SMOKE PORTRAITS are ethereal smoke images, in which, I see eerie and mystical faces—not everyone has this ability, but I guess I am very aware of such “spirits” living inside my smoke portraits. This is a new series, and DARTH BANE is the first portrait of this series (created 9 May 2018). This particular smoke portrait was influenced by the fictional work, “Path of Destruction (Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 1)”, [Mass Market Paperback – June 26, 2007 by Drew Karpyshyn]. Darth Bane, is in a single word, a “BADASS” (yes—”Badass” is one word in my account). He is also very Evil. He is the definition of Evil Personified. I have a feeling that like my Fire Portraits Series, most all of the portraits of this series will be pretty evil, or mystical appearing.

MARBAS, EDIT B Fire Portrait


Creation Date:  8 June 2017

“Fire Portraits” Series.

Year:  2017.

Influence:  “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs:  Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.


Note  1:  After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”  Note 2:  One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels.  On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity,  and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”.  Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons. Note 3:  My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire.  Angels of fire, I think is a contradiction.  


Note 4: “MARBAS” is a fallen angel that takes the form of a lion.  Marbas is not a character in the Brust story but there are many angels in the story, and not all are mentioned by name.
