Illustration of nymphs dancing in the woods

Personal work: Dance of the Nymphs

My entry for the Art Order’s Nymph challenge. It is digitally painted in Photoshop, on my Wacom Intous 5.

And here is the step by step process. I start by sketching out the characters in my sketchbook, then scan them and pull them into photoshop where I tinker with a composition that I like. When I have found something that works, I begin painting and detailing.
