I'm gonna disagree with that. He looks surprised, wondering, and possibly in fear of what is in front of him as it is. We cry in reflection, not in the moment. (Of whatever is happening in this scene.)

Good work, I really like the dust/debris moving through the city. I don't think we've ever seen smoke of that scale moving through a city, other than in Oklahoma City and in New York City. Even when buildings are demolished properly, 100% of all objects that create debris are stripped out of the structure first, so there isn't that much dust and debris to spread around, as what happened with the towers.

Strong because of the juxtaposition of realworld (another 9-11) and dreamlike (loss of gravity, people made of paper) imagery. Although I always thought of 9-11-style destruction as science fiction before it happened. Scary.

Definately like the image...It pushes the disturbed button inside of me.
When this happens, I usually use humor to balance out the negative emotion. It reminds me of what happens after Godzilla eats a Taco Bell restuarant.

Beautiful work indeed...
Hits me like a shockwave shot out of a near nuclear blast.
Great work, and makes you think a lot about the world.

IMO the image has that typical "fallout" feeling, maybe because of the design of the respirator, a bit of a 1960's sci-fi vision.
The man's head falling apart reminds me of a Dali painting he painted after he saw an A-bomb explosion, or he heard about it - not sure of that....

Just one bit of critics: The man's right eye looks a bit wierd, there is a brihter ring in the iris soruonding the pupil....
Still, it's a professional painting... congartulations!
I really wish I could remember my dreams....

Good thing we have 9/11 so that everything that involves destruction and 'bad people' now finally have a name.

I really like the painting. I often get inspired to put my dreams into artworks but rarely ever do. It truely is an image with hidden messages to make you think.

Image is awesome

Just my 2 cents but in your dream it looks like your one of the guys wearing the mask's since you said you watched the reflection in his googles.

So its evidient that you are some how responsible for or responding to the tradegd that has just befallen upon you.

Regardless this is defintely eye candy.
