Fascinating piece............. I like it ................ the lines remind me of the trail sparklers make against a dark sky.
Can you tell us something about the materials/techniques you used, please bobby ?

Thank you all...
This started as a quick pencil sketch done while chatting... that version is posted in the drawing forum. Then I used a digital program called Paint Shop Pro 7 to invert the lines from black to white...
After that, the background was done using a brush tool with very low opacity, that way your lines aren't covered. I mixed some shades of yellow and orange with a textured brush and then adjusted that to appear blurry and using the cloning tool, filled in all the negative space around the figure.
A lighting filter was placed in the corner to give the effect of a "high power" in the scene. Then I sprayed in light tones of violet for the loin cloth, used a fabric filter to give it folds, and added the red highlights last...
If that was all greek to you... it was to me too less than 20 days ago when I downloaded this program as a free trial evalution... go here if you are interested...
To put it plainly, without one of those fancy tablets and pens that have more control... It's alot of pain staking layering and outlining of areas to add color and effects too... I'm sure the traditional approach would be less tedious if not more cerebral, but this digital art stuff is perty kewl... ;) give it a try if you have a few hours to kill and it will take hours! First to download it if you don't have high speed access and more so after you get that hang of it.
Take it from me 20 days from now, you will be wondering why you never tried this...
