    Idyllical Overkill - two-man Quilt by Fidgit & Dura

    Over half a year both of us worked together on this Projekt.

    Easy System, you paint single tiles of the whole, the other gets only the borders, paint his own tile fit with those borders, and then he give his own borders back to the other, and so on.
    On this website you can watch this system easily, or even take part on such a project by yourself(most quilt are for more than 2 people).
    http://tiles.ice.org/index.php?quilt_id=163

    In this case it has to mentioned, as a special treat this quilt is a tile by itself, so if you put it on your desktop "side by side" instead of streched or centred, there will be no border even on high resolution.

    Breathtaking. Words fail me completely.

    This is a great concept. I've dealt with tiling textures almost every day of my working life for the last ten years - something as beautiful as this almost makes me want to be friends with them again..!

    This is a cool concept. Things get scewed in different pieces, but thats sort of the cool part of it. I love the left side!

    Thx very much! Im glad you like it to, and its nice to here the scewed thoughts in this art-dialogue are what sometimes just make the difference in a positiv way.

    Matt, hehe, tiling textures and tiling artworks are a bit different if you think about fun, right?
    May the colors be with you.

    Woah! Color and beauty overload! "Idyllical Overkill" is a totally apt title. Looks like a scene from a fantasy paradise.

    I have to say this is a lot like "start to finish" art were you just start drawing what ever you think of then eventuly you fill the page. Just love looking at it would love to see more post like this, Great work.
