MoodSwing ... this piece is amazing !! I have recently gotten into digital art and this has inspired me to make an abstract story picture of my own. I love how everything is so tied in together. The "wrong way" sign is a sweet little touch. The filter (or however you did it) on the images that give them something between real life and comic book are freakin awesome. I am trying my hardest to emulate your work. Thank you for sharing it !!
again, here you seem to almost visualize the music of this city, with the risk of sounding extremely corny, you visualize the sounds being made by the social orchestra of the people and buildings and the whole city, the background or baseline is visualized with the outline of the united states, the hot air ballons are single notes, the overall tone is set by the contrast between the colorful balloons and rainbow and the skulls an darkness of thsmog over the city. hopefully you see my point and i'm not being redundant or pointlessly babbling. srry if I'm pointlessly babbling
