Wheel of Fortune by Procrust Wheel of Fortune by Procrust
Firstly I wanted to draw just blinded and vulgar girl - The Fortune warts and all, fickle and flighty. She may bring luck, I showed it as waterfall with a rainbow, but behind she leaves only desert and decay. But as I was ablaze in the process of drawing I've unexpectedly created the main character of the picture - The Wheel of Fortune, rolling after her. Well that's why I had to hide the face of the Fortune under bandage - to make her minor character!
Well, anyway, I hope you like the whole picture! Thank you!

Your whole gallery is amazing but I especially love this one! The sky is very, as you say, "fickle" looking indeed!! I think even without a title, people can immediately understand the nature of Fortune :D. Your skills are really great! Do you have any guides you enjoyed or recommend to become more comfortable with ps or you just discovered everything on your own?

In Medieval art, The wheel of fortune was a recurring symbol, which was almost always depicted as being controlled by a female representatio of Fate. Typically, she sits at the top (not only indicating that she controls human destiny, but that she enjoys a position far above our own), smiling benignly while men rise and fall. With this painting, it's as if Fate herself has been cast down from her power; she must journey- blinded and vulnerable- through the desert of Misfortune. Also, the cracks on the stone wheel seem to further indicate that her powers are irrevocably broken.
