Underworld Overworld by blix-it Underworld Overworld by blix-it
This painting is from spread 96/97 of TG.

They sort of embody what the Underworld and the Overworld are.

Overworld: a beautiful, shiny, graceful bird.
Underworld: a black hairy tooth monster.

Part of the reason I extended this chapter to be so HUGE was that Vidu and Sedna needed time to become close. They were kind of friends at first sight, friends forever. Nothing could break that bond. (Until something does, but that something is far away in another plot.)

This painting was accomplished first with watercolor, which didn't look right. 8( Then I began editing with pastel and colored pencil until finally it was ok. Then scan and photoshop for extra shiny effects. :B

12 x 30 inches on Arches 140lb Cold Press
Daniel Smith watercolors
Sennelier Pastels
Prisma Colored Pencils
and some good old fashioned Photoshop.

Just as I mentioned in Pasco, it would make a very lovely addition on my wall at home in Sweden, and so it really really does! Many are the friends that have drooled over it, so I now found myself forced to go get an electric fence so all that (apparently highly conductive) drool will teach them a pretty good lesson :)

Take care! 
Best regards from the bickering (and least said weird) Swede.. (Nope, not a vegetable)

I really like the comparison of the underworld and overworld, the dark and the light. I also really like the style of the creatures. It seems really smooth and streamlined, maybe graceful is a good word. Very nice.
