Written In Light II 924a by Eolhin Written In Light II 924a by Eolhin
A spell cast, light rising like incense smoke

A digital photograph. No manipulations, other then slight filtering to remove grain and a bit of cropping. The hand is mine. Yes, it is in soft focus. I was experimenting to see if that would make the sharpness of the light more dramatic. The effect is photographic though, not digital.

I entered this in ~rickystuffedpie’s Long Exposure Photography Contest. [link]

Edit: I give :iconda-digital: permission to display this in their gallery.

Thanks, and sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have been ill. If you are just looking at the "smoke" part, and drawing it, sure, no problem. I would love to see what you come up with in the end. I just don't want it used in a photo manip, or the like. :)

its just a small part of this drawing: [link]

its WoT fanart.
the Aes Sedai are kind of the wise/strong/classic magicians (but still a bit different, but it are the wizards of WoT) when they channel (that is how its called when they use their magic powers) you can see a glow around them and you can also see the "threads" they "weave"
if you want I'll explain more about this... but be prepared for a long long story.

Nah, I don't even know what WoT stands for... (probably "World of..." something). But I did make some of my threads images with weaving magic in mind. You should take a look at the rest of them. I can tell you how to make them, photographically, if you are interested. All it takes is a camera capable of long exposures, a very dark room, and a little key-chain-type LED light, or a few of them, if you want various colors. :) Oh, and a lot of patience. *L*

*looks at the image* Yes, the threads work well there, and I have no objection. What is interesting is that they are still being used in a way true to the original concept in my image. :) You say in the caption to your image that you want to know where it is going wrong... Well, I can tell you a few things. For one, a woman with a heavy chest like that (the breasts really don't look that bad, by the way, the rest of her just doesn't match them) would have heavy and distinct hips as well, which are completely missing from your drawing. Her waist looks thin, indistinct, and boyish, in which case, she would be flat-chested as well. I like the way you did the neck-line, and that necklace, but the face, chin, and jaw-line are primitive and misshapen by comparison. The hair is good. The hands are a bit small for the rest of her.

I hope that helps any. There are lots of places you can look up to get tips on drawing faces and heads, and there is no shame in tracing from photographs to learn the feel of how a face is shaped. If I am going to post something, I usually try to only trace from my own photographs, so that no one can get upset with me. *L* But there is lots of stock on DA is that is specifically listed as stock, and I am sure you could find faces and body shapes there to trace in order to improve your feel for faces.

WoT stands for "Wheel of Time" its a series of fantasy novels written by Robert Jordan. If you like epic fantasy stories, this is surely a must to read! I can tell you its by far the most epic fantasy series ever made, the thing I like A LOT is that Jordan wrote it in a way you can really live in into the characters! you can really FEEL like them, at least... more than with other books.

thanks ^^ I'm practicing a lot with faces, and better breasts (they didn't mean to be so...BIG >.>;)I often draw bigger faces if you follow anatomy but I think its nicer and more cartoony.
the shading/lightning is COMPLETELY wrong to <.<

This is gorgeous! Has a very magical feeling to it. :D My friend tried this once with a lighter, but the effect doesn't come anywhere near this. :D

Thank you. :) Yes, this is one of the best I have done, with light painting. I used a little key chain LED light hung from a black thread. That worked rather well, much less dangerous then a lighter! :)

Ah. Sounds interesting. And yes, much less dangerous. That friend of mine is kooky. :giggle:
