.Twillight Priestess. by AlexandraKnickel .Twillight Priestess. by AlexandraKnickel
:icondonotplz: :icondonotplz: :icondonotplz:

2012 EDIT:
Im having an exhibition in june and therefore I overworked it to a more fitting lvl =)

A concept for a larger work that went out of hand and turned into a finished piece now

She is the twillight priestess and it is her duty to keep peace between the forces of good and evil.

Every generation there is one girl choosen or better said cursed to become priestess, therefore she losts her name, her memory, her freedom even her health- her hair turns white and her eyes becomes blind over the time force to see far beyond imagination. She does not ear nor drink or sleep from that day on she is a vessel and the pillar of her realm.

There is much more story about, but I lack the proper english and it just sounds cheesy when I try to translate it anyway I know that her eyes are not totally blind in the painting and that she has a slightly silver look- but that s wanted and part of how I wanted it

The full painting might come somewhen this year or so

.Twillight Priestess. by =Aruyinn is just gorgeous. Her expression and elegance is wonderfully done. The whole composition and color choice is just amazing! ( Suggested by Rita-Ria and Featured by cosmosue )

This is one of the most gorgeously balanced line compositions I've seen outside of Renaissance sculpture. The painting is beautiful, but it's the lines you've worked in that absolutely captivate me. I've no problem whatsoever believing this maiden is the avatar of Balance. Breathtaking.
Thank you.

It should be called Opal Priestess, as she's got opals in her jewellery, by the way this hairdressing is marvelous

The headpeace for the priestess is beautiful. The various bits and pieces that make it up really create a striking look. The expression on her face seems very blank and solemn, which really helps to express her position as priestess and a bit of the loss she has experienced in gaining that position. The interaction between the birds and the dragons in the background really enhances the piece, as if it's some battle between "good" and "evil" that she sees as the priestess. Very well done. :)
