Artwork Description

It was done with acrylic/watercolor/ink. Origionally I wanted this picture to be about balance, like the yin-yang, but it mutated when I decorated it too much. It's still a sucess though.

whoah. If you follow the lines horizontally, it makes you feel a little vertigo. Awesome. So maybe it's not so much Yin Yang. It turned out more complex in my opinion. Like being caught and held transfixed by a card game.

Hey! This one is like being slapped in the face with Dali. Its very emotional. I love the reds - powerful!
Keep it up!

Wow, this is really neat. I love the illusion in the checkerboard and how you made the creatures part of it. We just got done with op-art in art class at my school and i have to say that no one did such a job as what I have just seen. Wonderful!

This is one of my favorites! I love how the creatures have no necks, I don't know why...

Love it ^^ It has this kind of desturbing effect (everything with a lot of black and white squares has that effect on me >.< like a chess-bord or whatever it's called O.o; scary..*shivers*) i love the 'bumps' in the pattorn, they make me guess what's underneath.. like a suprise attack in disguise or something like that.. Great piece ^^

Thanks. I find when you use simple colour scheems, it's easier to create a strong atmosphere.
