First thing i can say. Holy Crap! That is some scary stuff! To me it looks like an evil soul either trying to kill someone or something, or an innocent spirit trying to find the person who made them that way. In terms of originality, well i haven't seen anything like that! so you get five stars. your vision seems well, you're trying to scare the crap out of some people which as I've seen in the comments you definitely have. I can't really discern what technique you used but it looks like you took a picture and messed with it in PS. which is fine and i don't see any major problems. You obviously made a pretty big impact overall but there are some main impact areas. namely, the eyes and left. But overall this is an amazingly terrifying piece!
It is currently eleven sixteen AM eastern standard time. I will have a hard time going to sleep tonight. *ahem* Very well done! The eyes are haunting, the contrasting and stark background does a good job of diverting your attention to the...face. The mouth is particularly effective. Color use--very, very nice. Sepia tones and blacks are evenly distributed and all in all the piece draws you in. I can't tell whether the face is supposed to be what we're scared of, or if it's scared of something--that's the only thing I can find wrong with this. I believe it to be the former, but either is effective. I don't think I'll ever quite forget this piece.
Do not cry, do not weep. For sand man does not come in your sleep, but when life is weak. So loved ones can bury you six feet deep. Because after lifes long last breath, he carries you quickly into death. So journey down the wooden path. Along magenta trees full of heft, & forget the life you have left.
I looked at 23 pages of art from you. And i guess i had to tie Sandman & Journey together. (to the right of Sandman is e.k.g reading right? )Though they are not the only pieces i like. For example Spirit Wolf & Steve B. I am no artest, but i can't find anything wrong with your work. Keep pushing yourself and your work is all i can say. I almost forgot, Ty4tl (Thank you for the llama).
I think it has something to do with the sunken-ness of everything, the eyes, the mouth, the face itself. Like the life is being sucked out of it from some invisible force within. Very appropriate considering the desert motif. Love it.
