Foreshadowing by Saimain Foreshadowing by Saimain
Very old drawing of my character Falen wandering down the halls of Redgate castle. If you look carefully, you'll see something's different about his shadow. ^_^ Redgate knows...

You can learn more about Falen and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: [link]

Probably I could just copy the text "I love all of your pictures!" and put it in a comment under every work you uploaded ^^

at least you have a scanner :D my camera makes my pics look worse DX always tinted some ugly color :P once I get a scanner I'm probably going to redraw my angels so I can scan them in :D but that is a long long time from now D: and this picture looks very nice :) even if your scanner was mean to it XD

the hair on the shadow doesn't match his... right?
Saimain Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2011  Professional General Artist
The shadow with a crown is a "foreshadowing" of his future. :)

Ahhh Redgate... Such a fabulous work of art like this can only make us imagine what else Redgate holds in secret... And we get quite a flavorful taste in the book as well. : ) I'm happy, thank you! =^-^=
I fell in love with The Rover's Cripple and I have searched desperately for the second book for years now... and what's in store for me there. ; )

if this pic is ruined by a scanner, then i don't wanna know how good it is in real...
WolfStar04 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
ooooh i see a crown!
juicyzombie Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2009
This is my favorite of your art, because of the irony the word I am looking for? Well, just the fact that foreshadow is in the shadow...
But also, there is just a lot about this picture that makes you stop and look. I love it.

Crown! He has a crown!>< Or horns..:D But I bet,crown could be more charming;]

I only klicked it because of the shadow :D
I saw it with the first look and THAT is why this is so amazing!
Great work.
You have too much talent for a single person :giggle:

Awww, did I just got spoiled?! Hehe, It's allright, go go Falen!

This draw it's beautiful! I just fall in love with your gallery!!
Urineee Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2007   Traditional Artist
love the lighting... and the picture on the wall. Good stuff!
Timbrewolf823 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
doesn't look either, and it looks really cool! by the way, who's in the pic on the wall?
Kisharu Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2007
Falen's a cute character too~~ ooh...the shadow seems too tell a lot :3 gives a bigger meaning to "foreshadowing" x3
marysia1990 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
but I like that ^_^
jon-hill987 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2006
I see what you mean about the scanner, wouldn't say it has ruined it though, it is still a brilliant picture. It has just lost a bit of the detail, that is all.
chickengirl90 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2006  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
oooo. very nice.
allthatisme Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2005
grr....You disgust me!!! lol. There's something severely wrong withsomeone who can do something like that and claim it looks grainy and chunky. My friend, you could run that picture through a recycling center and it'd still be more impressive than anything I could ever draw!
MegaLisa830 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yep, it's a crown. :D I like Falen's pose and expression. And his sword. And both the walls, the bricks and shading. And the portrait on the wall. And his shadow. :)
black-rose88 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2005
dude, that's so cool! but what's he so scared of?
TNHawke Featured By Owner May 13, 2004
So cool. I love the sword. That's gotta be the archanite, yes? *grin*
Kallasilya Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2004
Whee! Falen's onna marry Shion and be king!...I think...O_o Your website doesn't work on my computer! *pouts* I don't know why! And I only got to about chapter 26 in 'The Rovers Cripple' or the first book... I hate my scanner too...AWESOME PIC! ^_^
misako-kairo Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2004   Photographer
that's so amazing I love the feel of it... and if this is a ruined version of the picture I'd like to see one that isn't cause it would be AMAZING... I love the shadow, and for some reasons I love your weaponry and I don't know why...
nemutai-kunoichi Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2004
Reminds me of that Star Wars poster where Anakin is standing in front, and his shadow is Darth Vader's...

Wow. Awesome pic and skill XD He's wearing a crown!
Kaszia Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2003
Ah, a crown! I was wondering.. *blushes* It's just that when shadows stretch, you can't always work out the original shape. So, has Falen got royal blood? Or will he become a king? I *really* should read the stories, I know. My net time is limited, and I don't have a printer at the moment to print them off. I shall soon though. ^__^ The shading is great, especially tight back in that corner where it's almost black. I like the folds on his cloak, too, I can never manage those. Good job. He looks scared.. and... reluctant? Or is that just me?
animeviolet Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2003
wow, that picture is amazing- such great detail and the perfect shading. nice job!
kishi Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2003
Despite the scanner, you have mad talent O_O; Wow, is all I can say. The detail and the level of shading is excellent, and couple that with the proportions and the mood and overall expression and feeling.. = wow ^_^ +fave!
InstantMadness Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2003
Do you mean the horns on the shadow? I like the texture of the brick wall.
Saimain Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2003  Professional General Artist
It's a crown ^_^
InstantMadness Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2003
Aren't they the same thing?
MistressDementia Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2003
It seems as though he's backed in a corner and has no choice to fight his way out. He doesn't look happy about it...Excellent work
zeruel Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2003
