A friend of mine painted this in GIMP. Enjoy.

Nice!

I like the green "Poison Ivy" lipstick. ;)

Woah, that's amazing! Was that a digital painting or a photo editing/painting? Because it's just so realistic that I'm honestly having trouble being able to tell. Just gorgeous!

Digital painting. Some images of DDO dryads were used for reference but it was painted from scratch.

That's kinda like complimenting a chef on the pots and pans he used to cook a meal. :p


Your friend does amazing work, scoob.

Nice Work! I’m really liking the attention to detail in the plant additions. The only critique I have to add is: He should work in at least 1920*1080. Part of the fun with work like this is zooming in to find all the little details that the artist added in! :)

Not really. With art, it’s not just the technical skill of the artist, it’s also the mastery of the medium. In the old days, (This amazing era oft referred to as “The late 90’s”) using GIMP was a bit like trying to paint an 8"x10" sheet of paper with a paint roller.
