(Do I have to mature content-mark it? There are some naked people but....gosh. Like, if I have a nude dog in it, do I have to mature-content-mark it? The twistedness in enormous)

I had to zoom into this piece to see see all the detail in there, theres so much. i'm loving the dark background because it really brings everything out with the contrasts. What I find particularly interesting about this piece is the way you've shaded it in, like the cross hatching in the background, the swirling marks within the rocks at the top and in the face. it helps to emphasise the motion created by the figures and so on. i also like that you've outlined everything in black pen. the overall piece comes together really well but each element stands out uniquely on it's own, very nicely done :)

LOVE the figures floating in the starry sky... Also really like the curved lines, seaweed-like effect with the squiggly lines, and the crosshatched background. I think the crosshatching sets off the smooth, blended pieces better than if it were all smooth, so nice contrast on that. The higher up of the two bottom white shapes reminds me of a baby seal which is cool and I think the face in the the shape connected to the seaweed is really neat- the side of its head is kind of like a fingerprint or spiral. Overall, really interesting piece. The tone of it is great- it just gives you the feeling of dreaming or of floating in space, very laid-back, mellow, and relaxed. It makes me think of the point where you're right between conciousnees and unconciousness, just before you fall asleep...

Thank you Alissa! Fun to read what you see, some of it I didn't at all intend, which makes it even more fun. Interesting, I was near that state actually. When I draw, I always draw in bed before falling asleep, in fact. :D I'm more inspired and nonlogical and less self-critical then, good for this type of art I suppose.

It's very offbeat and unique looking. Nice design and contrasts. Interesting form and structure.
