thanks a bunch. I'm glad you like it and it makes sense. yeah, me either. I want to explain them all because it feels like some of them really need it but it'd be like ripping out my insides for people to look at and I'm not sure I want to be that vulnerable.
I am of the op that interpretations tell more about the interpreter than the artist. Some people are pretty skilled at reading basic tells, but in the end I consider my paintings much like a Rorschach test, even for myself. I find great insights later on, long after I completed a piece. Now, does that make sense?? Probably not...
thanks you guys! I don't think i want to add too much more to this i worked for hours but then ended up reverting to this w.i.p state plus some additional flourishes, ughhhh.
what do you think? I'm planning on just adding 'eden' somewhere, cleaning up the red part, maybe putting a simple LUNAR: SILVER STAR STORY type pixel pattern in the BG and using [link] for the top corner like it's a G.F card
sorry for all the questions i just can't keep asking jon for critiques cuz he says 'uh huh, looks good' for EVERY single thing i say.
Personally I don't see anything wip about it. It could definitely pass as an awesome finished piece if you wanted! I think the ideas you mentioned sound really cool, and yeah I think the pixel pattern you add in the background should be simple because I love all the black space. It's like the head is suspended in some weird dimension.
