CALYPSO by MichelleHoefener CALYPSO by MichelleHoefener
Calypso, enchantress of the sea

I wanted to explore the use of photo reference with this piece to achieve a more realistic look. I haven't worked with photo reference for a very long time, and I wanted to try it out again. I was happy with the results of the experiment ^___^. I named her Calypso after the ocean goddess in mythology.

This piece is featured in Ballistic's Exotique 3. You can find out more about Exotique 3 here: [link]

I did a sister painting to this piece entitled Moonrise In Spring:



- Some photo reference was used
- Photoshop CS

CALYPSO by *Michelle84 is jaw dropping gorgeous. The colors are amazing and the composition really helps to bring out the beautiful character. Stunning details! ( Suggested by Tsukihana and Featured by cosmosue )

My favorite part of this is how one of the fish is coming straight out of her hand :heart:
