evolve by gregoriousone evolve by gregoriousone
or...
'the evolution will be televised' --too many characters for dA. <Shakes fist angrily @ dA>

we were walking around the french quarter one day and i noticed someone had spraypainted 'evolve' on the side of a building. I love found words just as much as found things. I used a few different techniques in the creation of this image. It evolved quite a bit during it's development. Only a fool doesnt take his own advice.
enjoy.
i really want that tradigital category. :)

I double dog dare you to click full view

I love your works, they're so Surreal and strange.
Very much fits for making visuals to my favorite rock band. Radiohead.

it does have a certain crunchiness, i just wish that the low-res images uploaded here contained some of the more subtlties of colour and sharpness of some detal. oh well. still holds up well.

thanks cogsy.. the tilte is so apropros because this image did evolve quite a bit and I used some gradient adjustment layers in new and different ways.
at some point is just started to feel like painting something abstract.

well that was right - free does enjoy. and i also look forward to the tv show. [on the nature channel?]

Really like this. The use of colour works really well along with the sharp lines almost dividing it into panels. Nice.

thank you.. i used the sponge tool saturate those blues and yellows and oranges. using 'evolve' started out as a whim, but it somehow just fit.

Yes, the colors are very pleasing to me. It's subtle and not so contrasty, i like that too. My favorite part of it is the top where some gold overlaps the blue...it really really looks like a painting at that point.
