This is by far my favorite of yours! The detail is absolutely mind blowing. If you look at this while listening to some Pink Floyd it'll rock your world;)

i do love me some pink floyd. i'm trying to remember what i was listening to most when i made this. i'm pretty that would be the Disco Biscuits, namely "Magellan" and "Above the Waves"

here's a link to some of their live shows that have both if you wanted to give a listen [link]

How can you ever visualize something like this? Where do you begin? I'm just in such awe!

:iconglowing-fool:
glowing-fool Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009
thank you. as with most of my work, it started with a doodle of a tree. then the octopus wrapping around the tree. everything else is there to fit a composition no really part of the initial idea. but then again there wasn't much of an original idea since it was started as a doodle and then graduated to one of my favorite pieces. this is why i now do all my doodling on the same paper i ink if possible.

I really need to get better at doodling. I feel like as an artist I started a bit backwards. I was never really a doodler but I always worked on full ideas that were quite planned out. I want to work on loosening up things.

Of course its beautiful, but if you want my personal reaction:

I'm finding your style to be too controlled and though its not forced, there's all this fluid chaos thats stuck inside these black lines and it holds you back.

glowing-fool Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009
thank you so much for an insightful critique. to preface this, im fairly colorblind and used to paint alot more but found that i would get much more into the color mixing than the subject matter (also mades tons of mistakes with colors that didnt work when i was painting realism). all the black lines are an exercise in control for someone who didnt have it for awhile. every section of those carefully inked pages represents basically an elaborate grid and has a specific color matricies made up for it to carefully organize what colors will be showing against what in the f,m, and bground. it's also a reluctant battle i fight with the medium i prefer (prismacolor markers). the black lines prevent bleeding so i can put absurd colors next to each other withouyt dealing with their offspring. i also feel that they dont look good in large forms but i have recently taken to treating them more like layerable paints so i might rescind that theory. i would really like your opinion of this piece i am about to submit because i feel like im trying to increase the level of intricacey in my line work while reducing the amount of space it takes up on the page. give me say...10 min??

Well that's very insightful into your practice and its very interesting much like mine.
I was just suggesting you experiment :P

That's all I've been doing at college for the last month, we're forced to do things we cant or haven't done before. So it's opening us up to all these possibilities.

How colour blind are you? What colours cant you see?
And i didn't say you should attempt realism, i was thinking maybe experimenting with different surfaces. Watercolours don't have to be applied to watercolour paper you know? You can get some very fluid techniques when you try different papers.

sorry if that came across as anything less than personal expository. i wasnt saying i didnt want to experiment, just letting you know that all the control see is perhaps me rebounding too far into order. for awhile in my mid colege years i was just overwhelmed with all the possibilities staring back at me on a canvas or piece of paper. i was turning out things that had no drive and were hit or miss aethetically because of it. i think i can definitely combine some free experimentation with what ive taught myself in the last 2 years since graduating college. as far as the colorblind thing goes, i beleive most people (namely males)are in the same boat as me with it- they can see hues per se but theres a connection in my brain on permanent lunch break when it comes to matching it with a name. red/green/brown= trouble as does the purple/blue shenanigans. most of the time it doesnt matter because it makes me more inclinced to match based on tone and warmth/coolness. and it really only affects none "pure" colors.
i think i will try some new things with mixed media again at your behest though and see what we come up with. again thank you for taking the time to provide an insightful evaluation. i look foward to more of your pieces as well.
