Ran across this faerie collection at a flea market, and couldn't pass it up at just $17.

Attention Wallpaper Lovers:

Wallpapers get a lot of downloads, but they seldom get very many comments. If you like a wallpaper (by me or anyone else), please please please give it a fave, and leave a comment saying why you like it! And if you don't like it, tell us why! This is very important to those of us who make the wallpapers you download, and not just for reasons of ego-gratification. Some people think of wallpapers as so-much eye-candy ... but they are so much more also. Since you download it onto your desktop, a wallpaper can be a very personal choice, as it is something that stares back at you from your monitor everytime you start your computer. The production of decent wallpapers, like any other kind of art, requires feedback, comments and criticism! So much for my rant ... enjoy the wallpapers, and say something, damnit!!!

Attention Digital Artists:

Have you thought about posting some of your work as wallpapers? The DA community is very much about exploring avenues for creating digital art that is more than "just" eye-candy. But, sometimes, it's fun to remember that art can be as much about function as form, and one of the most traditional ~practical~ uses of digital art is as wallpapers. You might enjoy making and sharing wallpapers that, hopefully, look good and yet make the viewer stop and think for a second, or at the very least do a double-take. You might appreciate the challenge of creating a personal system of syntagmatics that successfully presents complex issues in a "pop-art" medium that tends to be highly iconic in nature. Finally, you might feel a sense of mission in working in a DA genre that really hasn't fully evolved beyond the representation of eye-candy as art. Anyways, think about it ...

I can't wait to see your fairy stock! Are you going to put it in a distinct stock account, or in your main account?

Thanks for the tip!

Does it have a freudian meaning, you mean?

Freudian? I don't think so ... sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar ... :o

Oh sorry, now I get it ... a pun on Froud (Brian Froud, popular fairy illustrator) ... sorry I've been a bit slow on the uptake the last couple of days ... :(

Oh! Well, he isn't popular to me, since I have never heard of him. I thought you were mistyping Freud... sorry...

Ah, yes. He's an anglophile author. Perhaps his books can be compared to those of Pierre Dubois, as illustrated by the Sabatiers?

ah, so here's what you meant when you had it about religion and porn. it's great! still very subtle, but you want to do it more explicit you said?
you had a very beautiful long-legged model by the way!

Thanks for comment. Indeed, you have correctly spotted a bit of Christomimesis, though not in a directly Christian context. Actually for Christian fusions with eros, I was thinking more of works like these:

Hoc est enim corpus meum: [link]
Annunciation Anxiety: [link]
Her Secret Passion: [link]

And, yes, I do want to push the envelop a bit more.

What a great idea! I think you should have put the pin on the right through that hand instead of the wrist.
Reply
:iconlaurion:
Laurion Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2005
Thanks! I remember that pin ... actually, it had to go in the wrist, given the angle of the hand below the wrist ... it wouldn't have been a natural angle had the fulcrum been in the palm. I wanted to put both pins in the wrists actually, after having read some stuff about the physics of the Crucifixion, but the other wrist suffered from the opposite problem. Sometimes, with photo manips, you have to adapt your ideas to the pose.

Nah ... I'm too lazy for that. Besides, I don't actually use Photoshop, but an older version of PSP. It's almost as good, though, I suppose.

Nothing wrong with Paint. But once you've started working with layers and blend modes, especially for coloring in drawings, there is no going back. I only wish I could afford some of the truly specialized painting programs.

beutiful but yet a little depressing nothing like that should ever happen to a pixie

Thanks. Yes, it is a bit sad. I must admit though, I have been doing way to much with pixies for another project off dA, and I was a bit sick of the pesky little things when I did that another two wallpapers as a way to blow off some steam I guess.

Thanks for the nice words! I have to say your avatar has been bugging me because it was ringing a bell and I couldn't pin it down ... and now I just remembered it reminds me of a very articulate manticore with a mission in a post-sandman comic ... That may not be where it is coming from for you of course ...

weird how it has 1,492 views and only 12 comments?

first of all i love it. i love your style i love how you arent affraid to use the human form and your not just doing it in a dirty sex way. I thinks its very interesting how you have her hands pinned like an observation butterfly. I like the little touch at the buttom :) Again incredible job!
