Summon the Reaper by Ironshod Summon the Reaper by Ironshod
This powerful young witch has cast a spell to stop time and summon the Reaper! What will happen next?... you decide :)

I have painted this artwork for my 2010 calendar that is being put together now. The theme the publishers chose for the calendar is female fantasy characters (although there will be plenty of dragon in there also ;) ). This one is for October. I love Halloween and I couldn't resist doing something spooky especially for this month.

Thanks to *faestock One of her great photos gave me the idea for this picture. I did end up changing pretty much eveything about the pose, but it certainly kick started my brain - so thanks very much to Jessica for that :)

Be careful what you wish for when dealing with the forces of life and death.

Great image. The hourglass is effective, symbolizing the march of time. (Death's great ally). Characters are great, espcially the Reaper himself. His skeletal hand on the witch's shoulder. Will he be claiming her at the end?

I adore this one, mainly because I like the writer Terry Pratchett's image of Death, and this one I could really see in that role! Truly though, the level of detail is amazing. Thank you for sharing, I'll be watching your work from now on, you're very talented.

Wow, I love this! I have a tattoo of a female reaper on my arm that looks A LOT like her......Man I wish I had signed up with this site last year! I've seen this painting before and figured that this was absolutely PERFECT FOR MY OTHER TATTOOS! But I have a different prospective of this painting! As I look at it, yes, I see the young girl has sucessfully her spell, however what I see is a young inexperienced woman who has been tormented and tortured, ridiculed for the most part of her young life because she was ALWAYS DIFFERENT, STRANGE....I see in this girl's eyes, relief, as well as pleasure.....she has always known that she was different and was destined for something more....she's being taught by the REAPER himself, her own father!
