The Storm Keeper by wolfmorphine The Storm Keeper by wolfmorphine
I have been working on this idea off and on for quite awhile now. It contains two of my least skilled areas of expertise when it comes to artistic depiction.... water, and man-made objects of transportation..... but they are two types of subjects I would really like to get better at. Photos used for helpful reference include one of the lovely ~dani-stock for the goddess and two from ~gothika-stock for the tall ships. Some photo reference found at clipart.com was also used for the ocean to keep myself from going completely crazy.

The subject matter here goes back to my beloved mythological world. I love the idea of people honestly believing real beings cause such things as squalls at sea. This sea goddess keeps the storms contained in her magical amphora and causes squalls at her whim by pouring its contents into the sea itself. When her hair blows in the winds, it causes lightning to flash and thunder to roll.

She is such a beautiful and mighty goddess. I think people relating beings to Gods and Goddesses to nature, is a way of feeling in control or not quite so intimidated by the overall force of nature and how small we really are......

You've definitely done well for not being particularly skilled at it. I couldn't draw water and/or ships to save myself!
It's a beautiful idea too. I've always liked those cute little stories about angels bowling in heaven when there's a storm, and it would be nice to maintain the innocence to believe in sea goddesses.

this manipulation brought a smile to my face as the thought came to my mind no wonder they named hurricanes after women. Your concept is perfect this all has a great balance it has a theme and a story which you have represented in this manipulation I can see this in a book to illistrate a seagoing persons adventure to a far away land. your singnature mist is there the lil blue flags and her hair are blowing in the right direction the detail to this is amazing great job hard work i hope you had fun creating this

Thank you very much! This was challenging for me, as water scenes are not my strength, but I did have a lot of fun with this one. The sea goddess was a joy to paint, and the sky was wonderful fun.

Ha ha... "signature mist". You're right. I can't seem to stay away from the stuff! Just seems like every idea I've been having lately needs a little mist though.
