Ballad of Big Nothing by jasinski Ballad of Big Nothing by jasinski
#8 in the series of Headphones. Deals with listening to music and stuff. Read the others to get what I am after here. Anyway its just my thoughts on how we have our own little worlds, if you like music I guess.

I love this series. His expression is so expressive without being too over-the-top, and the backround calming in a hectic way. Great job!

Ballad of Big Nothing isn't that bad of a song, either. Elliott Smith was a great artist.

For some reason this reminds me of a younger Kevin Spacey. Very cool
phantomofnyc Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2003
his face seems intense but not carrying what is going on, just seems "into" the music. like in a world as you've said. very cool colors and design. the perspective idea is just fantastic. all around an A+ instant favorite. love it. :peace: take it easy, thanks for sharing.

This whole series is incredible, but this one is my personal favorite..

jrice Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2002
I love the face in this one. ...Don't particularly dig the image itself, but I guess that's part of the message of the series: to each their own (world).

But I think you could crop this obnoxiously tight on his face and have a really, deep, interesting painting.

Along with Call of the Space Siren, this is the best of the series. I absolutely love this one.
selforbit Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2002

Wow, what a magnificent piece. Thanks for being born.

Just thought I would give a little piece of my world to you, seeings how you get that a lot, what's one more right. I defintely can relate to this one, just how the whole world seems to be oblivious to you at that time when your favorite song comes on, and how the whole world seems to think you are in a wonderous stupor as they will never understand how the lyrics can affect you so greatly.
That is my little world at least ;) (Wink)
dygel Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2002
This is, by far, my favorite of the series. Most probably because it's the one I best relate to. Sometimes, you just have to tune into your own world while the rockets and the bombs explode behind you.

i love how you paint characters... how the background becomes a part of a person

I love this entire series, excellent work.
ortchel Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2002
Elliot Smith. How we love thee.
pitufina Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2002
i love the contrast between the bored tired 'lazy' look on his face and the rockets blasting off.....
the whole series is awesome. you've matched the backgrounds with the person well, who is the basis of this one?

yes. another lovely one in this serie! I saw this one on the photo of your room, I really liked it then, and I still like it! Nod very beautiful!
derektion Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2002   Interface Designer
What makes this one neat is the fact that he's wearing headphones and has a very mellow look amidst all of the rockets. Kinda like he's the zen master, chillin' with music. The only nitpicking I can do is that his arms look pretty jagged, as compared to the smoothness of the rest of his body. Still, as always, great work. :-) (Smile)

this one would be cool to hang in a studio or something ...

sweet deal.
brokenbeat Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2002
are you implying that not everyone likes music?!?!?!?
You're an amazing painter both in style and originality, keep it up.
defyjane Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2002  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Cool as always! Wow...I really like this peice because of the expression of his face and the rockets in the background. In all of your works in this collection you have something in the background that suggests what kind of music the subject is listening to. I really think its quite creative, and a very cool way to portay sound in picture. :) (Smile)
databoss Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2002
I like the expression on his face. The hair and the rockets are really cool too.
misterwight Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2002   Photographer
Really the only word that I can use to talk about this piece is "smooth". ... it embodies the very notion. You should submit this or another in the series to the fine folks at [link]. They'd love this.

I don't know why, but it kinda reminds of Sovet....the colors bring me that feeling :P (Razz) (Red Alert 2?) :P (Razz) anyway what's the meaning of the rockets?
