2010-05-18 [Pnelma Tirian]: This looks awesome. I love the symbolism and the nice blue design at the top--sort of watery and pebbly at the same time. I would try making a .png of it and deleting the background completely to see how it looks hovering in space.
2010-05-19 [arthemis_]: That's a great idea!
2010-05-20 [The Dizzy Raven]: I personally think it's very interesting. :) It sparks curiousity to a great deal. What inspired you, if it's ok for me to ask?
2010-05-20 [Falx]: Where to begin... I like how the water from above the eye sort of melds into the eyelashes and tears. Not sure if you did this on purpose, but I like how the eye subtly resembles a fish.
2010-05-20 [pegasus1000]: I am not sure how I would rate this one. It reminds me of a rainy Thursday. I am somewhere between wanting you to make it more realistic of an eye and wanting you to take it further into the abstract. I do like how it seems to precipitate and evaporate at the same time.
2010-05-21 [arthemis_]: Yeah, I did that on purpose [Falx] :) I have something with fish/eye or eye/fish. I once made a painting of an aquarium full of eye/fish.
My inspiration was the theme of the contest: Eye-window to your soul. I imagined a window in front of an eye and went from there. I then added the tears and added the water above the eye to make the piece more balanced. As for the sunset in the pupil, I wanted to repeat the orange/brown somewhere in the piece so it wouldn't stand out as much.
I didn't won the contest, and I think I'm going to take this piece further, baring your comments in mind, at a later time.
