Even with the strong contrast and hyperactive colors, the picture is really easy on the eyes!

:D really, every time I see it, it makes me feel. Its the expression, the shoe, rings and gold teeth, that cigarette, the air, even the sun and flowers with these huge smiles. I would love to have this painting on the wall of my room. Could you tell me something more about this painting? what program did you use? what is your inspiration? is your original creation? A big hug!

I'm so freaking happy to hear that, dude. Because I felt when I made it too, to infect that feeling makes me feel even more! Haha. :hug: I drew it on paper and used Photoshop to color it, here's a gif of the progress shots I had made: [link] .

The inspiration was this song: [link] - My man plays this album all the time on his computer, I told him that I imagined a cool guy in a zoot suit that was walking down a road with his 8-ball cane swinging. In my head it was animated, the road rotating and the colors pulsing and the flowers are bouncing with the drums. Since I couldn't animate it I tried my best to recreate the image. X)

The inspiration of your art is music. The inspiration of my music is art.

I understand how it works, because I also work that way. It's wonderful, and I respect you for that. Everything that comes out of your fingers, begins in the heart, with a feeling, the power of your imagination works magically, and the ability to express what you feel, makes you a great artist. A big hug. I hope to receive news about you in the future. :huggle: :la: :hug: :meow:

The contrast between the color scheme is excellent. You execute the general rules well, when cool colors seem to recede, and warm colors pop out. Put both color schemes into play like this, the man seems to greatly come alive and pop out.
