Prisoner by karibous-boutique
Prisoner
“Many of us who walk to and fro upon our usual tasks are prisoners drawing mental maps of escape”
~ Loren Eiseley


It was nice when Mihrelle (Nightmare Collection) created a figure which perfectly captured the way my spine has been feeling.  :CursorStab:

Mirror-Mirror by karibous-boutique
Mirror-Mirror
Every time she looked in the mirror, she could feel her Nightmares staring back at her...

Entry for Renderosity's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" Halloween contest. (Not a winner, but I'm proud anyway!) I was inspired by the idea that often our "something wicked" doesn't enter from the outside world, but rather it creeps out from the darkest parts of our minds. After all, who hasn't closed their eyes and, on occasion, seen their darkest reflections? I was a little disappointed that the real ray-traced reflections didn't appear as dramatic as I wanted, but I was still pleased overall! 

Happy Halloween!

Rendered in Poser Pro 2014 in multiple layers. Postwork in Photoshop CS6. Approximate time to complete: 12-14 hours, including render times.

Never Forgotten

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 11:34 PM
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”

― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


It's been a very sad few weeks.  In addition to the recent loss of the amazing Robin Williams, our little DAZ community has also bid farewell to one of our dearest, finest members.  Jaderail, mentor to soooo many people on the DAZ forums (and elsewhere) has left us with holes in our hearts -- but a smile in them, also.  He was featured in my journal when he passed, so I thought I'd take a moment and single him out.  He will be missed.

Please remember... cherish your health and support education and research of chronic illnesses that affect  the body AND mind.  Chronic physical illnesses rob so many people of things many of us take for granted... and chronic mental illness is frequently invisible to the casual observer.  In all cases it is wise to remember that chronic illnesses can be debilitating and deadly.   There is so very much about our bodies and brains that still mystifies us.  But one thing that both of these men demonstrated in their lives was COMPASSION.  Sometimes the love and acceptance of another person is just enough to help us through another day.  And sometimes that love and acceptance follows us into another place, where freedom from those illnesses is finally possible.

Rest in peace, gentlemen.

I may be soft in your palm but I'll soon grow
Hungry for a fight, and I will not let you win.
My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will
Disprove your faith in man.
So if you catch me trying to find my way into your
Heart from under your skin...
Fast as you can, baby scratch me out, free yourself
Fast as you can...

Oh, I love your stuff!  I have Dragon Leaf and Cherry Delight and a few of your firearms, I believe!  :)

Thank you!  There are eventually going to be more -- I began putting one together about using adjustment layers, blur techniques, and touch-ups.  But then life happened, lol.  I'm coaching my daughter's Lego Robotics team and my spare time has been eaten!
