shephards of white dwarfs by barbarasobczynska shephards of white dwarfs by barbarasobczynska
a little commissioned piece,
i felt an impulse to draw some flock of white dwarfs guarded by a couple of android shephards,somewhere on the outskirts of universes, where white dwarfs tend to graze in peace remembering the old times when they used to be shining stars :star::sniff:
(of course it didn't turn out to look nearly as good as i wanted it to look like:no:,but this is pretty normal in my case;))

I'm reminded of various illustrations for fairytales from around the turn of the century in 1900, particularly those by Elsa Beskow. :)

This is so awesome. It looks like something from an old, old, Scandinavian folk tale till you look closer and realize those aren't animals or people. I like that it kind of has two images within it, one you see upon first glance, and another you see after looking closely.

Love the nebula fur to the white dwarves, the convolutedoorgan water pipe systems and the bio-techlasstained attire of the shepherds and their astrixlockworcanes. This has a very chimerical, underground sewer way ambience or a mecha, mangrove marsh meadow... it's really quite something.
