Artwork Description

Alkonost is divine entity, a half-woman, half-bird creature, the bird of dawn, grief and sorrow in Slavic mythology. Alkonost descends to the earth from the heaven to fascinate people with her singing. Alkonost is singing about death, calm and mercy. However, for mortals the bird is dangerous. Hearing her sweet voice, men will forget all they know and wish, follow her blindly, and die.
Poser (character head), Photoshop and Painter.

Larissa, I am so happy, that I clicked on that dumbnail - it looks SO GREAT. Love the background and the tree - but she herself is STUNNING. Keep on!

You are so talented! I've seen your work at another site, and have just fallen in love with your art!! This piece is exceptional in detail! The hair alone fabulous, but the feathers are just life-like! I only wish you would do more tutorials!! You are an inspiration to many of us that are in the learning process....
