Entangling

2009-2011
by Raederle Phoenix

This is one of my favorites. I love the colors, the composition, the creativity... I don't think it shows my full capabilities, but I believe it is my best overall work or near to it at this time; (I'm writing this January 2012, just a few days before my 23rd birthday on the 30th of the month).

Entangling is actually a 'scene' in a fantasy novel I was writing in 2009 and 2010 (called "Moons of Blood" originally, and then "Daughter of Crystals" after some serious revisions). It is a story I may or may not ever finish editing and publish.

Part of the "head piece" in this painting was taken from Bionic Dryad, as shown in the first part of this video.

And without further ado, Entangling:

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
