herbalist by vesner herbalist by vesner
This series is really growing on me. Starting to have problems deciding what to paint next. On the list of my favourites are myomancer (divination by using mice), demonologist, alchemist and scryer (divination by using crystal balls). For now I'm trying to avoid the hydro- and pyromancer. Too obvious. What do you think? What would you like to see next?

I absolutely adore these! The details and unusual take on how the skulls are deformed is really satisfying to look at. I think its due to not just your excellent painting skills but how fresh everything feels - Great imagination.

If you ever return to this series I'd love to see what you do with Myomancer (didn't even know that was a thing).

This is easily your masterpiece. Were I you, I would offer this as your first submission to every group, to every person who ever asks to perceive your art, because the soul sings like this only once a singularity.

What sentiment were you attempting to capture within this piece?

Hydromancer, Pyromancer, and Cyromancer should be used.

Hmm,  Supererogation would be cool. It's an act of payment beyond what is due or asked. Something a little different.

Keep up the good work!!!

I'd like to suggest something with the element earth? Don't know if someone has suggested that ;)
It would be interesting to see the skull crumble into a pile of dirt, or something along those lines..

I know you did the geomancer, but I considered that something else. Geology, right? ;)
Ps: How about someone who has f*ucked up using scripture or old books?

DEMONOLOGIST, it has to be the wierdest or scariest so get it out of the way and focus on the others to make them more creative

For a challenge, there's tyromancy - the divination by watching cheese curdle, or tasseography, which works by the patters of tea leaves, coffee grounds, or the patterns milk makes when poured into coffee.

But there are also lepimages who specialize in pulling bunnies out of hats! :P

Another awesome piece! I'm really curious about the following ones of that series.
Alchemist sounds interesting.
How about
Myrmomancy - divination by observing the movement and behavior of ants
Catoptromancy - divination with mirrors
Ailuromancy - divination by observing the movemenr and behavior of cats
Augury - divination by observing the movemenr and behavior of birds?

I'll consider the augury. I think I have an idea for it. Thank you!

Thank you! I've talked with someone a few comments below about technomancy already - interesting idea but I still haven't come up with anything original. Optimus' Prime skull? :P

:iconjoetheone:
Joetheone Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
you are welcome :)
And what if instead of Optimus you draw something like Legion from mass effect, but with more living tissue than syntetics?
or piston shaped muscles on the limbs, for example!

link of a possible idea:

Yeah, I was just joking but it kinda shows the problem - a robotic skull is made. It doesn't happen suddenly and cause death. I want to avoid the simple replacement of living tissue with mechanics because that's been done quite a few times already. I'm really excited about the technomancer idea but alas I'm still searching ;)

:iconjoetheone:
Joetheone Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
ok, I'll keep pumping ideas then :XD:
I searched and found concepts on H.R. Giger, The lazarus Experiment from Dr. Who, Halo 4 [Promethean knights], and the anime episode of iron man the technovore.
In some other concepts, search for "tetsuo, the bullet man".
Let me know if you get a hold on something so I can focus there ;p
(If I'm allowed to participate, of course) =)
