The Muse by Grim-Red The Muse by Grim-Red
Hush.







------------------------------

Still rusty.
Took me several attempts to find the right light, angle etc etc.
Then, out of the blue...Mucha and the 20's came to help me, with a touch of nordic inspiration.
What i had in mind? A silenced muse ( her right eye, aka right hemisphere of the brain, where the creativity is, is in full dark) and many classic sculptures of Athena.
I think for this week i am done, it's been quite intense. ^^;

As usual

I find this to be a very dramatic piece of work. You have achieved incredible lighting effects - very clever the way you have blacked out the right side (left on the image).

Thank you for submitting to :iconsharpenededge:

wow, thank you very, very much.
Not my plan to make a "photorealistic" portray, but very happy to hear it came out that way. :D

Silence isn't always silent, probably.
Or maybe i am just casting a spell to wake up the silent muses around the world.
I can't tell. But if it gave something somehow useful to you and/or anybody else...well.... i would say " goal achieved". :)

Thanks to you for your words, most appreciated.
