Lake Goddess - Janna by darkautism Lake Goddess - Janna by darkautism
special thanks to Everlastings

Little Story:


In Zaun, there once was a lake called Kautism, which was the largest lake in the country. The lake was surrounded by mountains, and the landscapes there were enchanting. Transportation might not be very convenient there, and travelling merchants only came here once in a season. Thus, the villagers traded aquatic products, lumber and crops for other commodities, such as toys made of wood, glittering earrings, or a baseball, which was the boys' favorate item, for almost every boy there dreamed of joining "Zaun Youth Baseball", and I was no exception.

Waving my ax, I wasn't chopping firewood; instead, I was practising swinging the bat. I did this every day, and as a result, I never chopped enough wood to trade for a baseball, while Trundle, who lived next door, always boasting about his golden baseball bat, saying that it was a very expensive birthday present from his godfather, who worked in Riot. Well, that was none of my fucking business, and even with a sparkling bat, he still played dreadfully. Why didn't he sell that bat and gave his big fat ugly nose a
plastic operation instead of trolling every game?


Thinking of Trundle's gleeful sneer, I was so furious that I over exerted my power and lost my grip. "Shit!" I could do nothing but watch the ax flying out of my hand, heading toward the lake in a perfect parabolic curve, and hitting the surface with a beautiful splash.


Wow! I guessed I was not far from perfect, and next time I certainlly would hit a home run! But, first, I needed to scoop my ax up from the lake...


Rolling up my trousers, I walked slowly toward the center of the lake and immediately found that I should have just stripped off my clothes because the lake was so very deep, and if I wanted to retrieve my ax, I definitely would have to dive underwater. In order not to wet my clothes, I went ashore to get myself undressed so that my dear mommy wouldn't find out that I wasn't doing my duty again. "I might be even more handsome without the clothes. Guess I should be worrying about mermaids falling in love with me. Ha!" And speak of the devil...

The surface of the lake began to glow and bubble, and soon there came a hurricane. "What the fuck!" I stumbled backwards and tripped over my own clothes. Wind howled and lightning flashed. I was stunned by the sight before me and too shocked to move my trembling legs. Or maybe I should say that I was so brave that I didn't run away from this strange scene.


When I was on the verge of wetting my pants (though I was naked), the wind finally ceased, and in the center of the past storm stood a young lady who wore almost nothing but her underwear, with only a thin layer of chiffon flowing gracefully at her thighs. She must have come from a rich family because there was neil polish on her toe neils and a green tiara on her head. However, in her gloved hand was a coal-black trident with three terrible red eyes, which made her look kind of intimidating.


"Which is the ax you lost, the golden one or the silver one?" asked the lady with such a sweet smile on her delicate face.


"Um...?" Well, I had to admit that I wasn't paying attention to her words. There was something even more attractive than her melodious voice.


"Which is the ax you lost, the golden one or the silver one?" She asked again, and this time there was irritation and impatience in her tone.


Oh, wasn't this the famouse Aesop's fable, Mercury and the Woodman? I remembered that the bard who came with the travelling merchants once sang this at the fair, and as long as I answered honestly as the woodman did in the tale, I would be rewarded both the golden and silver axes!



"No, no, no. Neither is my ax." I couldn't stop myself from smiling
stupidly because this lady (or goddess?) was going to give me those axes! Wow! I would be able to buy as many baseballs as I liked! "The ax I lost was just an ordinary ax." I repeated the correct answer from the story slowly and clearly, making sure that the goddess wouldn't mishear it.


"So, you ARE the dimwitted donkey..." Her lips curled into a cruel smile.


"Huh...?"


The goddess lifted her trident lazily but gracefully, and there suddenly came swirls of icy wind and blinging lightning... God! Wasn't she supposed to give me some axes as a reward of my honesty?


"Never throw your ax into Lake Kautism, or the goddess with a temper as unpredictable as the winds will confiscate your ax and teach you a painful lesson." -- by the fourth stick of Zaun Youth Baseball

I rly like your drawing of Janna, but actually I have my problems with the BG, tbh.
It feels like you put her on a random picture that has no connection to her. If we take a look at Janna she is drawn pretty detailled and smoothly. The BG, however, seems rough compared to Janna. There are a lot strokes all over the landscape, (which is not bad at all! I'm pretty sure it would look awesome without Janna on top of it) whereas Janna's body got huge areas with gentle colours filling them out.
The stroked landscape looks more or less fierce and untamed.
Last thing I don't like THAT much about this is the perspective. You look at the landscape from above and it seems rather far away. (I think that's why you didnt do it detailled) But Janna is right in front of our eyes, looks like she is floating all over the scene, kinda jumping out of the picture.
Nevertheless I like Janna and the landscape, but not merged into one picture.
It's only my opinion though.
