Some concept art for a project I'm doing with my friends over at
... This is also a tribute to/master study of the work of
, specifically his "Melty Clay" works, like this one (probably my favourite?):
Here I am imagining a sort of "origin form" of the Melty Clay. In my head, the... forms in his drawings might start their lives in this state, from which many strands would split off to become their own entities. Think of it as a sort of melty star nursery, floating in the aesthetic void.
I thought of a bunch of names for this, but settled on Mucilagogenesis—which I guess is sort of my fake cobbled together Latin word meaning roughly "Origin of Musty Juice".
Apologies and heartfelt thanks to
for letting me play with the emulation of his style. Give me a critique if you have the time, and let me know how I did in my latest attempt at emulating Melty Clay!
