oh, haha wow, that is some crazy likeness for something you werent basing it on It is probably hiding somewhere in your subconscious. my one friend always analyzes all my painting and comes up with stuff i didnt intentionally base it on but it obviously is.
Sidenote: the thumbnail (in the DD banner, congrats!) the thumbnail view struck me because it seams the thing was running. Made me smile with a wow. Now I clearly see the thing is floating but an agile and running mecca is imprinted on me. Again, your art is amazing. Nice balance between details and impressionism.
