Fire Dance by cosmosue Fire Dance by cosmosue
Something I have been working on for the last 2 days straight.

Its for a possible project over at Duirwaigh Gallery

Also its in honor of Samhain, the witches new year, but its a couple days late =) (yes I am aware it is also a Celtic holiday) I have held my Pagan beliefs for about 8 years now (but somehow I always knew its what I was)

Characters rendered first in poser, then painted over in photoshop, hours and hours of painting, total time spent on this roughly 24-30 hours.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-11-15
Fire Dance by ^cosmosue is a monochromatic piece that caught my eye like a match sparking in the pitch black of night- like a shooting star. It is a pure, magical moment of entrancement and I find it to be very difficult to pull myself away from it. There's great depth created through the use of light and shadow and immense detail; the mice on the ground, dancing away, the intricate detail of the dress, and of course the trees behind the fairy. Everything is alive in this piece with a spirit of its own- even the grass! ( Suggested by drkelement and Featured by JunkbyJen )

What kind of magic spell to use?
Slime and snails?
Or puppy dog's tails?
Thunder or lightning?
Something frightening?

Striking with incredible movement
and depth. Fiercly warm color is so alive.
Had this been a heroine in a childhood
book, I'm sure she would have been
my favorite character!
(I would love to see this picture in a
storybook!)
