Thoughts, Alex Ruiz (2D)

Title: Thoughts
Name: Alex Ruiz
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

I've made this image for the first page of my website I've been working on for a while, but I wanted to show you guys here first! The whole idea behind this piece is about how thoughts overtake, they pull at you, or push you. And new thoughts are constantly being created, which explains the zygote like creature in the middle, that's a baby thought:) And so I think it's up to us how our thoughts 'grow up', will they become good or bad ones? Thanks for looking guys!

Hi Alex

After viewing this work I've also watched your portfolio ... and ... you are very good in making nightmare-like artpieces *giggle*.

Seriously, I think you make very well performed work. That excellents in setting specific atmospheres and moods. Also nice shades and light. Just very original work, really your own recognizable style. Very scary too, but parhaps I don't count because I can't even watch Gremlins on tv so... .

There are two little appendages on the front that the way they are curled kind of makes them look "whimsical" in my eye and it doesnt quite fit in IMHO, but other than that, two words: Awesome!
