Salt and Light

One day, I'm going to see Salar de Uyuni.
Some fitting music: Here


I was thinking of something recently while working on this. I thought I'd share:

The presence of someone always shatters the image of them you had in your brain. Our memories of them are imperfect and always miss the mark. It goes for God. It goes for your family and your friends. It goes for your enemies. How easy is it to make a person into an object of desire- or hate- or an idol just by removing yourself from them? It's so easy remaking a person however we want to in our brain. I think we need to regularly remove those inconsistencies in our thoughts by being near the real person.

Thank you! I find incorporating sigs have 2 advantages:
1. It's more pleasing to the eye to make the signature part of the painting
2. It makes it harder for a thief to find and remove it without altering the picture a great deal.

Thank you!

He certainly does

This is absolutely amazing. Enthralling, almost. I feel myself getting lost in those stars.
A-Hippocampus's avatar
Have fun!
Thanks:-) How are you doing Karnak? 
Karnak44's avatar
Good. Got a new tablet, so I'm finding time to draw again. Also getting ready for college.

You?

Cant complain. Saving money to move states. I ran my own D&D type game recently. That was really fun.
Karnak44's avatar
Sounds nice. A lot of change and progress going your way.

And D&D too! I've been getting a bit into the scene myself, though I'm still a massive newbie. Really fun stuff, especially as a host.

And, of course, your art's only gotten better.

This looks amazing. I love images with reflections built into them
A-Hippocampus's avatar
Thanks Arget! Aren't reflections nice? I want to do one with citylights too! Sigh... when the pile of unfinished projects gets smaller. 
ArgetKnight's avatar
I feel you, sis
A-Hippocampus's avatar
Also, what projects do you currently have on the back burner? If you care to share?
ArgetKnight's avatar
Pffft, let me see...

I have at least 2 full time animations that will take at least two months each, I need to finish the if TF2 had Play of the Game series, I am writing a novel, as always, and currently I am making a game with RPG maker.
A-Hippocampus's avatar
Cool! That RPG game sounds interesting. Let me know if you need a tester.
ArgetKnight's avatar
More than testers I need people to give me ideas for abilities and such. There are close to 50 classes and they all need a bunch of stuff to make them interesting.
A-Hippocampus's avatar
Woah. That's a huge amount. Hmm... one of them has to be a butler
