This is a year old painting that went through at least five different iterations. And after all this time I still have no idea why I felt so compelled to paint this, let alone finish it. I can barely bring myself to say "finished" though, there are still tons of things that could use improvement and fixing, but I don't think I'll be touching this one for the next two months.

Another thing I would like to get out of the way: I know a lot of you will assume I was influenced by Boris Vallejo's "Siren Song" which is not exactly the case.
I got the idea while I was playing Dragon's Dogma... What? I came up with weirder stuff while playing Pong, so don't judge me!
With that said, Vallejo's painting came to mind numerous times while I was working on this, so to some extent, there might be some of his influence here after all.

And lastly, my apologies for the lack of updates. Life has been gradually getting more difficult in the past six months, so being creative has been a distant second on my priority list.

As always, your thoughts, comments, critiques are very welcomed and extremely appreciated.

Oh wow,
How the environment looks in this picture looks beautiful and
Would actually look like a real thing in the world,
Also how the pose is laid out beautifully
Compassion i think it would shout out!
The shading..
My lord,
Is absolutely lovely with the shadowing around the
Flesh of both characters was beautifully laid out,
And the colors shining around both the characters
Make them stand out :),combining lighter colors and
Dark colors in this picture makes it stand out,
Very well planned, and very neatly plus carefully
Planned arpund the whole environment...
Bravo!Bravo!you did a splendid job on this.

On a 1 to 10 Weirdness scale, this is at around 8, but so damn well painted! Weird, but great, if you know what I mean. :XD:
