PhD Thesis cover by Morgainelefee
PhD Thesis cover
This work has been commissioned by the latest PhD student in our group, who is going to defend her thesis soon.
She chose the Mad Hatter theme from Alice in Wonderland, and required to be portrayed as the Mad Matter himself.
Her work was about the impact of endogenous neurosteroids on craving intake of palatable food, so she was feeding rats with chocolate cookies after they eventually got a shot of "Allo" (allopregnanolone), which is a compound produced in the brain during stress, premenstrual period or during pregnancy.
The nice table and dresses symbolizes the fact that her animals were treated well and got all the comforts, besides the cookies :)
The "trees" behind the group are neurons, firing when Allo is acting in the brain.
The dark mood, but with a lighter background symbolizes the quest for knowledge.
The dark space at the bottom is intended to host the thesis title, university's seal and author's name.
To paint the nearest bushes a brush made from pictures of neurons was used.
Val and Mel (Versus Contest) by Morgainelefee
Val and Mel (Versus Contest)
Done for the Versus Contest… by the awesome Eledhwen :iconeledhwen-stock: and using their stock pics:……

This is my take of a scene in the books about Princess Val and Melisandre, (but I do't want to spoiler too much :) ) and also my take of the "versus" theme since I cannot imagine two worlds and two characters more different than Val and Melisandre. (I hope it'll fit the contest anyway, even though I don't want to win and it was just a good excuse for me to paint something of ASoIaF not using the usual actor's faces).

I also wanted to go away from my usual realistic style and have something more painterly with brush strokes and such.
To each one of you, for all the wonderful birthday wishes!
You are the kindest and sweetest watchers here at DeviantArt!

I'm on fire! :happybounce: Heart 



Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I'm Italian, living in Northern Sweden, with a lifelong passion for Painting, Drawing and Arts.
I do not have a formal education in Fine Arts, because my professional life is about Organic Chemistry from college to PhD, so I enjoy my free time doing illustrations, when my two small children do allow me :).
While previously doodling mostly traditional, I was introduced to Digital Art at the end of 2009 and nowadays is almost my only medium​. I paint mostly in Photoshop. I use references taken while walking in the Nordic Forests that surround my place.

​Because of my background about Natural Sciences​ I love to create creatures and environments inspired by plants and animals.

I warmly welcome everybody visiting this page, and all of you who were so kind by writing a comment, watching me or faving one of my paintings .
It means a lot to me and I'm very grateful to you, even if my scarce free time do not allow me to answer each one.:heart:

Hello, Rick here from ForestRefuge!
We recently posted a questionnaire to get to know us members of ForestRefuge all better.
I fear that it did go under in your watch inbox.

Can you please take a look and leave your answer? :)

Hello~ Is this your art? (Yes, obviously.. TuT)…

The website is using your art for their business. They claimed that they sell the fairy ghosts or something like that -_-".....
Morgainelefee Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much for telling me!
yes, it is my painting and of course they haven't got permission to sell my stuff.
I must find out what to do to stop them from Europe, it looks like it's a Thai site.

Sorry I didn't reply immediately, I was very busy with my proposal exam.. (and it's 2 months now.... so sorry...)
Did you find a way? I'm not so familiar with such situation so I also don't know what to do T-T
