Your style reminds me of that one of R0V whom released Pattar Med Kuk the other week. Perhaps the both of you could start working on a collection of sorts.

In my opinion it's a unique art piece.

Let me explain a bit: When we are drawing a realistic picture (not a lot differences from taking a photo), somehow we kill a part of our imagination, the way how our brain stores feelings(!) in a subjective way. When this inner picture (colours,perspective,tone,..) is much transformed and is apart from the seen reality, it may guide us through the process of creating a feeling-driven piccy that's usually called 'masterpiece' at the end.
I have the suspicion this painting was managed to reach this, at least for me.
And I think, the Vector City theme is a great idea of doing some new stuffs, created a new world in my mind.

Great observations, Ninjasbane. I would even say that the dog symbolises all of us - staring at a work of art, not understanding it, while the artist has humbly portrayed himself as a little bird, at the same time elevating himself by his work of art, but also leaving his place in the heavens, so to speak, to interact with the common earthbound people. I have tears in my eyes.

Paul-- Yes, but you fail to mention that the path is not wide enough for vector people walking two abreast (a statement on overpopulation if I ever saw one) and that there is no trail to the bridge at all (clearly a condemnation of the consumer culture, as it illustrates a disconnect between the people and their food, if one is to assume those buildings in the background are barns and grain silos).

The canine's interaction with the statue is an interesting one indeed, and I am quite certain that a thesis-length article on the nuances of this encounter would not be thorough enough to do it justice. I'll leave that to someone more scholarly than I.

There is a powerful message in this picture. Nature, represented by grass and water, is beautiful and pure while man-made things like the twisted bridge and the flat buildings are unnatural and don't fit. The old couple and their domesticated animal are inbetween, they are only almost two-dimensional. Art however, symbolised by the statue, goes further in the "natural / beautiful" direction, but not quite the way natural beauty does. I'm just unsure how grandmas boobs fit in there - I believe they are fake.

An interesting picture, I like the face of the lady and her vector titties, but you forgot to shade the side of them like her legs.

What is it they are out walking, a pet sloth? :)

Btw, all pictures does not need perfect perspective drawing. Humanity made fine art for thousands of years without it.

It seems you base your art on the golden proportion/ratio, using the Fibonacci spiral.
This is the third evident result.

Could you please describe something on the intellectual/emotional work behind the image, why the use of any superficial geometry?
Did you go to any art education or did you catch it in the wind so to speak?

Does any superficial composition technique make images better and do we have results of cheating death?

@JSL: Seriously. You really need to study perspective. Get a book or something on the subject. As far as I can tell the perspective in your pictures are beyond any logic.
