Full view recommended! The detail isn't shown well in the preview pic/smaller version.


An artist created this. I created this. It speaks with its own language. A language of colors. Behind this work lies my failures, yet I refused to give up until it shone with my strengths and weaknesses, as apparent or invisible as they may seem. I created this to be symbolic and unique. Fractals rely on other fractals. Patterns hide within patterns. They work together. This is not a single fractal, it is many. Nature never relies on one single pattern for every creation. It has the harmony of many. I attempted to recreate just a fraction of my inspiration's flawless work.

Every artist relies on human senses to convey emotions through their talent, ingenuity, and equipment. Speaking visually relies on designing a stunning array of colors, shapes, and textures which must be craftily spun into a piece others can admire and appreciate. The style of creating must begin with a type of art, chosen between talent area and preferences. Yet, myriads of mediums exist to express every way to communicate without words. Major rifts in this area occur in choosing to be an artist of a certain sense, or of a type. The word “Artist” sparks thoughts of visual art, as is the most traditional path. This is also the path of my artistic ability.

Choosing a path towards visual mediums leans towards traditional art and recently a new dawn of digital art has emerged as technology has blossomed. This hardware is built for numerous sectors, and gives each a helping hand each year. Movies are getting more digitally edited, gamers are getting better graphics straight from their desktops, and objects can be printed from 3D models. Paints, pencils, chalks, canvas and paper are still a very valid form of visual art, yet we are giving way to a wave of digital artists. This new breed is armed with programs, tablets, math, and a more convenient way to share and communicate each and every piece through the Internet. I am amongst those in this revolutionary group. Art is shifting to meet the modern age, and I follow suit using my talents. I have chosen this path, for I am an “Artist”. I speak visual, I design digital.

At least 4 hours were put into this. Probably more like 6.

Full View Please.

I was inspired to revision my submission, meaning that I had a re-visioning of it. Death . . . That is all . . . The apocalypse simply means Death to life.

"I heard a fly buzz when I died;
The stillness round my form
Was like the stillness in the air
Between the heaves of storm.

The eyes beside had wrung them dry,
And breaths were gathering sure
For that last onset, when the king
Be witnessed in his power.

I willed my keepsakes, signed away
What portion of me I
Could make assignable,-and then
There interposed a fly,

With blue, uncertain, stumbling buzz,
Between the light and me;
And then the windows failed, and then
I could not see to see."

-Dying by Emily Dickinson

deviantART Logo Proposal

So here it is. Everything and anything I have to say about the design is in the explanation above. The bottom line:

Before starting any sketching, Ryan Ford's criteria were thoroughly read twice. I agreed with all the concepts and ideas put forth by the criteria; the job at hand was to put them into use in a new way. The research was done, the ideas formed, the sketches sketched. After hours of drafting, the end result is one that is bold, legible, catchy, and simply attractive. Transcending the various details and elements of the logo is its overall personality, the character and feel that is generated as a whole. The first impression of such a logo needs to be professional, confident, and mature. Which is exactly what this logo is designed to be.

Enjoy, any input is greatly appreciated.

A team of explorers from Aome set down upon the moon of Senn-Vyvehrr to search through the ancient ruins there. These huge organic structures, which date back to the early days of the Atini Conflict, served as factories within which hundreds of fighting machines were constructed under the orders of 'Rau-Dhossi', the first robot General to lead against the Mesranic Oppression.

Made with Vue and Photoshop.

This was going to be used for an older Lum pack, but never got past the basic render stage. So I decided to work on it for the 'Beyond the Frontier: Lost Lands' contest.

Hope you like it. :)

I take a deep zip of air
It tastes the same, only colder
My soul is standing in line
Waiting for the white curtain to rise

The one before me seems to be in a hurry
Like time has some sort of a meaning here
Well, I guess habits are hard to break
Even when everything is different

I guess I have all the time in the world
This one and the next
I just wonder what it will be like
At the end of the line, for me.


I'm very happy about this contest.
Surreal photography is my greatest passion.
The use of shadows, reflections, Infra Red, panning techniques...
The mind can go free in this world, to portray an alternative one.

This shot was taken at 3:00AM at the old city of Jerusalem, on the night of Yom Kipur.
The atmosphere that night, walking the streets was surreal, so easily enough, this is what I was photographing.
What you see is actually people climbing the stairs to a roof top, but while they were walking I was panning them, and gave to strokes of soft flash to get small freeze in the frame, and allow the 'ghost' like figures.

I love this shot, and I hope you will like it too.
