Details:

Each horse:


I've never had much cause for worry
And I've not got a lot to say
You'll never find me in a hurry
Because I live my life day by day

People say that I'm crazy
But I'm not that way inclined
I know what I know and I'll happily show
That madness is all in the mind

Twenty-four hours is all that I care for
I believe that's the only way
Twenty-four hours is all that is needed
Because I live my life day by day

People say that I'm crazy
But I'm not that way inclined
I know what I know and I'll happily show
That madness is all in the mind

I'm happy the way that I do things
Continually feeling okay
I've no worries on what tomorrow brings
Because I live my life day by day

People say that I'm crazy
But I'm not that way inclined
I know what I know and I'll happily show
That madness is all in the mind

Well some men seek answers in bottles
And others in degenerate ways
But I don't care much for the question
Madness is all in the mind
Madness is all in the mind
Madness is all in the mind
Madness is all in the mind



This is my picture for the Potion Parade at the #Nordanner group. I decided to go a bit wild with the potions and put my own spin on the regular rectangular background, I think it gives a nice effect.
The idea was to have liparis flightless on the ground, struggleing against the madness that the nightshade that eirene is experiencing in her head and body, spreading and twisting her mind in a constant struggle for control.
I triiiieeeddd to use some of what I learned in my art class for the composition, its not great.. but its something, i think i got the flow down lol and maybe some rhythm... maybe lol.
The idea of having eirene sourounded by thick smokey like tendrils represents the potion itself with its power and beauty as it tries to attach to an innocent. it blocks out the sun and kills out the flowers leaving paris below her with only a small amount of sky and a small amount of ground to hold on to..
