Kickin Ze Butt: Black Pearl by Asher-Bee Kickin Ze Butt: Black Pearl by Asher-Bee
Mixed Media: a piece i did with both photoshop and vector items. when i first started with any type of digital coloring, i really had no clue what i was doing. also i had not a clue about true anatomy, or at least a better understanding. i was starting my third year of college when i made the first version. i was testing the waters so to speak. in fact this was only my second time using either illustrator or photoshop. i was also totally afraid of color. ^^; even my colored pencil pieces were light. during my next two years, i came in contact with the most awesome of professors who took the time to teach me about adobe programs. she even kept me as an intern for a semester. ^_^ i owe all i know compter wise to her, and my better understanding of anatomy to a professor who once worked for disney.

"from the bottom of the sea I'll wait. to bring your final breath to boil, i'll kiss you quietly. embracing eternally beneath the tides, for they are darker than my heart, which you have pierced most fervently. do love me for my intentions, and justly so will i love you for yours..."

Just a little something I wrote to go with the idea. This will be my submission for the "Kick Your Own Ass" competition. ^_^ the idea, is that these two are lovers of the moment... a man, thrown to the sea has come to what he believed the end of his life... that final spark is what defines him, and with it a new love so unyielding that her response is immediate. a love that saves and wants no other...

P.S. i'm so full of cheese right now...

I LOVE how the hair actually looks like underwater hair. Not a bunch of random strands sprawled out unrealistically. Very lovely! My best wishes to you, fellow contestant! =D
