Nyi Roro Kidul by Dionyssius Nyi Roro Kidul by Dionyssius
This is my submission for "urban legend" contest held by *Lisajen-stock
:boogie:
:confused: Ugh.. I just read about her contest several days ago, I really hope I still have time for this submission :fear:

This work is based on the story of "Nyi Roro Kidul" or Lady of Southern Sea, a very famous legend in Indonesia, esp in the traditional beliefs.
She is the goddess of southern coastline. According to some believers, she rode chariot that sounds like splashing water but sometimes it also sounds like Santa's bell.
You could find a more detailed story here
[link] :nod:

This work took me about 4-5 days on and off. The toughest part was the hair... yes the hairs (at the lady and the horses) are making me crazy since I don't have any Wacom or tablet. I used a low-dpi mouse instead :steaming:
Another thing about this work is that I combine photomanipulation and digital matte painting. Two things that I love the most :love:
I know maybe she is not as freaky as other urban legend submitted for the contest, but her presence is very much alive nowadays and is being praised by some traditional believers in Indonesia.
