Dreaming of Venus by lucid-light Dreaming of Venus by lucid-light
Software used: Apophysis

Moar flowerz :|

I promised to myself that I'll do some things I enjoy and that I'll take some F***ING time off. Well, guess what? I got sick because I started doing too many things at once, silly me! :dummy: Not to mention that I took no time off AND I've been unable to work on 2 commissions that I promised to make. Duh.

The ARTWORK! I suppose I came up with this one totally on my own but for the first time I incorporated the rose plugin instead of flower/flower2 (what's the difference between these 2 anyway? :shrug:) Yeah. It looked really messy in Apo but sometimes the sweetest reward awaits for us only after rendering the image. I mean, look at this: sta.sh/01plf4yxqyjv

Pink, Venus and flowers. There is a lot on my mind on this topic. I used to hate pink and heels and all the stuff that stank of "femininity". I was never able to look manly, too fragile and girly for that but it never stopped me from acting like a "typical guy". Agressive, straight forward, overly-sexualized, untolerant to "weakness" - to hide my own weaknesses. As I get older, I realise I am neither "man" nor "woman". I am a human with my own qualities. I can do what I feel like doing without caring about how will people label it.

Incredibly beautiful work as always. I know what you are going through by making yourself ill through not resting. Nobody can tell you to stop, not when you create works as good as this. Kind regards. :)

It's lovely~ :rose: Glad you're learning to accept yourself; when you're young it may seem like every little thing matters sometimes, but one comes to learn that little things don't matter, in the end all the deadlines and work don't define you and you don't "have" to be anything, just do you and it will work in the end: If it hasn't yet, it probably just isn't over. :)

I love this design it reminds me of something on the lines stained glass or diamonds.  I was especially interested in the ideas behind it!  Anyways it seems like you captured the feminity that you were looking to achieve in this, so well done!
