Pretty! I like the animals strategically [or randomly?] places throughout. The abstract black shapes contrast well with the warm oranges.

I havent seen this since i started watching you recently.

Very Africa feeling in this indeed. Even the colors speak for Africa themselfs, great coloring scheme. The best choice in colors. Dragged me to the screen to look at it closer and discovered little things in there. small animals .. that is just amazing. You didnt overdo it in the centre, as many abstract artists do in the centre of the image, so its very pleasant for the eyes. I agree with the opinions i read earlier that in a big size this could make a wall change completely! :nod:

Finally I must credit you an excellent cropping and framing. It adds very much to the image! Great work !

Wow that rocks. I absolutely love it. The colors are spectacular. It makes it feel very warm and dry.
I really like how I can pick out the different animals in it. I really like how that same basic design is repeated 3 times in the center.
I also like those lines that are all parallel and are close to the left side. It kind of reminds me of when it gets really warm out and the heat comes off the ground--it looks like that.
The "a" is great down in the bottom right corner as is how you did that one strip going across the right side.

Excellent job. :thumbsup:

heh - im so tempted to fave this just because im african myself :-)

but i would rather give it based on the fact that despite the fact i can see animals incorporated into the central image the overall design reminds me of african birds in the trees of knysna forest - especially as the sun is setting near the end of the days hike

I like how the lack of details around the edges make you focus more so on the center and the lightened image in the back. :thumbsup:

I love this new style you've been submitting lately, very minimalistic and simple yet incredibly appealing..
Colors are vibrant and the piece itself has a very nice flow to it, I would love to see this hanging on my wall (of course I would also love to have some money.. )

I agree with *Shinybinary : the name fits perfectly.
Not that it's a poor piece; since Afrika is poor, but that it has a real "Afrika" feeling. It's sunsets, it's landscape, it's variety in animals, it's feeling is really abundantly 'here' in this print, and that makes it really good. When you look at this as an art piece for on your wall, it gets a whole new dimension and man, I'd like that on my wall. When I got my assignments finished and got my money for this vacation, I am buying me one of these :D Great job man, +fav!

awesome design... bit of a minimal look, but not...
i suppose that's a render there... it's uber kewl.
loving the colors in this, and the background is sweet...
unique look and style to this.
the right side is sweet... like what you did w/ the border leaving a small rectangle to see it and added a bit of 2D and the 'a' there... just a great compositioned piece, my friend.
incredible. i really want this hanging on my wall; too bad my ass is broke lmao...
maybe soon :D
