Daily Deviation

Given 2008-10-28
Smart and striking, Family Portrait by ~mahaon has a modern art appeal, with a tongue in cheek title! The gradient is an excellent mix of complementary colors and the design is even more pronounced by a terrific use of light and a solid compostiion. Well done! ( Featured by Sophquest )

Blimey. Thats apophysis? Thats a few thousand levels above what I do. If I might, how did you achieve this?

A striking work in its own right. Beautiful colour coordination: your choice of browns and blues give this "family portrait" just the right degree of solemn maturity ... I also really like your use of space and the way the figures interlock and melt into each other. It's amazing how the eyes are just as hypnotizing as the black spaces surrounding them.

Bravo, and congrats on the dd!

(And by the way, why apophysis?)

A very original piece of fractal art, harking back to some moment of abstract classicism, as might possibly have flowered on the West Coast in the fifties.

Colour harmonies that are rich and cool. A beautiful image.

I absolutely love this; it has a harmony to it while tingling my mind. I think it would be awesome on a shirt, mug, or something.

I'm going to Color Theory next month and I hope to make pieces like this.
