Hey guys :) Here's my version of Lady of the Lake by Karol Rudyk. I wanted to play with green shadows and yellow highlights which turned more into yellowish skin tone. It was very complicated bust to paint, more like 3 busts in 1. The sword was a challenge - I wanted to create a fantasy wet look, inspired by works of KAHA Katarzyna Górska. Taking good photos of this giant was a hard task.

Big thanks to Paweł Kukiełczyński, Krzysztof Kobalczyk and Lukas Zaba for all the support and great feedback :)

    This captures the essence of your painting as I see it. You’re always doing a very complex dance with simple elements. I love this one.

      Thank you, Mateusz. I had a lot of space to fill so I wanted to add the details all around to make the bust work from most angles and to keep it interesting.
