A friend of mine asked me if I could paint a nymph for her..so I started working on it...I finished the background, but now I've been stuck for weeks not knowing where to actually put the nymph..
I was thinking about putting a patch of ground in the bottom left corner, with a tree growing slightly to the left to create some boundary there; and then putting the nymph there, still half in the water en pulling herself out of it or something...but my problem is what to do with the bottom and right bottom corner, the water leads the viewer out of the image and I think I need to close this off.
So basically I dunno how to continue composition-wise, it's been ages since I've painted, and this is the first time that I paint something digitally.
Could anybody here give me some advice? It's ok to use my image and add comment on it if you want!
Sorry that I cant help with the placement of the nymph, I just wanted to comment on how cool the background looks. Very dark, mystical, and the silhouetted trees are very striking. The best thing you could do now would be to try sketching the rest in very roughly, and picking the version you like best.
