Bryce - Poser - Amorphium - Spiralizer - all my own textures on the Shaman and all her outfit, and on the Red Heads. Bird Bodies texture by Dinoraul.
One of the Underground Shamans
I went to this Shaman with some questions about friendship. I often get confused when all the words seem like the right ones, but something feels wrong - maybe. I'm never sure.
She nodded, and told me to just hang out with her and her buddies - and said, “Pay attention.” I spent a whole afternoon there, but nothing happened. Nothing! Nothing at all. Then she said, "Just let it come to you."
Three days later, this is what came to me:
She's a bit severe-looking, but her friends like her anyway.
They spend Time with her. They don't heap piles of words on how they feel about her, or what they think about her, or how they "are there for her."
They just are there.
It doesn't look like much. but - somehow - the caverns of hearts - are filled - a bond is forged. A kind of formless, hard to see, hard to define, invisible treasure - lives.

Very nicely done... great image and message. Those avians look like something out of a Besson movie; inspired idea!

The Red Heads bring a touch of humour and fantasy that contrasts with the austerity of the shaman. Her bird-shaped hairstyle is also a nod to her friends wearing red masks...Your images always challenge the viewer and fix the attention of those who look at them.This one maybe even more with this mix of extravagance and austerity...The text tells us that this is the goal : pay attention to what happens...even when we have the impression that nothing is happening !...Superb work as always my friend !

Beautiful work on this interesting image with the stunning shaman and those strange red-masked birds. Your thought-provoking commentary is apt for these unusual and trying times.

In response to Saby55. My bad, I should have said this at the top - all 3D - no post. Sorry. 🙃 (Bryce has so many talents)

your narrative, which has a lot of depth, illuminates your exotic and amazing image. The idea that a sage with a stern or fierce presence can deliver great depth and even love---without changing a feature or uttering a word---is a true and ancient reality. This shaman's gaze is stark, with an almost fence-like guard running down the center of her face. But that is only the surface. From your narrative, she has great serene depth inside, and by being near her, one will eventually absorb that depth. The old Jewish mystics spoke of "the pain and wisdom of silence," while a Christian mystic, St. John of the Cross, wrote a whole poem and essay on receiving wisdom while sunken in the silence of night (the dark night of the soul), and some of the yogic sages spoke of their 'daytime' being night, because in night they found infinity waiting for them. An ojibway woman (shaman) told me that being receptive is as important as 'doing anything'. So I appreciate this shaman and her strange animal-like companions, who, despite their face-mask faces, may have great wisdom from being around the shaman. Your background is in the red of their faces, and the red of the shaman's jeweled crown. Another of your explorations of the inner heart and soul, w/ your way of visualizing it through shaman after shaman and their worlds. Beautifully written and done.
(thanks for your wonderful comments on my apt art; and I can be messy in the extreme, lol---you just don't see it in those pics. I'm a lot better with others' art than I am with my own!)

Awesome render, great characters. Interesting and thought provoking. Good to see her feathered friends are being protected with their red masks.

True friends don't have to tell you that they are your friends. They just are. I like it.

wow. The longer I stare at your art, the more details emerge. Thank you for sharing.

This really is wonderful, and as Mark alluded, it gives the image a whole new depth.
