Who needs an LHC,we've got us by meluseena Who needs an LHC,we've got us by meluseena
:)

This took aroun 20 hours.. my eyes feel (and taste) like two fried eggs.

Incidentally, just in case you don't know what an LHC is, it's a Large Hadron Collider, [link] the biggest science experiment ever made. In a nutshell, it took decades to build, cost billions, and its purpose is to send high speed protons round a tunnel and smash them together, to make conditions alike to the big bang then observe them.

:) I can think it's similar to when two very alike people collide. But I'm hyperbolating of course.. I'm an artist.. I'm allowed to be a drama queen! :P

Since so many have expressed a curiosity regarding my digital collages, I posted a step-by-step WIP of one in my old blog. Please have a look dears. :)
[link]

There you can see how small photo parts are assembled to form a single face off many different parts from different faces, and patterns are cut out and airbrushed to create a mix of painting and collage.

All photo parts not from my own stock are heavily composited from small parts of photos sourced on the creative commons, mainly from these two sites: [link] and [link]

Thanks. This is one of my pieces that won't be popular, because people won't get it :P People understand little red riding hood snuggling the wolf... but not this.

Or maybe they are just not interested :D

I'm bound to be inappropriate (a forewarning) but I couldn't help being amused by the idea of two alike people colliding, resulting in a big bang. I suppose that could be a really good thing, or it could require police intervention. :pissedoff: (not pissed off, just the only emoticon I could find that ends in an explosion)

The image is gorgeous, of course. And thank you for the bit on your technique, it adds another dimension to the experience of looking at it.

But I don't see how you are inappropriate? It is exactly what I meant by it?

:) I didn't think I was being inappropriate, actually. But, I'm sensitive to what I write these days because I got my wrist slapped recently. I didn't think I was inappropriate then, either.

I have a tendency to shoot from the lip (or keyboard) & sometimes what I think is humor backfires. Ooops.

I shoot from the lip too, and have a very cynical sense of humour that often bothers people :P So maybe we both didn't find it inappropriate because to us it wasn't :P

What I like about the internet is that I can be inappropriate without having to suffer the awkward silences and prolonged strange looks. People might be relaying such silences and looks to their monitors.. but I don't care. I am free to be myself.. at least online!! Allow me the mask online!!

Don't censor yourself. At least not with me. You have a right to speak your mind you know.

well...smart-asses rule. Bring on smart, inappropriate comments.

I usually don't sweat what I say. Until I get my wrist slapped. I confess to the usual artist-type contradiction, who cares? in contradiction with a little...um...hyper?...elevated?...sensitivity.

There is always a risk in type. You can't see the smile, the glint in the eye, the eye roll that tells you not to take this too seriously...

True story: (apropo of nothing)
My father died recently. We went to the funeral home to make arrangements- his coffin (don't call it a box- I learned that), where he'll be interred, do you want a limo?...) We chose a nice uh...not exactly a coffin, but...essentially a wooden cot (he was being cremated). The agent at the funeral home wanted to know if we'd like to view Dad, maybe visit with him for a bit. Well, of course. They retrieved him (for a moment I was almost certain we'd walk into the room and I'd have to say, um, this isn't him. It was). We spent a little time with him. Wished him a good journey (talking to dead people is like talking to a car without a driver). Touched his forehead. Went back to where the funeral agent was. She asked if we'd touched him. We told her yes, & that he was very cold. And she said, well, of course, we had to pull him out of the refrigerator.

Which I thought was really inappropriate.
And perfect.
And really funny.

Our funeral agent's name was Angel. (I swear)
