Panecia by KLSteeleArt Panecia by KLSteeleArt

Okay, the healer is done. Let me take the time to explain a little about my inspiration for this piece. Her look is based off Greek Mythology, obviously with a little twist. In particular, I was inspired by Panacea, the daughter of Asclepius and Epione - healing gods. Panacea has four sisters and two brothers, all who have something to do with some sort of healing or medicinal factors.

"Panacea was said to have a poultice or potion with which she healed the sick. This brought about the concept of the panacea in medicine, a substance meant to cure all diseases. The term is also used figuratively as something intended to completely solve a large, multi-faceted problem."

The color was based off a variety of factors:

"A river in Thrace/Moesia was named after the goddess, and is still known as the river Zlatna Panega (from Greek panakeia)."

"Blue is the color of the spirit, devotion and religious study. It enhances contemplation and prayer. On the other hand, blue's devotion can be to any cause or concept it believes in, including devotion to family or work. Blue is the helper, the rescuer, the friend in need."

"Optimistic and positive, gold adds richness and warmth to everything with which it is associated - it illuminates and enhances other things around it."

Her necklace is made out of gold and turquoise.

"Turquoise encourages inner healing through its ability to enhance empathy and caring. It heightens our intuitive ability and opens the door to spiritual growth. It is the color of the evolved soul."

Woa...Your art is amazing; I did a fine art course a while back and this is just lovely! Really love that you went for an "older, wiser" look rather than "busty, mage stripper".

Loved the note about the Turquoise, there's a lot to learn from earth and it's precious crystals :)!

I can really see why you got the DD for this! It's beautiful work, and you put so much though and detail into every aspect.  I'm especially impressed by the weight you managed to put into everything, the scarf, the bottles, the traps and belts, they all have the true sensation of weight and heft; they aren't just on her body, they're hanging on her body, that is not an easy feeling to put across in artwork. Fabulous job!

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

Hello,

lot of thanks for answering. I understand your decision, and if I'm asking you instead of using your picture without your permission is because I respect artists and I think you have all the rights to decide if someone can use your image or not. I know that this days people just use other pictures without asking, but i don' want to be a simple burglar.

Lot of thanks for your time!!

Best regards!

With Greecian folds it is particularly hard. With her dress, I made the fabric a little more heavy than normal Greencian fabric which is almost like chiffon which does not have bardly any hightlights. With it being heavy it boardlines silk.

I really like the complexity of the character and her look is gorgerous as well. :) I appreciate those who put effort in not only the look but also pay attention to the smallest details and so, the two together show the whole personality. Great job (and wonderful gallery)! :)
