Miss Mother Nature by TheLadyJ Miss Mother Nature by TheLadyJ
:la:
My entry for :iconpremiummembers: contest, "Mother Nature." Needing to be represented in some artistic way. So, I made her a woman, completely adorned with all her beautiful talents. The ocean, the forest, the ice, volcanos and a variety of animals. Oh god, all the animals. 17 total creature types. Can you pick all of them out?


And of course, you can't forget the humans. We are so interwoven into mother nature. Enjoying her oceans, eating her game, discovering her treasures; both destroying it, and trying to preserve it, all at the same time.


I really, really, really, really love how this came out. One of the more complicated things I've ever done. Her hair goes from the surface to the deep, her skin is as various as the world itself.


Edit: No one's said anything about the subtle Beetle's reference?

That is really impressive, J! :)

The way you blended all the different elements together across her body just works really well. I especially like how you tied her hair in with water. The flow and the shift in colors fit very well.

It all started with that ship on her head, and worked down from there. The lines and elements just kept coming. I'm exceptionally happy how the coloration of her hair came out, showing the depth of the sea. I think that detail just elevates the piece.


And no sir, UR impressive!

Very eye catching, I can see you put a ton of detail into this. I am reminded of the old romanticized seafaring maps from the age of exploration, where sea monsters might be situated next to a compass.

Funny you mention that. A side hobby of mine is drawing sea-beasts, on maps I find! But yes, it has that feel to it. :3
