Daughter Of Darkness by cemac Daughter Of Darkness by cemac
Coral McBride - - - Do not alter or use without my permission.

Tisiphone is one of the three Furies from Greek legend who were said to be the daughters of Darkness and of Gaea, the Earth as a goddess. The Furies lived in the underworld and ascended to earth to pursue the wicked.
There are two versions of their birth, the second being that as Uranus, the tyrannical God of the Heavens lay mortally wounded by his son Cronus, the three Erinyes (Furies) emerged from the earth soaked with his blood. They were Magaera, the jealous one, Alecto, unceasing in anger and Tisiphone, the avenger of murder.

This artwork is a modern interpretation of a Greek legend and the setting is All Hallow's Eve.

Edit: 16/11/10 - Fixed hair above fringe, right lower side of cross, shadow beneath skeletons leg.

Edit: 12/06/11 - Changed the colour of the sky, also the light in the sky and from buildings, brightened moon and the area on the statue behind Tisiphone as there are 3 light sources. Repainted and reshaped face, eyes, nose and mouth, repainted hair, added hilights, changed colour of jacket, and boots. Lightened the fur on the cat in the foreground.

To me Tisiphone represents justifiable revenge, which I strongly agree with :nod: After your lovely comment, if the boots were mine, I would give them to you :D

The very slight reds you've incorporated here are beautiful, it shows a really nice contrast. In terms of composition you did a great job too, from the model your eyes lead towards the city behind her and then you come to notice the birds and the statues, carefully faded into the background. Great eye, great idea!

Thank you for noticing and understanding what I intended regarding the composition. It makes creating and spending more time than I should worthwhile. You insightful comments are very much appreciated. :heart.

Being a perfectionist is stressful :( After I finish an artwork, if I say "I could have done better" then I haven't tried hard enough but if I say "I should have done better", then I can live with this for a while because I don't have enough knowledge to do better. So far I have fully repainted two artworks and many more to go, which shows that I am learning and that gives me great satisfaction. :heart:

.....satisfying? What about frustrating, stressful, time consuming and OMG?
I am constantly amazed by the difference one tiny line in the correct place at the correct angle can make. When it is finished, then comes the satisfying :D

Thank you :hug: I think the holiday did me good and I am trying to make it more my own by painting the majority of it. I think most of us do this as it is a natural progression as we learn. The only problem is it takes so much longer :nod: :heart:
