Have You Forgotten? by ZerachielAmora Have You Forgotten? by ZerachielAmora
"Hello, little brother. I hope you haven't forgotten what day it is, like you did last year."
~Theresa, Fable 1


A picture of Theresa, what a surprise! I should do an original piece of work to make up for all the fanart I've been doing, but I haven't been inspired...so if anyone has suggestions for original pics you want to see me do, go ahead.

Anyway, this is one of my entries for *PianoxLullaby's Halloween contest. I used Theresa's child design, added her blindfold from her young adult design, and gave her the typical pose her older self uses all the time.

I wanted to give her the depiction of a ghost, but without the cliché elements that are often used:
1. Ghosts in pictures usually are depicted without color, usually very white, or just monochrome. I left Theresa with color.
2. They always seem to be given glows around them. She only has an aura that is displayed in the ground and the stone wall near her. The stone wall around the tree is how the tree had been planted back when she was a girl in Oakvale. Now that Oakvale has become Wraithmarsh, that stone wall is gone from the tree, but it is in this image, for the area around Theresa reflects how Oakvale used to be...just in that small area around her.
3. Her shadow is made of light, instead of darkness.
4. Ghosts are usually transparent in images. Theresa isn't.

That about sums it up. :nod:

This was really awesome.
How you incorporated all three major stages of her life in one picture is truly impressive, and the overlall art style and execution was excellent.
I admit I didnt realize she was a ghost at first, but after reaing your description I scrolled back up and saw all the little details that you put in.

Glad someone draws Theresa from before she was an old crone (she's cool even then, but I prefer the adventurer) and hope you keep up with the great work!
This remeinds me... I really need to play The lost chapters... or atleast watch a lets play.

Thanks so much! I'm glad you were able to see the details I was trying to get across.

I like all stages of Theresa's life. Even as an old crone she's pretty cool. :lol:

I need to do that too. I've only played the original Fable...I wish The Lost Chapters had been made for the Xbox.
