GreedNTemperants by Suilenroc GreedNTemperants by Suilenroc
We made a foolish promise to ^FallenRox agreeing to produce a wallpaper on the subject of Greed and Temperance - so here is a little demonic outporing trying to represent these two strange concepts in visual form.

Greed We understand :nod: but temperance :confused:

We are immoderation in all things - more excess please! :boogie:

I've been away from DA for 6 months, but when I logged in today and saw that I had 120 new deviations on my list - and this was one of them, I remembered why I loved DA so much! Just awesome!!:D

We like a whole heap of excessess - you should see Our overdraft! :fear:

If you like sex and drugs why not combine the two interests - Viagra! :giggle:

Thanks for the comment Dr T, appreciate your opinion. :nod:

We just don't seem to have the same deadication to detail as your own twistid works show. To prove the point here is a link [link] - showing the original sketch for the main figues in this piece. As you will see - even Our sketches are imprecise! :D

Impressive! This actually looks like part traditional art. (Is it..?) Great smokey effects, and I believe I detect a slight texture if I'm not mistaken. Wonderful work, my darling. :kiss:
Nice touch with the bloke on the left having a 'glass' of juicy brain. ;)

Thanks MM

This was entirely digital - remember that graphics tablet gathering dust in the corner of your room? - well We used one like it for this - took about 1.5 hours in all!

We're not sure what a "texture" is but We did use a couple of Adobe CS photo filters in immoderation to add "complexity" and colour. If that counts as a texture then - yes We probably did! :hug:

IreneLangholm Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
No dust. :lol: I've actualy used it quite a bit lately. I'm starting to get used to it, and to love it! :D

By texture I mean the effect that is particulary visible on the table, on the bottom left corner. :) How did you do that?
Reply
:iconsuilenroc:
Suilenroc Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2007
Glad to hear you are getting to grips with the tablet! :)

The "texture" effect is actually the Corel Painter brush called "Nervous Pen" which We used to draft the original line work for both figures and scenery - it has a pleasing randomness and imprecision that appeals to Our somewhat chaotic style. We are precisely imprecise! :D

Nervous pen. :laughing:

The randomness sure do suit you.;) And what words of wisdom you tell; "precisely imprecise". I love that. :D

Holy moley! This is really trippy. It's like a dream scene or something. Kind of a piratey sort of feel, deep down in the belly of a boat. VERY impressive and I'm glad it made you stretch your mind a bit. Struggling can produce great results.... obviously. Thanks for entering! :heart:
