Kinaris Picture

Thai mythology tell tales of bird people whose beauty were unsurpassed. They live in a level of 'heaven' and fly to earth to bathe in certain blessed springs. A young prince in one such myths happened upon a group of 'Kinaris' - the female variant of the bird people - and fell in love with one. To keep her from flying away, he stole her wings (which she had taken off briefly to play in the shallows). And that's all I really remember about the story (heh heh heh).

Original sketch = 2hrs [link]
Illustrator Line Art = 5 hrs
Photoshop Painting = 16 hrs

This is a mix between line art (which is true to the orignal temple drawings of the Kinaris) and digital painting. Thought I'd try something new this time.
