Curses by FrancescaPoliti Curses by FrancescaPoliti
Fr. Amorth (Padre Amorth in italian) - former president and currently honorary president of the International Association of Exorcists - once said that "blessings nullify curses. So let's bless in our heart if someone has cursed us."
That's what I do usually, here I just wanted to show like the arrival of somebody curse on their victim, even at far distance...
Of course all symbols are totally by imagination and don't mean anything :D (studied ideograms years ago).
lol I hope I didn't "write" anything offensive by accident in some unknown languages :ashamed:

I wish this amazing image was available in 4k, because this small size here does not do the image any justices. I like how the tentacles blend with the ground - and of course I like the small details like the writing on the woman's arms and all over the tentacles. Judging by your initial comment the woman is being befallen by a curse, but from the image it almost looks as if she is the one to dispatch curses onto others. Regardless of that: amazing work!

Aww thank you very much :)
I keep it "small" online to discourage any kind of theft/copy (even if maybe it's not enough, sometimes).
But of course I've more than 5k version in my pc, the higher is the resolution one works to the better it is. ^^
Yeah I know what you mean, the first impression is like she's putting a spell, to be honest a 20% of that impression is not meant lol, I noticed it only after a couple of days of work.
But then I kept it on purpose, to lead the eye on her, then to details, then to what those cloudy shapes really are, to question viewer mind... to make realize the misreading when happens, 'cause often the curses work just making their victim "looking" evil, or outcasts, wicked, sick and even possessed.
So being "cursed" isn't always a pure 100% passive victim appearance. It's also something dark within ourselves that becomes unleashed and out of control.
But, definitely, I could have expressed more clearly the concept with a more simple composition. :)

I just hope to improve in future. Thank You very much for your feedback. :hug:

You are more than welcome! Also you have a point in everything you wrote. The artwork is really exceptional - especially considering the explanation you offered. Thank you very much for letting me see /  read it :).

Furthermore I totally agree in regards to theft/copying - I browse ebay quite often and encounter all sorts of printed "wall-scrolls" and the likes with images that I am sure the seller did not make themselves. One time I even sent the seller a PM asking them to not sell a particular image as they do not own it (I sort-of knew the person who drew it and I was sure that it was not her, who was selling it).

Would it be perhaps possible to buy that in a higher resolution though? I would really like to have a ~4k version (since I have a 4k monitor), but it is alright if you do not want to sell it - it's your decision :).

Best regards,
Igor / dS.

Thanks to You for your constructive critique (which is something I look for to improve) :hug:
I saw a lot of artists giving up beacuse of art theft, but also many others trying to message to those "thiefs" around: sometimes they are just not aware of copyright rules, they enjoy the picture and use it without knowing they should at least just ask to the artist (as a netiquette rule at least)... other times they don't reply at all and the path then lead to legal consequences.
It's sad because it would be easier for them just to ask to or inform the artist they are uploading a work of theirs, I'm sure 60% of artists would agree for just a proper credit.
Then yeah there are colossal cases of real theft, with a person putting their name on another aritst work: that's disgusting. But a wise eye would recognize quickly if someone is stealing art or not, it's enough to follow their style across their portfolio, thiefs have not a personal style, just a bunch of different and disconnected pictures.

I am gonna send a personal note to you to talk about an higher res version. (;

Visualmente e dinamicamente bellissimo grazie anche agli effetti che esplodono intorno al soggetto maledetto :devilish: Exorsist puke ! Le vie fuori dagli schemi son sempre interessanti e qui ci sei riuscita in pieno. Lo sai, più strani gli fai meglio è!! Il particolare che mi piace son le mani già così perfette!!......Io sono amante della "cosa" di Carpenter...così tra me pensavo che ci saresti anche potuta andare più pesante: allungandole ancora un pò di più e facendole più grandi ma sempre nei limiti del buon gusto...In ogni caso puoi tenerne conto per prossimi lavori........visto che ste robe spaccano!
Tra l'altro rosso e nero son due toni sempre potenti se uniti bene insieme!
Continua su questa via perchè è l'unica per svecchiare sti lavori. Altro non c'è da dire mi sembra.
Ciao ciao :wave:

In tutti i film di ultima generazione horror, ormai i grafici hanno delle abilità impressionanti del disarticolare i soggetti o a deformarli come vogliono!

grazie Draake :)
oooh la Cosa di Carpenter è un capolavorissimo :eager:
Andarci più pesante ci ho pensato ma volevo mantenere le dimensioni della foto originale e spacchi di profondità in prospettiva, non coprendo tutto il paesaggio. ^^
Poi in realtà non sono "creature" o "mostri", sono insiemi di (brutte) parole :giggle: Non volevo dar loro più massa di quanto necessitassero, o sarei scivolata nei "mostri", appunto.
Però sì, come concept, andarci pesante sarebbe stato fico :nod: molto più horror, molto più concentrato sull'immaginazione oscura (mazza che ho detto lol, suona uscito da star wars XD ).
Grazie mille ancora :highfive:
