Like so many shadows by SilentBeforeTheStorm Like so many shadows by SilentBeforeTheStorm
Well, that was fun. It's always nice to start drawing without any ideas at all. The subconscious is an interesting place.

There's a lot more detail in this one that I normally put in my work... I spent a day on the basic painting, and two days going back adding details and doing touch-up work.

Full view is a must :nod:

Hope you like it :)

There is a definate Dali feel to this.. and not just because of the expression of the face.

I love how the trees in the background lead your eye into the picture.. and then the path is just impossible to follow with the eye.

I like this a lot, and I have featured this in my journal.

Great job on the eyes. The movement in it is great as well. I would definitely consider this painting as one of your best.......in my opinion.

I love this one, lots of humor in it as well as other stuff. Your right, it's just fun to dig into the subconscious mind. I just have a hard time placing it on paper, when I want to.

I think the trick is not trying to place it on the paper... just start drawing/sketching without really paying attention to what you're doing. This piece started out as something completely different, and just kept morphing into something new...

Woah, cool! Is that a Dali head I see? =P ( a very Dali-esque picture by the way)


... and I was going to tell you how unique and original and interesting it was, but it seems some other people have already done that for me :)

wow, that is amazing on so many levels I cant even begin... but I will try... very interesting Idea about letting people freely walk around your mind. I can relate to that lately. I also think the mustache is very interestingly shaped, and the color scheme works perfectly for me... Great piece... +Fav.
