Oooh - that is definitely worthy of being on a wall.  It's great @LionsDragon as it's got shiny, metally and glossy too :star:

To quote George Bernard Shaw ... You use a mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul

 

To that point, I always get how much of yourself you put into your work.  Really nice amalgamation

Beautiful composition @LionsDragon !   :)   Love it!    <3 

 

 

Combining techniques is sometimes a good thing!

 

Thank you! I've always liked mixed-media IRL, so I figured...why not? :)

*blush* Thanks! I'm a big believer in art therapy and art as an active meditation. I tend to see it as taking out a damaged soul-piece and letting new growth replace it.

 

I dream of inventing new textures the way you, @lynxster4, @Pixey, @dipstick, @Woodsy, and @MadJik do. Practice, practice!

The Poison Blue was a legend, and so was Eddie Barber....

This piece has its origins, of all places, in something I read about the way bottles of rodent poisons etc. used to be sold. They were ridged glass usually in a pretty shade of cobalt blue, and I commented I would have trouble not calling it "Poison Blue" from here on out. Next thing I know, I'm writing a short little piece about a musician from Saint Paul's Rondo Neighborhood and his supernatural trumpet...yeah. The Lion and I were discussing expanding this into an animated short, but that's gonna have to wait because we're getting ready to move from Saint Paul back to our home state of Wisconsin. As it stands, it's a love letter to an amazing city.

Wow!  That's a very Moody Blue piece @LionsDragon.  The snake is spooky curled up like that :jark:.  The piece is lovely and shiny and glassy too :).

 

My very best'est friend comes from Wisconsin (who now lives in Texas) but through her - I know all about cheese heads and the Green Bay Packers :grinneh:

 

Hope your move goes smoothly ;)

@Pixey thank you! It gave me an excuse to listen to some jazz standards...not that I ever need an excuse for that. ;) And yes, the Lion and I are Cheesheads to the core! In fact, we're moving close to Green Bay (he's from the area originally).

 

@Seerose, thank you! Funny how I got those colors: after getting the models adjusted to my liking and getting the background to resemble a loft-type apartment, I put a layer of deep blue over the top and then puttered around with the blending modes. I loved the effect I got with Xor, but it wasn't blue enough for my purposes--so another layer of deep blue set at "Normal" did the trick.

 

@lynxster4, that was exactly my intention! The term Poison Blue just kinda begged for it, y'know? Thank you!

Very emotive again from you.  It's like it's stripped back to the bare bones to deliver that knockout punch (...but then, inside my head is extremely weird so maybe I'm seeing it differently...)

 

Good luck with the move
