Variation by reelphine Variation by reelphine
Variation (stories written by Jessica Vertz)

Sunrise may never reach your eyes down in the deeper pockets of the jungle. The gentle buzz of flies and heartbeats of creatures swell and fall in a slow and quiet techno. So low these places, each unique, and varied, are found folded in the foliage. The necessary light is supplied by flowers blooming bright with bulbs of many kinds. Electric, elusive colors cast under changing lights; they dim and brighten with the static created by slithering snakes. Each flower varied, like a show girl in bloom, to draw the animals to their display, and secure the energy they need to proceed to fruit, from seed. Jewel ribbons with eyes of aquamarine, the snakes wind and wander between traffic lights of red, gold, and green. They leave their dives and find these bright nightclubs, lucky to know the ins and outs of a jungle as diverse as a city.

"I'm gonna rock down to, electric jungaloo..."

What a lush and beautifully hideous vision! I hope you don't mind that I say it reminds me of some of Jesse Allen's work because of the weird jungle theme and tropical colors-gone-psychedelic.

I imagine that this was a lot of work but a lot of fun to do, too.

This was made using coloured pencils? No way!
It's so surreal, so abstract and vibrant; it drew me in... Are those your words too? They're very charming.
I'm going to look at all your works from now on. (They're just so appealing to me!)

Wow. This is incredible. Imaginative. Beautiful. Symbolic (?). It took me a moment to recognize the electrical sockets and lightbulbs. Are some parts supposed to look like eyes? Because that creates a good effect, like whoever is in the picture is being watched.

Oh my gosh, where do I begin? This is such a gorgeous piece, and what strikes me especially is how it has that "glowy" feeling like you describe. It is so lush and smooth, and as a colored pencil fan, I am so blown away!!!
Just looking at this makes me feel the humidity and the sense of impending fun~
Wonderful job, dear, keep up the good work! :iconilavplz:

This is traditional art? I've never seen colored pencil that smooth it can be mistaken for Photoshop! I'm impressed.
