Poissons Volants : Poissons Les Yeux Globuleux by jasminetoad Poissons Volants : Poissons Les Yeux Globuleux by jasminetoad
Part of my "Poissons Volants" series ("Flying Fish)" - combining my love with sea creatures and Rococo era portraiture - " Les Yeux Globuleux" (the pop eyed fish known in English as the Black Moor goldfish) is a stunning baroque portrait of a lady in a beautiful dress standing in a misty forest landscape surrounded by flying black moor goldfish. I had a black moor goldfish when I was growing up, they really are special little creatures. Limited Ediion Canvases are now available at Pop Gallery Orlando at Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort and posters & prints are now available online. My original acrylic painting. Prints available at [link] and [link]

I love black moors. I had some as a kid and they were so endearing. I really like the butterfly-patterned fins they hav egoing on here. :)

Absolutely beautiful work! You wouldn't happen to be a fan of Mark Ryden, would you? Because you're drawing style is very veerrrry similar to his way of drawing. It's amazing! I love your art style lots! :)

This is lovely! I'm not sure if you intended the goldfish to be the focal point and the character to be more of a background, but that's how it seems to me. But I love the fish so much! Such gorgeous colors!

I have a book with some of your art in it (Big eye art) I haven't looked through it in quite a while but I recognised your work straight away. I think the butterfly wings on the fish look so beautiful and dream-like and the details in this piece are just amazing!

I used to have a fish like those. It changed colors over time. It went from black to orange-gold.

This is so strange- I've been fascinated with your work ever since I picked up a book on faery art nine or so years ago, and I've been on DA for almost as long, but just now I find you here because you got a DD! A well deserved feature, congratulations. :)

The fish are all like "You came to the wrong neighborhood muthafuckaaaa"
Kidding aside, your colors are just amazing ^^ The atmosphere of the whole picture seems to be very dark and gloomy, yet it's not drab or dreary at all. It's still manages to become bright and colorful. Also, the eyes of the girl in the center is just hauntingly beautiful :heart: Congrats on the DD

Though this comment may be lost in the plethora of comments you are bound to receive today for this magnificent piece of art I must comment nonetheless.
Everything about this is simply stunning. The coloring is beautiful throughout the piece and it possesses a calming yet sinister feeling to it.
The Black Moor goldfish are gorgeous with the butterfly wings and the Black Moor goldfish pendant on her necklace was a beautiful touch.
The Girl is Elegant and all of her facial features, right down to the way you drew her eyelashes and her eyelids, are undeniably exquisite.
This piece is truly worthy of a Daily Deviation and it is a breath of fresh air seeing a piece as wonderful as this as a DD rather than other more risqué pieces that are becoming DD's more often than before.

Thank you for making this artwork.
