Mesmerizing Serpent

In various ancient mythologies serpents are symbols of wisdom and miraculous powers, in some cultures they are even adored as deities. Shedding their skins, serpents appear to be reincarnating from themselves, making them often being associated with immortality. While they fixate on prey with unblinking eyes they appear as charmers, hypnotizing their prey into submission.

Feasibility for on-line application

The stylings in our color inspirations are intended to demonstrate future effect color directions and possibilities. Although we have tried to make the formulations as realistic as possible, we cannot guarantee their full feasibility for on-line application. A certain degree of modification and fine tuning will probably be necessary.
