The Oracle by `blackeri(Deviant ID)

Artist's Comments

Done for ImagineFX Hand Painting workshop. You can find it in Issue 16 (I also made the cover for that one)

My goal was to create a bold mood without adding too much unnecessary detail.
Painted in Photoshop with some help from Painter. Refs for the pendant and marble (you can see it as a custom brush used for the face marks); light and anatomy studies for the character.

Linen done with a custom made brush consisting of a few lines.

I like the depth of the shadows used. The attention paid to facial detail, was also very much liked. The fabric leaving the face partially exposed, was a really nice touch.

wow. i love the detail on the fabric, its almost like i can feel the texture of it. the ruddiness of the cheek is also a nice touch. I don't really think oracle when i see it though.....more like a witch, like the ones from macbeth, although the 3 witches did foretell the future, but they did it with a bit of deceit. Greyfalkin I come!

Wow Geo, you never cease to amaze me with ur dragons. Anyways, I love the shade and just the whole realism of the picture. The fact that you can barely see here eyes makes it all the more mysterious. I love it. though it's still not as good as madea
