Taste of Desire by slugette Taste of Desire by slugette
PRINT AVAILABLE HERE [link]

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what Iíve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
-Robert Frost, "Fire and Ice"

Desire to belong, and to be loved...
One who knows the taste of desire knows also of hate, and sadness...

My half of an art trade I did with :iconaizercul: with a theme "Fire and Ice" using Loki
She has already done her half "Ice Prince"
I want to thank her for the poem which gave me the inspiration. It was a beautiful collaboration, which I am honoured with such a talented artist. You must check her paintings!! :)

Reference from Thor screencap.
If you're curious I have a WIPs in my scrap.

This is wonderful - one of the best I've seen and the colours are stunning. Would you mind if I used it as a cover for a story I am writing please. I will credit you - and put a link in my bio page. Thanks x

Oh my gosh, this piece is so beautiful, you've reinspired my muse for his Loki story I've been writing. This is definitely one of my favorite portraits of him that I've seen done so far! Thank you for sharing this amazing work. I love it!

I am happy that my art has reinspired your muse.. I get inspired to do art when I read, and I guess writers get inspired by art too. :hug:

beautiful and somehow really sad...
i love his thoughtful expression, how his gaze loses itself in the distance and the atmosphere you evoked with the fire in the background and your awesome coloring!

for me Loki is all that, beautiful, and sad.
I referenced the scene from Thor movie where he talks with Odin (and Odin falls asleep). The lighting in that scene is beautiful, and I just made it more firey by adding a lot more red/orange and yellow to it.

Thank you for your comment. :)

You know what impresses me the most on this one? THAT IT'S PAINTED IN RED HUES!!!

Because isn't it so much harder than using a cooler palette? For me, it sure a hell is... I would have totally fucked this up and made it boring; but YOU just rocked that thing, it's really great. I like the fine contrasts on his skin and how the color of his eyes balances the whole painting out by creating such a nice tension! \o/

Than you so much :) It means a lot coming from a talented artist!!

I dont' know if it's harder to use the warmer palette.. hehee.. I know what you mean though.. it can look quite boring just using warmer palette.. there's only so much you can do with red/orange/yellows..
