Ok, this may come as a surprise, but I have something different for you now...

This is NOT the actual deviation, you need to download the file below!

It's a short (a mere 30 secs.) 2D animation sequence which I created back in 2005. The file is only 7 MB, so please check it out!

I combined hand drawing with Photoshop coloring and composed in After FX 6.5

Animation is tedious, but the results are rewarding. There is a shot that includes rotoscoping...yeah, that's lame. -.-

I plan to do another bigger animation with a Sci-Fi thematic, I already have some cool scenes in mind that I want to create. It's gonna take some time, but it's really something I want to do eventually! So keep an eye out! :)

Ah yes, the music is taken from "Versus" (jap. movie), I just had to include it! :headbang:
The scene actually had its original score, but it didn't fit so well so I exchanged it...

I uploaded the file to Deviantart. Plus, here is a link to my own webspace:

This is not a new painting, but I thought it was worth putting up.
Hopefully the title says it all - the frustrated song writer is searching for something elusive when his eye is caught by a passing vision...

الخط العربي هو فن و تصميم الكتابة في مختلف اللغات التي تستعمل الحروف العربية. تتميز الكتابة العربية بكونها متصلة مما يجعلها قابلة لاكتساب أشكال هندسية مختلفة من خلال المد والرجع والاستدارة والتزوية والتشابك والتداخل والتركيب.

و يقترن فن الخط بالزخرفة العربية (أرابيسك;) حيث يستعمل لتزيين المساجد و القصور، كما أنه يستعمل في تحلية المخطوطات و الكتب و خاصة لنسخ القرآن الكريم. و قد شهد هذا المجال إقبالا من الفنانين المسلمين بسبب نهي الشريعة عن تصوير البشر و الحيوان خاصة في ما يتصل بالأماكن المقدسة و المصاحف.

يعتمد الخط العربي جماليا على قواعد خاصة تنطلق من التناسب بين الخط والنقطة والدائرة، وتُستخدم في أدائه فنيا العناصر نفسها التي تعتمدها الفنون التشكيلية الأخرى، كالخط والكتلة، ليس بمعناها المتحرك ماديا فحسب بل وبمعناها الجمالي الذي ينتج حركة ذاتية تجعل الخط يتهادى في رونق جمالي مستقل عن مضامينه ومرتبط معها في آن واحد.

Islamic calligraphy, equally known as Arabic calligraphy, is the art of artistic handwriting, and by extension, of bookmaking. This art has most often employed the Arabic script, throughout many languages. Calligraphy is especially revered among Islamic arts since it was the primary means for the preservation of the Qur'an. The work of calligraphers was collected and appreciated. Consideration of figurative art as idolatrous led to calligraphy and abstract figures becoming the main forms of artistic expression in Islamic cultures.

Arabic, Persian and Ottoman Turkish calligraphy is associated with geometric Islamic art (the Arabesque) on the walls and ceilings of mosques as well as on the page. Contemporary artists in the Islamic world draw on the heritage of calligraphy to use calligraphic inscriptions or abstractions in their work [link]

"The Power of Om...During meditation, when we chant Om, we create within ourselves a vibration that attunes sympathy with the cosmic vibration and we start thinking universally. The momentary silence between each chant becomes palpable. Mind moves between the opposites of sound and silence until, at last, it ceases the sound. In the silence, the single thought�Om�is quenched; there is no thought. This is the state of trance, where the mind and the intellect are transcended as the individual self merges with the Infinite Self in the pious moment of realization. It is a moment when the petty worldly affairs are lost in the desire for the universal. Such is the immeasurable power of Om. Om is the one eternal syllable of which all that exists is but the development. The past, the present, and the future are all included in this one sound, and all that exists beyond the three forms of time is also implied in it".

An experiment with colours; I was told in high school never to use black paint and instead to make black out of the other colours because it would be a more 'true' black.

The blackness of Cataclysm's coat needed the kind of depth only piles of acrylic could provide. Acrylics and I have come to a kind of understanding: I don't try to hard and they won't end up looking like shite. :)
