Hehe looks like translucent Grateful Dead bears holding hands...

I like it, though i think it doesn't look as unifying as it could. Maybe it's the b&w background with the trippy color stuff in front, maybe there's something you can do to associate them more, er somethin.

I really like what's in the foreground

cool shiz strump

heh thanks for the feedback man :smile: I appreciate it

I wasn't really looking to make them "associated" or "unified" other than the tentacle/pincher embrace lol - like a meeting of two different races or something - I was thinking to myself "damn they're not DIFFERENT enough" :wink:

Its always nice to hear another perspective on my works - thanks.

I agree with Murex. You can do much better, Strump.

I think it looks too "flat". The colors don't match, the foregrown doesn't match with the background, and it doesn't jump in my face like your other desings do.

Oh well, that's just my opinion though. Maybe papaver would like it! Anyways that's what being an artist is about. Trying out new stuff and seeing what works, and what doesn't.

thanks for the honesty, guys :smile: - This thing didn't turn out how I was envisioning (most of my works don't..) heh I was hoping somebody would "diss" it so I could verify that it wasn't as alive as some of my other stuff :smile:

Regardless; last night at a friend's house I stunk up the background, so here's a link to the newest version (probably last - I've got some new ideas to work with from this project).

also, if you're interested in how this thing came to be, you can check out the files in this directory - if you have photoshop 7 you can see the layering on this thing (psd files are included in there) heh its madness :smile:

Thanks again for the feedback, guys - it was all very helpful indeed :smile:
