out. Either way, gorgeous work :clap:
