Bionic Dryad | Digital Painting by Raederle

Bionic Dryad

July through September 2009
by Raederle Phoenix

I change my mind a lot when I'm drawing.

I start out with one idea, which becomes another and then another and then another. Usually artists only show our finished artwork... However, this piece when through so many idea changes that I thought it might be interesting to share. I also learned a lot about what not to do when painting this.

Creating Bionic Dryad was a lot of fun, which I hope you can see in this video of its transformation:

Thanks for stopping by.

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
