The Dryad Queen by MCKrauss The Dryad Queen by MCKrauss
Back to playing in the woods. Can't help myself, the forest is incredibly green and lush, and I'm in it quite often! Thanks so much for your support, past and present. I truly appreciate it! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone!!!

You go against the grain wonderfully; instead of having her clothed in queenly raiment, she sits upon a stump clothed only with a few leaves. Her face isn't beautiful, too strong for that, but it is attractive and her calm, serious expression denote a queen who does not take her duties lightly. The beams of light streaming though must be sunlight which means she is in a very deep part of the forest. If she were not in that scene, the woods would look most sinister but her quiet serenity and watchfulness give a protective aura to the scene. I think she avoids humans and no charming European operetta will be written about her meeting some gentle and handsome village lad.

Thank you so very much for such a thoughtful, in-depth comment. I spent so much time on this one, the setting, the mood, the dryad queen herself. I'm glad that my intent came across in the artwork.

33 hours of work? Impressive, and it certainly paid off, the light effects are fascinating and create a great atmosphere enhanced by the nice color tones.
A very clean and beautiful render, as it is the case with your other works.

Thank you very much. I think it took so long because I altered many of the textures, even reworking some of them. I also built up an atmosphere, so it was definitely one of my more complex creations.
