Well the "deed" is basically the result of an extemporaneous attempt at creating a collage, for my drawing abilities don't lend themselves to creating something similar (at least at this point in time). And I certainly didn't expect it to come out satisfactory when I broke ground on it...
Thereafter wanted to e-mail you but couldn't find your e-mail address.
Generally it's polite to ask permission BEFORE you've done the deed. I'm fine with it, but be warned there is a likelihood that the choice to include my work as opposed to creating your own could overshadow other (more productive) critique people might offer.
This one is by far my favorite. I can't even begin to tell you how many hours I pondered over this one back in the day. I love looking at it. There is a sense of depth that I always found hard to replicate no matter my detailed perfectionist approach. A brilliant work my friend. Even after all this time.
Oh, I love space art so much. . . especially with the planets, the stars, the sparklies. . . Yes, I have a thing for sparklies. XD I used to watch that jewelry channel on cable on MUTE just to see the sparklies. . . *Obsessed*
Moving on. . .
It's absolutely beautiful. ^.^ One must wonder if the view of Earth is like that, but then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You behold-ed a wonderful piece.
