Black dog by Shinybinary Black dog by Shinybinary
The first of my two submissions for Depthcore pack 24 'Calibre'. Go check it out!

As for this picture, it's my way of representing being in a bad mental state, which seems to be becoming a bit of a recurring theme I must say... I worked at pretty hi-resolution for this, you can see some 100% zoom detail shots here if you like.

This is amazing the distortion in this is one of a kind. A lot of touch work must of been done. One of my favorite styles.

It's a reference to Winston Churchill's expression.

I must say you do put a lot of detail work in to your designs.. Im just wondering why? Is that actually fun to you?

you know, since i work as a graphic designer, I dont really `work`on personal design projects anymore..they are more fun, and when the fun starts to become work, i call them finished..why should you waste that time w/o even getting paid? (its not all about the money i know.. but still.. it is WORK)

Seriously, id like to know. thx id advance for a reply

Well I think it's probably a combination of my art looking like it takes more work than it actually does, me enjoying very much making pictures, and that in the past I have found that making stuff like my website and my art has indirectly lead to good things, including money. To be honest when I am enjoying making a picture I don't find it effort at all (or not much since I got my new pc) and find it more rewarding than watching tv or whatever I else I would do when I stay in.

Brilliant. I like how you said it displays a bad mental state. the heads coming from all directions with mouths open suggests confusion and contradiction of the mind. Brilliant man, keep up the great work.

Thanks :} It's not actually named after the zep song, although I love it I'm pretty sure it's not about the same thing as this pic. I was thinking more of Winston Churchill's term.
