Epimeliad by Brett2DBean Epimeliad by Brett2DBean
The Epimeliads (or Epimelides) hail from a group of numerous and extremely diverse greek creatures known as nymphs. Nymphs are nature spirits that are connected to a certain creature, place, or even element. They can often be found in valleys, forest groves or beside quiet lakes or streams acting as the guardians of the animals and plants around them.

The Epimeliads , like most nymphs, are depicted as beautiful young women. They are a type of nymph known as the Dryad and are specifically the protectors of apple trees and sheep. When in the form of a young woman the Epimeliad's hair is reportedly pure white, like apple blossoms or lambs wool. They are extremely shy, and have the ability to shape shift quickly from human to apple tree when mortals are close, making a glimpse of them a rarity.

This is beautiful dude, I love the background, it feels so alive and natural and yet has an almost urban look to it. The nymph herself is gorgeous, I love her posture as well as her shape, she casts a really interesting silhouette.

Thanks Frsty. I'll have tutorials soon ;) Your stuff is getting there. It's just practice, keep pushing and it'll all fit together like some ginormous heart wrenching puzzle (that keeps getting bigger....and bigger....and)
