Ophelia by SayuriMVRomei Ophelia by SayuriMVRomei
Ophelia's Death (...'cause it wasn't suicide, it was an accident!!) from the play "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare
I wanted to portray a drowning Ophelia, a trapped girl who's struggling to get out of the water (and of her madness), not the already dead one we usually see....
Lasso tool, art nouveau style (again:giggle:)

Othello is probably my favorite Shakespeare play ever.

This is amazing, and I think it fits Ophelia's state of mind well!

Fantastic job!

That's my favorite Sheakspeare (sp) play. Very depressing though. Everyone dies... What the hell?!

C'est tragique mais superbe ! Effectivement, sur ce dessin on voit bien que ce n'est pas un suicide, alors que les tableaux d'Ophélie montrent toujours un visage serein, là ce n'est vraiment pas le cas. C'est très beau, et les couleurs bleu/vert figurent l'eau qui n'est pourtant pas représentée. Belle pièce !

E che ti dico? Il solito! E la scelta della cornice Art Nouveau, poi... vado in delirio solo a sentir parlare di Mucha&Co.! ^^ Bellissimo (mi piace la scelta di non rappresentare la solita "salma" che galleggia: brava!). :iconcheerplz:

You're welcome!
Do you know the old folk song, "My Darling Clementine?" If you're not familiar with it, she drowned, too. The song implies that she was murdered by the singer.
