Hello everybody,
here's my latest submission. It all came up with my desire to wall something with a huge swan. And Swan lake themed wall was perfect for that. The worst part didn't surprisingly include the walling but it was the scan. I just couldn't find a proper scan for such a wall, because I needed a kneeling girl with closed eyes, bending backward and she had to suit the theme. Then - finally - I got it.

Majority of the wall is painted, I added just some slight vectors. I spent most of the time with the background, since I couldn't make my mind what to do and tried various elements till I ended with this one. Oh, and the reeds are supposed to be transparent, so that's not a mistake.

Used scan: Click
Time: about four days
Listening: Massive Attack and Tchaikovsky's Swan lake, of course:)

Hope you like it and enjoy,

    I love the soft way you've blended the colours, especially on the swan's wings. Great job extending the scan of the girl as well, though I think her leg is a bit too shiny (it kinda looks satiny like her dress rather than skin)

    *___* its way toooo different from the scan.
    the emotion of the character really changed.
    i really love the theme and concept. A mystical and elegant one. and like maple rose said, i love as well how you extend the character. It turns out to gracefully. Also just that the legs were too shiny. or its just her socks?

    but anyway, i love it to the max! superb job!
    instant +fav!<3

    Simply gorgeous... I can't find the words to describe how much I love this... this masterpiece. Its atmosphere is unique, both serene and intriguing, and (maybe it's just me) I love the kind of "bond" that you can feel between the girl and the swan. Many, many thanks for sharing!

    The swan is Wonderful - Perfect ^-^
    But the gilr should have blond hair... but I think then it wouldn't look that good anymore :))
