We're All Ugly Inside by stroppy-mchorseguy We're All Ugly Inside by stroppy-mchorseguy
Finally. This took me #(%*&$^(*@ing too long. Furthermore I didn't even know what I was doing. At least, I had a vision but the execution, the technique, even the program I was using changed while I was doing it. So it looks a little different to how I originally envisaged it. Either way I really hope the original effect I was shooting for still comes across, as the essence of the composition is preserved.

Anyway, I don't even know whether I like it or not as I have burn-out. What I do know is that it's done as far as I'm concerned!

i actually googled "we're all ugly on the inside", I feel like I can relate to the rabbit guy, as I was thinking about the topic. it was something i decided to be true. meaning: when broken down to its base parts, every human body looks the same, it's ugly/repulsive/grotesque regardless of how the individual looks on the outside. This also applies to personality. the image we project to others, with fashion, what we decide to discuss and share with others, what we present to others, when broken down is all just a mechanism of the mind, the ego. put like that, nothing seems too cool anymore, and nobody is especially beautiful.

(sorry about the delay, I log in on average once per month, if that)

That's very much in the vein of what I was getting at. Our experiences, the way they relate to them, over the years I thought a lot about how to make sense of them, sense of why we act the way we do, and why we call some things good and some things bad and why there's both agreement and disagreement about them. And I do think that human behaviour (and animal behaviour in general) is somewhat reducible to some very simple core components, in which we essentially are driven to define what represents reward to us, and then decisions we make are our attempt to negotiate this.

And I don't think that it's an injustice to our natures to describe ourselves in this fashion, without passing off that which we can't comprehend as a beautiful mystery. If you understand, ugly, beautiful, it doesn't really matter in the end. And only if you understand will you be able to tell when the whole is greater than the sum of parts.

On an unrelated note, I just made a triple entendre.

Except this poster, being the poster itself, and yourself. I'm thinking there's one about how the inside of the poster (submission) itself is not ugly... would that be it?
