Mystic Dance by adrianamusettidavila Mystic Dance by adrianamusettidavila

My friend :icondani-owergoor: had started working on this base and then gave it to me to continue.
Therefore, this work began as a manipulation and then turned into a painting so it's strictly a mixed media and a collaboration.
Thanks Dani for the inspiration and the help with the finishing touches.

If they had not mentioned that this had originated as a manipulation then I might never have realized it.

In all earnestness I thought this was a painting plain and simple and what a painting it is. There is so much in the way of motion going on simply through a series of poses from the two principal characters in this piece: the mermaid and the sea serpent.

The posing and motion of these two characters asks a question: are they working in concert or against one another? It is a fascinating consideration and one that could leave us wondering for a time as we try and decipher whether or not these two characters seek one another's destruction or cooperation.

The light of the piece throws these two and their interaction, shadows serving to keep the viewers eyes focused on the centerpiece with vague shapes flitting through the edges and background of the piece, hinting at a wider world unseen within the ocean of the piece.

The overall color scheme used in the piece makes it so that the unusual splashes of contrasting colors stand out in the eye of the viewer, a brightly colored school of fish, the glowing eye of the serpent. These are positioned in a more or less vertical line that enables the viewer to travel the height of the piece in a smooth motion before beginning to explore the surroundings.

The piece that started as a manipulation has become an enchanting image that leaves the viewer with no clear interpretation as they question the imagery for the answer to the question of its two principals to decide if their fates are in concert or conflict.

Fico feliz que tenha gostado, Wes, mas para te ser bem sincera, os méritos são todos da Drica, ela que insistiu para colocar meu nome junto. Eu não fiz absolutamente nada a não ser um toque de cor e glow no final de tudo, ou seja, 1% dos 99,9% que ela fez!!  :D

Muito obrigada Wes, também fico feliz que tenha gostado :happybounce:  e não dá bola para a Dani rsrsrs, o touch de glow e cor que ela fala foi absolutamente imprescindível para o resultado, sabe que eu puxo sempre para escuridão...e o modelo ela escolheu, recortou e começou o trabalho. A cauda sim foi minha, já quase estava acabado quando achei que necessitava uma cauda mais importante e desenhei essa ai.

Thanks for the mention, Roger, but I must to say that on this work, Adriana made 99% and I only touched in the end just to add some glow and pop up the colors!! Anyway, I'really glad you liked!
