Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-13
Iteru by ~SpaceWeaver. ~Poopgoblyn said: "I thought the illustration was spot on in it's design, and execution. He preserved the mystical and mythological elements nicely with a complex and very godlike design for the goddess. Without focusing too much on contrast, everything seems to blend very naturally". = AdigunPolack said: "In "Iteru", ~SpaceWeaver has successfully captured all the lush sacredness and wonder of Egypt most amazingly in its overall execution, making this one a thing of such sacred beauty with the magic of the sands that this picture so brilliantly represents! And, the details (from the dunes, to the character design and clothing, and to the very grains of sand that are sprinkled from that person's hands to create the land as well) as well as the captivating use of cool-to-warm colors are simply an incredible sight to for us to behold and be blown away by... this is quite an outstanding piece of work by the artist and it clearly shows!!!". *majcy92 said: "A wonderful work, full of details and with an amazing scene". (Suggested by ~Poopgoblyn , =AdigunPolack and *majcy92) ( Featured by Atramina )

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
This, however, is its own tale. This right here is art at its best. Interpretation through image, you just feel it.

Extraordinary drawing... Definitely packs a powerful ancient Egyptian punch :D Anyways, I see that there are two (three?) constellations on the night sky that resembles Orion... Did you draw those based on the constellation's correlation with the Giza complex? :)

Really, thanks very much for sharing your drawing! :clap:

Thank you very much for your comment, actually, the stars were painted with absolute uncorrelation, but you make me think I could have been more precise about it, this would have been great !

I see... i really thought it's Orion (especially the one on top of the Pharaoh's head). The constellation at the right side of his head also quite similar to Canis Major near Orion, hence my conclusion :aww: But if it is, it'll be quite strange since the Orion's belt is missing its third star :)

It's a wonderful but perhaps fated coincidence ;)

Même si ça fait un peu Stargate sur les bords XD

Il y a tout!
La coiffe des pharaons, car sans Nil, pas d'Egypte, et pas de pharaons
Les motifs de fleurs, et les entrelacs, représentant l'eau
Est-ce que le rouge de la cape représente le désert?
Par contre, j'ai pas trop compris l'oeil dans le cercle!

Non, vraiment, j'adooooore!

Amazing colouring and shading. That's how the ancient Egypt and other cultures can be characterized: mysterious, beautiful and astonishing. I like mythology and the ancient because of that. Great overall idea. I take it to my fav's.

It is rare that I find myself completely clueless about a figure from any form of mythology, especially egyptian. Looking at this, I'm not only clueless, I'm awestruck.
