This is Marsha, Queen of the Marsh.
It's a commission work for =timing2.

She is a slug-girl living in the Great Marshes in the world of Felarya. I tried to represent that she is really huge and also a bit shy, because she thinks she is not very pretty with her plain brown slug-hide. Other slug-girls are more beautiful, with pretty patterns and eye-catching colorations. Although quite large, there are still a few slug-girls around who are even bigger - none, however, are near her territory.

In this scene, a small group of adventurers has encountered Marsha. Apparently, they are quite knowledgeable about her area of the swamp, so the leader is attempting to explain to Marsha the group's intentions. Unlike many large predators in Felarya, Marsha can be approached in relative safety, as long as you know what to say and what to avoid saying.

Check out =timing2 s stories to learn more about Marsha and her friends.

Wow incredible piece yet again detail is incredible and I can almost even feel the emotions of the adventurers as they wait while that one among them tries to speak up to her. perhaps a bit of impatience as they wait to see what happens and if he knows what he's doing? Or even just a bit of curiosity? Well that aside this is another well done picture and I am highly impressed with the detail you put into this.

That's a really great picture!
I especially love the beautifully drawn background and even the small people on the ground have a lot of details! And there is even a lizard hidden in one corner :)
Hehe, I would love to hear what those people on the ground might say :D

This is one of the best environments I have ever seen drawn. I take it landscape is more your specialty than characters?

Well, it is.
I can see that you're working your way up. I expect mastering faces to be a challenge for you, but it'll certainly be doable.

thank you so much for your comment! i note that most illustration about Felarya are more in a stylized "manga-like" ,which i guess is far from my own style -im glad people enjoy anyway! to be honest i didnt realized how many people write and draw about Felarya- im (positivly)overwhelmed by all the feedback ! :)

Yea, the main creator use manga style in his drawings, so people tends to follow his style (or maybe just because it's a very common style xD )
It might look different, but I think it makes it even better.
It's nice to see the same universe develop in many different ways :)

Amazing! It certainly gives a perspective on what it would be like to encounter such a giant being. And Marsha's facial expression is appropriately attentive and noncommital. Anything could still happen. This is one of the more realistic pictures I've seen, and the effect is great.

As for the background, it's fantastic. It certainly feels like a swamp. The water is very well done, and the sense of dampness, wet plant growth... There's an atmosphere to the place, with the diffuse light giving it a slightly magic feel. I also like your attention to detail - the birds or insects flitting here and there.
