Thanks sve ... I really appreciate the post. I wish I had half the capability of conversation as you do... heh. You really are too kind.... thank you.
Dixon and Manley did an awesome job at putting me to shame (as I knew they would). I Keep going back over and over all the images, taking another look at artists websites or sketchbooks. The amount of quality work is amazing. I have so much respect for the members here at CA and dedicating so much time for these contest.
cheers for the comments sve,missed them the first time because i was in a rush.Its wierd reading your comments,how someone can come up with all that info on an image that to me at the time was just a random image that came to mind,heh churs,thx robyn for your comment aswell
oh,and nicolas you never cease to amaze me,my fave entry out of the lot.
It is weird for me to read your thoughts, Rusty, because I always start from idea that nothing is random in art. All details have some reasons why they are included in the image. I even think that where you put dots and lines have some bases if an artist knows what he wants.
Look, I thought that maybe colors in m@'s image were random, and no, they were put there on pupose, were well thought out.
If nothing is random, then there is a certain idea in the image, I need to look carefully.
sve, thank you very much for the crits and compliments; I'm glad you enjoyed the piece. I had to put it away for almost a week before I could look at it again after submitting! Anyway, you are right about the escaping souls overpowering the bad guy's torso. Guess I got carried away in that area a bit. Good insight, and thanks again.
