Here's a little something from another project I've been working on...

Hi Octo, another interesting work from you.
I won't pretend to understand all the symbology
The weight of Uranium, Mercury?
Maybe the separation of Hydrogen from water?
I have no idea :)
I like the figure, although one critique her legs are too long.
Check the hip to knee length, the knee is pushing out the fabric.

Wow! you certainly like your symbols and colours! Lovely work on the figure and face, you have a very unique style that is most interesting to wander through! I like your work very much. I am in the middle of reading "the selfish gene" and just finished "the brain that changes itself" so your work certainly finds a common link with me! Fascinating books, both! I agree with Andrew, perhaps the legs are a little too long from hip to knee. Otherwise, fabulous job! Keep em coming! Please :clap: :clap: =)). Cheers. Debs.

Ha, thanks! Well done Andrew, better than most. Mercury for it's place in Alchemy, uranium for it's place in history, carbon for it's role in biology... I picked up a bootleg copy of "The Brain that Changes Itself" while I was in Cambodia for a couple bucks. Quite interesting, and a subject I've been fascinated with for a long time.
Typically I draw from imagination, with no visual reference in reality to take from. So I think in the future it may well be advisable for me to do a little measuring and proportion checking before getting started with any of the painting at all.
But as she stands, I'm glad you all enjoy her and that she's being found interesting. I put a lot of thought into it!
