This is extremely beautiful. I love it very much. I like the nightmarish setting and surreal menacing sky.

I just said to my mother that this is definitely something I would want hanging in the house. It's so full of mystery but in a way where all the answers are here, too. I am more and more curious to take on Abarat! If the two were created in the same time, all the more!

I actually did rotate the piece 180 degress. It looks fascinating either way. BTW, I always love the combination of yellow and black.

This has beautiful contrast. The (a)symmetry is great.

I really like the simplicity of the picture. You can read a thousand stories and meanings in it, or you could just look at it and enjoy the concept without thinking at all.
I also like the rough and sketchy style of it. That's like leaving room for your imagination, where your thoughts can move freely instead of beeing cought up in sharp edges and clear lines.

The picture makes me want to read the story. If it's half as symbolic as this image, it's a wonderful read!

I love the impressions I get from this image. The impression of growth both ways, towards the light and towards darkness. What is visible is accompanied by what is invisible, yet just as important, and everything has a hidden facet. The feeling of mirroring is very strong, but I love the fact there's no straight line that would mark the mirror.

Wonderful work.

This feels like a painters approach to a tessellation.

I see a high influence of African art in this.

I agree with M0narch - this reminds me a bit of Escher, but much grittier and fauvist. Not to over-define it too much. :) Nice work.

I really like this painting. Great contrast and reminds me of a 2d Escher.

Except for the fact that I keep wanting to turn the monitor upside down (and the folks that own the net cafe might frown on that), I love it!
