Once upon an ancient and most historic time in the enormously endless reaches of the vastly uncharted heavens that bridge dream and creation together as one,
there lies an unusual yet immortally exquisite love that just reaches and reaches rather bountifully even beyond mere human love itself.
Out of the viscous and ever-flowing semiliquid astral sands oozes the mighty and all-magnificent Celestial Quicksand Goddess,
her stunningly captivating figure a spectacular sight of beauty literally made entirely of the same slimy earth by which she slowly emerges so ever gorgeously;
and from the pulsating and tar-like semiliquid quickclay rises a purest and ever-incorruptible male deity who is her Divine Dragon Husband of Clay,
its immensely powerful body being well-sculpted out of the very same gooey material by which he awakens with such alluring elegance towards his wife.
Together, they are just about to celebrate their deeply unforgettable intimate bliss with one another most fetchingly and then some,
the two becoming one in such rhythmic and wildly divine harmony in their entire creation of a completely original and fertilely resplendent planet...
a phenomenally-pure New Earth, if you will.
Their most sacredest marital love for each other shall utterly be remembered and cherished both,
forever well-etched in our own wondrous lasting hearts of eternity for countless, countless MANY generations to come and beyond...
Sometimes, even the bravest and most daring new originality comes from the most unusual and utterly unlikeliest of places... all leading you towards finding such deep intimate beauty and emotion at its QUITE strangely and seductively powerful, too!!
That said, my absolutely dearest ladies and gentlemen, you are looking right now at quite a revolutionary, brand-new 2012 digital-painting masterpiece of such uncharted and stunningly grand creativity from no less than Adigun Azikiwe Polack (as yours truly!!
!! ), entitled “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
” — a.k.a. Semiliquid Passion II
, the full-on sequel to my earlier work from almost two years ago called “Semiliquid Passion”, which was right here:
This newer piece, as now my 101st official deviation on deviantART, could rather well indeed be the
most, most unusual yet so gorgeously original quicksand artwork ever in this very art community, BAR NONE. I gotta promise you that for certain right there, telling from how it simply looks, and also from its own overall execution between the Celestial Quicksand Goddess and her Divine Dragon Husband of Clay (as well as their *quite* intimate chemistry of the way they caress each other in such purest, untainted, and most eternal marital love for one another), it is just not all that hard for you to find out why.
First of all, just look real closely at the details in the fullest-possible view of “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
”. As you can see throughout, every single grain of sand and clay has been carefully crafted and painted at their very highest quality for this entire picture in its rather high original resolution of 2304x4096, and yet the two different ever-shifting mires — one of tar-like, reddish quickclay on the left; the other of softest, honey-thick quicksand on the right — actually
flow like such ever-beautiful liquid in such slowest and ever-yielding motion, their fluidity an unforgettable dance of such absolute divine beauty that is as hypnotic as it is so hauntingly alluring!! Add to that the fact that the Celestial Quicksand Goddess is a sacred supreme female deity made entirely out of quicksand on the right, and her Divine Dragon Husband of Clay is a purest and ever-incorruptible male dragon deity made of quickclay on the left, and you got an epic spectacular for the many ages, full of deep passionate intimacy and ever-sensual bliss so immortally poignant and unforgettable between the two amourous lovers like you have NEVER, ever seen before period... you can count on that
Secondly, to help this painting live up to its very name of what I am entirely talking about even further on that, since this is indeed a truly surreal work in the vein of the original “Semiliquid Passion” to begin with, where you rotate the new picture of “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
” just 90-degrees sideways from its original vertical view (by either turning your head a little bit or temporarily rotating your monitor to its side) will indicate the many fascinating new interpretations that both represent and symbolize such strongest desire that these two main characters have in their deepest, deepest love for each other. For example, on one rotated-to-horizontal side, where that quickclay dragon is on the top and the Celestial Quicksand Goddess as his wife is on the bottom, you can definitely feel the ever-rich intimacy between the lovers that grow even more spontaneously intense in its own amazingly-passionate tension so beautiful and combustible indeed... it all just speaks for itself, as you shall see.
By the same token, rotate this picture to the other horizontal side, and you can see that very dragon arching its own head, so fondly relaxing himself in a most nirvana-like state where she reaches out to him so they can celebrate their deepest desire for one another, without any regrets or shame period whatsoever. Either way, this digital artwork will quite handsomely open such phenomenally captivating interpretations about these male-and-female beings as husband and wife who *really* love each other for all of eternity, as well as leave you just utterly spellbound... which should
be pretty damn self-explanatory here, I promise you as well!!
(Did I even mention the significant dots on the foreheads of these two main characters in this picture? These two dots are called “Earth Bindis”, an inspiration in which I took it from Ancient Hindu mythology and made my own original spin on it. They help add a really special touch and such sacredly untainted authenticity to this artwork in a big-time way among everything else right here, I will believe!!!
Thirdly, the main entire reason I have created this picture indeed is flatly for the crystal-clear purpose of me thoroughly portraying quicksand and such viscous, slimy substances like that artistically as nothing less than a great, great symbol of such purest beauty and sacredest intimacy between husband and wife alone together, rather than as a gaudy, brain-dead, ass-stupid stereotype of just somebody being sucked down in that stuff in fear and/or uncertainty... I do not do what is popular at all; I do what is completely
and perhaps utterly original.
