This is a rather dated piece (over a year old), so be sure and check out my newer stuff, too!

Of course, I'm probably misinterpreting this, given the title. But here's what I thought when I saw this:

We never really see what's going in inside the minds of animals. We just look at the exterior, a cute pose, craning their necks toward the sky, or lying on their backs with their feet in the air...we may even invent a reason for their actions. But we don't know for sure.

They could be contemplating things we've never even thought to consider, important things. They could be staring at something beautiful we can't see because it's not real or maybe it's just outside the grasp of our perspective.

For that matter, we never even know what the people around us are thinking. From the stranger walking down the street to the lover we hold tight and whisper to, despite our best guesses we never know for sure what they're thinking.

How often have we missed something majestic, something magical or something mysterious because it was outside our perspective? Because we weren't looking at it the right way?

But there is a beauty in that thought as well. When the animals or fellow humans look at us, they never really see what we see. What have they missed because they don't share our perspective?

This, sir, is what you've made me think about with your art.

Nice composition

But could have done with more contrast in saturation and depth. Good regardless.

Amaruuk responds:

Yeah, back when I did this I had no sense of what gave things depth and was pretty timid with shading.


I love the presence of this piece, it's beautiful.

I especially love the area which the event is taking place, and the color palette.

The mystery of this piece, it's like an event of a sole being, no one will believe him/her, but it was so awe inspiring to him/her, that they wanted to see it again, not for the sake of others, but for his own doubt that he/she actually saw this beauty.

Happy composing! ~ Wynn
