I love this picture so much as I once had a telepathic salvia experience with my best mate and part of it was this woman reaching out for help... And the planet below reminds me of the wheel which I sensed spinning around prior to seeing this image which was around 7 years ago... I also like the point you mentioned about a high peak as my friend said I merged into the sofa to form a mountain and he and some friends were trying it get to the top of me to save this girl... Its trippy to see someone has drawn this vision I had and if I was an artist like you I would have loved to of drawn this... It's amazing thank you for bringing this experience to life!

Oooooh, I love it! Especially well-placed imagery on the mountain since all the observatories and radio telescopes are on mountains. Stretching for the heavens, as it were. Very nice.

I love the symbolism and the dimensions are wonderful. It draws the viewer inward as the girl reaches out. Beautiful! :+fav:

awesome illustration, I can almost reach to grab her arm, LOL.
Handie Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
beautiful!! it's such a great picture but it also makes me feel uneasy, because I am afraid of heights! I know that sounds silly - but it makes the feeling of the picture more intense for me because I can imagine how badly she must want what she is reaching for, to put herself in that position of danger.

The flow of the image is so skillfully done. Fantastic job, man. Truly fantastic.
AllAmericanArsonist Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2008
After reading the "artist description" I found out that the original ideas of what I though of this piece weren't "correct" But that is the sign of a masterpiece. If you can evoke many different emotions from just as many different people you have done your job as an artist. Truly magnificent work.
BERKAYBERKAYBERKAY Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
i like the theme of the picture !

great- realistic- nice imagination - and really Truee !
