The Darkest Illusion

By Saimain
110K Views
An Illusionist (a creature who can bend light and shadows to its will) is tormenting Prince Luke, and has just pinned his best friend and servant Danathen to the door. It now keeps Luke back so he cannot determine if what he's seeing is real or all in his mind... Drawn back in 2005, but I finally got a better scan of it to post. My scanner wasn't all that great back then. XD

You can learn more about Luke, Danny and the "Not All Kings Wear Gold" storyline here: [link]

I love how you can see through the Illusionist where it's holding him. Can't quite explain it, but it just does something for the picture. Kind makes the whole concept of "Is it reality or illusion?" strike home.

Lovely and thoughtful.

This is beautiful. Your pencil work is just as amazing as the paintings! So sorry for the random attack of favourites to your art with no comments; I figured I'd add an extra large comment here to compensate ^^;

Ooo!!! I love the way you use the pencil. Beautiful shading xDD
okso, i don't know how to say this without sounding creepy, but this has been one of my favorites of yours for a long time. I used to browse elfwood occasionally a couple years back, and when i stumbled across this (and some of your other work) i totally loved it. i saw one of your pieces featured today, and immediately recognized the style as yours. really good stuff. i digg your style.
