Prompt: Star Song
prompted by: Lorna (Comtessa), during Sketch Fest #98 (May 2018)

Silver metalic acrylic on dark blue textured card stock, 2"x5". Brushwork practice, and oh boy do I need practice. Still riffing on heterodyne music glyphs.


Kathy Nutt says: This is very cool! ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: Thank you!

Miss Harm says: I don't know what heterodyne means, but this looks awesome! I imagine it might sparkle or shine in person? ~ Reply?

     mikka replied to this: Agatha Heterodyne of the Girl Genius comic often hums or otherwise makes distinctive music while she's working. (It's apparently a Heterodyne family trait.) This appears in the comic as music-like glyphs: (In that example -- more extensive than most -- she's playing the music and using it to direct the clanks she built.)
     mikka replied to this: And yes, the metalic paint doesn't photograph well. It's a relatively subtle sparkle in person, much less dramatic than the shine the copper has.