Why? Because to me, the whole entire ‛quicksand peril’ business is just COMPLETELY MF’ING OVERRATED PERIOD, in that it was quite blatantly imitated, transplanted, and severely popularized way too damn often on TV, in movies, books, stories, comics, 2d/3d animation, print, computer/video games, RPGs, anime, fan-fiction, artworks (including countless multitudes of them — as well as such pointless Second Life shots/frames — all of the same kind these days here on deviantART and also on other sites, too!), and even too much on the internet and YouTube collectively as well all from over the past 100+ years, in which the usual premise is all the same about the well-hidden yet sudden threat in which people (and especially women, too, nude or not!) get sucked down and down into the quicksand or any bog, tar pit, or substance like that, usually struggling and/or panicking as they try to get out alive, all leading closer and closer towards them being inevitably dragged all the way underneath its pulsating, quaking, and inescapably ever-swallowing abyss unless they are rescued or pulled to safety in the nick of time. Look, there are *so* many different variations of this under many different settings and locations, but the overall key truth of the matter once and for all is that its whole stereotypical (and perhaps even silently fear-mongering!) execution in entirety over and over and over really became so excruciatingly plain repetitive, drab, and copycat over the many past decades all throughout — including since the 1960’s-1980’s days as well where such quicksand scenes like that were a dime a dozen, too — and quite unfortunately continuing even right now, including with the 2010 Disney live-action film of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
, the 2010 theatrical Japanese anime feature of Trigun: Badlands Rumble
, the current 2012 theatrical release of The Woman in Black
starring Daniel Radcliffe, and also as well a certain scene-within-a-scene from the 2011 French picture of The Artist
which won most recently a grand total of five (5)
Academy Awards including two for Best Director and Best Picture!! And the rather absurd thing here about that kind of so-called peril is that they even got the real physics of quicksand ALL WRONG, even in its supposedly thick and yielding consistency, too... boy, talk about not doing the math!!! Just wow, no wonder that kind of lazy stuff rather deservedly became so bland, obsolete, worn-out, mawkish, and soullessly uninspired for its own good these days in terms of originality in 2012 and beyond, and it is therefore such a machine-made, dead-zone cliché that needs to be fatally retired. FAST. And that’s it, without excuse, because I personally have seen all that boring, crass, hackneyed crap before too rather many times to last me an entire lifetime and then some. Enough is enough.
It is time for some serious, serious, SERIOUS
brand-new creativity and artistic beauty done right for this very year and beyond, and “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
” would be quite an outstanding place to help get you started, so let’s rock and fricking roll!!!
I am not forcing on you anything that I have said at all in this whole description; rather, I AM just being 110% honest all the way. After all, founding and running my original digital-art group of #digitalBRILLIANCE
for over two years already on dA (and continuing even today, too!!) has personally taught me to just shut the hell up, step it up, and continue and continue to improve my own digital-art quality as well as me actually getting better and better and better in concept, design, originality, and overall execution collectively in order to excite and wow the living hell out of massive audiences in this art community indeed. THAT IS MY JOB.
And I am absolutely loving every, every mother-fricking second of it all, since I do create
with such wildest, fiery passion from the heart and from the heart alone
. And that is all there is to it in entirety.
Period, end, final.
This digital painting is entirely dedicated deeply and wholeheartedly to these pair of RATHER AMAZING current digital-art Gallery Moderators in this art community:
...who continue to do such an incredible job and then some of actually inspiring us new phenomenal art styles and originalities in digital artworks day by day and through the Daily Deviation (DD) features that they present to us every day, inspiring me to improve and step up the overall design-quality to more and more greater levels than ever, even in my around 5½ years on deviantART as well; for that, I *deeply* salute them both from the bottom of my very, very heart personally!!!
Just as especially as ever, I want to dedicate this piece as well to these splendidly ever-awesome people in this art community:
...and also to this fantastic deviant named *Aniusia483
) who runs this amazingly wonderful group called:
...and more importantly too, to ALL of the dragon- and romance-lovers at heart
, to which I dedicate this work of “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
Last but flat-out not least period, this artwork right here is *also* my birthday present in 2012 to this most incredible lady on deviantART:
...who is quite a spectacularly resplendent 3-dimensional fantasy artist that you must NOT ever miss, so check out her page and fave (
) her many, many phenomenal works that are sure to just take your breath away in such jaw-dropping awe!!!
To sum up, “Quicksand Goddess and her Dragon Husband of Clay
” is my very, very latest 2012 digital painting original that takes the whole entire, carefully well-crafted implementation of not one, but TWO (2)
different types of bottomless quicksands and actually channels that into fully encapsulating such everlasting love and immortally intimate beauty between husband and wife in rather a positive and spectacularly-creative way most artistically, and such phenomenally-painted-and-executed originality like that from me that was done *without* a drawing tablet period is just something that cannot be ignored by the hugely massive deviantART audiences worldwide; rather they will definitely go “WOW!!” in a jaw-droppingly excellent way and then some once they take a good full look at this as my 2nd-ever surreal piece in this art community since I first signed on as dA member way back on November 2006, I gotta promise you that for sure, too!!!
Boy, if this ain’t the sheer absolute earmarks of a TRUE
digital-art visionary on deviantART, what will!?
