"I am life... I am magick..."

Update: I lightened the image a bit a lot of people were seeing it darker than intended.


This is Isis (Isset, Aset), the Egyptian Goddess of Magick and Life.

The goddess Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, the goddess of the Overarching Sky. Isis was born on the first day between the first years of creation, and was adored by her human followers.

Isis was called the Mother of Life, but she was also known as the Crone of Death. Her immense powers earned her the titles of "The Giver of Life" and "Goddess of Magic". Her best known story illustrates why she is simultaneously known as a creation goddess and a goddess of destruction.

Many of her priests and priestesses officiating at her cult rituals throughout its entire history. By the Greco/Roman era, many of them were healers, and were said to have many other special powers, including dream interpretation and the ability to control the weather, which they did by braiding or not combing their hair.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

you used a bamboo tablet right? how did you do the cool sparkle effect at the finger tips? i have been trying to learn that for a long time and haven't quite mastered it. I really would appreciate you assistance because your really talented[link]

Sorry in advance for this but I am terrible at explanations ^_^
Its real easy... The way I do it is by picking the color I wanna use for the "magic" or "sparkles" and draw a few lines (thin ones) from the fingertips showing motion. Then I use Gaussian blur to blur them (I usually do that (The motion lines) 2-3 times until it looks like I don't wanna pull my hair out, each time playing with the capacity of Gaussian Blur so its different). When I am content with the way it looks I use the same color and use the brush in Color Dodge Mode. There I just have the brush capacity around 35-45 and the flow as well and draw dots to follow the blurred motion lines where I think it looks good... Some times I add white in the sparkles as well to make it look even more sparkly. I have the capacity low so the dots are not all the same, you can make some lighter than others and blah blah...
I'm rambling... But yeah that's the jest of it XD

That vivid red pops! She's so lively yet reserved at the same time. Love how she's tossing the magic as she passes. I'd actually love to make a 3d model of that dress too....... So inspiring.
