Cream of the Planet

Sensual, Thoughtful, and Very Naughty

Digital Art: Brave Ulysses (Mermaid)

Do you gaze across the ocean pondering its vastness, mystery and unexplored depths? Β Our collective history is filled with references to sea creatures, sirens, and ancient gods. As our technology has progressed, some of this fascination has shifted towards the unknowns of space. Still, the ocean elicits strong feelings of wonder and longing…perhaps fear. What is it about space and the ocean that calls to us? There is an element of the heroic journey at play that inspires our sense of adventure and fuels our dreams and/or nightmares. Carl Jung suggests the ocean (and space) are symbolic of the mysterious unexplored depths of our mind and the vastness of our soul.

What do I wonder and long for…perhaps fear? On my journey, I am filled with wonder and longing for her AND I fear drowning in her body.

“You see a girl’s brown body dancing through the turquoise,
and her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
When your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.”

Lyrics by Eric Clapton and Martin Sharp

Original digital art ~ Michael.

    Oooh, gorgeous! I always loved that song. Always wanted to be a mermaid too. And live in Atlantis with a sexy merman! πŸ˜€ Mermaid 21 is my favorite, she looks enraptured. ❀

      Thank you, Meg! πŸ™‚ That song is definitely a classic and seems to find itself on most of my playlists. Thanks for mentioning a specific piece…I forgot to give them more creative names, ha! #21 does have some ruins in the background…sort of a lost city feel. She is frolicking and tempting in that image. ❀

    These are beautiful, Michael! You are so good at this digital art! I am drawn to the ocean too but also slightly terrified. πŸ™‚ I like the concept of a woman drowning a man in her body. That sounds so sexy and profound.

    Michael,
    Love the beautiful artwork, more displays of your talent for your gallery. I really love the underwater scenes and of course the lovely mermaids. There are many mermaids on WP who I’m sure would help you drown your troubles…
    I can fully appreciate your fear of drowning. The waters represent our emotions, our creativity and our sexuality. The second chakra, the sacral chakra, is often considered the first feminine chakra. Interesting because women carry the energy of creativity and emotionality…
    In my humble opinion, a mermaid who is true at heart would show you how to swim in the deep waters and learn to breathe in them. She doesn’t desire to allow you to drown.
    While as a woman, my fear is of being harvested. While I want my garden to be owned, I don’t want my (underwater) plants to be stripped of their beauty and their casings cast aside. So for much of my life I hid my gifts from men who I’ve felt were treasure hunters…and I still do, less so though.
    May you find the mermaid who shows you to truly swim in the deep waters. AnaΓ―s Nin has a beautiful quote about being a mermaid that was quite lovely, that I found the other day looking for her “bud” quote. I’ll see if I can find it again.

      Thank you sweet (and very sexy) Tiffany :-* Glad you enjoyed the gallery…you had the first sneak peek, ha! Mmmm, I like the idea of a wet WP mermaid…. You always leave me pearls to consider and I do need to learn more about the chakras. I adore your sentiments about a mermaid not allowing me to drown and, instead, giving me new life. This is a very powerful visual and strikes an emotional chord. You have a special touch for doing this. :-* I don’t think it is unwise to protect your garden from the plunder of treasure hunters. I’m happy that your own journey has lead you to at least recognize some divers appreciate the splendor of beauty that flows beneath the surface in the vast unexplored depths of the mind and soul. <3:-*

      I’ve been down as far as 1600 feet. I know and understand your fear. My biggest fear has always been to be eaten alive by a shark, LOL! Take my word for it bud, there’s nothing wrong with being afraid…it’s a natural instinct.

    A very nice song it is indeed. The images are very lively beautifully incredible. I love it, you are quite creative detailed with talent. A excellent job you’ve done Sexy Michael, makes me think of a ocean warmed by the sun’s heated passion. Moisture like sweet silky velvet touch luring the body to go deeper into it’s strong thrashing thrusting waves. Penetrating desirable caresses making the body float in exstacy. Sexy stimulating exotic experience. Thinking of this makes me very excited. Breathing heavily licking my lips as my eyes close toes curl hips swirl and achieve as I am pulsating between my thighs. Fingers are touching that special spot, wet i feel my moisture coming down. Deep my fingers are so deep in me satisfyingly mind boggling sensation of sexual explicit bliss. My breast are touched by my hands I moan as i am so far gone into pleasures hands of lustful climax.

    Michael, this is a wonderful and creative post. Your digital art is terrific, my favorite is the black and white image. Love Cream, the song of course is perfect.

    I think that the depths of the ocean and space are hard to fully comprehend due to their vast properties, and for most of us this understanding is unattainable. I don’t always agree with Jung, in this instance I do. There is much that we can’t explain or don’t know about the mind and the soul, which makes for very intriguing speculation and thought.

    Wishing you well, please take care. ~ Mia

I was going to do it for several of them but had too many images already, ha! Loved the way you expressed your thoughts around what we don’t know about the mind and soul but continue to search for deeper understanding. I hope your Friday is amazing just like you! πŸ™‚

    I really like your artwork, it’s so unique and proper spot on and the most thing I love about it is how you beautify every part of a woman within your work, you sort channel their sexuality, behaviour and their emotions and confidence and nonetheless sexiness within them. It’s really good!

    I studied art that’s why I like reading past the image and read deeper into it and yours is really a masterpiece. And you are a good writer, I proper enjoyed reading this

      Thank you so much, Samantha! :-)<3 This comment is really, really special and greatly appreciated. I've never had any formal training but have vested a lot of time in working with photos and now trying to create my own images. I feel like I am making progress but know I still have a long way to go. Your feedback though is so very encouraging and I also appreciate the beauty, sexuality, confidence, and emotion you feel in those images…I certainly feel this way about women. I'm trying to visit your blog but seem to be having problems accessing it.

    However the beauty of the ocean hides the dark depths 😱😱 ahh just thinking how bottomless the ocean is! It’s dark! One of my fears!
