I originally started this as an entry for a contest, but the idea turned out to be a little too ambitious, so I missed the deadline.

The concept was 'the future', and I wanted to depict a future with incredible amounts of information available to absorb instantaneously.

I used stock by the excellent :iconpoorsouls-stock:

I would like to use this GIF image in an online course--as an introduction to a health policy news update discussion.  I will include an image credit: Jason Casteel and include a link to this site for the references.  I love the image, as it truly depicts what many of us are feeling with so much information swirling around our heads--now more than ever!

If you don't mind, I would like to use this in an upcoming academic presentation on information overload. Of course, I would credit you as the source if you are ok with my use of the animated image.

I've inserted the picture on my slide and just below of it, I've written "Information Overload by SykotikScarecrow". I've also hyperlinked the text and when clicked, it leads here. The presentation went well, however I was a little nervous and the professor said that I needed to more alive :|... Anyway, thank you!

It's for a course related with this, with how to search things on internet among incredible amounts of information. If you want me to delete it, let me know, write a comment please!

sorry, i haven't been on dA for a long time (specifically....two years :faint: ) but this is awesome!

the style of this picture is unlike anything i've ever seen from you before. i LOVE the animation. and i LOVE the barcode-like textures floating around the girl's face.

EXCELLENT work as usual! had you made the deadline on this, i'm sure you would have won =)

WOW this is just such an awesome piece. It was such a waste you missed the deadline! Nonetheless, I think finishing such an ambitious concept and work proved to be relieving and boosting! :clap:

I love her hair so much. :heart: And the colors are amazing. :D Are the images just images or did you render them in some way?

Thanks! I wanted to finish it they way I had in mind, rather than rush something to meet the deadline. Most of them are just images, some of them I did render.. they were from a few of my previous pieces.
