Subconscious Reality by DeepBlueDesign Subconscious Reality by DeepBlueDesign
Magic Realism .... One of my favourite art genres.

Magic realism is over the top symbolism, in your face colours and eye-watering contrast. Most of all it has messages which are private to the artist and leaves the viewers guessing... You might think you know what it's all about, but you could be wrong.... :O

I like it.

I realize this is not for everyone and it's very different from my other art work. However, I like to try different things. Next week you might get a Nike ad (only joking :) )

This is a manipulation, but apparently on dA you can't do Magic Realism anywhere, let alone in Photo Manipulation, so I had no choice but to post it in "Digital Art -- Photo manipulation -- Surreal. Closest thing but not quite ....

I had a closer look at the art posted in "surreal". Hmmm ... Might actually move it to "Fantasy". Then again, maybe not ...

Why a manip can't be magic I have no idea. In my opinion there's nothing more magic than a manip.

Anyway, this is not my journal, so I'll shut up now :D

This is awesome! Slightly Dalí-esque, but still really cool! I like the water droplets coming off her hair and landing in the shell =D

I'm getting quite a lot of nice reactions, I never expected that. It was just an experiment really. :)

Hmm, this is rather pretty interesting. It kinda like you have a message vibrating on you just from watching this work. might watch you though.

Awesome work! I had to take a closer look in order to see everything what is in the manipulation but it is worth it.

This is great really feels like a crazy dream blending reality with nearly a cartoony aspect to some parts of the picture. Nicely done.
