A tree nymph drawing

I have an idea for a new illustration...

I was trying to channel some emotions and ideas... and this is a rough sketch of what I came up with. I'm not really used to doing this kind of personal work... thanks to Christina for suggesting I try.

I made a really mess sketch (as I usually do haha).

Themes behind this: 

  • fragility
  • recapturing something you feel you lost
  • release and loss - a feeling of part of you escaping
  • life - and how new plants grow out of an old nurse tree stump - kind of mimics life, and how new things grow upon older experiences and memories
  • feeling like you're in a cocoon or a shell, and are afraid to break free.

If I manage to finish everything I have planned to do today, I might sit down and begin to paint this. I feel something I haven't felt in a while... Inspiration

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my sketch, and if you think there's anything I should add or change. :)


  1. I love that you feel inspiration again!
    And the message behind the painting is great, it comes from your heart and i think thatll keep you going :D
    be sure to post some wip photos sooon! <3

    1. Thanks Christina! I am very inspired by your idea of doing a collection, with a theme and title that inspires you. I often feel all over the place with my ideas, and it would be nice to focus it all into a collection of some sort.

      I will post wip as soon as I have some work done, haha!
