Please don't tell my landlord!

...controlled burn conditions existed, with plenty of water on hand, really. The illustration friday prompt is Tango. Based on a photo of Rudolf Valentino with a partner.

Nevair would I confide in your landalord. Nevair would I squelch the wonderment of the artist's art. (Can you hear my French accent?) Was the picture really on fire????? - Jeanne

J-

Real flames + photoshop. The rest is silence!

Jasmine said...

You have outdone yourself. An excellent effect. What better way to capture the smoldering passion of the tango than a real flame? Love it!

Gosh, I never thought you'd add fire to your little paper creations. They're too...papery. Good stuff.

hot (and yes, Caio's sound effects add an extra layer to it all).

Cheers, Susan (my lips are sealed).

Your imagination clearly knows no limits.
Not to get too personal but I sometimes wonder what your personal living quarters look like. I can imagine that walking through your front door is like falling down the rabbit hole . . .

Son -

I am so busted. You have provided me with more motivation to tiday up around here - this time, for sure.

I didn't know that you had posed for Rodin.

OMG! What burning passion :)

INDIGENE said...

Wow! You bring new meaning to HOT! Now that's hot!

EN FUEGO! Great illustration.

Asja said...

you are so creative and imaginative, using real flames for tango illustration-just perfect!

lol, I've been missing out since my last visit.

Son of Incogneato said...

Me and Monsieur Rodin go way back.
I even visited his former studio in Paris once upon a time. While his work may look impressive in photos it is nothing compared to the real stuff.

Hope you didn't tidy too much. Somehow I don't think that's a problem . . .

p.s your landlord says hi. He wants to have a little chat with you . . .
