what's this? do I see a new technique? :)
great job! I love the way you depict human figure - reminds me of the drawings on ancient Greek vases

Thank you very much Jonny

It was quite a dimensional trip doing this series . . . I wish people could experience these visions, but all I can share are drawings

Sorry for the late response, as I have been doing so many things . . . I am glad how the mandala has truly resonated to you . . .

Kapayapaan (peace) at biyaya ng pagmamahal at liwanag sa iyo (may you be showered with love and light),

Thank you Matthew

I was originally going to paint the other in a naturalistic manner but I later realize that it was energy that I had to paint

Wonderful work on this one, I love the inclusion of acrylic, it brings a whole new dimension to your already amazing artworks

Thanks Beau

This is one of the few works I have used acrylic in, which I later will explore more on . . . in a sense the color brings a real time feel to my 'dreaming in the dark' inks

The sing in the middle, is that one of the Solomon key sigils?
Reply
:iconlakandiwa:
Lakandiwa Featured By Owner May 16, 2012
Yes my friend it is what you call the Sigil of Ameth

Beyond its abused use in the occult, it is actually a very powerful symbol of transcendence
