snails are hermaphroditic so they could do each other

Such an unexpectedly beautiful thing. Beauty from a "vulgar"/"disgusting" source?

I love this graphic style and symmetrical composition.

Vulgar/disgusting? Hmm... I don't know, maybe. :)

I don't think of them that way, but a slimy, alien-looking creature like a slug or snail is not often hailed for its beauty, and sex is often considered dirty or vulgar. But the combination of the two still looks very elegant and lovely the way you have depicted them here.
After a friend of mine shared a video of leopard slugs mating, I have never been able to think of them as anything but beautiful, but this is the first painting i've seen with the subject.

Ah, I see what you mean. Yeah, snails aren't usually described as beautiful animals, but I do think that the concept of having their "house" on their backs is undeniably cute and fun.;)

Well, the two snails are getting it on and then one of them says "Your place or mine?" which is kinda funny because they are both carrying their "place" on their back. :)

Oh, all my paintings are for sale. However, I won't be able to let this one go just yet, because I'm planning on having it in my upcoming exhibition/art-show. :)

jenansul Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2012
Ahhh, unfortunate. I found several others in your portfolio that I like as well. Although I doubt that I could afford something so great as one of your original pieces. Do you have prints available of any of them?

:icondanielkarlsson:
DanielKarlsson Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not really established in any way. I see less impressive stuff in galleries all the time being sold for ten times the price I would charge for it. Prints are available through DA, right?
Reply
:iconjenansul:
jenansul Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Hah. Yeah, that is kind of crazy. If I could afford one of your originals, I would love one. But I don't have high hopes; I'm a poor artist & student, haha. I'll send you a private note with a few selections and you can let me down one at a time. ;]

Yeah, but dA takes a cut. You should look into professional printing options around you and choose a selling price & calculate your profit off of that.

Well, do send a note and we'll see. :)
Yeah, DA does take a cut, but that doesn't affect you, does it? ;)
Do you have any tips on printing options, in case I'd be wanting to look into that? :)

Contact any art / fashion photographers or modeling agencies in your area. Both would have an idea of where to get high quality prints made, or may even be able to make them for you. Failing that, ask around with acquaintances -- some offices have high quality printing machines and a friend may be able to get you a deal. There is always printing / mailing centers like the American Kinkos / FedEx, but I don't know how high of quality you can get through them or what you may have in Sweden. :]

Well, I do know some places where I could get prints like that. I was more curious about websites that offers kinda the same service as DA, but cheaper and with better options. I've gotten orders for prints before, and it's too much of a hassle to have to deal with it and I can't charge as much for a print as I would with an original.
Mostly I'm just interested in making my digital pieces available for a cheaper price. :)
THANX!!! :)
