Hold Me Under the Sea by Nambroth Hold Me Under the Sea by Nambroth
I paint some weird stuff when I'm sad. Phoenix based roughly on a heron.
Corel Painter, acrylic brush.

Please hold me under the sea
Or scratch my wings 'till they bleed
Save me
Will you help me to feel the glow?


(Lyrics by Steven Wilson for Blackfield: Glow)

I find this really beautiful. The amount of detail in the phoenix and the water and sky is stunning. I just want to gaze at this painting. :love: And it has a lot of emotion in it too, it can be sad as you felt, or it can be hopeful or peaceful. I think it feels calm to me. Thank you for sharing! :huggle:

This is gorgeous, and I love the general "where's the sea, where's the sky" weirdness. Awesome stuff! Hope whatever's making you sad quickly passes by.

I think cool! The Phoenix is traditionally depicted as a raptor of some kind but who's to say it could resemble other birds as well depending on that particular Phoenix's environment. There's a magical beast for every realm really. :)

I'm confused... It somewhat looks like they're in some sort of shallow water at the shore reflecting the sky, but then the 'sky' looks as if they're under water... Is it supposed to look as this?

I don't want to encourage you to be sad, but this just...words fail me when I try to express the feels it evokes (and I'm completely sober). Your brand of fantasy surrealism is a refreshingly pleasurable slap to the face. Besides the obvious resplendence, the entire composition is like staring within and beyond the healing parts of your psyche and into the abstract collective human experience. Just, dang.

(Also, not sure you're into this, but I was just reminded of the Shpongle lyrics: "Walking on the clouds, reflected on the sand...")
