This pieces excellent use of symmetry was stand out from the miniature preview with in my message centre. Your eyes are drawn towards the focal point. The dark edge is a particular stand out point, giving great depth of image and framing the piece in an interesting way. As with all your photo manipulations they tell a story, and within that a story you can lose yourself, within the image. The colours and tones used throughout really work with the image, personally I see great levels of depth within and a sense of good and bad, staring down as we watch on from a distance! My only negative, is this would look great as a print.
What do you think?

I'm a texture junkie, therefore I won't deny I absolutely love this piece (pretty much as the rest of your work :)) so, sorry if I look a little biased in this critique :love:

First of all I love the symmetry of it, it's like looking to twin sisters, or maybe two parts of a same being struggling inside, of course that's my interpreation and its a concept used before, but you managed to make it look new.

I also adore the choice of colors, the contrast of the black with the brightness of the red and blue creates a combination I find eye catching and impressive, colorful without being TOO colorful.

Something I really won't mind to hang on my wall ;)

This is so amazing! It looks so painterly and collage like.
This is really impressive photomanipulation.
It would be so much fun to be a butterfly. :lol:

This reminds me of Magnet (a Vocaloid song in which the characters have butterfly-themed outfits xD).
You have amazing photomanipulation skills. ^_^

A lovely mix of colour and texture. The black around the edges heightens the intensity of each colour.

Thank you for sharing it.

Butterflies and hurricanes. The usual description given to the strongest emotions the soul has to endure.
And that´s what it makes you feel when you see this: Butterflies in your stomach and a hurricane blowing through your mind. It´s too good for words :love:
MachinesBleedToo Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Eeee Muse are my favourite band. I love how you've entwined the designs together and how it fits with the sound and words of the song so well- the twirls the hurricane and the butterflies...well, you can guess the rest.
I love the composition and how it's symmetrical in appearance but the colours divide each side up nicely.
fourteenthstar Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2009
thank you :)
