Part of a collab I was honored to participate in with the awesome :icondiegotripodi::iconoyah: :icondavidmacdowell: :iconzenatz19: for :iconsamuelraffa: 's birthday :party:

Diego sez, 'make it surreal', and I was delighted to learn Sam loves Remedios Varo, so it pretty much drew itself from there.
The Varo - style angel holds a sunny world as a nod to Sam's genuine affection for the dA community, a heart shaped palette with birthday candles for a happy birthday, and productive year ahead.
I had a blast doing this, Diego - thanks again, my friend :aww:

:bulletred: Featured here, thanks very much :heart:

I absolutely love the linework and use of tones! The face is especially interesting and it's great how every part of the figure seems to flow~

:hug: heh, don't tempt me to do a particular person Varo - esque style, 'cause I'm already SO THERE :nod: Her paintings and style are perfect for that interpretation :idea:

XD be careful what you wish for :laughing:

I know about wishing for things... lately my wishes are coming true and well, this one I wouldn`t mind!!! :love: :please: But maybe we could do a challenge or something over at spinners end... you know, paint "him" in any "art-style" as you want (Varo-Esque, Klimt-Nouveauesque, Daliesque, Fridaesque, DaVinciesque, Vangoghesque... even Disney Styled... Ideas... you know how I get when I get into my manic phase ;) etc) as long as it`s recognizable)... food for thought!!! :XD: Evil smiles...

That is a great idea . . . . I'd be game for that! But if we suggest that for a Challenge, we'd have to think of something for the writers as well. Write a piece in the style of a favorite author, perhaps? A favorite school of writing?

Woops, I really am not much into literature, but it sounds really interesting. Maybe Edgar Alan Poe, Dickens, Twain, Rowling etc. Classic writers! Or maybe have an illustrator pair for a writer, like a team work... and well, just have fun with that... sound good?
