Dryade by ~Vilk42. Beautiful use of stock and solid technique make this a very striking image. Makes me want to go for a walk in the local woods to see if I can find one! (

Wonderful imagery. Very powerful.......Did you notice how dragon like the tree is? can you see the dragon's leg and foot just to her left. Rich images lead to seeing more than the whole Congradulations and THANK YOU!!!
Sorry, but it doesn't look like she's coming out of the tree at all! Instead it looks more like she's a ghost where you can see some transparent parts. If her skin looked more like the color of the bark and had some of the tree's pattering on it, it would blend better.
The model was already posed like that (with her legs together at the bottom), I would assume he just faded them out to transparent by using one of a dozen Photoshop (or [insert program here]) methods, most likely by using an eraser set to variable opacity through his tablet's pen pressure. Or maybe just a layer mask with a gradient.
