Pictures of Lucent Sylphs!

I wish I could commission a glass artist to make an exact representation of a Lucent Sylph.IMG_5933

I did my own drawing, and the girl on the cover is also close, but I would love to be able to hold a glass sylph, circulatory system and all, in the palm of my hand.

They are about 4-6 inches tall, and weigh 2-4 ounces.  They are female in personality and voice, but their body is flat, basic, and without curves.  They don’t wear clothes, as they have no need, and you wouldn’t want to cover up their pulsing heart that takes up the center of their chest.  That heart is a measurement of how much love they are getting.  You have to keep tabs on it at all times.

2D - Copy

Lucent Sylphs cannot recreate an entire human body with bones, flesh, other internal organs, or even our size and stature, due to being from a 1D dimension that is intangible.  Our world is a very physical one.  Sylpha is an emotional world.  To take on a physical body at all is a challenge.  Being transparent, five inches tall, and easily susceptible to changing emotions is the best they can do.

You can turn your own pictures into something that sort of resembles a Lucent Sylph. This link will show you how:

Basically, you just open up a picture in Microsoft Paint, a program found in your start menu.  Click on the “Image” tab and look for “Invert colors.”
You will want to look for a picture of yourself that is dark.  The darker the better, to create a lighter look when the picture is inverted.  If you find the right picture, you can create a somewhat glassy look – although you’ll be missing the circulatory system.  Maybe if you wrote light green lines all over yourself it would turn into red veins.  🙂

Here are some examples of pictures I have inverted.  Have fun! (And keep sharing posts on Twitter, G+, and Facebook, or following this blog, to be entered to win the glass fairy figurineLucent Sylph: A Short Story, comes out in SIX days!!)

This one, unfortunately, looks like it’s clouding over from neglect  😦

IMG_0889Unfortunately, I don’t post my face online, so you’re just going to get my feet and hands above  😛

Have fun turning yourself into glass!

Getting excited for next Saturday?  Please spread the word!  😀

I want to hear from you!
