Lady of the Flames

The Goddess of Fire

I know it’s been a long time, but we’re taking a break from travelling, so I’m giving this a try again…

Anyway, I’m experimenting with elemental effects for now. This is one of first pieces I am trying out with an original character. It’s also the second nude figure I am doing after¬†Lady of the Water

I should probably do an elemental goddesses series.

New Deviant…

I finally succumbed and got myself a deviant art account…

I didn’t really mean to, Deviant Art was one of those sites that I used to scoff at… I expected lots of creepy otakus and a lot of juvenile arty farty type that are slightly too full of themselves.

BUT I was bored and decided to take a look around the site. There are some SERIOUSLY awesome artworks in there….They are among a lot of thrashy stuff.. but they are DEFINITELY there..

So I signed up, and for the first time, I debuted a piece on deviantart and not here first.

It’s a piece I called “Invisible Invulnerability”¬† which shows Sue Storm of the Fantastic Four (or Future Foundation, whichever way you want to cut it) with her force field up. Was always fascinated by Sue Storm because she is supposed to be invisible, yet have a super strong forcefield. Trying to capture this duality in this piece with her battling with fire.

And I suppose it’s the way I feel about my presence on deviantart too.

Rest of my works can be seen here: theflamingskull.deviantart.com

Things I learned from Television today…

The Good?
powerpuff girls
It’s true… Much to the horrors of the Girlfriend, I am a new convert to the Powerpuff Girls…
There! I’ve said it! I used to think they were stupid, childish and… well, plain girly…
amoeba boys, powerpuff girls
But a recent episode featuring the ultra cool Amoeba Boys won me over. I mean, come on… any single cell villains that cannot think of a grander scam than stealing an orange is a winner in my books. ( In my defence, I believe I’ve mentioned the power of examinations to make EVERYTHING on TV look interesting…) (Examinations have even made me watch the Titanic… again…) (which is something else I should not be mentioning…) Too many confessions in one post already…
The Bad
pupeye, pipeye, poopeye, popeye
Now… Babyfying lead characters in most successful franchise is normally a good idea to win over the people who like their characters cute and cuddly… They did it with Bugs Bunny, they did it with Mickey Mouse, they even did it with the X Men and the Justice League… But I think we should all draw a line at babyfying ugly one eyed sailors with speech impediment. (hmm… a one eye seaman… interesting… *rubs hands together…) And naming they Pipeye, Pupeye, Peepeye and… again, I am not making this up… POOPEYE…
On the other hand, the clip is pretty nice… They sure don’t make cartoons like these anymore… which is a real pity…
Speaking of the Justice League, we come to
the Plain Ugly
Justice League, TV, flash, green lantern, fire, atom, ice
From the pilot of a proposed series…
I am still stunned speechless by their masks…
