The witch... A character often included in Medieval Fantasy stories. She's a seer of past and future events.

You see an old, mysterious woman reading her crystal ball...

A sad prophecy is told of a romance between a young noblewoman and a poor yet sweet peasant man; they will fall in love but their love cannot be. She is to marry a prince! Regardless they will be married in secret under the rays of a warm summer sun. He promises her a free, adventurous life elsewhere; away from all the expectations weighing on her shoulders.

Soon after the marriage he will be boarding a ship in search for different lands, a quiet place to bring his new bride and live happily ever after. But alas, the ship gets caught in a storm at sea, killing all of the crew not sparing our poor peasant man. There'll be talk in the town, about men washing up on shore after their ship got wrecked in a thunderstorm. Townspeople will bury the men.

Our young noblewoman shall learn of the news eavesdropping on the streets. She has to hide her grief until nighttime because she cannot have anyone see her visit the graves. The only way for her to visit the final resting place of her beloved husband will be by sneaking out of her castle and finding her way under moonlight. From then on she will have to carry her grief all alone for the rest of her life.

It's amazing how you made the arms hold the crystal ball, and what's even cooler is that the "extra" parts at the bottom of the actual character's arms look like a flowing cape that drifts as the character breathes.

Also, the blue and eerie lighting from her crystal ball was done beautifully!

I would not be surprised if this one gets top 3 or even wins.

Thank you! :D Love how you describe it like "as the character breathes", I hadn't looked at it that way but I see it too now that you mention it.

As for the top-3. If I ever had a chance to win an official contest, this is the one. But there's at least 2 entries that I am worried of losing to. ๐Ÿ˜… So, fingers crossed! ๐Ÿคž

Now that you make me think of it, I have seen it done similarly on eyhoffi's viking, but I only realize that now after making the skin. ๐Ÿ˜…

Thanks anyway. ๐Ÿ˜

Not a big fan of the back, but the front of the skin is actually incredible.

Thank you ๐Ÿ˜ making three scenes on such a limited canvas is doomed to look a bit wonky. ๐Ÿ˜… I'm glad you like the front, perhaps I should do an alt where the prophecy isn't shown on the back.

When I first saw the skin I thought it was some sort of a pixel painting on a skin! Great story but sad. Love the crystal ball and ship on your skin!

Well I guess it's some sort of pixel painting, except it represents visions. ๐Ÿ˜… And a sad prophecy indeed, I guess that's why seers are often portrayed as bad guys. ๐Ÿ˜…

Thanks for the compliments!
