Rearranging Openings by IvanMoe

:iconmivala:
Surrealism...never easy to pick apart but I've got the time so I'll give it a shot.
There's an exceptional degree of movement in this piece -- it is the syrupy propulsion of some cognizant entity, a piece with so much simultaneous depth and clarity that I'm just a little blown away.

You really did a gorgeous job capturing a divine sort of texture, and for that reason in itself, I'm rather impressed. I love the way the teeth disintegrate into a pattern, one that (at a glance) returns the viewer's eye back to the lips and mouth. And despite being a seemingly impossible scene, I feel like the image is very expressive and lively.

My only objection to this piece is with regard to the top row of eyelashes. It's forgivable to me, of course, because I'm so infatuated with the rest of the piece; though, figured I'd mention why I was hesitant to give 5 stars for technique. Call me picky, but they could use a little something more. The rest of the eye is fantastic, however, and I love the attention to detail (blood vessels and reflection).

On a final note, I really dig that section right above the mouth, as well as the consistent usage of black to exemplify "holes" toward the bottom.

OVERALL: Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove this piece. Surreal and wonderful; it brings me joy just knowing that this kind of art exists. Bravo.:woohoo:

Haha, no problem.:laughing:
They actually remind me a little more of the strands you see on feathers. I think they're just too consistently thick; zee bottom ones are fabbbbz, though.:thumbsup:
