Earth shattering and Dust Cloud

Earth Shattering
Dust Cloud


These two images were the result of just playing around with various drawings. Any relevance to recent events in Japan is purely fortuitous - or decidedly uncanny - as they were made before the earthquake. You might notice, though, that in the interests of green issues, characters have been recycled.

Wow Dave, stunning. The first has a Paleolithic feel, but also hints of Hiroshima.
The beauty of the colours in the second gives it a less cataclysmic air, but then the new figure is so ominous!
Liked them, and the complexity of response, very much.

As you say rather eerie - they also remind me of rock paintings. Superb.

Each one tells a dozen stories.

I have no artistic talent but do have fun with the photo art stuff. These are haunting.

Helen said...

Surreal, haunting (as Tabor commented) ... I love the things you do.

These images remind me of Aboriginal cave paintings in outback Australia :-).

Thanks for those observations. I must say, I'm seeing a lot of stuff that I don't remember putting there! Since the events in Japan, I've tended to see connections with them.

Isabel
Hi and good to have your visit. Rock paintings? Yup! Hadn't thought of those, but I see them now. Thanks.

Carl
Thanks. I've invested in new software. Updated software, really. I was just playing to find out what I could do with it.

Tabor
I'm using the photo approach more and more to circummvent the problem of shaky hands.

Helen
Lovely to have your remarks. thanks so much.

Windsmoke
Again, I see the echoes. Thanks for pointing them out.

What software do you use?

they're quite eerie, and I'm always in favour of recycling characters!

Thanks to you All.
As you may have read, I am having trouble getting Blogger to let me in to the comments and even more trouble leaving replies. so please accept this general thank you until I can get things sorted.

A warm welcome, though, to totamai
