 (2011 07 04-17) Earth
Multicolored bitmap, Middle grey as background color.

Inspired by an old Mayan sculpture, showing life's three shells of development from young, mature and old, carved in stone. Rather quickly I thought it could be part of a series of Earth, water, fire and wind (which is still missing). The main interest was to have a layer of texture to mask and to allow for the possibilities of colors in the mesh of the faces.

 You are incredible. I admire any artist that are able to pull off such restrictions and create something fantastic from it. Glad you decided to share your work on Pixeljoint.

Impressive work!

Thank you! Oh? From high and low culture, from the arts, commercials, movies, operas, ballets, street and fantastic(fantasy) art. Basically from anything which triggers me into acting. To say it short: By watching others work a lot and not to disregard any style, although we all have our likes and dislikes. I think the very best way is to be subjective and work intuitively, on the way you find out that you are not alone and you might have friends in the past working with same phenomenas, rather than friends in style or going for the latest fashion.

And then I have more and more come to the conclusion to work as much analog/digital as possible, not to lose the hand and to experiment. Most modern science has disregarded the analysis-synthesis, since most findings come from those happy accidents :)

where do you get your inspiration for your style?  it's amazing, not to mention how technically impressive your pieces are

 Thank you Helm!

I miss your work in the C64 scene!

 my favourite from the series. People who haven't worked with the restrictions won't ever appreciate how hard it is to do this, even with the help of photoshop/timanthes and other new tools.
