The scrying mirror by Drakenborg The scrying mirror by Drakenborg
"...for when I look upon the, I see death!"


Scrying is the art of foretelling the future or the unknown by looking into an object.

Photoshop CS
Graphics tablet
some reference used
Original size 3000x4500
X-amount of hours- All painted

(No idea why I put the bottle in her hand...
This is one of those pieces that just evolved as I when along with it...
And I know the mirror is just a small part of the picture yet all I could see as I did her was this...)

de e därför den heter the scrying mirror- en spegel man kan se in i framtiden me- o därför de står "...for when I look upon the, I see death!"
:)
ibland tar de ett par ggr innan man ser allt i en bild :)

very nice. a story telling could create so much with all the little details, the bottle and the photo in the back are a perfect example. really digging this peice the colors, the stripes on the couch, and the woman's outfit scream out so much personality.

Very impressive work. The pose and posture are very good, as well as the angle & lighting. The colors of the furniture, metal, and backgrounds are nicely cooridinated and their detail come out superbly in the picture.

I would very much like to have that couch. :D The woman looks like a friend of mine. Very nice usage of lighting and location. Each deviation you submit is stunningly better than the next. You're wonderful and deserve much praise.

Beautiful. The imagery is startlingly effective, and her eyes tell a tales of gazing into things that mortal eyes should not see.

I f I were to make a crit it would be her right shoulder (left as we look at her). The shading as it emerges from the sleeve looks a little flat to me. But this is only a minor point and it's so much better than anythig I could do that it's not funny.

Well done.

The design is beautiful, as always... :D

It somewhat reminds me of The Ring (the horror movie) and that's just great :D It's one of the best movies ever made, and I believe it's hard to catch a smiliar mood.

Gerat work, once again :)
