I by MescalineBanana I by MescalineBanana
Eye sea.



I worked on this in small isolated spurts between June '06 and Jan '07. The full size is 3000x4000 pixels, with ridiculous detail; a full resolution detail shot can be seen HERE.
Just a little preview of the sort of sex you'll see on the print.

The original seed for this image, a drawing of a person sitting crossleged, was drawn by ~stealyourface555. My gratitude goes out to her.


Software: Photoshop CS, Apophysis



Full view is a vibration.

There's a drum loop that uses this picture as a sort-of map, going around clockwise.

It would make my day if you enabled this as a print, this would be my top pick of any print I could get on deviant art.

This is really interesting - I like the figure and its shiva-esque limbs! I can tell a lot of thought (and intuition) has gone into the placement of all the symbolic elements of the piece - too numerous to drivel on about here... I particularly love the dancing bluey fractals .. very nice work :D It would make a wicked lightshow!

Thanks. It's mostly Photoshop, but the textures on the center figure and the pattern at the top were generated by Apophysis.

if this were the first geometric-electromagnetic field around the body, the male-energy/consciousness/vibration tetrahedron is fitted over the body the way it would a female physical/pranic/etheric body. either intentionally or inadvertently; you've depicted the intuitive/harmonized level of awareness this "I" is tuned to..

"You're sick," says the lady with a lick.
The stars in the sky are in the shape of an eye.

There is no YES. There is only YES.
'Tis true as anything, I must confess.

open your higher chakras and you'll find your experiences from them are a familiar 'trip' to you.
drugs are the external methods of reaching within.
or you could quite easily call it the lazy mans way of fucking his own head to achieve a greater understanding of the underlying forces of unified awareness.

The amount of awesome this contains is inversely proportional to the amount of awesome contained within any number of country music albums. Great work. Make more stuff like this. Seriously, my jaw dropped when I saw it.
