La Vouivre by AlexandraVBach La Vouivre by AlexandraVBach

La vouivre, half-woman, half-snake (or dragon) has been part of french folklore for centuries, and of course, I had to represent one ^^ The word itself Vouivre comes from latin ‘vipera’ meaning snake, or serpent. She is known for wearing a magnificent ruby stone on her forehead and protecting it fiercely from men’s greed.
Legend say that she killed anyone who tried to steal it, so would you dare ?


Since I started doing photomanipulation I’d longed for illustrating one, but it was a bit complex. However I think I did the legend justice J

Thanks so much to the stock providers :

I used two different models from Shutterstock.com
Red Acorn branches and trees are from kuschelirmel-stock
Skull by www.deviantart.com/art/SKull-p…
Frog by moonglowlilly.deviantart.com/a…

Hands down, this is my favorite mermaid I've seen on deviantART. Those colors and muting some tones to enhance her feature... Glorious :wow:

You have her listed as a mermaid, but she looks a lot more like a lamia or naga to me.
