Water Trail by Etoli Water Trail by Etoli
Aah, I'm very happy with this one. :3

It started out as a matte painting for the master scene in a 3d production I'm working on at school. . .but I thought it looked awefully boring as it was. It needed a story. . . and I just love Pandora and Káluh so much, I had the itch to try a go at painting them without the help of pencil lines. And straight digital painting is hard, I've found! At least, characters without lines were uncomfortable for me at first. I'm so attached to my pencil lines. :p

I was going for an old silk-canvas look with this, and I'm pretty happy with the overall look of it. I'd imagine that might be Pandora's older sister, carrying the water back from the well to water the flock. (what flock?) I haven't come up with a design for what Pandora shepherds yet, so let's pretend that the munchy critters are just out of the scene somewhere. ;)

I like the Pandora character, are you going to up load anything about the story?

Well, I have alot of ideas scribbled down for her, but I'm not sure if I'll load anything up until I write up something cohesive. I'd love to do a short sort of picture story for her, though. :D

Too gorgeous for words. Seriously, you've set a wonderful scene and definitely feels like there is a whole story waiting to unfold here :)
