The Fortune Teller by jerry8448 The Fortune Teller by jerry8448
~o~ The Fortune Teller ~o~

Full view please

This is a remake of an older picture I did back in early 2008. The other version was horrible and I took it out of my dA gallery after only a few weeks, but I liked the idea enough to give it another chance.

This time I did a black and white version before coloring it, which was new to me. I also spent a lot more time than usual working on details and textures. The result is quite a departure from my usual style, though I guess that's not a bad thing.

As usual I can upload some steps if anyone is interested.
The background wallpaper texture is from ~aleeka-stock

Enjoy,
~Jeremiah :)

The only thing Iwould change would be to give her more mystirious sight like she was watching you from under the hood. To make it a bit scary...
But it's really good for me, especially the colours and light.

Thank you very much. I feel honored, but I very rarely paint portraits and I can hardly handle the deviation stacks coming in from other clubs already. I hope you understand. - Your portraits are fabulous btw! :)

Wonderful piece Jer (if you don't mind me calling you that :giggle: )
Masterly use of lighting, which I'm sure isn't easy to do.
Great expression in her face too.

The steps are in my scraps. I'm not sure they'll be of any help to you though, is I didn't start from skratch with this picture.

She's definitely exuding a great mystical aura, and it's cute that she's so youthful and even has freckles (even if most are washed out by the scrying light). You did a gorgeous detailing job on her face especially. I'm glad you fixed it up and put it back.

I'm impressed! Way to go, your "usual" or not. She's watching you watch her, which is both creepy and accurate. I like her eyes, very pretty color.

You should upload some miracle steps telling people how to paint a remotely decent piece! :P

This is such a good piece. Different to your other work, I love it ;D

I think its just a sign of improvement. The old paintings are no longer up to our current standards. We're getting better! ;)
