My latest Alice continues to look awesome (:
Seri and I went to the beautiful, atmospheric Lake StJohn area to check if one of Yelly Donut’s many, fabulous Noctis stores still existed. It did! We love Yelly Donuts stuff.
We bought these awesome, potted arum lilies, this couch and chair, and a small table and exquisite tea set, and put them in the gallery, where Seri tried them out…
… and decided she liked them. Bianca Linden finally sorted our land acquisition, so now the gallery fronts right onto the Circuit La Corse, not a couple of meters from it, across a tiny strip of empty, abandoned land.
Once upon a time, there were two beautiful girls, Creaturina and Alice. These girls were born thousands of years apart. Not only were they born at opposite ends of the universe, they weren’t even born in the same universes. One was the daughter of the only sentient, though insane, planet ever to occur, in any universe, and the other was the daughter of incestuous British aristocracy, and, as a result of her genetic heritage, a cold, murderous psychopath. That these two, amazing creatures would meet, is one of the many astonishing truths of reality, that they would instantly love each other, and that their love would change the reality of the universe for ever, is now history. You just don’t know it yet.
I am enjoying Supergirl. The instant I saw this scene, I had to paint it! This is a very angry Kara Zor-El, in an episode that deals with, among other things, the recently outed Supergirl’s anger issues. She is in the process of blowing a very bad robot to atoms… she channels all the pent-up rage she’s been holding back about the loss of her family/planet, to defeat a particularly tough opponent. And, in fact, tries so hard she accidentally drains her own powers for a few days, so she gets, in the next episode, to cut her finger, catch a cold, and break her arm. Love it! And, of course, she’s just so damned cute!
To get the awesome texture on her top, I photographed the top of a 3V Lithium Cell battery, which had the exact pattern I needed, then took it into glorious Photoshop CS5, and made it into a tiled texture, which i then desaturated, then placed over her top, and set to ‘multiply’ Really pleased with it (:
