Black Lotus by Petrichora Black Lotus by Petrichora
A Black Lotus from Magic: The Gathering, mostly based on the new art by Chris Rahn: [link]

Cut and molded leather, painted black and silvery black with acrylics, then lit with a miniature LED.

The camera sees the light from the LED differently than my eyes do, mostly in terms of how much purple and blue light is reflected inside the petals; it's much less glaring in real life, but still very magical-looking. :)

Tutorial on how to make these here: [link]

Beautiful! Apparently photgraphing LEDs is tricky, but I recall this guide [link] being helpful.

Ooo, neat! I don't know how much of that I can actually apply with my phone camera, which is the only one I have right now, but when I get a real camera I'll definitely play with the settings and try to get a better picture of this.
