I like the contrast between the realistic face and the cute colourful creatures a lot :)

Wait?! Did you airbrush him? He looks real! :X Anywho, I quite enjoy your black and white idea with having the colors speak for themselves up top. I quite enjoyed it! :D Favorited ;)

Wow. This is an incredible piece. Did you really paint that guy? Because he looks like a photograph. I was almost certain this was a photomanipulation when I first saw it...

I love how you made the "reality" part of the piece black and white and the "imagination" bit all colorful--a great way to illustrate the concept! You've also got a nice array of creative and reality-based things here (shout-out to Ariel!), which I think does a great job of showing how artists take inspiration from the world around them and also from those weird little parts of their brain ;)

I think the smoke could be blended together a bit better, because the textures change kind of abruptly. But that's a minor detail, this is a great piece overall! Thanks for sharing :)

Amazing. Very original and interesting. I like how everything is black and white except monsters and other imaginative things in smoke :)

This is what i qualify as an artistic bigbang.There is void, emptyness for years and years and all of the suddent.
A tiny sparkle of imagination.
Who creates billions of thing.

This artwork gives a definition to Art itself.

Congratulation, it's not common to see such things nowadays.
