Hope its not too dark on your screen. I wanted to do something more on the graphic side and play with color intensity.

It's a strange coincidence that you've conceptualized that 'light' is emmiting from the 'eye' in the darkness.

The "Eye of Horus" and Judaism's "Genesis" have a similar concept. And "New Age" often likes to believe that all of life is but a 'thought'.

And Scientists have proven that all that we see, is 'technically' an illusion of our own mind.

But putting philosophy aside, this artwork is really good.

You should totally be a graphic designer.

Thats interesting, yup I was trying to convey a similar thought.

Thanks, Jak. I'm working on it. If you want to be an artist with out a degree you have to 1) Be a really good artist and 2) Have alot of work. Also great social skills never hurt, but I'm going to play it to my strengths for now :P

The way you see.... what?! The world? Yourself?


beastkid7 responds:

I close my eyes to feel something other than my existence. In the darkness I can see more than reality. The text on the image was taken from one of my poems, and with this image takes on a whole different meaning.
