One cannot help but to be capticated by this image. May Fear be a gateway to ~ratpat13's gallery of surreal delight.

A detailed version of the left diptych image. Originally based on the idea of Terror and Joy, I took some liberties with the theme to create a surreal and slightly autobiographical image.
The left image is an expression of terror or fear and the possibility to grow from that as it merges with the right diptych image.
But don't take my word for it, i may have said to much.

Made in Photoshop CS the original print version is 12"x15" for a combined print size of 12"x15"

Thank you to the resurgere team for providing three of the integrated textures and smoke:
All other images and textures were photographed and scanned by me.

The only thing you have to fear is fear itself...and spiders. Fuck spiders.

This reminds me of Dave McKean who did the art on the covers of The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. I liked those covers, and I like this. Very well done.

Beautiful beautiful peace. It has greatly inspired the work i am doing at the moment, i will put a reference to it in my work :)
can I use this for a project for my digital imaging class? I will not distribute this and I won't claim it as my own, I am just using it for a Poster.
