Ouch. Im getting a strong emotional response from this; somewhat painful and I don't want to look!!! If that is what you were going for, you nailed it!

I like the concept and colors in this Ben. My only suggestion is where the reg gets diluted, by I 'm guessing water, and loosing its impact.

This brings in the issue of how to make red look REALLY red. Brightness can only go so far before you have to create a stage for the red to scream and add to that overlaying more density to the primary colors.

What I like about this is the simplicity of color in a complexity of forms. It becomes a fertile playground for the mind. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the feedback. I know it's not for everyone and I'm fine with that.

I see and feel such an explosive sight...full of colors and vibrant
you did a great job pulling off with the white background and simplicity of the colors!

This is so raw and violent...you really did not need the verbal explanation of the subject. A lot of emotion packed into this with such a limited pallet.
