    Do you...

    As artist you are able to see through objects and find more than the average person sees. With this I would like to know if any of you, this is going to sound crazy, see the people in the sky? More importantly, do you see the eyes watching you from the clouds? The faces smiling at you? Sometimes it is one face taking up the whole sky and there are times there are many looking down. Anyone else? :o)

    I see everything almost everywhere.

    I saw a rockhopper penguin samurai in a wooden door once. I saw Orthrus in my room's ceiling, writhing skeletons on the floor, a disfigured woman in the walls...

    ...yeah.

    When I skimmed this from the rss feed I thought... "Cool, a thread about an artist's eye and how to strengthen it."

    I must say I am both disappointed and elated once I actually read this post.

    You are bananas... but entertainingly so... keep it up!

    One time in life drawing class I wanted to see behind the model sort of, to see the movement of the spine behind the stomach and ribcage. I looked at the angle of the torso and pelvis along with the center line in the front and after I really concentrated I was able to "see" the spine and his back. After everyone stopped screaming though I realized that the model suddenly had a huge hole in his front, exposing his spine and the various back muscles of the torso.

    They didn't ask me back

    Sure, last time was about 10 years ago. Luckily the traffic avoided me and I vowed never to drink rum again.

    Based on your imagination I suppose, it's interesting what some people see and what other's don't.
    Sometimes I'm really unobservant and miss the blantently obvious and then see great detail in images that others just fail to see.

    It's great for inspiration, thanks for reminding me.

    yes, but can you see the fnords?...
    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    Once I destroyed an imaginary friend of mine by posing the exact same question.

    As it turns out asking something imaginary to imagine something results in I^2 (or imaginary squared). The imaginary friend then wonders whether this new imaginary thing can also imagine it in return, resulting in I^3. This winds up becoming an imaginary infinite loop, but this is not why the imaginary friend self-destructs. Because there is no limit to x in I^x, x becomes an imaginary number, and posing an imaginary number to an imaginary being prompts it to try and calculate the number, just like real beings can calculate real numbers. The net result is an imaginary blue screen followed swiftly by a Deathstar-esque self-destruction.

    Are we being honest here? Then.. sometimes I think my portable air conditioner which looks a lot like R2D2... I feel like it watches me. And it doesn't like me.

    I hate it.

    When I was a child, I saw monsters and creature designs in the shapes of clouds and trees literally all the time. When my mom and I drove around town I would be sure to keep an eye out for certain trees, since I'd seen them before and knew they had cool monster designs in them. I had several favorite trees on my way too and from school, for example.

    Nowadays I typically see clouds as clouds and trees as trees. I don't know why the way I see these objects has changed; some quirk in my psychology that changed as I transitioned from childhood to adulthood, I guess. I actually somewhat miss seeing my monstrous friends wherever I go.

    So, good on you for keeping that aspect of your visual imagination alive, OP. You should be glad that you have a more interesting way of seeing the world than most of the smartasses that have responded to this thread.

    I still faces in objects - curtain, glasses etc and I like the way they morph backwards and forwards into other faces.

    I'm usually naked - maybe this brings them out.

    I do too, it's really fun to see stuff like that...and sometimes a little scary.

    I'm usually naked - maybe this brings them out.
    Wouldn't that mean that everything man-made and made from nature is either a horny male or bisexual?

    lot's of naked chicks=enigmatic faces being seen. *I really have to stay out of the lounge...this place is a time pit.*

    Oh no, this reminds me of the moon turning into Pennywise's face in that movie.
