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!

Fire Dance

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.

Thunder or lightning?
Something frightening?
