+ The Chemistry Of Us + by ShePaintsWithBlood + The Chemistry Of Us + by ShePaintsWithBlood
"Do I shine like coal? Do I taste of velvet? Close your eyes and what am I?"
You said that to me and I melted. Oh goddess, the chemistry of us.

From a dream. He was the happier side of my white deer, Hope (whom you have yet to meet, but I am in love) He was so friendly, he let us play with him and pet him and tickle his belly while he rolled on his back. In the end though...someone came and took him from us and they were so angry. It hurt. If you find a beautiful black stallion (happiness) do not dare let anyone take him from you. If you do, I will come after you while you are tucked into bed.

First of all I do have a new watermark (it looks crap.) How do you make watermarks in Photoshop?
I drew him a week or so ago the day I had the dream. I painted this last night (mostly) and just layered paper, etched out gears in the paint and stuck a clock piece on for the moon. Now that you wanted to know.

Time: Five or so hours?
Tools: Metallic cakes, watercolour, white mixing acrylic, inner piece of a clock.
Reference: None for the overall sketch but a few for touch-ups.

This drawing and the blood are copyright© ShePaintsWithBlood, Aria (me) Thank you so much for looking.:blackrose:

Anyway, I plan to follow you! And hope to see more inspiring pieces like this :D

Thank you so much!! That widget bit was from the inside of a pocketwatch and I thought it would sort of look like an abstract moon too so I am glad you agree!:blackrose:

Does Bay Arabian Stallion counts? I have him in my dream, as he trying to guide me to follow his path before he disappeared. He is absolutely stunning looking stallion and he looked so cheerful and positive. I tried my best to follow him in my dream through the beautiful house to the garden area. One problem is that, he is pretty fast but in a slight of a slow motion way. I never seen him again after that dream I had. Having him around made me feel warm and fuzzy inside as I feel comfortable with great confidence. o.O;

Oh really? Hmm...that is very interesting, I wonder what it could mean for you? That is so neat though, it sounds so similar to my dreams. I have had this stallion show up as a bay before too on multiple occasions which is an odd coincidence. Thank you for sharing.:blackrose:

I'm trying to figured that out but I never dream like that ever again. xD Maybe my spiritual side, perhaps? I have no clue really. But, you could tell that Bay stallion is trying to tell you in an encouraging way with a such of positive feeling that made you want to follow that kind of emotion. This stallion is very glossy and rare type of horse that you don't see in real life.

You're truly welcome. :aww: :blackrose:

'If you find a beautiful black stallion (happiness) do not dare let anyone take him from you.' ... Now I feel slightly scared O.o My... 'Spirit guide'? (seems the best way to describe him... though its kinda... way off the mark but I cant think how to say it xD) disappeared not long ago. His usual form was a black arabian type stallion, but with high white markings on his legs and a white face. The whole tone of this drawing really reminded me of him...
Anyway, I love the painting :D Your style always amazes me, its so pretty :) And all the details! I don't know where you find the patience xD I always seem to rush my drawings far too much :/

:nod: I just wish he'd come back, it's nice not to be alone in my mind sometimes :P
You're very welcome :)
If anything, I'd say that your work is often more centered the sort of mood that it creates, and is often so deep that over-detailing it would confuse the viewer and draw their attention away from the theme of the drawing. Things are easily overdone ;P Anyway, I love this peice and think that the balance of it, details and all, are just perfect :D Keep painting! xD

Yes well not just the ripping but I mean the swelling up bumps on the back of the piercing and the blood and such and now the piercings are like...deformed. If you feel a bump, start soaking in saltwater and maybe using that vitamin E oil.:blackrose:

This is so sweet and lovely. It's interesting that I just looked at this today when I had a dream last night about having this kind of bond with a giant manta ray. That warmth and sadness of parting all comes rushing back. :heart:

And I have no idea how to make watermarks. It's something I need to learn, I think.

This is exactly why I look up to you for multimedia traditional artwork.

I'm not sure where to begin, I'm so content just looking at it!
I love the way this scanned(?), you can see the metallic edge to things, really neat effect.

I'm really short for time unfortunately so I'll have to justify this with a favorite. :heart:

I actually photographed it because my scanner is not hooked up but the camera is the only thing that captures the metallic bits I guess. Thank you again ^n.n^ :blackrose:
