What's Left of the Impossible World by DpressedSoul What's Left of the Impossible World by DpressedSoul
Nor, in fact, it was visible: it was like something about to appear, equally throughout, as if it hesitated to be revealed.

And what feeling prevailed? The impossibility of having any feeling, the heart all broken to pieces in the mind,
feelings all in a jumble, conscious existence in a stupor, and the heightening of some faculty akin to hearing -
but in the soul - in order to apprehend a definitive, useless revelation that's always on the verge of appearing,
like truth, and that always remains, like truth, the twin of what never appears.

Even the desire to sleep, remembered by the mind, has withered because mere yawning seems like
too much of an effort. Even to stop seeing hurts the eyes. And in the soul's complete and colourless
renunciation, only external, distant sounds constitute what's left of the impossible world.

Ah, another world, other things, another soul with which to feel them, another mind with which to know
this soul! Anything, even tedium - anything but this general blurring of the soul and things, this bluish,
forlorn indefiniteness of everything!

(Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet, Fragement #385)

how do you always amaze me so much? you have a real talent here Florian, I honestly believe you could make some serious cash in your art, And I only mean you could be a great proffessional is all.
this piece is so amazing it looks like nature itself and is made even more classic by the black and white, the trees in the background look brilliant with just enough detail to be depicted but fuzzy enough that you can see they are a background.
I can't believe how wonderfully you can bring an image to life,
:hug: great work :thumbsup:

Impressive. It must've been quite an experience to see that huge flock of birds.

I cheated. It's an overlay, and it's not a flock of birds...it's a swarm of mosquitos. ;)

Whoops! Well, did I ever not look carefully. It's an impressive image nonetheless... but the idea of mosquitoes involuntarily make my skin itch :)
