Very nicely done. I especially like the shade of blue you've chosen that adds to the sense of an ever expansive realm of the infinite.

This may sound weird but I see a cow face or what looks like a baby cervine/deer

Infinity is a laoded concept. So many intepretations have been attemtped. There are many fun ways to imagine finite numbers to make almost infinitely large numbers. You could try ten tetrated to a Nonillion, a Googol tetrated to a Googol. Tetration is the fourt level of notation ten tetrated three times would be a one followed by ten billion zeros. The levels go from tetration to pentation, hexation all the way up to decation being the tenth level of notation or more. Imagine the googolth level of notation maybe called Googolation. It is concievable to have a number like a Googol googolated to a Googol googolated to a Googol googolated to a Googol for a Googol levels. Something to think about.

I see a serious old-man face, like several other people. Also, the many-eyed head of a spider and a shield of diamond dust. I see a place for each of the stories I've imagined, too.

Wow, I've seen pretty much you're whole gallery, but for some reason this one really stood out. I can't really explain why. It just takes my mind to a far away place (and that's a good thing trust me). I like leaving Earth because this planet isn't all that interesting, which is why I look for art like this constantly. Anything that successfully takes my mind away from here is a wonderful work of art in my book. Thank you for sharing. :ahoy: :+favlove:

This is immediately going onto my desktop :D. Some friends of mine also appreciates your work a lot. They were quite amazed when they got a first look, they didn't say much for a while, talk about numbstruck.

Yes I hope you're happy about this one. Never seen anything like it before. I was just, really moved... and then I get all these tears in my eyes and I think, "this one made my day".
It's kind of wierd that it hasn't been promoted any more though. Have you thought about selling any of your work?

I see the face.

Lower right: Lips & chin

Too hard to pinpoint, but I can see two ears and a bald head.

Can't find the eyes or nose... but I think they're there.

I like this picture. If you don't mind, I'd like to use this as my myspace background and add some phrases in the background. I can show you when I'm done, if you'd like.

hmm, funny how its more origional to put in less detail than for put in all the clutter

but it really highlights your ability to make nebulas, i would love to learn that style of nebula because my next piece would fit perfectly with that

As I admit earlier, I like your calm monotone nebulas and ready to tolerate the big bunch of KB they use to torment my poor dial-up. :)

And don't sleep! Make more stuff! :wink:

If this was posted by 90% of the people on dA i'd be asking what exactly they've done with the picture. Probably as big a compliment i've ever given. :)
