The Ouroboros is the symbol of a serpent devouring its own tail. It is one of the oldest mystical symbols in the world. It represents (primarily) balance, infinity, and the cyclical nature of all things. Thanks for looking!

Ok, wellll..

It was on my list of things to do anyways, so, might as well check it off the list now while I am here.

(*makes changes to the site's code to automatically add Lisa's images to his favs*)

... ...

Is there an Apophysis flame somewheres in there?

That said..

And sorry for the redundancy of words.. however, and forging ahead.. nice work.

I particularly like the overall colour palette and the snake head itself.

And..

But, of course.. thanks for sharing this one with us, Lisa.

Laughs ... Thank you, Les!

Yes, it's one of my Apophysis doodles (like Dodo). Just goofing around.

I like your artistic skills Lisa. The snake head is an amazing likeness to the real thing. That being said I don't prefer snakes but I do prefer your skill in creating it.

Life's moments are sweet. I just want to capture all that I can of them.

Thank you, Frank. I'm honored!

I actually strove to create an almost comically sweet looking, not terribly realistic snake, because we have so many folks on Caedes who get the heebie-jeebies over anything reptilian. :)

Simplicity at it's best, with a stunning detail on the 'ring'...It has a vague memory of a story I was told many, many years ago!....

I have never used Apophysis...but am will to 'have-a-go'....

Excellent Work at 'Goofing around'..☺

Lisa, What can I add to the other great comments? This is exceptional, and I agree with Frank about the coloring and details in the snakes head. I'm with Les, I should put it on auto to fave your creative works. tigs=^..^=

Join me in the above comments of Les, Frank, Bob, Raj, and Sandi (in particular the one of Les with a humorist touch), because it's HQ artistry with a high level of symbolism too, Lisa.
Think it's the first (artificial) snake that hasn't frightened me, ☺ ☺ ☺ . Would almost have said to it: "Enjoy your meal!"

Thank you, Bob. Apophysis is a flame generator. I would recommend Apophysis 2.02. It's a free download, fun to play with, and easy to use!

Thank you, Raj! :)

Thank you, Sandi. You are a sweetheart. I appreciate you taking the time to say anything at all!

And thank you, C. I commend you for your artistic viewing bravery, because I know that you don't like the creepy crawlies. So I am honored that you even braved a look.

Your snake appears transparent in places and this gives it a slightly glassy texture. I can imagine these as earrings hanging on a ladies earlobe, as reptiles have always been fashionable in jewelry!

Well done Lisa on your illustration, I really like it. (o:

Thank you, Phil! I, too, thought it looked like glass in some places, woodgrain in others. So I emphasized those qualities.

I appreciate your kind thoughts and taking the time to comment!

Thank you, Laura! (Blushes ...)

Thank you, Connie! I know that translucent wood doesn't really make sense, but isn't it fun that in art ... it can exist?! :)
