Awakening by edgen Awakening by edgen
I'm pretty pissed for some reason. here it is, 6:20 a.m. in the morning, and I've been working on this stupid image for the past 3 hours. before that, I piddled around on the web for another 4 hours. What the hell do I do with my time and I wonder why I don't get shit done. Specially when all these deadlines are coming up. Is it the procrastination? or perhaps subliminal thinking that i work better under extreme pressures?

I titled this piece, "Awakening" because tonight was the first time I realized I'm getting old. My 26th birthday is right around the corner, and here i am. Ready go pick up the pace in my life. Financially, mentally, and physically. This will also be the title of my next album. and most definitely... My next album cover.

Now that's cool. I love the simplicity of the whole thing, but yet the complexness. The single white curvy line that covers over the bottom right is perfectly placed, and adds that nice edge to it.
Well done justin...and ya, procrastination sucks bad. I see your predicament.

26 ain't old!

This image evokes a sense of flying very near the sun while whisps of its corona curl and dance on its horizon. Excellent.

simple yet cool.
it reminds me of....coke....subliminal advertising? /=.
id say we're all old considering how short life is, and how long eternity is...
this is but a puff of smoke....PUFF! 'gone'

I feel you bro, totally. This image could be a great self portrait in an abstract way. You are the line, well rounded and soft on the inside, and your letting the red slowly drift you away. Love ya man, keep up the great work.

Nice use of form there, it has a nice flow. The warm reds really make it feel calming.

I know to well about procrastination. I'm much the same, especially when working on commissions I'm not really enjoying. I tend to wait for the last minute, then end up getting it done incredibly fast. Funny how those ones always seem to turn out better.... :dohtwo:

procrastination is a bastard... don't let it beat you!

Nice wallpaper though - great minimal and stylish piece :)
edgen Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2003
Thanks for the comment on my "awakening" piece. You are right procrastination is a bastard, and I'd like to take it out and throw it off a mountain.
eeron Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2003
