  5. Hi Micheal, I like how the dancers are drawn. You have demostrate the good use of shapes.

    By the way, thank you for your comment. I haven't create anything really creative lately. Burying myself in anatomy.

    The Singapore Night Safari is definitely worth a visit if you are in Singapore. Visit their website for details.

  17. I love the feeling of movement you've achieved in this piece. It does have the look of origami, but it seems to be in rhythmic motion. The colors are very tranquil, so the overall effect is hypnotic. Well done:>

  18. Definitely origami inspired. I like their hats. Have you seen that bit in "Spirited Away" when the paper figure follows Chihiro about? Reminds me of that.

  19. There's a tempo/rhythm in the composition. Great feel to it.

  20. I've looked at this 3 times now and like it more each time. its mysterious and subtle and yet very strong graphically. The quiet colors here work very well although I enjoy your brighter graphics below too.

  21. They look like they are performing for many people and are in perfect form. Beautiful colors, feels like blue ice with these dancers caught at the peek of their abilities and grace. Such strong work!

  26. Ah, the forbidden dance of the oragami people! I like the floating paper above their heads, as if they're ready to multiply and take over the earth

  27. I love the Asian feel with the cutout collage feel. Very nice juxtaposition.

  28. Your comment on my dancers made me laugh. Actually, I'll be 35 tomorrow. I've just always had a thing for history, and believe it or not, really like listening to Big Band and Swing music a lot. Crazy, huh?

  29. excellent graphic work - your style is such a perfect match to your subject that it indeed takes on movement of its own.

  33. aw, amazing work. my original piece was going to have an asian feel but i couldn't capture the essence of dance for some reason. this is fantastic, thanks for the comment

  34. Beautiful - it's origami, isn't it? it's very decorative too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. what a neat and unique illo!! I also like it that you used such an unusual color...not the usual gold and red. I like it!

    p.s. I have fun with origami from time to time. One year I even got an origami calendar...each day I created a new piece! It didn't take long before I had 365 pieces of origami I had no idea what to do with! LOL!
