i'm not sure about the execution of the arms/hands. everything else is just raw talent. great job, really... off to your gallery now.

this is a realy solid peice here. the color in it is beautiful. the circicular tips of the trees are great as well. i dont know that i would have thrown the eye and the arms into the trunk of the tree, but its not too distracting. a favorite either way. great work.

Really beautiful, really powerful picture. The colors are subtle but it carries a lot of emotion with it, the whole picture is amazing. The three-dimensionality mixed with the background adds a lot to the picture as well :) (Smile)

I was really caught by the colour and composition of this piece.
I'd rather you left out the hands, coz now it's kinda ambiguous.. not exactly abstract but not suggesting anything else definite either.
yeah, just that, otherwise brillant!

:) (Smile)
akhrod Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2003
don't like the hands.
the rest is incredible!!! i love the upper part, that with the yellow spheres and that wonderful greenish ligh blue.

You commented on my work (Much appreciated, thank you) so I thought i'd stop by your gallery, this piece struck me the most. There's something about surrealism that attracts me. You're is one of a kind, i've never seen one like it. And the orbs add a great equal balance to the image. wonderful. ~~ +faves

Would like to see this one finished !!Wonderful so far!
dysk-tonic Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2002
i really like this. it's so disconcerting to look at it after awhile, to see the eye bleeding all over itself. it looks like it's been shot... i know it probably makes no difference since so many people have already done it, but i still want to add to my favourites, so i can remember to look at it longer...
serp Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2002
i love this piece. and i dont know how to comment on this one. it's deeply expressive, that's for sure. it stirs me in a way that is vicious, and sad, and lonely, and fearing. well done Thumbs Up
ni9elives Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2002
wow. amazing. this brings up a popular question: is suffering necessary to create powerful, expressive arts of work? or can we get enough inspiration from happiness without turning it into a cheesy rainbow?
