amidst the work hours, my laziness and a very tough wip
( which will surely be updated in some time ) i really felt like working on this piece and sought to complete it as quickly as possible just to achieve a sense of fulfillment

i love dark art, especially when they're meant for the greater good, when they have a soul buried deep inside themselves

although i can't explain what this artwork is all about, it's something i saw in my head and wanted to capture it before it disappeared

done in two days using photoshop cs3, the waves ; wisps were created using two types of brushes and then playing hell of a lot with the settings e.g. brush flow, spacing, direction, sometimes i had to reuse the shapes and then alter their flow using the warp tool .. in small areas, i used the smudge tool with 98% smudge strength for thinner, longer strands, but the two brushes i created gave the piece it's form

i thank you all for viewing

god bless!

Just incredible... I came across this work of yours and had to tell you this is EXACTLY what I saw. It was march of 2006 Huntington Beach, CA and I awoke from a dead sleep and saw this EXACT thing hovering above, it was in the corner of my room up by the ceiling. I was so afraid I screamed as loud as i could at it and told it to go away... My wife woke up... also scared and realized how rattled I was. Have never seen it sense... Until I happened upon your art work... I almost fainted and ran to my wife and told her. I said brace yourself... I found it... What I saw that night... Of course she knew exactly what I was talking about for we have discussed it many times over the years.

So I just had to reach out to you and tell you the story of your art work being something i felt was demonic and scary as hell and real.
