I forgot to ask before, but how long did this take you? The details look stunning.

Took me waaayyy too long to finish! I attempted color before I decided on monochrome, and was about 10 hours in before I decided to switch, haha.

I think I probably spent about 15 hours total...give or take. I worked on it on and off. =)

i actually really like this in black and white! not that i wouldnt want to see it colored, of course, but i really like your black and white stuff because its so like...mystical and shit. even your little dog sketches have this fancy layer of blur magic that i really, really like! (i know my description of art terms is awesome dont laugh) ANYWAY i really enjoy the characterization of the tiger's face in particular! and the little monk is so great! i also really like the flow of the whole thing, and how i keep finding new little animals to see!

ah, thanks! =D

This piece was EXTRA DIFFICULT because of all those animals. It really improved my skill in values however, so I don't regret making it in black and white. c:

I think the magical blur you speak of is the Gaussian blur, which I still shamefully use on occasion when i'm too lazy add in textures. I think I only used it ONCE in this picture, and on something fairly insignificant. But! that tiger is definitely my favourite. And if I am to be honest, I really only finished this picture so I could put his beautiful face online haha. I am glad you like it! DRIVE TO SALEM AND HANG OUT WITH ME WOMAN.

Honestly, I would pay the price of a movie ticket to see something like this being painted, it would be a lot more interesting to me than most summer blockbusters out at the moment.

Oh man, that's quite the compliment. thanks! I probably would have paid to just see my face while trying to figure out the values of each animal...comedic gold I tell you.

And I'm inclined to agree about the movies...some I've seen previews for are pretty terrible.

Odd request, but I don't suppose you'd like to share the photoshop file? I'd love to have a close look and dissect it in detail.

Sorry, no can do! ;) I'm flattered you'd like to look at my work in more detail, but i'm afraid giving out the PSD is too big a chance for me. =)

This is amazing... Reminds me of dreaming, one piece takes the centre stage while another moves in and replaces...

All so ethereal and surreal. Excellent work! :heart:

Thanks!!

I didn't have a solid concept when I sketched it out, but it took on a very "Everything is connected, all are one" kind of feel after finalizing the linework. =) I'm personally fascinated with Buddhist culture, so I could'nt help but put a little monk in there. c:
