heeeey... wouldya lookit that o.O ... don't think I've ever seen anything quite like that before.. it's a totally awesome concept! - I wonder if they shake hands to mate.. or arm-wrestle for territory!! ... I love the mixed media feel to this.. the styalised nature of the forms at the bottom of the swamp, contrasting nicely with the photorealism of the hands themselves.. but somehow they all seem to fit together quite well! .. I love the way you've thought about the shame of the hand and what form their tails should take, (for example, following the curve of action on the big one on the left... so it actually looks like it could be swimming along) .... I really would hate to fall into this swamp though.. I imagine they'd all come swimming after you and grab you and pull you down into the abyss..... I'm :+fav:ing this.. because I totally love the concept and the originality of it. :nod:

Very original art- don't know what to class it under. I love the "waves" at the bottom. I the whole comic-like idea, it really makes it jump out at you. A fav and I'm going to watch you young man. :sherlock:

Haha, wow! That looks really snazzy! ^__^
MrSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005
i think the spirals at the bottom are unnecessary, or if you explain why they are there... otherwise it is a great idea. :)
Vladm Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005
Just somethings that represent the bottom of the swamp, take it like corals or so :)

Thnaks :)
MrSamurai Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005

fallenangeldust Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2005
This is really cool, although i am not sure i am drawn to it so much. I do like it though.
scamper Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005
Very intresting and cool result. =)
I like. They look like tadpole hands...
slipknotart Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2005
it looks weird but it has something nice
angler-photi Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005
Wow, awesome; I can tell that it must've taken you a lot of time and effort, and I like the style. I think the hands are a little grainy but not noticeably (it might be the texture). :+fav: for sure! =D

Wow, great photoshop work. The whole surreal aspect really gets me. Nice work
thrak Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like the spirals and the colors, the hands kinda' look like little sperms don't they? great work!
Turerkan Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005   Photographer
again, a very good art from you:D i really love your stuff!

however i think you need more quality pictures:) texture and your hands both look bad saturated and bad lit. if you had better stuff, your composition would also look much better i think
Kenji-Himonatashi Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005
that was very creative, nice work
its like the hands are all grabbing for somethng...but you dont know what...
busy hands busy hands.
BeckieSemler Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005
Wow that is so weird. I love how murkey the water is and the poses of the hands.
da-flow Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005
I like the the obscure mix :)
very interesting work ..
tilq Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
men je tole zelo usec. Bravo!... me pa dve stvari motita:

1. roka se spremeni v "repek", prav tako pa udi textura... zakaj ne bi probal texture roke potegnit malo bolj v repek?
2. osvetlitev n desnem zgornjem kotu je zelo linearen, kot da bi imel zgoraj postavljen reflektor... zakaj ne bi izhajala iz tocke?
mishi27 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2005   Photographer
that's awesome! it sort of reminds me of the LOTR when the people are undrenearth the water O_o i like how there is rays of light coming down too, like its not so far from the surface :)
ekster Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2005
Oh man that's totally cool and trippy! :) Definitely a very original idea and concept and itswell executed; the colors and the composition are wonderful! Very good work :)

lullabies Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2005
i like eet, very original concept. i especially like the one that is pointing. the only thing i didn't like was the colour of the water, i found it kind of icky :P but maybe that weas your intention. great deviaiton nonetheless :)
esjessi Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2005   Photographer

Bombay Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2005   Traditional Artist
