she never sleeps by raun she never sleeps by raun
This came out while I was editing some landscape photos from last weekend (i'll submit the basephoto later on). The scenery just begged for Samara to step in. I think The Ring is one of the visually most interesting thrillers I've seen in my life, and this is sort of a tribute to whoever made that film (the american version), for he is a Genius..

'Samara' I got from the deviantart stock gallery, submitted by ~ ForestFairy-Stock, thanks to her!

Fanart for "The Ring" may be a dime a dozen but she never sleeps by =raun is a stand out work for the genre. Simplicity aside, the mood and atmosphere of this piece sets it miles ahead of any i have seen. ( Featured by mirrorkills )

Gore Verbinski made this film, and yes. He is a genius. He has to be to come up with the kick-arse movie that is Pirates of the Caribbean.

I love it! Wish I could do that...I can't do much. I have no talent. LOL

I must introduce myself as your new fan.

I think this picture lacks a bit o "air", maybe if you had put Samara a bit more to the right (our right, not her right) it would have looked perfect.

But still, I liked it anyways.

oh i saw it as a book cover in Turkey, but i dont remember the name of the book or the writer
but i remember exactly that it was written inside of the book "graphic design by someone"- who is turkish but not you.
i will try to find that book and tell you later.
and i really feel angry about those kind of things..
they should respect art and artist!

yeah, that was a nasty rip off. Made me feel really angry as well. The publisher/designer that ripped this image also ripped off a number of other artists on devart. Its bad enough to rip off ideas, but to rip off completed images and make a profit on it is just disgusting :stab:

I don't know if anyone posted this already, however the director is Gore Verbinski.

It is based on the Japanese movies which are based on a series of Novels by author Suzuki Koji. If you loved any of the movies, definately see about reading the books. They have been translated to english and should be easily available.

Yeah, The Ring has a kind of spooky, blackened, but carefully developed aesthetics. But in my own point of view movies by russian director Andrey Tarkovsky are deeper in this particular dimension. If you haven't seen any of his films, I strongly recomend to watch THE MIRROR [Zerkalo] (1974) and STALKER (1979). His films are all highly philosophical, touching the deepest meenings and symbols of human inner world.

Great pic any way :))
