unbelieavably inspiring piece. it would totally serve as a matte painting for a game (or a movie, animation, whatever). but i can see the whole thing as a game. little guy stepping up the corner of the canvas, just checking that specific part of the level with the weird clock and then... a few pre-rendered screens later, you end up on one end of that bridge above the clock, making your way to the other side, where a very interesting cutscene awaits.
dude, that's awesome. and completely done in traditional media, i suppose. really amazing.
As always this is an impressive display of your incredible talent, using one of the most difficult mediums to muster. You take the abstract, and mix it with perfect symmetry to create some sort of wondrous thing that for some reason seems to make sense, though it is completely out of this world.
I can feel the distance, depth, and even hear the falling water in this piece. It's just so beautiful.
