Fire & Ice. THAT is what runs through my mind when I lay my eyes upon this lovely beauty. I have enjoyed SignHerePlease's artwork for some time, now... and this one certainly shows the same level of quality I have come to expect from such a talented artist. There's almost a mechanical look to the subject, but it isn't quite that - the frost on her skin seems so shiny, it almost has a cyberpunk-type look to it; that sheen? Marvelous. The rune-like markings? Exotic & adds a sense of individuality to something that is already in a class by itself. There's also an anger there... I can feel it. The look of thinly-veiled anger stopped me cold (*chuckle*) while I was looking her over. A gnaw at her own lip, ever so slightly... the hooded eyes, speaking of a stalwart soul beneath them... that certainly pleases me. But, those FIRES... The cold blaze issuing forth from her hand, bright & damn-near piercing in its intensity, casts a surge of POWER across this picture - it gives the impression that the energies hiding beneath the frosty shell manipulating them are vast & deep... almost as if she's actually straining to hold them back, instead of conjuring them forth. The dark blaze on her other hand speaks of a duality that is only hinted at - a darkness that lingers in the recesses of this lovely creature's soul; something that SignHerePlease is rather accomplished at displaying. Even...


A gathering of beauty is quite a sight to behold; in this case, it's quite a work of art. I have always appreciated artists who love & support their fans, and I feel SignHerePlease has always been good to their fanbase. Hence, near the time of departure (for a short while) of this talented artist, we are left with this lovely "goodbye", in the face of loneliness, to help all of us fans to get by in the interim. I shall attempt to try to capture, in words, what I see of each persona as they appear to me - if you find my judgement flawed, I won't mind; ...


Darkness lives within us all. It is the bedfellow of madness, the friend of anguish & the sustenance of pain. Rarely, in this world, does it manifest in a visible manner... but here? DARKNESS WEARS A FACE; a face called "Shatter"! So many artists use blac...

When I like something, I endeavor to let others know what I liked... and sometimes, what I have to say actually ain't half-bad.

Hmmmmmm... a look into an OC that apparently is NOT from the mind of SignHerePlease - but, as par for the course, the artist breathes life into what would undoubtedly be just another red-skinned devil chick.
Okay, we'll start with the basics: The obvious demonic flavoring is all over this work, especially in the coloration. Even if it is a soft pink, the way it was lovingly shaded & hued cements the point that this is NOT a Pinky-Pie cosplayer. The bits of blue break it up nicely (not too much or too little), and the purple melds well, helping the entire cornucopia of red/blue contrast to flow together like blood & jiz-... um, yeah. Like two things that flow well together.
*ahem* The wings, as a fascinating side note, have no lined definition; it actually works rather well, in my opinion. I'll bet those were a BITCH to create... but the effort was WELL worth the results!
This is one rough-'n'-tumble gal. Aside from the rendering of her rended garments, I notice the spiked knuckles, the blue spines & the look on her face that says, "Are we gonna fight, or are you gonna fuck me? Either way - I am waiting..." I dig that, really. It's especially adamant in her eye; it looks a bit weary, but the resolve is evident.
The pose... *sigh* I admit, I'm not fond of it. I am NOT saying it sucks, not by ANY means; I just see more potential here that might have been utilized by little tweaks here & there. Still, I'm nowhere NEAR as talented as SignHerePlease, so I'll keep my damned opinions to myself on that matter. If maybe there had been just a little more per-... UGH! NNNNNGH! AAH!

... beautiful artwooooooorrrrrrrk.... noooooo proooooblemmmmmmms....

*shudder* Ah, yeah. Like I said, no problems with the posing whatsoever. Yup, not a one. NOTHING to do with that contract I signed, I promise.
Anyway, my favorite part about the whole thing (aside from, y'know, nearly naked demon chick) are the chains hanging from her arm. They're embedded in her flesh, yet broken. THAT is one of those things that speaks VOLUMES about a character... and something this artist happens to be REALLY good at. I like the story those chains are trying to tell me... and her eye carries the look of someone who had to FIGHT to break 'em.
In conclusion, though it's not their own OC, SignHerePlease has done magnificent work using color & detail to tell a story that would take whole paragraphs to write. There may be no flames present, but there is a FIRE in this artwork.

    I. HAVE. RETURNED.

    ... at least for now.

    I have moved to a place that has 'net access, and I am quite happy to report that I am, at least for the time being, officially back online.

    Feels like FOREVER ago, I lost my connection... to everything, it felt like.  So, now I've that been away so long, I should be able to add a few things to my cobweb-bedecked gallery.

    Have faith, true believers - I'm back.

  Yeah... STILL unable to get online at home.

  *sigh*

  Missing this place as well as the folks here... not to mention my Facebook account... and my SoundCloud account... AND my emails... AND-

  Oh, YOU get the point.

  Stay tuned, as I'll probably explode with stuff upon my return.

  OH - here's a nice nugget o' words for the moment:

  "Wish not upon what you can't have; wishes are for those who cannot bring themselves to make the reality possible."

"It's only smoke & mirrors if you don't want to believe..."



I came up with this phrase somewhere around the tender age of 21.

I had spent an entire day watching the tube. For some reason, there had been a number of "reveal the hoax/secret" type shows on, from the classic Watergate to a reveal-all story about P.T. Barnum. Something about all that saddened me; I didn't know why people would WANT to know ALL these secrets. I mean, where's the mystery?

So, all crestfallen and such, I changed the current station - and found a similar show on magicians. But THIS show turned out to be different.

THIS show revealed how magicians had used their entertainment skills throughout the ages to entertain & lift morale in troops during many, MANY wars. It revealed a few tricks, but left enough behind to lean the viewer towards the idea of a possible, coincidental energy... leaving one with the idea that magic MIGHT be real - and to never stop believing.

This made my day. And that's when it came to me.

Many people find out so many secrets that they become jaded. My thought is because there's no more "magic" left for their inner children to believe in, they feel like they've been robbed of their childhood sense of wonder. It turns people into bitter, spiteful adults. The kind that do bad things because there's nothing good left to believe in. The kind that end themselves. The kind that give up on life & it's many amazing things. The kind that lose their minds.

So, that's when the phrase turned, so to speak. And so, to all out there who feel the despair & drudgery of everyday life, to all those broken hearts who feel as if the world has shown them more than they can stand, to the poets, artists & madmen (and women) who are looking for a reason to do as they should be doing... put trust in the idea that this world ALWAYS has more to offer. There's forces at work on BOTH ends of the scale; GOOD as well as bad.

So, please: keep hope alive... leave your cynicism aside for a bit and just FEEL the magic of existence...

... because it's only "smoke and mirrors" if you don't want to believe in it, after all.
