The Oracle by dahlig The Oracle by dahlig
Done for ImagineFX Hand Painting workshop. You can find it in Issue 16 (I also made the cover for that one) :)

My goal was to create a bold mood without adding too much unnecessary detail.
Painted in Photoshop with some help from Painter. Refs for the pendant and marble (you can see it as a custom brush used for the face marks); light and anatomy studies for the character.

Linen done with a custom made brush consisting of a few lines.

I almost thought it was Ezio from Assasin's Creed for a second... I've been playing too much video games.
