Rest for the wicked by meluseena Rest for the wicked by meluseena
You never know when to expect the dangerous warmth of friendship my dear, when you sleep in matchboxes...

OMG! Thank you for all the feedback! :hug:

Digital collage.

Took me around 20 hours, crazy amounts of photographic source and airbrushing. Own stock.

Rest for the wicked by *meluseena is so moody and menacing it's delicious. Proof positive that one doesn't have to turn down the light source to make something macabre. ( Suggested by Mechant-Loup and Featured by cosmosue )

While your work was very good, it was a little too good for me personally. I was in a gas explosion 9 years ago while I was in bed asleep in that same exact position!

This is intriguing, kind of like I can't take my eyes off of it in case something might happen.
I like how the bottom of the box says 'safe matches'...

I'm sort of holding a contest for the best interpretation of me and my band mate dalton as zombies. We are starting a band and I am going around asking the artists who can particularly draw well in the online community to submit there artist renderings of us as zombies. I will supply photos of each of us. Weird I know but consider it please. Thank you for your time.

I can't believe you wrote this: "You never know when to expect the dangerous warmth of friendship my dear, when you sleep in matchboxes..."

That's exactly how I feel about my "so called female friends" LOL...I get along with boys, not girls!!!

An of-repeated sentiment, yours.
I myself have been an awful female friend to other females. The evilest kind. I own up to this at once, it is the truth sadly.

I also tend to get along better with men, they are more...
WYSIWYG ;)

LOL...I've had quite a few "female friends" who turned into "female enemies" behind my back. Therefore, I only have one female friend (she's like a sister to me)

The rest are females I know, but don't care about that much. Male friends are loyal. At least to me, they are!!!

I used to watch the old cartoons from Warner Bros, all the really random ones with no main characters, and this reminds of of those. I always wanted to be the little mouse or fairy that slept in a matchbox. Oh it brings me back. Great work!

Is it just me, or do I see dust residue on the matchbox? What detail! It's utterly beautiful!
Reply
:iconmeluseena:
meluseena Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2008  Professional General Artist
Yes, there was some dust on that matchbox when I took the photo, and I exagerrated it - although perhaps, the sizing-down of the image for web-viewing size brought on the appearance of some artefacts that look like dust!
