It's "I like subtle art" instead of "What like subtle art"

The carpet is amazing. What like subtle art, I hate lots of things going on and a lot of bold colors
All of you're works have that
oh and I love patterns and shapes like these

lol "OH GEEZ OH MAN"... Too cute. Seriously.

Anyways, I loove the picture... Of course if I ever stumbled upon the scene in real life, I'd probably run away screaming like the little girl I am.. but it's seriously awesome. ^__^;

>__> I know you're gonna get a lot of comments because of the DD, but I just wanted to give you props for your art in my own little way..

I take this deviation to praise your work here on dA. :)

I think your style is unique and I love your work regarding
1. the details it always contains
2. the great ideas/ concepts
3. Your overall creativity

Plus, you are one of the few artists who permanently produce great art and whose reputation is not based on 'OneHitWonders'

You are truly one of the few artists I adore on dA. :hug:

nicely done, eerie... but nicely done. Good job on the texture. You have a very specific style that I've noticed, a flat 2D flash look to your stuff and yet you add just enough depth to keep it very very interesting.

eeerie. it brings to mind some kind of twisted conspiracy story about shiney aliens pretending to be humans in a huge smoke-an-mirrors-intrigue game... this is near the end of my imaginary movie when the good guys finally meet the freaky glowing-headed aliens in their gothic mansion out on the moors of scotland. :)

Mirroring and perspective distortion. It still took me a couple of days to draw it though.

Oh wow. I love how the faces look almost 3D unlike everything else in the drawing. They almost seem like floating around in the air. The rays are also convincing. How did you do the carpet?
Reply
:iconnyctopterus:
nyctopterus Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2006
The carpet was a few patterns mirrored, and then I used a perspective distortion on both of them. Took me forever.

their faces are wonderful!!! How did you get i to look like it really shine???Was it a thick pencil or ink? And another question is what is the concept???I think that the people "The Society Shiners" represents life and people but the background and their faces show how they are rich and the "The Society Shiners" got their name because of their wealth.So it shows what money can do to people. Can you tell me?Please.
