Melusine by Hagge Melusine by Hagge
Based on one of a couple of legends...Short version thereof...melusine...part fey...cursed by her mother for locking her father and his wealth in a mountain...she marries, and tells her husband he can't see her on Saturdays, because she partially turns into a serpent then...

She's portrayed during bath, and I figured more of her serpentine facets would be prominent, then.

I love the atmosphere of personal intimacy and melancholy you've managed to convey. The colours are absolutely perfect.

Thank you. :) This was one of those I could have easily done two versions of, but this seemed best. :D

What alternate route had you considered? (different angle, or whatnot?)

kind of a two thirds frontal with a modest drape...back seemed more logical, though, as far as portrayal and all.

I can see that as well. But I have to say, I do like the back, it has a sort of modest sensuality, and lets you have more of a serpentine curve, IMO.

Thanks, that was part of the appeal for me, too. The muscles of the human body fascinate me...esp. dancer muscles. And body builder muscles are fun for monsters and dragons. ;)

Oh yes. Dancers are fun just to look at. Do you find yourself taking on the pose you're sketching/painting sometimes while you work, too?

No. I only usually do that with hands. I've used my own hands on specific models more than once. :)

Oooh how interesting. I really like this picture, and I think its really intersting how the scales kinda gradually appear instead of them just suddenly being there. I also think that her ears are intersting as well as her claws. Just so much awesome!:heart:
