This the sort of thing you were thinking of, Alt?  If so, message me your email (I'm Bard Judith on Facebook still) and I'll send you the full-size image to upload :)  Or steal her straight off my blog.

For you, Altario, no problem.   Let me fresco-ize it and she's all yours.   

My dear sage, I'm sorry to hear that you have few writers at this time.  Vast projects often grow, dwindle, swell, and breathe again, just as many complex organisms do in life.  Santharia still lives, and she will spread and grow again.  (I really must get the Kitkat reading the site, now that she's beginning to be able to create on her own....)

So.... you actually need to integrate pictures you already have, or could you use a new pic?

This is my latest commissioned piece, still a WIP - she happens to be a goddess - and I'm going to ask my client if she'd mind it being posted and used here, without the little extra details (secret codes hidden in the hair and stuff like that).  Maybe we have a Southern Goddess who wants to pose on a giant lily?

Anyhow, if y'all might be interested, I can give her an appropriately Santharian background, like a temple with giant lotuses in the background or something.  Let me know.   XOXOX - Judith

Bravo.  Once again you have knocked the Mad Butterflies out of the playing ring, Seeker.

I still recall the desperate plea straight to my mailbox from a woman who really wanted to know where I had found the mermaid I dissected... in real life...

N.B.   This is the lower stream which feeds Bourshal Lake, known as 'Twinwater'. It has the clean drop and hollowed-out pool which the Bourshalites found perfect for their purposes - creating a weir to hold and breed their captured fresh-fish, mainly.   The upper stream ('Twintears')  is rocky and dramatic, and is mostly composed of impassible (and unusable) series of rapids.

I have studied the marvelous Vardynn map and found the ideal geographic location for this lovely waterfall...if you approve, Seeker...

Some initial suggestions, and a germ of an idea to write a place entry...after so many years.

Clearly this was just another brief Stan Lee cameo....

Um, p.s.  I added the picture to the first post where it was supposed to be.   Now you can all comment and critique a picture you can actually see....

O faithful Seeker, likewise!  The mundane realms have claimed me too long, and the black dog haunted my steps.  But lo, I have shaken off the chains of oppression that bound me to my tasks, and slowly I regain my joy and creativity.  Perchance this land will see me once again...

HUGS!

Oh, fewmets.   That's what I get for staying up past midnight.  (rolleyes) Thank you so much, Alt; I'll fix that when I get home tonight.

I rather like the smaller scale of this waterfall - usable, accessible - and I'm quite drawn the level face of the first rock 'wall'.  In fact, were that a dam, it would be a very well-constructed one, for the rocks to fit together so neatly despite their irregularity.  Although most of us are culturally prejudiced towards squared-off, rectangular ashlars/bricks/blocks, there are in fact precedents for ancient 'irregular' stoneworkings ( that are claimed to be almost irreproducible with modern technology!)  Google 'inca stonework' for the most famous examples.   

 Were there a bit more depth to those rocks,    ;)     I'd be tempted to claim them as a specific dwarven technique for interlocking stone to create mortarless dams, and possibly even write a brief entry to get, ha, my feet wet again.   I suspect there's a weir and maybe the ruins of a very strange little stone mill just 'off-screen' in this illustration

I called this a Fire Giant in its first draft, but it seems to have warped and changed as I worked on it.  

Per Art's half-remembered suggestions (since I can't seem to find the original posting of this), I've redrawn and reworked the painting for:

More crispness and three-dimensionality
More texture
More light and shadow play
Hand-drawn 'flame' texture on the body

I've also added more expression, sparks, and coals.

Can this pic be used for our Fire Giants, or is it too Elemental, Fire Goblin, Fire Spirit - ish now?

I hear you, oh faithful Seeker.  It's been a difficult five years for me, with not nearly enough time or 'awen' for creativity.  However, that should be changing as I step into another new season of my life.    I owe the team an update, but just before bedtime probably isn't the best choice for clarity's sake.  In lieu of which I'll try a quick post to the Artist's Forum for now!  A hug to you and Art,
Judith

Great, I'm being stalked.  Got another 'letter' this morning.  I'd block her, but so far it's remarkably amusing.  Here for your enjoyment:


"My daughter Trina the giant in society islands and her children fish farm whales.  They are to release a percentage of baby whales each batch.  The new babies without adult whales to teach them would not survive in the ocean.  So adult mermaids travel with them teaching them the language of the sea and how to navigate, hunt and survive.  They stay with them for years.  Mermaids can live hundreds of years. I don't know how old whales are when grown up.

Trina is a descendant of Paul Jean Bonean (Bunyan in American) Queen Elizabeth II is her guardian.  If you visit - do not enter their enclosure.  Use the phone on the outer gate."


:D
