It’s a disturbing situation when people being followers of the idea of so-called “smoothness” get stuck by their own way of reviewing; An idea which generally emphasizes the value in using smooth dithering and colours, so that the overall invention and motifs fade into the background. I think that “smoothness” sometimes can be undesirable and that’s why it shouldn’t be the gauge of the piece´s value.

@Ninjasbane: but, but... you must know these stuff in order to understand the picture's real meaning!

(it's all about Eve's singlecolor green bubblegum)

@Ninjasbane: Christmas' pagan origins

Thanks, Groepaz. Now I have to figure out why a Christmas Tree is called a Christmas Tree since it has nothing to do with Christmas. :)

Hehe, I know what you meant. However, I needed to work in the green somehow in my faux art critique.

Well if this doesn't sum up the meaning of Christmas then I don't know what does!

The more I look, the more I see. What was the intention? We may never know, but it doesn't matter; we invent the art in our minds anyway. Isn't post-modernism getting a tad out of fashion, though? ;-) Never mind, I feel fine and I guess that's more than I could ask for.

I think it's a ROM error.

Oh! It finally hit me.

This is clearly a statement on the over commercialization of Christmas. Note the fallen cross in the lower center of the screen. The green pattern itself represents the belief in eternal life (also represented with the usual Christan Christmas symbol, the Christmas tree) through the death that is winter. However, this pattern and color is marred with thick random black strokes, which represents corruption of an established Christian more.

OR, it could be a ROM error.

Eventhough I see painful faces and thick, deep black cuts all over them, still the overall green color and the ordered pattern radiates a very relaxing mood. I wonder what it is all about.
