you should go to better night clubs, that way you won't end up feeling like this in the mornings Wink really like all aspects of this, excellent presentation and manipulation, same with the theme/concept too.

This is an extraordinary composition. The detail seen in the large version is breathtaking. The way you have blended the surreal textures over the human(?) figure is very realistic.

Though this is a very dark and threatening creation I feel that the white dove symbolises "hope" amidst the horror depicted in this image. There is a powerful imagery in this Artwork too. It has great meaning.

This is Art of the very highest quality, which reveals a great deal about the Artist who created the image. I think this is a deeply personal composition touching on the very depths of your psyche.

I love this image because it is so significant and tells us much about the Artist who created it. You have an exceptional talent Victor, and possess amazing ability and imagination to convey your deepest thoughts in your Art.

It is truly a staggering piece of Artwork. Beautifully created and presented with great style. It is an honour to comment/view such Artwork. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Thank you all so much. Ken for been a new member of this great site you seem to have a very insightful eye, this is indeed a very personal piece which I dont really want to explain but will say that your are pretty well on target with your opinion. Never really considered this to be that dark an image compared to past work but the joy of surreal work is in others interpretations and perhaps in a few cases some people know mw better than I know myself at times.

Thanks

Thank you very much Victor for your kind reply. You are correct when you say I am a "new member" on this site, but I have been creating, viewing and interpreting "Art" for many decades now.

Part of this was due to the Profession I had, but it was mostly because I have always loved Art and been able to "read Art and people" very well.

Apart from the astonishing technical skill you have to create images such as this, you are also very adept at self-expression through Art. Perhaps that is an even greater skill.

I thank you.

Victor another impressive interpretation on life. This is quality not only in execution but in thought. Looking at this you get in an instant the message the emotion. Like Bob D said " its not dark yet but its getting there"

I look in wonder at your creative skills & your prolific output are unmatched on this site. You are a true artist who has transcended photographic manipulation to a level unequalled here.
