wow.. nice. kinda reminds me of a huge beating heart (like the one in Contra.)
just curious... did you take a photo of yourself while shaking your head side to side?

Itīs like a kind of nightmare. Scary one...

This seems rather personal.
Android, You are throwing out your souls literature onto illiterate viewers.
That takes balls. We may not now your intent of expression - art is so subjective. But something with this much energy, cant be fraud and i think its really intense. Whats going on? Does the picture say it all?

i'd want to buy a print of this if you kept going.

It's very intense, this picture is a success.
Is it also just the least bit Foster-esque?

*pulls the little crying children closely, comforting them - retinas! .. burning! ..*
of course you should all feel the powerful feeling of torment, pain, and helpless, contained anger.
i am steading myself for a dark month.
*begins crying with the children*
like fear, it exceeds all description.

What can be said that hasn't been said already. As Artists I feel that we are more suspectable to emotions, and the energy of life then other people. The more skilled an artist you are the more intense these feelings must be. In your case Andrew I can only imagine the pain that brought on this disturbing yet beautiful piece. Take some comfort at least in the fact you inspire me to be a better artist more then any teacher I have ever met in my life, as I'm sure is the same case with many of the other aspiring artists on this site.

What to say..
This piece knocks my sock off.. litterally. I was just sitting here, clicked on your link and my socks went flying across the room!
I love it. God forbid I should even try to compare you to somebody else but if I had to I'd say this reminds me of Francis Bacon's work. Maybe more in theme than in execution. He has always been a favorite of mine.
One thing that I really admire about you, other than the fact that you don't hold anything back, is that you seem to always be pushing technique and style further. I have a real problem with trying out new techniques. My paintings have found a spot that I can say I am still excited about but I'm sure I don't try enough new approaches with. I've kind of been going down a cubist/futurist road (which is why I really dont post my paintings here) that has been evolving for about ten years. But it has always been the same road I've gone down. I dont get that feeling from your work. I get the feeling that you are open to trying anything out in your work and I really admire that. I've enjoyed looking at your work specifically because of that and have come back again and again these forums because of that.

Thanks for sharring andrew!

so dark and cold, still a struggle sometimes eh Android?

this painting is a masterpiece, android. it's so beautiful! it's dark and hopeless, very life-unfriendly.
but -and that is what it really sets it on a very high level- all of it isn't achieved with monstrous things or destructive things, not even emotions like hatred, rage or anything that comes from outside wanting to harm us, the wanderer in the painting.
i see emotions like sadness, sorrow, melancholy... emotions that come from inside ourselves. not friendly to life, maybe even self-destructive but yet kinda comforting.
it feels very warm and isolated and it really touches me very deep inside under numerous layers of masks.
i really love this one.

Hey Andrew - this is my first post, but I gotta ask - how long does it take you to do a picture like that? I've just started sort of re-learning to draw and to my dismay I am unable to produce stunning masterpieces in a half hour :)

I'm starting to cry, good work.

Wow...one of my favorits so far but you can't be sure because you "produce" such **** great stuff.
When i think that it is a selfportrait after all it makes me frightend... :evilbat:
