Hi there !
I know I've been away for quite a looong time… actually for almost one year.
I went through some pretty hard life times but things got better and I've finally been able to paint again last month :D
So… here's the result : a painting which is meant to be used as posters and flyer backgrounds for my alternative metal band.
It is not as realistic as [url=http://dianae.cgsociety.org/gallery/647004/]the first Syllia painting[/url] since I wanted to go for a more graphical look, something a bit less "fantasy" and more dynamic.
I was in a hurry when I painted this one so some parts may look rushed but I spent quite a long time on the body and bubbles (these almost killed me !), I'd say almost 35 hours went into the painting process. I guess I've never enjoyed painting so much as it meant a lot to me to be able to paint again :)
References used for the body (several ugly grainy snapshots taken with an old cheap 2megapixels camera, self timer mode -_-') and I also googled several images to understand how reflection, light and colours worked on soap bubbles.

Here's where it has already been used : [url=http://www.myspace.com/syllia]Syllia's myspace[/url] (I had not finished the nails and ribbons yet when I made our myspace layout and flyers, I may change these soon)
