FULL-VIEW PLEASE!!! The thumbnail doesn't do this any justice.

Based off the song of the same name by one of my favorite artists, Sarah Fimm. You can download the song from her website---> [link] Her whole Nexus album makes me very happy, so don't be surprised if there is more song-based art in the future. ^^

Not much to say about the pic itself, except the hair was evil and I enjoy painting nebulea. The wings were also an interesting experience. And that is the symbol of the planet Mercury, in case you didn't know. ^__~


"Mercury" by Sarah Fimm

Mercury
I see visions of galaxies
Where you are is where I'll be someday.

And You puzzle me
Am I made of you?
Are you made of me?
Cause I'm so confused
Mercury.


How you gaze into me
With your vast display of constancy
You enchant me, Mercury.


I have found something in your eyes
That you have found in mine. Mercury
We don't have time.


Everyone has their day
But I pray
Our worlds collide
and form strength tonight
Mercury.


Mercury
I see visions of galaxies
Where you are is where I'll be someday.
Just another piece of history
From far away.



Art (c) K. Olson

Yay, a fellow nebula painter! (I only painted one in one o' my oekakis so far)

This is a breath-taking piece, and am glad you have joined neondragonart's oekaki board!

I saw this in today's Mod's choice at Elfwood and absolutely had to hop on over here to see the full-sized version. :D It's so beautiful! I love the gold/brown colors of the character against the blues and purples in the sky...very pretty. I love girl's the pose and expression...there's a sort of liberating mood to it. And the wings are just SO cool. :+fav:!

Great job. If you ever do anything for Jupiter, as that's what "star" is part of the Saggitarius sign, please let me know. I would love to see what you come up with.
