Title: Nervous About All this
Post by: sepia on March 18, 2005, 10:29:36 PM
I go by the same name everywhere except on DevArt. and many things that crawl out of my twisted mind never make it up there, just in case of parental viewing and all.
This was my first non-montage computer generated dark art piece.
"Portrait of a Girl and Her Spiders"--I'm also lousy with naming this stuff.
So, I'll give this a shot.
It probably needs the res sliced down, and I had fits about the background.
Enjoy.......this really needs viewing at full size, but it is rather large so I am putting up a thumbnail to link you to the pic.

Me likes!  :dance:

I suck at titling things too, sepia. My first, visceral reaction to this pic was "Black Widow". Not all that original but describes it, I think.

That would be a good name for it. Thank you.
I've made some smaller ones that are considered a bit "creepie" when I have used them as avatars. But, as long as I do it over where I mod, not much said. I am the accepted oddball.

I'm trying to come up with some good stuff in poser right now. Just got the prog, well actually got it last Xmas but couldn't see at the time--MS eye problems, so I have to take breaks. I also way over complicate things. but, I have fun doing it over and over.
Does anyone in here do vector or 3D? Any tuts or brushes?

Thank you. It's a very easy manipulation that whole thing--eyes, skin, frame, etc.
My problem, at least I ran into in the Gfx thing in here, is keeping the original slightly intact. No vector stuff required, though I do enjoy making tribal, Celtic, pagan symbols, etc in Illustrator. Now I'm trying to get gruesome in Poser. so far the woemn come out looking like Groucho Marx, not quite what I intended.  ::)
BTW, I'm really enjoying do stuff w/ this forum inmind--first place I have been that actually encouraged Dark Art.

As noted at P2P Consortium, it seems beloved sepia has passed away this morning. Seeing that she shared her magic here, I thought I would mention it to all whose heart she touched. I know she will be missed on many fronts. I can only thank her for all the beautiful images she has provided through the past 2 years.

May she have found the eden she always deserved.

Oh man, that's miserable news, but thanks for letting us know, LotD.  I knew she had health problems, but I didn't realise they were life threatening - she seemed too young.  She was a real hippy-chick, and I liked her a lot :(
