its been fun creating 'aqua de vida'
so i decided to give photo manipulation another go
here is result

credits and thanks:

vinyl player - stockxpert
zipper - stockxpert
brain - [link]
light bulb - [link]
cigarette - [link]
heart - [link]
duracell battery - [link]
paintbrush - [link]
smoke brush by [link]

Enjoy

edit:
for those that think this is too random.. here is my explanation of the elements

vynil player - its the music, many people including myself listen to music while creating. music is an insane inspiration.. a simple lyric line form a song can spark an idea (bulb) that will result in a masterpiece. Ideas are generated by our brain
heart - on ring finger, Greeks believed there is a vein in the ring finger that's connected to the heart, and it represents love. thats why we now wear wedding rings on that finger, and that shows that we gave our heart to someone else. love inspires all.
zipper - people tend not to listen to advice, they give advice the middle finger. and zipper represents that concept.. take advice from everyone, it never hurts to have another view another perspective on things, in this case art.
coffee and cigarette are stimulants that help us get through creative walls, when you dont have that last piece of energy to stay up all night and work on an important project, coffee to the rescue. And when you need a break to think things over.. you grab a smoke.

Ah, that makes more sense! Sorry, I hope you didn't feel offened or anything. That wasn't the message I meant to get across! ^_^;

Really interesting now though o:

Breathtakingly done! I love the meanings behind this, all the things we do that influence our artwork. :D I agree with the above comment with the cigarette, but if he wouldnt have said anything i would never have even thought of it. And this would be a great piece of cover artwork for a progressive rock band, as someone else said.

:+fav: Great work, sir. It looks very professionally done.
