Sublime inspirations,his work express the love of the creative source!

Thank you very much! I'm so pleased you derive inspiration from my work.
This is amazing, even more so because it's traditional art!!! :OOOOO

Thank you! There's a lot of good computer art but it's always sort of flat-looking to me. 
Besides, to me a painting isn't truly a painting unless it's painted with actual messy paint on a canvas or other surface.
I think people have a certain empathy to it, as well.
Computer art can be amazing but traditional art will always have a special place in my heart XD Afterall I spend all day in front of a computer, being a computer science student, so drawing on paper is relaxing :p Anyway you gained a watcher ^^

Computer art is good when there's a good idea behind it, but people have a certain empathy for hand-created artwork.
Thank you for your interest in my work. I'm glad you like to draw, too.
Maybe it's because physical things in general appeal more to people. Yes of course ^^ your work is amazing! Yeah I love drawing although I haven't posted anything on deviantart xD I don't feel confident enough yet. Furthermore I suffer from artist's block lately and anything I draw just seems bad to me xD
Tolkyes's avatar
Maybe take photos of things that appeal to you and draw them- clouds, landscapes, trees, people, etc.
Or you could try drawing spontaneous organic imagery ('biomorphism').

You could also try combining these different techniques as well.
Aaaaaaw thank you for your interest!!!! 😊😊😊 I guess I can't draw because I feel burnt out from university 😕 Maybe when I'm more relaxed I'll be in the mood to draw again and try your advice too!! 😄😄

Yes, it's good to take some time off and relax for awhile first. Don't try and force yourself to draw. You'll feel it when you're ready.

The sea critters coming out of nebulas are just fantastic, it is some kind of liquid tension on these black holes, concerning the unknown... joking :D

I'm glad you like my 'luminorphs' as I call them. 
Theyre meant to be both mysterious yet also a bit whimsical.
Cherry-91's avatar
I am glad you used the term whimsical, I interpret it as of a humorous manner, I think of them as charming Characters !

It looks like the cover for a band album. Its epic
Tolkyes's avatar
Thank you. The image was used as a poster promoting an art gallery in Denver.

That's really cool.  Congratulations

mesmerizing indeed. Gives me an idea of whose DeskThemePacks I port next.
Their art style is similar to this.

This is superb!  It really sparked my imagination!  I have many feelings and theories about the topic of black holes and wormholes.  One of them is that black holes might be the wombs that give birth to new universes
Tolkyes's avatar
Thank you very much. There's a black hole in the middle of each galaxy, much like the eye of a hurricane. Black holes create as well as destroy but much is still a mystery about them.
