Stunning piece, reminds me of the work of Dave McKean.
torbjornhirsch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Me again... :) Reminds me of Dave McKean. Is he more or less the inventor of this kind of surreal collage style, or are there others that you for example might have been inspired by (regarding this particular "style" if there is such a thing)? Do you have any tips on other DA artists painting in more or less this genre? And about the picture: very good workmanship indeed!
fantasio Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
no problem:)Thanks! Indeed, McKean was a big inspiration for this work. I don´t know many who worked in this style before him, but I know a few here on dA who work in a similar direction after him: *kubicki and ~morwar had some more in my favorites when I worked in this direction, but most of them are not active here anymore. About the style I have to say that you are right about the colors and the difference between the coloring-perception of these works. Didn´t thought about that.
torbjornhirsch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just browsed these artists pages and there is indeed some likeness to McKean, especially some of morwars photomanipulations. Thanks for the tips, DA is a maze and sometimes you have browse through quite a lot to find something you like, but now and then you find some real gems!

WOW, I wish I could do and think like this piece.
I think this visual captures the spirit of the natural
elements (face, wood stump) and combines and
contrasts so well with the more linear architectural
element. The typography is just gravy. Very nice...

mariusbudu Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2003  Professional Photographer
PEOPLE ARE FUCKIN ARROGANT! We assumed this world belonged to us, so we raped and destroyed it... Unless I am totally off here, this piece beautifully depicts that fact...

I'm glad to see that artists still use their talents to convey strong messages and depict cruel realitites of life

sensational! very good one!
beyondlight Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2003   Digital Artist
great transition between architecture of nature & buildings. the red pupil (the almost glinting little circle) seems so alive. watching. observing... waiting. and... great typo!

That's freaking awesome. The colors are vivid, the composition is well-planned, and I love the different text effects (dodging, blurring). Great job.

Very impressive textures and blending. And (for me anyway) it feels just off-balance in all the right ways to encompass the message.
