Lady of Compassion by aruarian-dancer Lady of Compassion by aruarian-dancer
"Lady of Compassion" (Remedy) -- line art in biro on paper, colored digitally in Corel Painter on Intuos 3

The finished version of my Lady of Compassion (Remedy) for the art trade with :iconamdhuscias:. ^^ Hope you like it, Greg.
I had "shades of green" planned as requested, but never had the details worked out (as usual), so it took me a little longer than I thought it would take. ^^; It was the lady's costume detail that had me testing colors for a while.

While researching white deer, I stumble upon the information on a herd of them at an army depot in Seneca, NY. They are white, but not albinos with pink eyes. Just their fur is white. Regular deer are quite beautiful, but the white ones in the photos are remarkably beautiful, also. In ancient Japan, deer were considered to be one of the many sacred animals. ^^ I think they fit well in the theme of this painting with their delicate looks and innocent-looking eyes (If you've ever been to Nara Park in Japan, you know that they're not as bashful and innocent as they appear... lol).

When I was planning the line art of the lady, the deer were not originally planned. At one point, there was only one, and in my final, most recent sketch, the mama deer and the baby "appeared". It is interesting how a seed of an idea goes through a transformation as the dooling of the sketch progresses.

EDIT: I had some requests for print of this, so I've uploaded the hi-res file without the watermark for dA's print service. The watermark will NOT appear on the prints you purchase. ^^

This is so beautiful and refreshing. It puts one at peace just gazing at it. I'm from upstate NY and not too far from Seneca. Never saw the white deer but did see an article about them.

Greetings from South Africa! This is such a beautiful painting! Love the various shades of green that give off such spiritual serenity. It is so aptly named because compassion just jumps out of this artwork. The dress is absolutely gorgeous! Look forward to following your artwork.
