Elwing's transformation by IstarArt Elwing's transformation by IstarArt

"The Transformation of Elwing" illustration awarded a special mention in Niggle Awards 2012.

Watercolor and ink on Canson Montval paper

Me gustan particularmente el cielo y como el pelo refleja el movimiento de las olas, muy 'Mucha style'.

La única pega que veo que cante es la mano, los dedos algo más largos y finos le habrían quedado mejor.
De todas maneras, buen concepto. :D

gracias por tus palabras. El estilo "Mucha" es siempre una gran referencia. Las manos son muy complicadas, tengo que aprender a dibujarlas mejor :)

De nada. Las manos - y los pies - son el dolor de cabeza de todos los que dibujamos, cuesta muchísimo que salgan conseguidas... :D

This is amazing. :) I never had an idea to make something like this, but it's great and you carry it out well.
