:new: I fixed the anatomy errors and will be re-uploading the print. Enjoy!

For =windfalcon's Names of Galway Contest.

We were to pick a name of a random place in Galway and draw what came to mind. From the depths of my subconscious came this image, a blend of inspirations probably from Ritualists in Guild Wars: Factions:, the creepy holly-tattooed chick from Fatal Frame 3, and the long lost fantasy novel of mine that had a blind oracle in it whose eyes were cut out by a mage hunter and whose hair was long and silvery.

Sometimes I worry about my string of mental associations.

I was browsing through my favorites, making a couple of folders and just wanted to say this is still one of my favorites - it's such a different direction that your usual style and so beautifully executed at the same time! Amazing energy in it.

Thanks Erika! I've been trying to replicate this style, but nothing ever comes close to the success of this first try at 'batik' pattern layering. There's just something about blind oracles that lend themselves so well to this mode. I'm going to keep experimenting and see what happens. Glad you enjoyed this:)

The use of the reddish inking in this piece really makes it pop against the blue and silver coloring. Almost makes me think of a print (like the kind you make with a printing machine, lol).

I've heard the word 'batik' for this one a lot too. Makes me want to try and actually make an image this style behind instead of digitally.

My thoughts on batik is that it's good if you're really open-minded about the way the end product will look... it's suprisingly not the most precise thing in the world.
