At the threshold of oblivion by dark-spider At the threshold of oblivion by dark-spider
I'm back after several weeks of hard work :). My third artbook, Forgotten 3, is already finished and ready to be published in a few weeks. It will be published first in Spanish, and other languages will follow. I will keep you updated about it :aww:

About this image, it was done back in 2008 for the artbook Forgotten 2: The Portal of Destiny along with more than 40 images. It belongs to the story "Letters in the darkness", a tale about voodoo, haunted paintings and isolated victorian mansions in New Orleans. It was also featured as the cover of the book.

Two weeks of hard work in Photoshop :).

Forgotten 2 is available for sale in english [link] , german [link] and spanish [link] , and other languages are on the way.

--- VIDEO PROMOTIONAL OF FORGOTTEN --- Now available a video showing several of the artworks from the book series. Check it out to see more artwoks like this one.

I love this piece. I recently bought one of the puzzles with your artwork on it. I wish this one would be available in a puzzle (2000 or 3000 pieces). :)

Okay, I was super excited for a second. The portrait in the corner reminded me of the Picture of Dorian Grey. Thought there might be some Oscar Wilde fanart going on even still, this is beautiful work, and I really love the detail you put into... Well everything xD Especially her dress. Bien hecho!

Critique -
Stellar work. the colors are rich and there is a nice sense of contrast. I'm a sucker for high detail pieces and this certainly has that. This really is top-notch so there isn't much to say in the area of possible improvement. The only thing I can say is that the light source seems slightly ambiguous, but it works well. The lighting seems quite ethereal and dreamy, so if that is what you were going for, well done. If not, it still looks great!

The way his face has a 3D quality gives the "haunted" effect long before the viewer sees the little voodoo doll in the opposite corner. Excellent work.

Letters in the darkness, is that an actual book or something you wrote yourself. If you didn't write it, could you tell me who did and where I can read it? It sounds very interesting and I would like very much to read more about it.
