The Killer

The Killer

Rancho Bernardo, CA

There are two short stories about this shot. First, this is to acknowledge Kent and Kay who left this piece of art as a house present last week. Kent was around many years ago when my second marriage imploded, and since the Praying Mantis eats its mate he thought that I might identify with the gift. ;=(

Secondly, I have attempted to recreate a lighted stage as outlined in a CD I received from NAPP.

other sizes: small medium large original

Pretty neato, Robin. It almost looks like a cartoon character.

WOW! I love it:).Looks like alot of work?(hard to do).

Good experimentation Robin. Esp like the colors.
I notice the PM is genderless -- do both species enjoy canabalism?? If so where do I get a copy of this masterpiece, lol!

I have a feeling this is going to be a popular photo. This is TOO COOL!

Wow! Fabulous colors. Striking image. Both male and female eat aphids, too.

I pray you'll MAN this stage with more art soon =)
Gary Winters23-Oct-2005 02:26
You didn't say whether you could identify, but lemme tell you, I can! I like the figure, and I'm not quite convinced that the photoshop trick looks like a stage. That said, it's still cool with great colors!
Cindy Flood23-Oct-2005 01:25
I love your artistry, but your imagery is kind of scary.
Coleen Perilloux Landry23-Oct-2005 01:15
Great effect. What a story.
Al Chesworth22-Oct-2005 22:41
Brilliant, the artistry is outstanding. Voted.
However, how any one can stand to marry for a second time is beyond me.
Unless the first marriage was so good.
Ed Goodnight22-Oct-2005 21:56
outstanding piece of work
David Royall22-Oct-2005 21:43
Nice effect... Lighted stage, you say? Kent is a thoughtful friend... interesting meaningful gift.
