Salmacis by scubbs Salmacis by scubbs
From Greek Mythology, Salmacis was a naiad who fell in love with Hermaphroditus, the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. I chose the water element for her because the story of her love revolved around the lake/pool she captured him in.

This piece was made for Chronicle 8 : Elements at neosynthesis.net

La la la.

That's just gorgeous. Amazing how well the drawing and the photo of the water mix. And so full of energy, not a typical portrait.

the illustration is incredible by itself neggums.
but what really impresses me is how well you blended the photo into it.
photography and illustration can be a difficult mixed medium to tackle.
but you nailed it girl.
extremely well done!
