In ancient mythology the crow is the guardian of ceremonial magic and healing.
Crows are the bringer of messages from the spiritual world, which otherwise would have to dwell beyond the realms of time and space.
"One who has the honor of having a Crow fly by her side, is an individual who has the Role of carrying souls lost in pain, denial, bitterness or ill intent, into the light of forgiveness and self-awareness."

Another collaborative work for my "Fantasio -girls" portfolio.
Model is the beautiful Seffana: Seffana
Reference Photograph from Pascal Abadie: abadie-photo
Brushes and painting technique acquired from DanLuVisiArt
Some Ornaments and stock resources i used for reference:
MouritsaDA-Stock, IanGray, sergeypoluse

The reference Photo from the model was the inspiration to this, while the main intention was to get close to my "wings of steel" kind of work Inspired by Michael Parkes and some Art Nouveau;

Mature Content

Wings of steel by fantasio

Which has set a new landmark for me combining graphical and flat surfaces and also 3 dimensional / Photomanipulation and digital painting to create a composition.
My main focus lies in the composition and flow of the image, the story with the crows has developed around this piece as a happy accident while working on it and it allowed a really uncommon pose and setting between repose and action.

Here some close ups, as per usual;-)

My goodness, the detail is exquisite! Everything from the delicacy of her breast chain to the subtleties of her skin textures and tones. Even her navel has captivating detail! The images of crows in flight in the soft stream of the smoke is underwhelmed at first, but only because of the powerful statement made by the woman herself. It is one of those subtle features that the eye catches only later upon longer inspection, but adds so much more to the theme. The overall image is quite evocative, a setting for many possible imaginative stories. Well done, both in imagery and technique!

Terrific.  The nipple jewelry and chain are sexy and nicely rendered.  Her belly button is so well drawn and sensual.  And her eyes are alluring and dangerous.  Well done.

I love this piece. The colors look great, with her eyes being the same color as the background, and the incorporation of the crow symbology makes this great. I love the effect coming from the fire (the crows coming forth from the fire)
