Loved this submission Justin. I think you are the only artist I know of who reminds how beautiful animals really are. And then it reminds how we really need to take care of these animals! So a nice environmental undertone going on here too! Awesome work, as always!

Personally, when I make digital art, I throw in some random things together and blend them all. I just try to make a piece that will be appealing, but often I have no concept or idea behind the image at all. Is what you just said an excuse because you have not defined a concept for this image of yours, or do you ACTUALLY want people to interpret it for themselves? : )
Sorry, that was overly pissy. But seriously, it's a bit whack to tell someone they are making excuses because they ask their audience to utilise a shred of imagination in interpreting an piece without wanting to overtly narrate it's purpose.
Sorry, I did not mean to sound so judgmental in my comment (tried to lighten it up a bit with the smiley face ). And no, of course it does not come as a surprise to me that you don't want to explain the meaning of your artwork, even though I am still curious, because of the response you made to mihaimcm94. I saw your response to him as kind of rude too... for example you could have said what you just said to me instead: "I have my own reasons and concepts behind the piece - thats why I made it. I shared it so people can enjoy it and find their own meanings." I understand that, and it's completely fair, many people do this. However, I thought I saw myself in your post, that's why I was curious, but I didn't mean for my response to come off as rude. And I wasn't "telling you" you were making excuses, I was asking, but yeah my word choice ("excuse") is not so fine. Again, when I make a piece I sometimes don't think twice about what I do and spend a lot of time making some sort of abstract concoction with stock images trying to just make it look good. But, I now realize it was foolish of me to ask you such a question because you are a developed artist and I should have assumed you are past that stage if you ever had a stage like that in your career at all.
Hi total stranger - this may come as a surprise to you, but I don't feel the need to justify myself or explain my artwork to you. I have my own reasons and concepts behind the piece - thats why I made it. I shared it so people can enjoy it and find their own meanings. I don't make any "excuses", and frankly I find your comment offensive.
