This is amazing! The way the nest is the person's hair and vice versa is so creative and the little bird is adorable! You are a fantastic artist! :)

I've just spent ages trying to compose a meaningful comment about how incredible this is. But to put it simply, this is one of the most inspiring images i've ever seen and i'm so happy I came across it. Absolutely wonderful, i'm in awe. :love:

Wow, your comment really moved me. The picture took a while but was worth the effort. I wanted to get prints made but the gallery flaked on me. I'm just glad that people are still seeing it and having some kind of positive reaction to it. I think I should put up a hi res version or something...Thank you so much.

I've been browsing DA for years and i've never yet found an artist who i've felt so inspired by, so all the thanks go to you, really. I'd love to see a hi res version, if you ever get around to putting one up. The picture is well worth all the effort it must have taken - I just love your ideas, too. They're so very original. :la:

Whoa...the concept here is just stunning, and chilling. And I really like the colours - the blue really sets off the otherwise dark colours, and really enhances the drawing overall... you are fabulously talented, I love this! :heart:

I'm doing a summer project and chose this to base my response around. While I was trying to describe what I interpreted from the drawing I came up with this;

Nature will continue to accommodate itself when the stone face of humanity crumbles, finding nurture and safety in the ruins. Our ages of struggle with resolve themselves as we realize Natures freedom is indomitable, and their retaliation will be a reminder that what once embraced us has coldly condemned us to never again contaminate its skin, or poison the depths of their tears.

Now I have no idea what you were trying to say with this picture but I just thought you might be interested in what your art made me think!

Hey there, thanks so much for the thoughtful insight and in sharing your opinion. I have a few different meanings in this piece and I wouldn't insist upon any valid interpretation, but I am grateful if it makes anyone think about life and this world around us in a deeper way.

Cheers! :D
