Water Goddess

I'd like to dedicate this blog to my wonderful friend and sister, SeleneLily. She was kind enough to send me this stunning elementalist outfit as a gift! I knew right away it was one of Surreal LeShelle's designs, which are always to die for. Her store is filled with beautiful costumes of so many different styles. They are all of high quality and contain many optional pieces. This Deep Waters elementalist outfit came with the wand and also has a shape you can use if needed. It also comes with either gold or silver trim. This elementalist design also comes in Twilight (purple/blue), Seashore (light aqua), Blood Vine (red), Witching Hour (black), Evening Shadows (purple), and Enchanted Forest (green). Surreal has her main store called Deviance and we also have a small version of her store on Enchanted of Elven Realm. Please stop by and see all her wonderful designs!

Fantasy Art Focus: Shoshisn Shilova (aka: Serg Sonnino)

Guardian of the Forest (taken at Enchanted of Elven Realm)

It's been a while since I've done a blog focusing on one of the many talented Second Life fantasy artists, so thought I would dedicate this blog to a wonderful artist who also happens to be a good friend of mine. His name in Second Life is Shoshisn Shilova, but he also goes by Serg Sonnino on I'd like to start with a quote he truly lives by and I believe is one reason he is such an exceptional artist...

This is the real secret of the arts: always be a beginner. Then we can really learn something.

In the beginner's mind there is no thought, "I have attained something." If you keep your original mind, the precepts will keep themselves. ~ Shunryu Suzuki

Shoshisn's work isn't only fantasy, but he does have quite a bit of fantasy art in his collection. His works are very unique and more of a contemporary, fractal style art. He also seems to favor artwork from nature and includes special people in his life as an integral part of many of his works. He is a graphic designer and photographer by trade in real life, so has brought this wonderful talent here to Second Life for everyone to enjoy :) Shoshisn just recently opened a brand new gallery called, Mother Earth Gallery. This is a must see and has all of his many works displayed including photographs and sculptures he has created in game. I will leave the URL below along with his Flickr stream link. I think the best way to describe and sum up Shoshisn's amazing talent is the fact he can take any simple picture from Second Life and turn it into a true masterpiece! He just has an eye for turning the basic or mundane into spectacular artwork. Now THAT'S talent!
