Alien Brain Hemorrhage by zapatones Alien Brain Hemorrhage by zapatones
Done for the Cocktail Party contest at :iconminishizzle:

I'm not sure if it fits in with the other entries but I guess that's a good thing :D

I went for weird cocktails (I actually googled that) and chose the Alien Brain Hemorrhage [link] I'm not too sure about the taste of the actual drink but the look is almost hypnotic.

Ingredients:
Baileys
Granadine
Blue curaçao
Peach liquor

This was more like a miniature digital painting with a few touches of vexelling (over my own sketch) and Photoshop's filters.

For the blue ripples and some of the background effects (the red hue) I used some of *Lavah's brushes [link] The rest was done with the regular hard-edged round brush

Alien Brain Hemorrhage by ~zapatones really pushes the boundary between digital doll and digital painting with this surreal piece. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

Reminds me of that '70's French sci-fi movie "Fantastic Planet."

I've checked the trailer on Youtube. Well, I don't think this doll has so much to it as that movie, but thanks a lot for the comment. I've added that film to my list, might be interesting to watch :D

Got to warn you, though: it's a little bit on the slow, somewhat-dull side. If you can get past that, it is a very weird but beautiful movie. Hope you enjoy it.

Thank you. I spent so much time on her body that when I got to her head I couldn't remember what I wanted to do with it so I made it part of the goo. I think it worked :D

That's over seven hours of work, without counting the hours I spent on the previous designs before ditching them :p It took a while but it was worth it :D

Haha, I was looking at it and I was expecting the title to be something like 'Loneliness'.... but then you pull 'Alien Brain Hemorrhage' on me. Nicely done.

zapatones Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
Thank you! I'm much more practical XD

It was done for an inspired by cocktails contest so I chose a drink and then came up with the design. And then I deleted it all and started over because it wasn't working and so this lady was born. I guess the embryo theme was accurate after all.

Also, I suck at naming things, if I ever have kids, I'll give them numbers. :p

It's funny, because I actually know someone named Seven. You're not alone, apparently.

I've heard some weird names before like I once heard of a Cuban girl named Usnavy. Seven is a new one though.

There's a small village called Sietes (literally "Sevens" in Spanish) but calling your child like that? Never heard of it. Is it wrong that I like it?

IT'S JUST.... IT'S JUST CRUEL. It's cruel to do that to a kid O.O I mean, I also know of a kid name Vagina.

Really? I hope we're talking about a girl at least. :fear:

This conversation has definitely made appreciate my name. Now whenever I feel like hating it I can always think that at least they didn't name me after my mom's genitalia.

Yeah, I actually used the video as an inspiration instead of using just pictures. Be careful though or you'll spend hours looking at random cocktail videos on Youtube. That's what happened to me :p

I'm glad I got away from that video then - I am a recovering youtube-aholic and have gone from watching one thing to finding "that weird part of youtube" a lot XD
