Those are both great Zwapa !

Your pen work is really clean and detailed, and I am kind of digging what you did for the background on the Tiger.............

Zwapa, incredible creations! How skilled you must be to draw that precisely with something as permanent as a pen. And the cat? Absolutely beautiful. I particularly like the color scheme of the background “noise”. It pairs nicely with the tiger without upstaging it. The background also looks like it has texture or volume, and it’s brilliant! Thank you for sharing!

My sister has been doing this dot art. It's all freehand, I'm impressed with how even she keeps everything. Really fricking cool looking in person up close.

So I play a lot of Dungeons and Dragons, and I think about it even more. In playing this game with my friends, we create much art together through collaborative storytelling. This week, because of a certain character’s backstory, the discussion of auras and what colors our characters’ auras were came up. While I can describe what my character is like with words, the visual representation of the aura helps things, so I made it. And I thought I’d share it here.

She is mostly indigo/violet, having complex connections to her ancestral guardians. She has deep feelings and often uses creativity as an outlet for them. The orange sun-like shape in the center represents her core determination to be physically, mentally, and emotionally strong. The dark, murky purple tendrils around that sun represent her insecurities, self-doubt, and attention-seeking tendencies (stemming from a really rough childhood). The green lines represent her caring and loving nature for her friends. The bit of red along the green represents her passion and determination to get what’s in front of her done. The orange shapes represent her childlike enthusiasm when it comes to working with the rest of the adventuring party.

The bits of white represent the parts of her that remain wholesome and innocent, as she is only 16 and lived a sheltered childhood. The flower-like shapes indicate her deep love of and connection to nature, as her first friends were wild mares roaming the fields just outside of the political district she was raised. The squiggly and curvy lines represent her chaotic nature, oftentimes feeling deeply and acting on impulse before most things.

While my character and I share some similarities, we are more different than alike. It may be cool to draw my interpretation of my own aura next.

Love all the symbolic representations you put into this Pepper !

I have percieved aura's for a long time. Not as a constant, but when I feel open to it.

I have also had my aura photographed on several occasions with a meditation group I joined, and was not really surprised to see the coloration was pretty much as I already saw.....

 

Your symbolism is quite perceptive. I am thinking you must have a good understanding of what your psyche is blended from?

Thanks for sharing that.

I really appreciate your response, Skywatcher. The symbolic representation was the focus of this exercise. How could I best represent how she, my character, is with only color, shape, and design? Instead of describing it to my party, I decided to make it digitally.

Aura photography is very intriguing to me. I have an idea of what mine may look like, but I’d love to see it with my own eyes instead of just feeling it in my chest. Though my symbolism for my character’s aura was accurately portrayed, I think that may be because I made her. I didn’t and haven’t exactly been able to construct my own personality and backstory the way I was able to for my character. I feel I may know myself less thoroughly than I know her. Or maybe I’m selling myself short, I don’t know.

I feel my aura would at least have some yellow, green, and indigo in it. Maybe some smiley faces and hearts for little symbols or something. Happiness and love are two of my favorite things in this world, so they seem appropriate.

Thanks again for your response. It means a lot to me :)

We'll ride the spiral to the end
And may just go where no one's been
Spiral out, keep going

I’ve been having a bit of fun editing pictures I’ve found here on Mycotopia. Both pictures were uploaded by batty007 back in August of ‘21. I hope you enjoy the little scenes I’ve added!
