Tree Nymph by DNA-1 Tree Nymph by DNA-1
From an art test I did a while back. This of course is the flipside to the gruff, blocky ogre character: a lithe and sexy forest spirit. She's pretty much his polar opposite. We've all seen a million dryads, so my goal here was to come up with something different and unique. There are 3 or 4 touches here that I don't think I've seen on a dryad concept before, but I'll let you be the judge.

From the same series:

Lovely design, I really like the face design, I'm not sure the overly shiney bits may need a tone down.

Was testing an exaggerated type of rendering, but sure, what you're saying makes sense.

It's just personal taste. Artists like Genzoman and Robaato do this all the time, but perhaps it works better w/ a more cartoony approach to faces.

Totally, I follow Genzoman for his use of extreme colours and his clean style and compositions :) I must check Robaato out, thanks for the tip!

Nice one again.

However I nit pick some points which bothers me.

First shade of green. If it is in game's color pick I have nothing to say. In current state her green parts(and her staff's) feels like plastic. If they were on a darker shade, like the one at the bottom of the staff, it would look more natural.

Secondly while I like the idea of mask, this mask looks too timid. Well she looks so tame for a forest spirit. Maybe it is just me but I prefer more wilder, rough look on creatures of nature. Oh while talking about things of nature if it were up to me I would make barks on her pelvis area smaller.

Over all idea and concept is as lovely as all your works.

I don't think I've ever seen you draw barefoot girls, you shoud do more.
Apart from trying to increase the good art related to a fetish of mine, I like the concept of the cherry blossoms and of the shifting colors of the figure. Really cool.

Oooh - very cool look here with the gradient transition throughout her body. Really nice look overall indeed, and the wood textures are a nice touch! They look quite real.

Mission accomplished! It's not often that I see a female plant character and don't immediately draw a line to old Ms. Isley, but this one certainly is a unique take on the idea! Love that bark armor!

I love the mask also having vines hold the bark on her lower legs as armor. But my favorite detail would have to be the little thorns on her vine staff: not enough to be stand out vicious but enough that you notice they're there.

Glad to hear it! Wanted her to look soft and pretty--but also strong and dangerous. A rose with thorns.
