This is Adigun Azikiwe Polack’s *very* first brand-new artwork on deviantART in OVER A WHOLE YEAR, digitally hand-painted in 2014 using only a single mouse and absolutely no drawing tablet at all!!!
|From many beautiful, rich, ever-shifting, and thick slimy quicksands artistically symbolizing the eternally passionate love and sacred erotic purity between husband and wife together, to such other gorgeously exquisite wonders of such uncharted new magnificence in art, prepare to witness and have your mind BLOWN AWAY by the strangely quite unusual yet most resplendently original style and artistic new vision of Adigun Azikiwe Polack!!|
All you have to do in order to enjoy them is to just have a wide-open mind for sheer art creativity and a love for the unusually beautiful in general... it is that simple.
|This is without doubt my *very* first-ever purer-quality and more natural-based digital-painting artwork piece that I have ever, ever, ever, EVER done in my entire almost-six-years in this very art community. Period. And it is undeniably my longest-developing artwork to date throughout my entire 2011-2012 season on dA, too!!! !!|
Resplendently entitled “Eternal Goddess of the Flowing Sands - Zhaleeku”, this artwork original not only honors the great and wondrous intimate sacredness of the endless desert and its vast, uncharted, and splendidly untamed wonder within, but even the viscous, clayey, softest, and bottomless taffy-like quicksand itself is used in just such a way as to ACTUALLY represent such abundant blossoming beauty and such phenomenally glorious new life in the splendid empowerment of women all as a great, great symbol in order for them (and even you as well!! ) to successfully rise up and just overcome all the harshness and rough edges that life throws right at you most unexpectedly... all while enjoying the entire journey throughout!!! Now how is that for a premise of such wonderful new originality, hmmm, as it sure FLATLY blows away all of the blatantly hackneyed, heavily copycat, mechanically clichéd, and therefore rather irrevocably ass-backwards quicksand scenes that we have quite seen *way* too much of on TV, reality shows, anime, and in movies where panicked and/or struggling people suddenly end up being sucked down and down right towards a fully-swallowing oblivion if they do not get out fast enough, you know that now?
Being indeed my VERY FIRST pure-painted digital piece without much use of the special effects filters and stuff like that at all, this entire artwork was done through and through using a mouse only. Absolutely NO drawing tablet whatsoever.
Please do not miss this one as you immediately full-view it in its entirety, too!!! !!!
|Imagine... somewhere in a far-distant prehistoric era, where deep in the well-hidden and endless primeval quicksand-like swamps of such darkest, softest, stickiest, and ohhhh-so-warm melted pitch, you see something slowly rising up to the surface.|
A huge and viscous jet-black bubble emerging, perhaps?
No, but rather something so much more.... if you keep watching, you will finally see before your astonished eyes an ever-so-utterly gorgeous adult female spirit being made entirely out of the purest, living tar itself as she is slowly rising from this vast slime pit of such primordial ooze indeed, her ever-sticky yet quite so silky-smooth body an absolute sight to behold indeed!!!
This powerful and most loveliest female tar spirit is well-known simply as La Brea Woman, a rarest yet immortally sacredest Native American prehistoric legend that has just successfully been unearthed from the bottomless tar pits and is coming to such fullest, resplendently resurrected new life again in my own digital-painting work right here entitled “La Brea Woman Awakening - Ultimate Master Revision”, a rather gorgeously captivating 2012 remake of my already great and best-loved artwork original “Brea Woman Awakening” from 2008. !!
This rather, RATHER special artwork has originally been created by me especially for you in honor of my 35th birthday that first took place on Monday, May 28, 2012. !!
|This is the official 2009 1st-place winner of JunkbyJen’s Think Pink IV competition in the Pixel-art category, in which you are about to experience the most beautiful and perhaps so symbolic pink heavenly sanctuary you will ever want to enjoy time and time again... synonymous to healing us all and helping us FINALLY conquer breast cancer for good!!! !!|
Full-view is A MUST, as this picture is originally created in 100% pure, hand-drawn pixel-artwork form. !!
Manip Academy 2: Soft effects in PhotomanipulationToday's Manip Academy article was written by Cinnamoncandy. I am posting it for her, but the full credit for the tutorial should go to her. Please take a moment to share some love and gratitude on her page!Manip Academy 2: Soft effects in Photomanipulation by Aeirmid
In today’s Manip Academy blog I’m going to teach you how to achieve a softening effect with your photomanipulations. This is a trick that I often use, especially for fantasy and emotional style pieces.
NOTE: When I do this technique it is usually my finishing step, so my image is duplicated and my layers are already merged.
Step One: Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. I usually set the Radius at 3.0 pixels; however, you can adjust it to your liking. Click okay.
Step Two: Go to Edit>Fade Gaussian Blur. Set the opacity. Again, you can adjust it to your liking. I often use 25 to 30%. Set the mode to Soft Light. Click OK.
|These are just some of my personal picks of the *very* best photography/artworks that were created by our amazingly brilliant artists on dA from within this past month of August 2014!!! |
They are SURE to truly inspire your creativity in such a richest and most mighty way... so please enjoy them indeed!!! !!

“Of ever-greatest fluid passion, of stunning quicksand-like beauty...
of viscous flowing silkiness, of such richest and unusually resplendent originality divine!!!”
— Adigun Azikiwe Polack
I am Adigun Azikiwe Polack, and I came to deviantART since November 2006 with such an awesome MIGHTY passion... a neverending drive and desire to create original artworks that are just so richly beautiful and much more unusually damn fascinating than ever before, using my own unique and most whimsical approach to creating art that I am sure you are gonna love!!! !!
Using just a mouse and Paint Shop Pro 7 alone (and without even a single drawing tablet at all!!), I am very currently stepping up and kicking up the overall quality of my artworks right up to the level of the big-league artists on dA, including in such recent and classic digital painting works of mine as:
La Brea Woman Awakening - Ultimate Master Revision
The Lovers of the Sacred Sands
Hericorn of the Heavenly Night - the HD Digital
Embracing the Sacred Succubus of Melted Chocolate
Controlling the Quicksands
...and even “Eternal Goddess of the Flowing Sands - Zhaleeku” as well that you are QUITE welcome to enjoy indeed, for example.
Also, with my own original and fastest-growing dA digital art group with Aeirmid, PurpelBlur, archanN, and Lilyas called digitalBRILLIANCE:
...and also continually learning to be such a WONDERFULLY supportive voice to the dA community in general, I am doing my utmost damn best to become quite a blessing as much as ever to you, this whole art community in general... now even more than ever before!!! !!!
I really and genuinely hope that you become more and more enthralled and excited by many of my own works, and do enjoy your stay for as long as you like... WELCOME!!!
