The Magistra by TomasBj The Magistra by TomasBj
Slight updates and entered into the Digital Art Fantasy Soul Magic contest: digital-art-fantasy.deviantart…
Edit: Guess I should update it here that the DAF Soul Magic contest is over and this piece came second! :)

My entry to the Art Order - Ghost From My Past challenge. Naturally inspired by Jeff Easley's The Magister.

Painted with Corel Painter. I took really too much time with this. The female form and skin is so difficult and this was the first time painting this. Spending time painting her I think the composition could have been better. Especially with the placing of the skeletons.

Next up a bit simpler paintings and maybe some studies...

Edit: Forgot to mention! This stock used as a drawing reference for the pose of the female: senshistock.deviantart.com/art….

Jotenkin tästä tulevat mieleen 1600-luvun kirkkomaalaukset - ne, joissa on maailmanloppu meneillään.

Upeita yksityiskohtia ja tyylikästä valon/varjon käyttöä. Jessus. :)

Kiitos paljon! Tällaiset synkemmät teemat jostain syystä vetoavat minuun :) 1600 luvun kirkkomaalaukset eivät ole tietoisesti tähän vaikuttaneet, mutta pitäisi varmaan katsastaa niitä jossain :)

Sen sijaan 80-90 luvun fantasia kuvitukset, kuten vaikkapa Jeff Easleyn ja Todd Lockwoodin työt ovat kyllä ehdottomasti vaikutteita ja inspiraation lähteitä. Tämähän tein Easley tribuuttijuttuun.

Tässäkin tulee mieleen vähän paranneltavia juttuja näin lähes vuoden takaa ja voi olla että teen tästä vielä pikkaisen fiksatun version.

Eipä sitä välillä tiedä, mistä ne vaikutteet uivat itse kunkin töihin :D. Itse tein vuosi takaperin pienen keraamisen pirun, josta veljeni huomautti heti, että se on hyvin vahvasti ottanut vaikutteita Simbergin sarvipäistä. Itse luulin tavoitelleeni vanhojen kansantarinoiden pirulaisia. Mutta pakkohan se oli myöntää, kun tekelettäni katselin, että lempitaiteilijan apinoinniksihan se oli mennyt. Minkäs teet. :)

Se on toki totta ja toisaalta jostakinhan ne vaikutteetkin ovat vaikutteensa ottaneet :)

Usually not, it has to be made especially for the contest, after it has been announced, so I don't get why they accept works made before that.. Nevertheless it's a great piece of art and very well done!

Actually when I first added this to DA and to the group they suggested entering the contest. I didn't because I planned doing another work. However I didnt't have the time and entered this one.
