a)i love intellectual, charged, vibrant, DAMNawesome collages
b)all the elements in this one are very interesting
c)i loove the way you painted the figure and then outlined it
d)i loved the watergun and the bubbles and the zillion connotations
e)i generally really liked the paint application and the playfullness with the medium
i think you get my point!
the composition is excelent, there are several levels of depth, the colors are very harmonious and pleasing to the eye. the concept is clear, and comes across perfectly, it leaves alot of feel and think for the viewer. some of the light sorces look odd on the bubbles, but it's all so well stylized, and fitting together, that it's hardly a complaint. it's a wonderful piece and all your arts rahter fanstastic. I love it. (will you look at my stuff?)
I actually have little to no digital artwork skills... I'm quite a philistine in that department. I think that's what pushes me to paint for hours what someone else would just collage together in 15 minutes on photoshop.
You're words are so kind.. it's staggering. The comparisons you make are both insightful and so flattering they make me blush!
Just a little bit surreal? It's certainly a very interesting piece of work - any particular reason you use the images you have? I like the slightly grainy rendering effect you've used; I think it works very well
The first thing that grabs me is the variation in shapes and textures. You have these glassy bubbles, grainy shirt, winkled shorts, soft rabbits, and fluid feeling background with the greens. Going along with that theme I’d like to see a greater metallic feel on the gun, strands in the hair, and perhaps more fuzz to the rabbits. The subject matter is very original and amusing. You have nice movement upwards from the rabbits to the child up through the bubbles.

I find that I do my best observational figure drawings on grey boxboard with charcoal and chalk.
I've been thinking about 3d glasses a lot lately, because i've started planning my thesis for next year, and i might want to do a series of 3d comics sold with paper stereo glasses.
I'm enjoying your visualization of this, especially the multicoloured bubblefilm and the depiction of glass helmets on the rabits.
You've captured the posture perfectly.
But you already know all this.
I often wonder what goes on in those vaccuous child-brains when they emulate adult actions. Or do anything at all, for that matter. Strange simple animal child-minds... i find them unsettling.
i don't quite remember what i was thinking when i played with toy guns.
Sterling offering, as is expected.
