Flights of Fancy by HanMonster Flights of Fancy by HanMonster
I've got a lot of catching up to do, huh. XD

I'm still getting used to this newfangled uploading system, but at the very least, I've figured out how to put up new stuff. Re-foldering my old heap o' junk will be tackled in the new week or so... whenever I figure out just how to go about it, that is.

This is another of my concentration pieces from the high school portfolio, and still a personal favorite. I've always adored the concept of transformational artwork, and a stage by stage evolution of character is something I wanted to do for months before this was painted. The first figure is mimicked from an ancient Egyptian narrative scroll (which I used to know by name) of Horus, though the rest is purely imaginative/self created. I rendered it in thin watercolor washes and micron on a marbled sepia paper to try and get that... antique-y effect.

For the record, I hatehateHATE obnoxious watermarks... but since I've become a Gaiaonline junkie in the past few months, I've come to realize that they're desperately needed for practically anything on the interwebs. You wouldn't believe how much stolen work I see floating around the rp forums of people's "original" characters. I've seen Sebychu's work, BeastofOblivion's, Lasaro's (LOOOOOTS of hers)... and a ton of others I can't name off the top of my head. Hell, I've even caught someone mauling MY lines before. Not cool.

Come on, guys; it's not original if you're stealing someone ELSE'S design! D: /end derail.

OKAY ANYWAY.

Flights of Fancy by ~HanyousBlood is aged to look like papyrus and designed to emulate Egypt's hieroglyphic style. The transformation from Egyptian god to the creature of its original basis is a superb idea. ( Suggested by Skylord and Featured by cooley )

I think you managed the transformation concept pretty well :D ! The third and fourth stage remind me of Nefir from the Aladdin series^^

Super cool! I really like forms 4 and 5. The hieroglyphic style is very interesting.
