This was a random abstract I did, which really created a unique style for me at the time (check out my other photos if you want to see what I mean) and has been pretty influential in a lot of my other works. I never really understood what I was doing when I started, I just created a bunch of wires and at one point I was left with a blank space that looked like an eye, so I drew what I saw.

Love It

I love the way you make your art so that you can stare at any of your work and not fully get the whole picture. I can't even see the full picture of most of your art. I'm guessing that's the whole point: to keep it at a very dark seeming abstract angle. Random enough too make sense, i guess. Anyway, great stuff. They all are.

or enough detail to hide the errors :P
either way I think its best to have so much content that people want to look at it longer to see the things inside it. Not so much with this one though because it's all patterns

I like this one.

Your abstract style appears to be strong as well. It's hectic in patches, but has a great flow over all. Your eyes are guided towrds the eye, of course, but you then reverse back to the dark branches that branch to the left. This is a very balanced piece, despite a lack of symmetry. Good job on that. About the dark branches - i lke them most in this; they remind me of those tribal doodles i did in my planner when i got bored one day. Oh, and this is a huge picture. Huge.

Great job and another good day to you 5/5.

hey someone commented on this! I think most people were put off by its oddness. the thing I like about this one over all the others is the forced perspective. I agree that it flows really well, and unlike the tree or the city, the pipe (vein etc...) coming out of the foreground draws the audience in a lot more effectively than the others. Its weird though because the eye is looking the other way..

thanks for the criticism, comments, and all that, btw if I were to make it huge you might end up seeing all the errors... !
