This is fantastic. I see tons of people and music.

in the upper left portion, i see a tape. in the bottom left corner, i see a girl holding something in front of her.

:heart:this is very interesting. it shows the ';passage' of time very creatively. i love the simplicity of it very much. keep up the great work!

Very nifty idea, I shall try that sometime. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
thespook Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
It helps to practice beforehand, and don't be afraid to 'cheat' at first by taking a peek from time to time to make sure your hand is in the right place.

I drew this one with my eyes closed the whole time, but by moving my hand down slowly I was able to stop it from becoming a pile of spaghetti ;p

im so intrigued by this. i cant stop looking at it. funny and scary.
i can see lots of faces, little books, maybe the neck of a guitar or a stickman hand, [i think the guitar got broken] a cassette/the bible/a purse, a book, cinderellas pumpkin carriage haha. pffft. maybe a microphone or some kind of cult symbol. mountains. i know what that guy means about the moose. a little guy trapped in some sort of plastic sac. or maybe the wind is blowing on him loads. or he could be going real fast?! i see a ribcage. beats like a cardiac machine. AND LOTS OF STRING.
its been fun.
now make me a t shirt.
thespook Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2005
heh. make you a t-shirt?

thanks for the comment, it's always cool to hear what other people saw in it :nod:
i read "cinderellas pumpkin carriage" and wondered where the heck you saw that, then i looked at it again and saw it instantly :giggle:

numinainferna Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2005
...I see a venus fly trap with a frog-like tongue eating a ball of fuzz, in the middle of that. And then I kept looking and realised the ball of fuzz was actually also the eye of the running-away figure on the bottom left, so maybe he doesn't appreciate his eye being eaten by some bastard child of Super Mario enemies :o

Heehee...this is fun. I like this.
psimaus Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2005
this is kewl in a strange way... looks like a monster's trying to get out at the bottom ^^
joelness Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2005
What do I see? Did someone say "badass mech-warrior" ?
tiinateaspoon Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005
You asked for it ;)
From the top I see:
A hat (cowboy?) shaped car being driven (backwards through a tunnel which isn't tall enough :O ) by a person with a long goatee. I see some fake boobies falling off a cliff :w00t: but the almost decapitated guy has his fishing line out trying to save them (why?! Eww!). Under that is a guy with a tv arial on his head and a really big comb, even though he has no hair... oh my, I see it now... he has furry nipples! :bleh: The flying snail on his shoulder looks perplexed. He has the pedestal base of a chair (with castors :boogie: ) instead of legs. I don't think he can get channel 5 either...
... at the very bottom is a phlanax of steam irons chasing Wee Willie Winkie :)
The end :blowkiss:
thespook Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2005

sirspy Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2005
this is pretty rad, I used to do this, cept I never played music, but yeah I see a lot of shapes in there.

I see a walkman, a guy running with a soda in his hand, a suprised face, a tank, some dude smoking a pipe (or getting his brains blown out) and something that even looks a little like the new years ball they drop in time square ;)
vexist Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2005
I really like it. I love just shutting my eyes and letting my pen wonder around.

thespook Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2005
UNKLE - Do android dream of electric beats (CD1 of 3)

i did some googling to find some info on the collection, but it had a very limited release, so limited that not even their official site lists it :confused:
but if you visit [link] though, you can find out a bit about them...

I see a moose on a trash heap....aah yes, of course, must have been that famous song by the beatles.
rabidwire Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
A pile of people similar to the pile of garbage sculptures that I saw in a National Geographic once. In that pile there's also telelvisions, microwaves, and a few moose.

I like. 'Tis odd.
