Pandora by Tidan Pandora by Tidan
We would be warm, below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head, on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
..
gotta love the beatles...

I still hate you with passion.

But the passion is love.

So it's all good.

Another beautiful work, dude, can't wait for you to come back up and show us all how it's done! XD

Friggin awesome.

I really like the crown. The way you have modelled it with the light on the fingers, on the back of the chair, the red orbs and the tentacles is quite extra-ordinary :-D Hope the exhibition goes well!!

You noticed!

Pandora in folklore was a girl who opened up a chest, an inside the chest was all the evils in the world.
Here shes opened up a chest holding the tentacles of a giant beast which now curl out around her.

I can do nothing to help her, for she has chosen this fate, and her steel eyed stare tell me she has the strength to endure the consequences of her actions anyway.

With her septre she denies the snake getting to her, and stops anyone taking her pearl.

All too symbolic but hey, i paint what i feel :/

That's quite alright, it's a personal interest of mine, I had wondered if you knew the Greek story or just used the name. Glad to be of service *bows*
Will you be doing any more mythology-inspired artworks in the future?

Take care of yourself, hope to see you sometime.

warm. too warm. i had to sleep with my damn window open yesterday and couldnt sleep. aside from that im a cheery soul!

Avoided the sex and the city premiere by a matter of minutes- (youll never get me alive Carrie) and also a stabbing by a street away. it was a desicion i could have made which could have made my evening feel very different had i chosen otherwise!

ill be leaving here on the 18th, but hopefully ill see you guys during the summer :)

Gotta love the sun, despite the heat/premieres/stabbing/clowns...

Artwork ho! You have a soft approach to colour dude, pastelles colour choices. I like the rendering of her eye. This definitey has a storybook feel. There's almost astrology in there with Cancer and Pisces... Is there a reason the octopus doesn't have any suckers?

Yeh its about damn time i put something up!
Time constraints man, i worked on this fully for a week everday till ten for this exhibition we got going on here at work, the deadline was monday- at this size a lot of the detail is lost sadly but im printing it A3 on canvas so all those pesky details like the missing suckers wil be fully noticable ^^ Jeesus, wass all that one sentence?

Its of a girl pandora,
who drowned in the wata
believing she was a princess of the sea...

Yes it definitely is 'bout time! An exhibition sounds cool man. I know's how the time pressing ness of looming exhibitions feels' These Suri pics were for just thought, at the bequest of someone other too. Take pictures of the canvas print, and exhibition for me dude, will you?

I'm getting more into this colour business these days.. slow learning -phew- So, you got another image in the works? :P :P
