This painting is very much to do with The Egg Sucker novel I began after that incident. Ivan is not actually that big in the novel but I wanted to portray the Hauntling Wood growing from his back due to how much of the world he takes upon his shoulders.
A master of egg magic, I painted him here with an energy charged egg pendulum. And I decided it would only be fitting if I connected his tail with the soul spiral of the moon which represents his own life. And of course, as always, I had to paint in a bit of The Beneath (as the Egg Sucker was where I first really wrote about it)
This piece includes various little antique clock gears, decayed leaves (including an aspen leaf from the place in which I first met the Egg Sucker in person) and lots of little metallic gold touches.
I do hope you enjoy it
Medium: Watercolour, metallic pigment, salt, decayed leaves and antique watch gears on canvas This painting is bloodmarked and copyright 2014 to Aria '51' Keehn ShePaintsWithBlood (me) Thank you for looking!</i>
Thank you so much to MaxKielsmeier and STelari for the Daily Deviation! I am beyond honored, especially since this is a particularly close to my heart piece! I know Ivan would be thrilled as well!
Very well done and a great use of color. It looks like something from Nightmare Before Christmas. I am very impressed and can get the feel of something more going on within a story that's not made yet. The technique is splendid and matches the colors and concept rather well. A very good piece and could be interpenetrated many different ways. A great work of art to those who know what to look for and a lovely picture. Now I can see this will be a great work of art in the future, not that it isn't now of course. All in all well done!
