Strangelove by lucid-light Strangelove by lucid-light
Software used: Apophysis

Several ideas lurk behind this artwork, somehow tangled together. During my 11+ years  of being on DA I must have casually mentioned several times that I'm pansexual but since I did no "official coming out" thing, I suppose this will be news to many of you. This year DA is promoting Pride month, so I figured I'd contribute with love themed artwork :heart: The title is borrowed from Depeche Mode - whom I've seen live at Bratislava about a month ago and it was incredible. Strangelove is one of my most favourite songs of theirs, plus the lyrics hint at unconventional types of love. It's been on my mind while I was creating this artwork, so this is the outcome of that particular rabbit hole I fell into :D

Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! :rose: It means a lot to me.

At the beginning it seems to be a flower blooming completely forwards instead of outwards, with the blue and purple glows seeming to shift out everything and the petals curling in everything; giving the forward appearance. The colors are beautiful and vibrant, contrasting the darkness, but some of the outside seems overly blurred. The blue and purple glows pressed close together in the middle have the feeling of eyes, making the work look like it's spreading out its arms from the base of a creature. Overall the work is very lovely and vibrant, but the blur of colors makes it hard to last in my eyes. Your work is beautiful, so please do continue to take my breath away.

Wow, so beautiful! Lovely colors and movement. :) :heart:

Also, just my opinion, but officially coming out online is totally overrated.

Thank you :) In my case it's definitely overrated and somewhat unnecessary since my art usually doesn't relate to that facet of my identity (it does now, so I'm mentioning it). At the same time I understand why would people want to be vocal about their sexuality, a lot of people find partners online so it may be beneficial to have that info out there.

I'm fairly open about my sexuality online, but I just don't see the point in rubbing the rainbow in everyone's face like many people do. Also, I tend to not care what other people think of me. I can see what you mean, though. :)

There is a black-and-white comedy film entitled "Doctor Strangelove". Bittersweet
vision of beginning of WWIII and end of humanity. Some say it's the best comedy
of all times.
