Lady of the lake by oloferla Lady of the lake by oloferla
IM very sad to have to put this BIG WATERMARK on my picture..but I have to do that becasue people are steling this picture and using it as their own!!


I know she waits below
Only to rise on command
When she comes for me
She's got my life in her hands
Lady of the lake

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-07-24
Lady of the lake by *oloferla shows skills you don't see every day combined with imagination and a beautiful color scheme. ( Suggested by Foxfires and Featured by kuschelirmel )
I absolutely love this to pieces. The texture in the lily pads really did it for me. Now don't get me wrong, I adore the main focus which is the character model in the picture, but the little things make this piece really stand out.

Like I was saying, the texture in the lily pads is wonderful as well as the ripples in the water and mist through the background.

I am also loving the expression placed on the female characters face..very sly and mysterious. Like she is leading the viewer into a different time and place only known to her. Its a very sensual piece.

Lovely work! Keep it up.

Hello Olof Erla.
This picture is gorgeous!
I may be interested in using it for an e-book cover.
If that is possible (and not awfully expensive), could you please let me know your terms?
I own a tiny publishing company in Denmark.

nice work, Oloferia ! What a shame and a sham that peeps are rippin' this pic from you. It is really an honor and tribute to you that you give credit where credit is due, sourcing your works. That's how it ought'a be but like you said, "...stealing this picture and using it as their own!!"

Anyway, keep up the good work. As a fellow artist, although not in your genre but rather in oils, I do appreciate and enjoy your work a lot !!
firejolt3 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012
Glad I found your site...via a friend...and a some research on my own which led me here. I am a big fan of your work.
one of the things we share in common is the arts. I am a painter but absolutely love what you are doing w/ photo manipulation in the graphic art genre.
something else too and i want you to know my thoughts... you my lady are one of integrity ~ I base that on the fact that i see you give credit to other artists for loaning you pictures so you can do the work you want to do. I find this rare, highly professional and the mark of someone who isn't out there rippin' works off, then trying to make a name for yourself (falsely and undeserving as well !!) Thank you for being who you are....and thank you for sharing your work w/ us all.
by the way....would you please use some phonics to help me learn how to pronounce your name....i haven't a clue. And too, how would i say your last name as well?
I want some of my other artistic friends to know who you are.
