Dryad

8/27/2006 Dryad pencil and photoshop This is my version of a dryad. Traditionally, dryads are a type of nymph, or female tree spirit, of the oak tree. My version has at least a male form and not an elongated human figure. This dryad is of the same race as Spectros, though of a higher status. I'm pleased with the costume - the tunic of sorts have a faerie pattern on them, though it's probably hard to see at this size. It'll become more apparent in future images. I also colored this differently than past photoshop images - I emphasized the pencil drawing more here. I'm rather fond of the textual result.

Very pretty and neat concept! No one else reads the descriptions do they? The way I understood it his arms were SUPPOSED to be elongated. *shrugs* Anyway, I like the textural effect too, and the way the trees are amost creating a tunnel behind him. Definately reminds me of something straight out of a fairy tale.

very nice picture,the only thing "wrong" that I see is his right arm is a little too long.His elbow would be where the rob changes color witch makes his forearm about 3' long.Other than that a very well done picture.Keep up the great work
