Sea Devil by zumart Sea Devil by zumart
It probably will be the Dark Fairy-tale series. Probably.
Previous was the "Sandman" one.

I find the very storybook-y art direction appealing.

This is incredible. I'm always in awe of your work.
Does the sea devil come from a story, or is she a concept you have?

Gosh, sorry for that late answer! I haven't been here for ages. 

It's more like a concept I have. I'm not really good at storytelling, so I wrote a paragraph about her in my Russian blog. In brief: her monster child was stolen by the king of the firm land and she gone mad and started wrecking ships of that kindom in hopes to find her child. At the time the kingdom was tottering to its fall because of merchant loss and decision to bring back the Devil's child finally dawned upon the king. But it was too late, she completely lost it and she didn't recognize her child. What a sad demise. 

Oh my, sorry for my English, in Russian it sounds much better :crazy:

That's really fantastic! You sound like a very good storyteller to me. Do you draw a lot of concept art like this?

Удивительная работа! Такая живая, такая завораживающая такая... что просто слов не хватает. Как получается так раз за разомпередавать эмоции, ощущения - не представляю! В голове не укладывается!
Можно я распечатаю её и повешу себе на стенку?

Большое спасибо! Мне крайне приятно получить такой отклик! Эмоциональный обмен - одна из главных радостей художника, на мой взгляд. 
Можете распечатать, если хотите, хотя качество скана не очень хорошее. А вообще я собираюсь собрать календарь из графики, когда закончу серию, и напечатать в типографии %)

Успехов! И я бы у себя такой календарь повесила обязательно.

this is absolutely gorgeous! The composition is beautiful, it feels heavy, like it's underwater, but the floating dress and the way he's holding her with his big claws looks so delicate~ I love it!

I was afraid it wouldn't seem like water at all. It was hard to strike a balance between heaviness on the one hand and steamy feeling on the other hand, so I was very happy to read your comment. Thank you! :)

Your work is so fantastic. I was just looking back at the Sandman one today. Such a gorgeous, ethereal quality to this fantasy series, I love it. : D It makes me think of older children's illustrations, from the 19th century.

Ingenious. Especially love the way you drew the scales on the devil like fish scales, & yes this picture does indeed recall great, Gothic children's illustrations like hose Arthur Rackham.

It actually seems to be mimicking Ukiyo-E prints from Japan. Look at the Devil's face and horns.
