torn by confusion by philoader torn by confusion by philoader
I'm not sure how to feel. Half of me wants to forget the past, but the other half wishes things were still the way they used to be. I'm "TORN BY CONFUSION".. unsure of what I feel.. lost in uncertainty..

I worked on this for.. way too long.. and have reached the point where I don't even want to touch it anymore. In my eyes, it is still incomplete.. comments appreciated =T

Also.. please post comments!! :x (Mad) This is the first piece of art I have put this much time into in a while (that isn't an airbrushing).. so please comment!

Hello! Thanks for commenting on my art.
I really like the contrast between the grungy and the techno-futuristic, you made the two different styles work together very well. Great usage of typography too. :)

If I could suggest one thing for this piece...get a prints account, lol.

Umm, let's see here. Overall design and balance is very good. The usage of text on it is also well done, seeing how the text itself doesn't deviate too much from the flow of the piece. If I were to change one thing, it would be the "broken hearted" line there. I wouldn't have it standing out in the middle, or if it were to remain in that place, I would lower the opacity. That's the only thing that seems to break the flow. But then again, BREAK the flow, BREAK the drugs is good. You could just say that you intended to do that, and I'd get off your case, heh.

One of the best Photoshop pieces I've seen in a VERY long time.

Lol. Thanx for the comments again. :) Yeah, I wanted the heart to look broken.. this was probably one of my more inspired pieces. I've been in a bleh mood as of late.. :\

This is an amazing piece. I like the randomness and mixture of these many things you have put together. Good work man.

I love it; you combine emotion, poetry, and art (as in actual visual art) so wonderfully, and I can sympathize with your words. Great :) (Smile)

I like this because it is intellegent, unlike the myriad of works we see with some or other airbrush effect, with the title "idunnoknow". Though, if I were making the peice it would be a paradox between two different aspects, likely fitted of my own personality. So it interesting and individual to you in that way, not derivative.

Awesome man.. dunno what more i can say... can't believe you haven't had more comments on this piece, the time and effort you've put into it have paid off in a huge way.
It's such an awesome blend of styles - the ink blotch, typo, vector images... i'd get this professionally printed n stick it up on ma wall if i were u (if not for all the painful memories u seem to hold in it...)
Anyways, straight into ma favs, keep up the good work man :D (Big Grin)

Actually... its a combo of arial and myriad (i love myriad!!) I didn't think it should go under grunch since I had that trendish right side.. i dunno. :P (Razz) thanks for the comments!

Really Like the typography, a simple and widely used font and the possibilities are endless.


Nice work again, would this come under grunge?


- smile, it makes people wonder what you are thinking.
...and then they all died, true story!!!!

very nice, and complex in a good way, a lot of times people that attempt things like this end up getting too cluttered with random things that just doesnt do anything seeing as how the overall composition turns into a big blur, but yours ist still heald together nicely by the contrasting objects and superb typography, i hope you produce more work in this style in the future
