paths that branch in hidden places where only those who are intended find the turns...
Building on top of building on top of building...
and always pyramids... arches of earth yearning towards something... spikes of earth defending against something...
the floating islands are the first step of escape. Distance from the disease... Are we strong enough to fight it so that the weak may return and once more sicken us?

You really ought to because it's a message... It needs to be complete to have it's full impact.

Lol I've been working on something very similar to this for someone's environment art for a game. Great minds think alike! I'm fond of rock gollums made out of mountains

wish i could find the companies looking for these designers too... its the sort of thing i would love to make a living from.
i could draw a mountain gollum instead of a paradigm piece if you wants for our collaboration? or add one to the piece? or make a paradigm from a mountain gollum... :lightbulb:
im having to rethink strategy right now, two people just caught my kiriban, so my work is back on full time again.. :iconshockplz:
(i didnt know 2 ppl could catch a kiriban at same time)

Hehe, tbh its nearly always by chance!!
I have an old gollum I never finished you could use / edit to fit what you want and give a twist to it if you like? I'll put him in scraps, never got further than sketching him :( He just needed a bit of quirk. Lol turn him into the paradigm>?

Oh god really? I dont do kiribans, I learnt the first time!!

i can definately have a look, im thinking something up already though to be honest lol maybe i can use him as reference? collaborations are so fun because you can mix style, and influences:-)
yeah, im starting to wonder what people think when they are trying to catch a kiriban. im a fantasy/sci-fi/surrealist that refuses to draw other peoples creations and i keep getting asked to draw other peoples characters and regular scenarios, like some person doing something... i wonder if they actually looked through my gallery first and thought about what they are asking for. i am trying to be taken seriously as an illustrative artist...i wanna stay away from copying ideas and infringing copyrights.
i guess i asked for it, anyway. now if only someone would buy something :stupidme:

This is the thing, I used to be like that, refusing to draw what other people wanted if it was something they had or fan art.
The problem being to begin with, you make it harder for yourself because you need to be known to get more work, and if you refuse work you don't get anywhere, kind've a do what you're paid for and put reservations aside for personal work kind've cache 22 :/

yeah, im trying to be entirely impartial these days where possible.
i guess i have to take life by the horns and just hold on until i get where i would like to be...regardless of preconceptions.

This is crazy... You should be an architect, you really think to everything in one night ! I'd take 3 weeks to think to so many details... God kill me now ><
Wow

none of my designs would be all that structurally stable :-S
i like your work, everyone is entitled to their own unique style and way of doing things. if i was as good as people keep making out then surely the elitist groups wouldnt kep turning me down without an excuse..:-?
i love to draw but i cannot take all the credit, i draw for fun....
wish i could really design buildings, that would be awesome!

this one i told myself i will not rush. i will do some ink, some colouring and then some ink again.
then i did all ink in one night.
typical! i like how it is coming though. this one is aimed at all those elite groups that keep denying me. i will get in them someday.

Some groups denying your works?! I can't believe in it! I think that they are too selfish if they make this with you!

are you kidding? the elitist groups wont5 give me a chance. the group
:iconartistique-inspire: still has not accepted a single work from me.
other elitist groups i havent even bothered trying yet because they just decline me. im used to it now, i guessed almost a year back they wont let me through for one reason or another.
people are not supposed to notice the holographic planes.
people are not supposed to share what they think if they have been abducted. because perhaps i am too open about life and experience i am not allowed?
or perhaps my drawings just really are not good enough yet..?
i dont know, they always say my work does not "pop" as they call it.
my work is not plastic looking, airbrushed or of lady gaga.
perhaps this is why. who knows? they wont talk to me properly so i dont give them any give either. they wont budge so i will not budge.
to join the elitist groups you must also leave every other group you have works with. that is stupid and creates this barrier we see on deviant today, where pro artists wont give teens the time of day because they are not also pro artists. is it just me or are they missing the point of what deviantart was MADE for in the first place???

I don't like elite groups. I often hear "your works good but we don't put them cause you have not more then ten in this style" -__-"
And what if I don't like to make something similar all the time? What if I don't like similar books and similar days, similar life, eventually? I'm really live this way. And I don't want to change this for some groups and people. I don't think that I'll have something more from their attention. "Simple" deviants as you and me are everywhere - not only in that groups, and I think that they give more attention and look at works more candid.
So I think that you should never mind about that :)

yeah im pushing to be more detailed but hell to them. if they dont want me i will become famous on my own. if gods are powered by belief, then what could believing in YOURSELF do?
i will make it:nod:

I don't think a lot about fame now. I want to make my best, find new style and thoughts. But I'll keep trying to find interesting people who can understand... really understand my works as you :)

if you find any others let me know, i am looking too for people like this!
i have only found a few so far that know half of what the world truly is.
im trying to wake people up one by one just by letting them see for themselves like i did with you. there are not many out there that can understand that science is an idea, not a rule.
