The Summoner by Iardacil The Summoner by Iardacil
While on the hills
The fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burned at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
The stars are out and the magic is here…
Many stars were forgotten
Many faded and became ghosts
Still my sisters glittered down from heaven
Always there when I needed them most…

Blackmore's Night - Fires At Midnight

This is for for catching my 6000th pageview.. Sorry it took so long time.. I hope you are happy with it.. And go and see his gallery has there is just so many stunning works...

This work has had many working titles as I have worked with it.. Many, many weeks.. first the idea was "Storm bringer.." but somehow it changed.. (I thought after I found out that there is no way I am going to be over that light coming from up in the model) .. then it became "In the eye of storm" inspired from Engima's song lyrics... But as my little sister said to me - it looked too much religious.. (I hope looks less now..) So, for quite long time it just stand on my desktop and waited.. (end of the exams.. I said to myself..) Today I just.. decided to end it.. i just cannot concentrate on studying, I know.. And here is the final version.. (There were some ghost but before submitting I decided to remove them..)

So, please, enjoy the powerful colors of nature.. the world of magic and mystic... The world where you can never know what happens..

Stock:
Model: *BlackPrincesBride (She has removed her stock but I got her permission.. So sad.. I loved her stock and the model was really inspiring.. the last title has quite much affected by the title the picture had - "for sister sun" (Or something similar.. it reminded me the Blackmore's Night song..)
Hair Brushes: TammySue
Background: Combined with 6 or 7 different stock photo from [link]

I have seen this image used all over the net. Often as someones avatar or as their image rather than their own personal picture. I am glad to finally see who the artist is! Wonderful work. :D

It is used a lot! I have seen it as myspace images (rather than using a personal picture/photo for your main image) and on keen.com and many psychic places.

Here is an example...

It gets hard to keep track of stuff when online. People sadly act like it is free for any use when it is on here.

Your work is amazing with interesting light effects. But I must say there is a hard shadow missing under the hair on her chest.
