This nymph lived in the cave below with her other cave nymph friends. One day she got curious about the world outside and she climbed up. As soon as the light touched her face she turned to stone. From then on she has served as a warning for other adventurous nymphs.

from the lovely RobynRose RobynRose.deviantart.com
as reference which was a great help.
This deviation used to be the cropped version. I felt the full version needed some work at the time but actually I quite like it the way it is now.
