Captive by DjamilaKnopf Captive by DjamilaKnopf
This thing went through many, many changes during the creation process.
I want to explore more surreal and dreamlike themes in my work. There can be so much magic found in mundane things. You don't necessarily need elf ears and armour to create anything fantastical. :)

If you're courious about the process, I have a few WIPs on my Instagram account.

You can support my personal project PHANTASMA and get rewards with each new illustration.

+ step-by-step walkthroughs
+ layered .psd-files
+ artwork in high resolution

I agree, you can achieve mystical effects with humble human as a model as well! Amazing work :heart:
Funny thing, I was dreaming of moths this night :D

Great! Something about the texture look of this picture mixed with everything makes it feel extra expressive

Thank you! One of my main goals was getting a bit looser and more spontaneous. Experimenting with textures was so much fun. I'm glad you like it!

Sooo pretty, those colours! I know what you mean about the magic in mundane things and it's really cool to see you leaning this way. There's a lot of magic getting overlooked out there!
