The Abyss of the Mind by JoeMacGown The Abyss of the Mind by JoeMacGown
This was a collab with :iconmbkkr: First he painted an abstract painting, which I printed on drawing paper, then I inked the left side, mailed it to him, and he inked the right side.

Please give Marcel comments at [link]

what really inspires me about this is the title...That takes a deep understanding of your art to have a good title.

I never think about the title until I am done with something, then it usually comes to me, just pops in my head.

Astounding amount of detail. Looks like something that slithered out of a Lovecraft story (I left a very similar comment on MBKKR's side and thought I'd leave it over here as well).

Thanks, we both appreciate it! I am sure Lovecraft has given lots of fodder to many an artist.

Wow. Amazing detail! I love this style of collaboration too. The textures in the painting are exciting and fit the design quite well.

yeah, thanks, the paint textures and movement created by them really help I think...

seaword Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2009
yeah for sure. It's always fun to add detail to something abstract too. I've been doing similar stuff recently and it's a blast (mostly with ink designs created from broken pens :P)

JoeMacGown Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
very nice, broken pens, I like that. Do you have any of those posted?
Reply
:iconseaword:
seaword Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2009
I have a couple posted but the ones that I added detail afterwards I haven't scanned yet. Here's my favorite of my pen experiments though: [link]

I'm working on one at the moment which is red ink with detail in black ink that's shaping up quite nicely. Don't know when I'll get around to posting it though.

:iconjoemacgown:
JoeMacGown Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
yeah, that is cool! Some nice elements in there. I bet the detailed ones are cool as well, I would like to see those.

Red and black go very well together for sure.

the whole work looks very balanced...
but at the same time the combination of all those mini details at the left side with the bigger shapes at the right, works great :)
