Fantasy Art: Spring Nymph Violet

Spring Nymph Violet

A friendly spirit of flowers and blooms, Violet the Nymph of Spring

Nymphs are spirits of nature. They often depicted as being beautiful maidens that tend to and craft nature in greek mythology. These spirits usually have various elements of nature in their design that match their environment (forest nymphs might resemble trees or greenry).

This nymph, Violet, is based off the elements of Spring. For her design, I combined greenry (leaves, vines, etc), flowers, deer, and wind chimes, and used various colors of spring.

Originally, I colored her with my chameleon markers, coloring her hair, antlers, and ears with natural colors (tans, browns, and fawn). This version looks alright, but I wanted the character to look more like she was a part of nature. So, I made some changes in photoshop.

Chameleon Marker coloring of Violet. Less flower colors and more natural colors.

For the digital coloring, I changed the colors to match spring violets. I also used a number of layers to add some photos of flowers I took into her design to match with theme of a nymph (a combination of tulips and violets). I used overlay layers to change the flowers colors and shading to match the lighting.

Overall, I had a lot of fun making this drawing, and I think it turned out looking very beautiful.

Spring Nymph

A friendly spirit of spring!🦌⚘

For this sketch, I tried to come up with different characteristics of spring to make up this design. So, I chose a deer, flowers, and wind chimes.

Overall, think this drawing turned out pretty cool.

In the Whisper of Winter

In the Whisper of Winter

A Kirin, an eastern style unicorn, dressed in a winter cloak, walking about the snow covered floor of an old forest.

Goodbye autumn, and welcome Winter. I made this sketch a while back as a farewell to autumn. I focused on drawing something with a sense of elegance and peace. The character in this drawing is based off another Kirin I drew a while back.

Awaken Spring (a Kirin in awe of the first blooms of spring)

The dress in the winter sketch has been redesigned to be longer to be more suitable for the cold and snow. Also, the character is more deer like than the spring sketch (she has hooves instead of paws).

I plan to come back to this sketch and  color it. I’ll post it here when it’s done.

Bewitching Chimera Sketch

Just another Halloween Sketch. She’s a Chimera, composed of several different animals animals and mythical creatures (Deer, Bat, Demon, Antelope, and Dragon). Her Name…Rose.

I plan on coloring some of these sketches soon and adding some more storylines behind RealmLocke, once I get a break from my class projects. Until then, I’m gonna be busy getting my class work done.
