STIMULUS by Paula-Rosa STIMULUS by Paula-Rosa
This is not an eye and the respective optical nerve having a bath in a river. That is not even a river... nor a bridge.
That is us on the stage.

Finally finished! I started this drawing in November. I had to make a pause, as many of you probably know. I like it. Although, it had the typical taste of the "interrupted pieces". Not enough sodium chloride.

Technical details:
Freehand, made with a Wacom Volito tablet in Photoshop 6.0.

Hope you like it!
:heart:
Thank you!

Breathtaking piece. I love the details and design. Exquisite monochrome. Great looking eye. The mood and atmosphere are excellent. Superb contrast and tones. The reflection is fantastic. Brilliant visual touch with the eye lashes.

I don't like the way he's looking at me. Heeheehee!

Honestly. I like the feel of this. Everything so natural, everything flowing together, as if it were how it should be.

wicked :D I like how you don't notice the eyelashes in the background, and then you do and you're all like "whoooa, meaningful". :D

Ah! Us on the stage!!! Yep. I picked that straight away. Never looked like an eye to me. Never thought you stole my Sydney Harbour Bridge. . . (Sorry for joking. . . Yes - I see what you mean. . . I like the symbolism.)

:jawdrop: So cool! While the idea of an eyeball getting up and walking away is really creepy, at the same time I just love the image. Superbly drawn. Surreal art at its best.

Initial impression is something like "yeah that's cool" and then you keep looking at it and it all becomes clear, the eye/bridge and the arms and hands... Impressive, so imaginitive...

Very surreal and unsettling (in a good way). It's so smooth, it almost has the appearance of being rendered in a 3D modelling program. It really grabbed my attention. Excellent concept/artwork.
