Modern-Day Gisli and Signy – 4th of July snuggles

I swear, I’ve been up to more than fangirling and goofing off!

To prove it, here’s some more art-ness 😀

Gis-Sig_4thJuly_Snuggles

I experimented pretty heavily with the lighting and shading to give the impression of fireworks more than to show them actually occurring. I’m pretty pleased with the effect, though I imagine I could probably refine it more. I may do more *DRAMATIC LIGHTING* images to practice with this in the near future.

As far as names: I have come up with a couple of alternatives for Gisli’s name update: Gloria, Gina, or possibly Alice. I don’t know why, but older-fashioned names just suit them best for me. Maybe Claudia?

Any suggestions are still welcomed. Drop me a comment if something awesome occurs to you 🙂 Or if you really like one of the names I’ve thought up. More will be coming, so keep your eyes open 🙂

  1. I’ve made my living as an essayist and designer (specializing in 19th century illustration adaptation application) so I’m looking at your work with that trained eye when I say – this is fantastic. I love it as is. I also love the way it allows the viewer a sub-sight of interpretation you might not have intended (the left profile, the right skunk head looking up, two cockatiels kissing, a sleeping kitten). And even though I’m a pastel-kinda-gal, your darkness creates a lightness. Well done woman! First name that came to my mind? Blanche.
