I can look at this image for minutes and minutes and still see some new things.... pfff scary again (and then I thought my stuff is weird, haha...). I'm very curious which band your making this for...... excellent!
wow! This is one fantastic image! It sure grabbed my attention - very Bosch like. If this can be done with a camera and photoshop, I have a lot to learn yet! Excellent work! :)

Graphic aRT Dear David, I studied Photography, Painting, Scenography and Digital Design at the University of Fine Arts in Athens. I think my biggest strength lies in being able to externalize the chaotic state of the human nature in my own characteristic way. I morph, disfigure and extend the human figure within space, thus giving it a metaphysical dimension. All the figures you see in the "Renaissance" part I" composition are source images that were acquired with my high resolution digital camera, since the size and the quality of the source imagery is integral to the final result. These were further processed and manipulated using Photoshop and Painter IX. Personally, I don't think Renaissance is Graphic Art photography doesn't have neither limitations nor stereotypes. I am just an artist who is trying to decode the human nature. Of course I admire traditional photography techniques and composition, but in our days Art needs fresh and new elements, to breathe and recreate. So, I think it's high time we stopped considering Photography as merely a way to record and depict reality. It's time to try to redefine it, give it a new image and adapt it to our contemporary needs. We should have no limitations and therefore feel free to enhance it with the aid of other visual arts, be it painting, dance or installation, always having as the main and only criterion the need to express one's inner self. thanks for your comments
Hieronymus Bosch an influence here?
Original, intriguing and disgusting! cheers Jana
Graphic Art This is fantastic graphic art, but it isn't a photo in my opinion. Please tell me exactly what part of this image was taken with a camera.
Just like a painting by a great renaissance painter there are plenty of details (no matter how disturbuing) to discover here.

First of all I find this image very deep,rich and multilayered. It is the kind of image I feel you would find in a Grimoire or Book of Spells. Secondly I am interested in your views on image making. Whether the tools for making the image are of paramount importance. Is it really the type of camera you have that makes for an successful image? Is it the fact that you know the in's and out's of Photoshop? Surely it cannot be. In this I seem to be in agreement with you. It must be your creative experience filtered through your education and life. You are not a photographer, you are an artist. Although the tools you use and what you call yourself are irrelevant, the journey you take is not. As has been said, Ars Longa Vita Brevis. Many Regards Ken.
