Part of a collab I was honored to participate in with the awesome for 's birthday 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
You are so creative, I also love Remedios Varo (hint hint) !!! Honestly, I adore how you do this... I love your freedom and I love the composition, the symbols and that amazing palette!!!! I want one!!!
I know about wishing for things... lately my wishes are coming true and well, this one I wouldn`t mind!!! 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!!! 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?
