Lady of the Lake Gwent Card by DanielaIvanova Lady of the Lake Gwent Card by DanielaIvanova
My entry for Project Red's Gwent card contest. You can cast your vote for it here: www.playgwent.com/en/art-conte…

Painted in Photoshop, lost count of the hours.

I'm an absolute crazy fan of The Witcher III game so this was an amazing opportunity to draw some fanart of my favourite game. Unfortunately, we were restricted to characters that had not been already depicted as cards so there wasn't a huge choice, mainly secondary characters, but I do like the aquatic theme of The Lady of the Lake. It was very fun to paint an underwater scene.
I did end up repainting a lot of the elements and given more time I would have probably repainted even more, but I think it's time to let go and move on to other projects. 

I'd ask you to wish me luck but there is something better you can do - there will be a community vote between April 13 and 27th on the community forum, I will link it then, where you can give me a vote. 

Hope you enjoy the painting, looking forward to your feedback!

This is gorgeous - I love her pose and how the only part of her disturbing the surface is the tip of a finger. The detail of the reflection and the shadows of the water against her skin are incredible. The angle of perspective, the way she's leaning back and her serene face all make her look at peace with the water, but the way she grips the sword makes her also seem dangerous. Very, very cool.

Oh I am so happy - You're so talented. It's unbelievable to me that you painted this in Photoshop. I was showing all my friends because of how I excited I was about it. It really stuck in my mind. I've never even played any of the Witcher games. By the way, my friends agreed - your work is actually incredible.

I love this piece! The composition, pose and colours are great and I really appreciate seeing a non-sexualised depiction of the character :)

Thank you! That was indeed one of my goals. She is rather sexualized in the games but I think in the card game she should be more modest :D

This is...just...insane.  I'm struck damn near speechless.  The attention to detail is phenomenal.  The water reflections on the skin and sand, colors reflecting on the skin, the markings on the sword...honestly, I could just stare at this for hours and still find more and more wonder.  This is fantastic and I absolutely love it.

I looked at your gallery after you commented on my piece, and i really think this one is awesome :D I can imagine how complicated painting the water, the hair and the lights must have been. Really great job! La la la la

WOW!! Fantastic art piece!! I am totally in agreement about the light reflections on the skin as well as the lake floor AND the girls reflection on the top of the water!! The lily pads are beautifully done with the veins, the elements in the pictures are so proportional to the scene, the contrast and colour blending are wonderfully done. KUDOS!!

Yes...it was touch and go, he had some fever and headache they couldn't identify, but finally settled on Legionella Pneumonia and with the right antibiotics and treatment, he as ok to leave a week later. It was scary, especially after the February "episode". Thank you! :tighthug:

"Lady of the Lake Gwent Card by DanielaIvanova is a breathtaking underwater scene that combines power and beauty."

Damn, I had planned to suggest this after the contest was over but couldn't due to health issues; tonight I started writing the suggestion note, only to find out this masterpiece already received its well-deserved DD while I was in hospital. :D Congratulations!
