This piece is just spectacular!
With the way the water effect shows in the hair is just so realistic.
The shading and lighting is so realistic that the skills needed would need to be just beyond my skills.
I just adore the translucency and emotion put into this piece.
In general just love the small bits of dust and details in the hair!
I personally wish the creator of this piece that it is truly amazing and awe inspiring!
So as I close and my last words are this piece is just amazing to me ^^.
I just simple love it ^^

Is she based off the character in Hamlet with the same name? The one who drowned?
Reply
:iconlachtaube:
Lachtaube Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
The title is inspired by Hamlet's Ophelia, the art itself is based on a dream that I had of white monsters lurking just below the surface of a dirty pond, I just substituted a random Pony character I came up with that also just happened to be white. XD

Thank you so much! :'D I actually HAD a nightmare about something like this, it wasn't a pony, but it was just a white swampy creature just floating like this in really shallow water and it was terrifying ;m;

SO I HAD TO DRAW IT :heart:
Thanks again for your kind words, I really appreciate it!

WOW WOW WOWW!!! this is so freaking awesome. I am really loving how you did the hair in the water details. And how the hooves are faded out yet hold shape! The only thing I would bring attention to is how the right eye seems to be floating off her eyeball due to the shadow effect under it. This pic is freaking awesome. I LOVE this muted color palette. NICE!
