Please do NOT use my artwork without my permission, Thank you!

This one is inspired by so very very sad anime Elfen Lied. She is the main character Lucy/Nyuu. I have done it with watercolors and if you want to know my tecnique, you should go see a tutorial I made of this pic. There you go: [link] I hope it'll help!

I was just going to rewatch Elfenlied and saw this on here. What a coincidence! =)
This is simpy beautiful. The background is stunning. I love the shadow falling from here, like the doom she brings.
Great work!

That thing you're doing with the hair?  All those cool shapes?  Yeah, that's what I'm usually TRYING to do.  The difference is you succeed at it.

Beautiful piece!  I also love the textures and the visual flow.

nice piece...makes me think of what Gustav Klimt would make if he was a manga artist ;p

Thank you! Actually the anime Elfen Lied has very clearly Klimt-inspired opening so I wanted to keep that same feeling for this fanart piece :)

Would you kindly give me the permission to share it on TumblRRRRRRR, ma'am. Of course, linking to this page and crediting only you alone? There is little good fan art of Elfen Lied and your's is really outstanding and I want more people to see this one.
