Siren by JessiBeans Siren by JessiBeans
For CHOW #280 on ConceptArt.org
The topic was a Siren - In Greek mythology, the Sirenswere dangerous creatures, portrayed as seductresses who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. More here: [link]

Kind of a redesign - mostly, I wanted to paint sheer black fabric. :)

About 6.5 Hours
Adobe Photoshop CS5 + Intuos 4

Siren by *tattereddreams. Amazing composition and wonderfully soft, precise rendering. ( Suggested by Minato-Kushina and Featured by alicexz )

I love the fact that it isn't blocky or that nothing is overpowering something else in the picture. Your dark colors flow very well and don't take away from the detail. You also don't squish anything to make all of it fit on the paper, you just let it flow off. Very well done, all in all.
