Within the Flames by BlackTalonArts Within the Flames by BlackTalonArts
Rarely do I post my promo works, but I have a couple I'm very happy with and this is one of them.  I hope you like as well.
I haven't done a dark angel in a very very long time.  Be careful, she just may take your soul.

DS/PS
Promo was for Fabiana & Lucila through Em3d

For those of you that want to keep up with my promoworks ( Rarely will I share them here) and have facebook, you can follow me here: www.facebook.com/BTApromos/

It looks so sad somehow. The candles standing on something like a carpet, or maybe even going by in a burning fluid. The sad, empty, burning eyes. It's like the angel used to have meaning in life but slowly lost it, burning up...

Brilliant work, Mel, and I think you really mastered the colors here, also how one flows into the other!
Thank you for the warning, but since I never mind messing around with dark angels, I will try to get acquainted with her better! ;)

I like this one. It’s darker, more intimate feeling. Like “the Darker Side” :)

As much as I like it, and I really do, I prefer the other softer looking Promo. But that's just my taste and has nothing to do with the always present top notch quality of your work.

haha,  it seems most people preferred the other one as well.  Me?  Well I'm partial to this one...the darker side of things.  :D

This is definitely the sort of image you don't want to be looking at when it's stinking hot! lol
It makes me break out in a sweat just looking at it - and it's night time! ;) In spite of all that
though, this is a very beautiful piece! I love the vibrancy of the colours (I'm just not a fan of
red at the moment :P) and the composition. The shader on the skin looks gorgeous with the
golden flecks. You've done an incredible job with draping the cloth too, it falls very naturally.
I also like how she is framed by the wings and the darkness of them.

LOL, I know right?  Maybe it's some form of subliminal message about going through the stupid female change.....menopause. ugh    This image hasn't proved to be as popular as the other one, but I'm a sucker for bright colors at times.  Maybe it's my anger stage?  Who knows.  But the great thing about art is it's always subjective and not everyone will like everything and you know what?  It's totally ok. :D   Thanks for your honest opinion which I always appreciate.

Hehehe! Who knows! Those pesky subliminal messages are secretive and sneaky, we
never know what's lurking in our subconscious! ;) It's a real shame that this one isn't
as popular as your other image - this is a beautiful piece! It's mercifully cooler tonight,
so I can enjoy the "Oooh, pretty!" moment rather than bursting into tears because
looking at a red image only reminds me how wretchedly uncomfortable and hot I am!
How subjective art can be, how open to interpretation and the emotions it can evoke
is always interesting! How our responses to the same image can change depending
on the seasons or our moods. If you posted this one in the middle of winter, I would
have only seen the red theme as beautiful! But posting it in what is shaping up to be
an awful Summer, different story entirely! "What have I done to deserve this torture?!"

Give me six months and I will be liking red again! ;) Especially this kind of reds you're
using in this image: hot and richly red, but not overpowering.

You are obviously on the opposite side of the world as I'm freezing my ass off.  So about the time you're cooling down we will be burning up. lol

The Australian weather sucks! Sweltering Summers that seem to be getting
hotter every year, and then Winters are just cold and don't even have the
enjoyment of snow. Where I am, I'm in the wrong part of the state to get any
snow. Any time it does snow, it has always been raining a lot beforehand so
it never settles! :(

After 3 or 4 weeks of 40+ degree days, by the time it starts cooling down and
we head into Autumn, I don't get where the heat has gone only that it isn't
bothering me anymore! lol

I was just reading an article on all those poor flying foxes that died.  Broke my heart. :(  Please take care of yourself in that dangerous weather.

Yes, it's very distressing when something like that happens. :( The authority gives
health warnings for people to remain indoors and remain cool, but no one ever thinks
about what's happening to the wildlife when they cant get any relief from such
temperatures and even pets, cats and dogs that are left outside in such heat.

Don't worry about me though. I'm parked in front of several fans or the air cooler and
I stay hydrated, the house is shut up, all the sliding doors and windows are closed
to keep the worst of the heat out. It wasn't too bad today (30-something is a huge
improvement to 44+) but we're expected to have another heatwave coming sometime
in the week. Joy. :(

Sad indeed and it angers me to especially see domesticated animals left to the elements.  It's sad I care more for nature/animals than for people. lol  Nonetheless it's a tragedy they had to suffer. Such beautiful creatures.

Probably feels like it's a cave at your house trying to keep it cool.  Just happy that you aren't suffering.  It's been a hard winter up here so we've had the opposite.  Seems like I'm always cold. ugh.

Anyway have a great weekend!

Agreed.  Fabiannas stuff whether you are a fan or not is truly top notch work.  Everything is always well done and Lucila who does the poses is doing just as good and getting better. :)

Maybe I won't invite this one out for a drink, then...

So many beautiful elements here: her pose, the drape of her wings and the fabric, her sparkly skin, the candles... This is gorgeous. I really like the colours, too!

LOL, the drinks might be a tad hot and we wouldn't want to scald your throat. *wink*  Thank you, many years ago this was a common color scheme with me.  Rich reds, oranges, yellows and at times blue.  So it was fun to revisit that palette again. :)
