Wild Rose II by dark-spider Wild Rose II by dark-spider
A very re-worked version of an old picture that I also have here in DA [link] . I was not satisfied at all with the old version, so I repaint most of it to publish it on Forgotten.

The picture shows a ghost story, too long to post here. But you can read it here: [link]

No print available, sorry. But it's for sale as poster if you're interested :) [link]

I read your poem, and I'm a little bit confused. Did she kill her lover and he is buried with her? Or is she some vengeful spirit who kills unfaithful lovers?

well... I cannot answer you, sorry ^^. Since this story belongs to my book it will be a big spoiler to tell you about what happens in the story :). I just can say that you're not totally wrong with any of the options ;)

I really like how when you re-worked this you made the colors darker and more somber. It really adds to the drama of the piece, and drama lends itself well to Macabre and Horror. Really nice job! It's gorgeous and haunting!

I'm always analyzing your pictures carefully to learn coloring like that myself. I come to the conclusion that it's actually not that hard, most of it is knowing where to set a course and knowing which color goes where. You enjoy my respect for doing it so well, I still have much to learn.

Sincerely, I prefer the old version. It's more soft... The new version has higher definition, but it's looking like a...


...photomanipulation.

dark-spider Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010
It's not a photomanipulation, it was done exactly the same way as the other version. Indeed it was just a retouched version, painted from beggining to end. I think this version is improved, the other one has a lot of mistakes, but that's a question of tastes :).

OK - read the story, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, I submit that there is more power in the lover's hand than the story suggests. The curious should Google "Mandrake," "Main de Gloire," and/or the good 'ol "Hand of Glory." The clues in the picture suggest that the bloody blade is not from taking the lovers life (the soil of the grave is undisturbed - there is ivy growing over it!) - but just perhaps from the grisly work of the taking of her own murderer's hand - the hand that took her life. Dark magic here - powerful stuff indeed!

I think your picture tells a better story than the story!

Thanks for your invitation, but I don't think I will post this one in your group. I did this painting far before VF published her first book, so it's not influenced by her in any way :).
