I started this image almost 8 months ago and have been working on it off and on since. I've always been intrigued as to how blind people percieve colour and how they might imagine it, for them im guessing its more about form and sensation i guess i was inspired by these thoughts. the image is more about the feeling of colours.

for some full resolution closeups click the links below:)

also i dont feel there is excessive nudity so dont wish to hide the thumbnail due to "mature content"

That's amazing. I loved the idea of how blind people might see colour, or perhaps sense it!
I heard about a bloke who became blind after an accident and he looked forward to dreaming because then he knew he would see colours again.
