A piece of art by *Grahamsym - Carnival of Souls

The image has been drawn with such perfection and to such a mass amount of detail that I was astounded and just felt I had to critique this wonderful piece of art.

The great thing about this image, is the fact that whenever you look a little deeper into the image you see a different object every single time. What I am seeing now, is a dome, a rocket, skyscrapers, a person about to be hammered and random patterns which look very amazing.

The background of the slightly astral sky, adds much effect to the image and makes it all the while more appealing. The angles at which the shapes and/or objects have been placed is absolutely terrific. The color blend/scheme you have used, goes perfectly with the title of the image. The tangelo illuminated objects are very eye catchy and add depth to the image.

The gradients of Gainsboro gray with a shadowy appearance in them is quite appealing as well. Overall an extremely terrific piece of art.

Wishing you all the best for the future, and hoping to see more great works from you in the near future.

I like the way U envisioned joints of a verity of shapes that intersect together collecting onto each other and thus grasping onto more intimidating proportions & as fading into the other. All of your work in a way seems to follow this method (as far as I’ve seen) but the destination & journey in the pattern wave all come out differently. The colors & shapes within the patterns are replicated "individually", by which i mean, the turn-out of each angle brushes differently because of the interior or role given to fulfill, though the idea might have been the same plenty of times.
Your piece is so abstract, surreal and colorful (in expression i can relate with understanding) but i can make out different assumptions embedded deep in your "bringing to life". The given name isn’t exact as intended but with the relating abstraction i am able to understand the product of your work which helps me enjoy it more. I can really see U bringing out the wild and confusion into the mounds and spheres expressing carnivalism.
i cant help but say that the background seems to have made it all the more appealing. The setting looks darkened with fun, distraction, secrets & random humor, but the back ground looks to me that it says otherwise: still between the cracks & nooks i see an aflamed color, like fire colliding with midnight. As the hot softened color grows enchanting, a sortta sunlight-captured dusk arises from its stream and fades into the void. How unusual that the unusuality & unconsciousness of the occasion competes against the dozing cessation of the Aurora borealis represented, as if rumored into 1 body.
This piece is very well related to your style but I wouldn’t say it weren’t original because you use the same rule over & over (as far as I’m concerned anyway). It is your own combination in the way you’ve made it & in the idea U have greatly emphasized apart from your other works. They remind me of different structures & landscapes as well as entirely different worlds at times, yet they manage to keep their own individuality, backstories, sediment feel & addressing considerately scattered apart.
In the end, I loved this piece!! The carefree and mischievous nature is alluring and festive dipped with its chaotically sly dark & firm colors. Keep it up!! :D

I see an artwork, I like it, I consider putting in in my fav's and leaving a nice comment - then I see all this rubbish about copyright... You know what I do? I leave a not-very-nice comment and I forget about the work of art, or trash.

It's not a matter of rules, it's a matter of ethics.

Reminds me of a darker version of Giratinas Distortion World.
