Hydra Nights by Faei Hydra Nights by Faei
I just started painting something random when working on some strict little graphical projects which really tend to kill your imagination. No complainin anyway. :)

I think there's a dramatic step between Firefly ([link]) and this one.

And the evolution for this piece: [link]

Thanks folks. :)

edit: Over thousand messages to go thru, and subscription just ran out. Got a DD, thanks everyone! :)

Take a ride on the high seas, but be careful for things may be lurking in the shadows! Hydra Nights by *Faei is a wonderful example of how sometimes the subjects that are not so predominate can be the whole meaning behind the creation. ( Suggested by Taka-san and Featured by WhenPigsFry )

Aivan ihanaa jälkeä! En olekaan ennen nähnyt tällaista tyyliä, todella nättiä ja eläväistä! Värimaailma on rakastettavaa, ja - no - kaikki kuvassa (tai itse asiassa kaikissa niissä kuvissa joita olen jo tuijotellut, ajattelin kommentoida aluksi yleisesti profiilisivulle, mutta sitten iskit Moo-kuvassa linkin tähän kuvaan ja nyt.. no, tässä tulos : D) on juuri erittäin todella hienoa, eikä ainakaan oma silmäni erota mitään virheitä (jostain syystä tykkään etsiä juuri niitä usein, tai ne etsiytyvät silmiini...)

Aivan upeita töitä sinulla! Pakko klikkailla hieman nappuloita, ei voi enää mitään~ Kuvasi todella jollain tapaa iskevät juuri jonnekin tuonne mielen perukoille siten, että niitä on pakko ihaillen kuolata : D

Availepa toki sitä piirto-ohjelmaa useammankin kerran! Töitäsi on todella miellyttävää katsella ^^

I have absolutely no idea what to say about your work, because it has all already been said, I've no doubt. This piece just captures the heart of the observer and takes them somewhere...magical...mystical...a dream. I bow down before your skill...

Wow, just wow. This is one of the best paintings i've seen on deviantart for a while. It has such great detail, it's just perfect! Looks like you put a lot of time into this, well done! :+fav:

PS: Just curious, could I have a look at the PSD file? I'm trying to learn how to paint and I really would die to see how you did some of those color adjustments.
