Fantastic! The birth of a dryad?

amazing work Oscar!

thanks very much, Lucas, Geoffrey and Anna... a dryad? it could be, but my intention was to work with XIX's inspiration and the illustrations to old books. This is more magical than other drawings of XL series, and very different, too.

Absolutely suggestive and magical indeed!! The extra vertical space adds a wonderful sense of drama too!

After looking through your portfolio and seeing which of your works I've not previously promoted and/or commented on, I really like this piece, Óscar! … and, I'd like to thank you for supporting my work as well. Personally, I think one of the best features of S6 is the opportunity we are given to encourage our talented comrades. Just wanted to let you know how much I really admire both your art and your consistent support and kindness towards fellow artists! Instead of thanking you personally in my work's comment box, thought I'd do it in yours. ;-) I apologize for this comment being a form letter format… It's important to me to say thank you, and there are many people whose wonderful work I wish to promote (in a short period of time) as a tangible way of showing my appreciation.

Beautiful, Óscar! It's hard to tell if she's already emerging or just settling in but the feeling of transformation is very strong.

Thanks Angelo, yes, the vertical format works fine in this case. Oh thanks Wayne, to me, the people is the main reason to stay here, there are many interesting artist in S6. I was out of visual art world a lot of years (from 1994 to 2011) and now, I enjoy to share it with a lot of talent people.

Thanks Heather. It is complex. Emerging, caught, born, etc... I am happy to obtain that feeling of freedom, although they are inside of those unshaped and organic forms. And obtaining beauty from the monster!!!

Such beautiful work, Óscar! Really impressive!

This is full of anticipation, Oscar...which is delightful! Her emergence is nearly breath-taking and you've captured that moment of wonder. Also, I'm in awe of the reaching points, as if to the light for energy, and I'm mesmerized by the rooted hair the becomes her entangled 'cocoon'. I'm wanting her to be as beautiful as her bum, once she is revealed.

Beautiful ♥

Thanks very much Deepti and GaleStorm, I appreciate your support!, Galestorm your comment is very interesting and I thank you for this deep analysis. In my opinion, her beauty is inside our mind, she is part of an unshaped structure, and she is expecting to be born in our minds. This is the magic of the art, and you know a lot of this (your work has a lot of this magic) :-)

To dive deep into it, let it go and be free....really transformatory feel to it. I love how the lines get light and playful towards the top...into the big white horizon, ready to be whatever she wants (it) to be.

uhmm, interesting comment, "...into the big white horizon, ready to be whatever she wants..." I agree with you. Thanks very much Iris for your kind comment!!
