Rusalka by daekazu Rusalka by daekazu
"I like full moon and cool water..."

Welcome to weekly art challenge - a small project by
:icondaekazu: and :iconmidnighttea7:
in which we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a week to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the other side is going to come up with ;]

This week's topic is =MidnightTea7's brainchild and it's simple: draw a rusalka.

Rusalka ([link]) also known as boginka, is a Slavic water demon. Technically, they are spirits of young, unmarried women that drowned or got drowned, mostly due to love-related issues.Often they are portrayed as young, beautiful women with pale skin, strange, glowing eyes and fair or green hair that were perpetually wet (if they dried, rusalka could die).They are a playful lot that likes games, dances and songs, but thay aren't demons of the nicest kind: they hunt young men and children, whom they could drown, suffocate or... tickle to death!

Photoshop CS, Wacom and references.
Designed also for game cards for my friend.

I hope you will like it! :heart:

Czyżby poza zainspirowana grą "Wiedźmin" - [link] ;)? Świetna praca, od dawna w moich favoritach, ale dopiero teraz tak mi się skojarzyła:)

lubię takie klimaty, świetna mroczna kolorystyka.. kojarzy mi się z baśniami Kraszewskiego. Łudząco przypomina farbę. :)

Да, в наших старых русских сказках русалка -- демонический персонаж. Но переводится на английский как mermaid.
