What I see particularly well-displayed in this image are a series of contrasts regarding shape, form and texture. The background with t...

River by loverofbeauty
River
Created using The Tudors Scene Maker on Azalea's Dress Up Dolls.

Back in 2009 I had an idea to write a poem about different types of landscapes (perhaps influenced by the Disney Nature film Earth, a true visual masterpiece). That poem has yet to be written, but I created these landscape personifications in the meantime. As with my other fantasy pieces, I tried to choose colors, shapes, patterns and clothing items that represented the "personalities" of the landscapes. Enjoy.

Sand Snakes by loverofbeauty
Sand Snakes
Created using Lord of the Rings & Hobbit Scene Maker on Doll Divine

I'm really proud of how this piece turned out, but there's a slight awkwardness underlying it. I am HUGE Game of Thrones fan and- probably like many viewers- haven't read Martin's original books. I know there's always modification when a story is adapted for the screen (plus a lot of bitching among the purists), but after reading the book-verse descriptions of the Sand Snakes I was slightly disappointed at the way the series portrayed them. Don't really know where my loyalties lie at this point.

I created this based mainly on the book-verse descriptions and partly on the series versions, trying to match the details of each Sand Snake as closely as possible:
-Obara: severe demeanor, practical clothing, limited colors  
-Nymeria: long braided hair, feminine clothing, overall beauty
-Tyene: cunning expression, blue and white dress, deceptive sweetness
-Sarella: dark skin, curious expression, brightly colored "Summer Islander" clothing

Musings Made Flesh

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 14, 2014, 8:03 PM
A friend of mine has commented several times that writers for television shows are not paid nearly enough for the quality of work they produce. No doubt this is true, but tonight I saw for the first time just HOW true this belief can be.

In the latest edition to my gallery, I used a photograph of an empty pair of shoes to reflect my feelings on the introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop to the NCIS team. While the symbolism of the image may be obvious (for full details, see my gallery), it seems the NCIS writers have fully latched onto my thinking. In tonight's premiere episode, Bishop commented to Dr. Rachel Cranston (Kate Todd's sister, for those who don't remember) that the shoes she has to fill are gigantic, and in some ways may be unfillable.

This is exactly what I was thinking when Bishop was introduced to the show, and, as I mentioned in my deviation, I hoped that Bishop understood that notion. Well, it seems that she does.

Well, I think your "catalogue of ideas" approach worked out well. I could see poets using this as a thesaurus when they're looking for physiological adjectives. Maybe you should "market" it in some way?

Thank you so much! I hadn't thought of "marketing" it, as it were, but it gives more vivid ways of describing physical appearances and in turn I hope that it gives other people ideas of how to describe themselves in more evocative ways.
