This artwork is the newest and last one I will submit in a long time to teh Deviantart community. I will probably be involved in an illustration project and will not be able to submit my artworks before the book I draw for will be published.

Anyway:
This is my probably most detailed work I have ever done.

It took my a month of non stop work, but I am pretty satisfied with the outcome.

It was a commission and the character is copyrighted to Lisa Lassiter. :)

I cannot count how many hours it took me, but well, MANY.
Everything painter, several references used and the fields on the bg are pretty manipped being honest cause I got lazy ;]

Anyway I hope you enjoy the picture, comments are always welcome!

Ps. Want a closeup? go here! [link]

PLEASE READ THE INTRO FIRST
Introduction:
Samael and Eleanzel, both sons of the Night Spirit, were loving brothers, fully comitted to each other as children.
Samael had a lover, a wind goddess Echo, whom he had a son with. Led by envy and secret desire towards his brother's love, Eleanzel has led Samael's suspicions, as the child was not his.
Samael full of faith, believing in his brother, filled with anger has killed his son and his beloved. Soon after has he discovered his lies.
Led by anger and bitterness he lost his sanity, and to kill his own pain, as a revenge to all the men kind, he is now killing all born children, letting everyone suffer as he once did.


***
When the lifeless night forms a black winged wave
And scars my tainted heart with a bleeding mark,
Mountain's sharpened beaks dig my ethereal grave
And I'm spreading my arms, I become it's slave,
I welcome the dark

Frozen phantoms awake from the blazing skies
Piercing their claws through my moldered heart
I'm trying to see them with my riven eyes
But I creep into darkness, where your nations rise
Tearing me apart

Scream's howling neck blinds my vicious brain
I'm a trapped locust with a broken wing
I wield my sceptre of everlasting pain
I sit on a throne marked with lethal stain
As a crownless king

And when I finally spread my anger's disease
Frozen orbits' ashes will perish destroyed
I already feel the end's deadly breeze
And dreaming of the heavenly decease
I'll cry into the void


Technical info:
fully Photoshop7, Painter7, Poser4 for the skeletons, pose refd.
Around 30-40hrs for the painting, around 10 hrs for the poem.

A sketch created mainly for the purpose of practicing lighting turned out to look quite ok, so I ended up finishing it. I had loads of fun painting this one and it went along rather smoothly, too :)

For those of you who read descriptions, here's a link to some screenshots I've taken during painting: [link]

Created fully in Photoshop with a little bit of Painter.

Ok DA was mean to me and fusked my account totally when I tried to upload (and then delete) this pic. Grrr.
Anyway, that's a pic I've done for an art magazine contest (and was one of the winners)...
Fully in Painter, BG(castle) ref'd. :)

EDIT: Ok, about some comments I recieved: this is NOT the image I submitted to the DA FeatureME contest ;)

I did ths picture some time ago, decided to submit it sooner, because it will take part in the Digital Artists Summit Digital Illustration Contest :) Wish me luck!

If you do not know the myth of Eros and Psyche, I propose you try this link: [link]

I hope you like it :) It was definitely the most time consuming project I ever did.

A different style, different tonation, lots of refs used, few dozen hours spent. Heavy Mucha inspirations can be spotted especially in the frame:)

Created fully in Adobe Photoshop :heart:


PS. I uploaded a slightly fixed version~

That's a pic I made a few months ago..
It has no background, as I wanted it to decorate my website (which I plan to work on soon)

Another design of a Fairy I named Firefly.. I think I should write some story for her soon.. :)

Poser, Painter, Photoshop

PS. I didn't chose the mature content option, cause IMO it shouldn't really offend anyone... No critical areas shown XD

***
Absolute - a divine spark of inspiration
Absolute - beyond human control
Absolute - complete, infinite and unconditional

Embraced by Ars, the Artist turns into stone and becomes Ars himself, melting with Her into Unity. Or, maybe, Her touch brings the petrified Artist to life, since he cannot achieve full humanity without Her blessing.
Ars, subtle as She is, has a power over the artist, who is helpless and dependant, although rewarded with a laurel wreath. In his suffering he knows that the golden crown is a burden. As much as he would like to break free, he is not able to escape from this slavery. Alone, he cannot exist, so his soul is riven between pain and happiness, protest and devotion. Only united with Ars he can come to the complete and perfect entity - Absolute.

WOW! That was fast! Thanks to the admins for such a quick acceptance! :heart: :)

The moon sets its blade upon my head
Lighting the depths of my empty soul
I am not alive, neither am I dead
Inside my mind's castle hollow bells toll
But when the wind blows its howling horn
Among the void you will be reborn

And when I feel your life in my veins,
The shattered sun will shed its bloody tear
Entangled by the endless beginning's chains
I'll silently whisper into your ear
That as I was once lifeless and torn
Within you in darkness I will be reborn



Technical info:
This work was done for Epilogue's "Season of Renewal" contest.
I've spent around 25 hours on this. Used tutorials for patterns, inspirations, refs for pose, dead body, studies of G.Burns, as well as the dress pattern from one of my older works... As the work was smaller, you might see some pixelation in a few parts of it, which I'm really sorry about.
Poem written in around 2-3 hours It's not too long but the contest rules forbid writing too long descriptions for pictures, hence the 2 "paragraphs".


This artwork, along with Samael, will be available as a printout, if I will someday miraculously get the prints account :)

PS. Yeah title is from Malice Mizer XD
