Poser - Bryce - L-Systems - Amorphium - Spiralizer - All my own textures on the Shaman's outfit. Elephant by Debra Ross. Face texture by Ecstacy. Jewelry created by me. All 3D - no Post.
These times we're in have been very disturbing to me, so I had to find this Shaman.
One of the Underground Shamans
The air is cool here. The colors of the skies - are cool.
The Shamans here have Wisdom and Ways that are cool and collected. Steady. Secure inside.
Being attuned to the Order of the Vast, they can easily feel when something is out of the Harmony. What we would call - when something is wrong.
They don't deny. They don't delay. They don't endlessly explain it, or rant and rave about it (I hope I can learn this from her). They never lie, or pretend - to themselves or to anyone - that what is off, or askew - can be reframed to seem OK. They know these feelings of some lack of Harmony - just demand some kind of Action, or - sometimes - merely acceptance.
These Shamans live receptive to the Great Wisdom that can tell them what to DO - if Doing is required . This - is such a great advantage. It enables them - without great fuss - to take whatever action is necessary to restore the Great Balance. These sensibilities make their lives, and their culture - so uncomplicated - even though their world is full of diversity and great unique creativities.
These Shamans live with such a Simplicity inside themselves - and, thus, this Simplicity lives also in their World.

I always really like your pictures. They have an extraordinary effect and radiance. I always like the strong symmetries you use in the creation of your characters. Outstanding work!

If only! Wonderfully tonal image (I particularly like the purple hephalump) and great concept

I love the color palette you have used. Your writing is as beautiful as you imagery. Such a place must be lovely to find and wonderful to retreat to for a time of healing and centering.

We could certainly use a dose of her wisdom and peace... Things are definitely out of balance...
Beautifully done, and I love the cool, calming color scheme.

Another beauty from you. You speak, here, of souls who know that disharmony simply 'is', and can be fixed by merely 'doing' it, or accepting it...You evoke (in your words and image) the silent sureness of wisdom, and walking through strife without being bothered. Maybe you know the old tale of the monk or nun who's told to walk through a castle of dazzling sights---while carrying a glass of water filled to the brim? The teachers tell the novice, walk through the castle and never spill a drop of water. So the novice walks through the castle, never takes his/her eyes off the water, and therefore makes the journey without spilling a drop. At journey's end, the teachers say: "Wonderful! Now do it again, but, this time, bask in everything you see..." (Your shamans can take-in the whole universe, and never spill a drop in the process...peace in the center of activity...) You share a lot of insight. And that purple is the color of the 7th chakra, royal, deep, representing silence and peace. I love your shaman's face---stern at first, but with real knowing. And the elephant has a knowing stare too...and one of your sinewy trees, under a purple-washed sky. An image of hope, beautifully done. (And thank you for all your comments...and your responses to my art, and what you saw in it. I really appreciated all you wrote.)

A fascinating character. Her eyes and skin are unique and quite beautiful. The purple colors are fun. This is wonderful work.

This new Shaman is very beautiful and interesting, as usual! The purple elephant brings a note of humor and mystery which incites to read the text which is very important as usual...Human beings have not been in harmony with this world for a long time! They gradually replaced what is necessary with what is superfluous, and then went from the superfluous to the useless! Today this civilization of which human beings are so proud is almost entirely based on the useless...But they are in no way aware of it...They even imagine for humanity a future even more useless than the present! It's hopeless, but everything that's happening today has long been foretold by the Wise Ones...
