One for the Future (Sentenced by the W.W.A.S.P.)

this is a piece on W.W.A.S.P., an evil, abusive organization supposed to help 'troubled' teens.
how can we deny people basic human rights? (probably triggering to abuse survivors)
a child should be able to say no.

I wanted to comment on the other pieces, but after doing just a little bit of research on that...
I feel bruised.

simply blown away...
These are insanely beautiful.

Each of these piece could pass as a paint on canvas painting, SO impressive. I know my way around Photoshop, used it for years and studied (literally) all it's characteristics and none of my projects ever come close to this.

You should see them in person. Cynthia is extraordinary. She is also an amazing singer, musician, photographer, and model.

Re: simply blown away...
I know! It's really amazing. Digital painting may be my favorite medium to see ;-) I have many more digipainting artists to share :D

Cynthia is a wonderful friend. I was at her wedding reception, and she's one of my favorite artists. How did you meet her? :)
belenen ══╣shock╠══
wow! I didn't know you were friends with her!
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
Yep, met her about five years ago at a friend's house. She always had amazing talent. She was singing in an industrial rock band she'd helped form back then, doing a bunch of modeling, painting the cover art for the CD's, etc. Lots of talent. She was dating the lead singer at the time, but they broke up a couple of years ago and now she is married to the other band member (the band has since broken up).

My husband and her husband happen to share a first girlfriend, too -- small world. Adam dated the girl first, and then five years later, Twig dated her.

By the way, is it okay if I show this entry to Cynthia? Her LJ is yveline if you want to friend her. She and her husband are awesome people.

belenen ══╣inspired╠══
you're welcome! I find that one so inspiring!
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
It is indeed -- the inspiration was what her future daughter with her husband might look like. :)
