ok, i can't believe how last minute i'm posting and since i only have like 2 minutes i'm not going to talk too much..
basically i found an ENORMOUS stack of national geographic at school..butchered them with a heavy heart and created this. all paper,not exactly the most creative material but hopefully you'll forgive me,  it's about 4 1/2 feet by like 2 feet i think, i already sold it so i can't provide exact measurements..









it's based on a comic i once saw which impacted me a lot, if you can't tell..  anyway if you can't tell it's a city turning into a monster that is eating the flowers..i find both the city and nature beautiful so it kinda represents natural beauty being consumed by artificial beauty..blah blah blah and other artsy stuff..hope you enjoy Wink

Wow. That's really neat looking! I can see you used magazine pics for the buildings, did you use them for the sky and clouds and flowers too?

I can't believe that's all paper, I really thought the sky was paint.
