This is beautiful! I can't believe you used a mouse for this. :p Although, i think you could sharpen her ear a little more, just looks a bit blurry to me. :)


However, /me steals your talent. =p

You painted this?? Wow! It's quite Zen IMHO. Have you studied Zen at some point?? like the way that you have reduced unnecessary detail in the image. The viewer contemplates the form of the womans face as much as the colour of her skin, and her age is indeterminate. As someone badly in need of a little bit of Zen in their life, thank you Enfero. m(_ _)m

I've seen some Zen art, yes. It's quite fascinating, you can create your own image from it, fill in your own details to stimulate your mind. I've seen very few that's really good though, but if done properly, it's breathtaking indeed.

But I wouldn't say that this is Zen, it's not the usual theme or way of doing it, hah. Would need to reduce the details a lot :D Glad you enjoyed it!

Sure, you may do that. And where exactly did you find that definition of Zen? =P Now I got all interested again, heh.
I'm sure you find find zen art by searching google. But as I said (my opinion, of course), the real treasures is hard to find, but worth the hunting :D

hehe - use google for image search. i use it for a lot of stuff. I still don't trust 'em though, ever been to: [link] ?
The site design is crapola but the content makes you think.

i used google to find many definitions tonight. just use "define: x" where x is the search term you want to google to find definitions for from the web.
i used zen, insight, koan, buddhism as x tonight.

Thanks for the permission to use the image Enfero. :)

Wow - zen art. I'll have to check that out - I've only seen mandalas before.

But I still think your photograph is 'zen art' too. Here's why I think it is zen. Here's a definition of zen I found on the web -

a Buddhist doctrine that enlightenment can be attained through direct intuitive insight

so, perhapsanything that makes us think - and I mean 'think' as in profound/deep/USEFUL thinking- leading to some insight which feels intuitively 'right' could be called zen I think.

:-D


Zen books I've read: I've never actually studied zen formally, just read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and the Zen of Palm, the technology/human-computer interaction design philosophy behind the PalmPilot - the first, successful 'handheld computer'..

Here's a link to the Zen of Palm - it's not technical, and I personally think its da bomb as a guide to thinking about human-computer interaction design .. or life perhaps? It has cartoons and pictures too.

[link]

'Compressed Buddha': I've got a 4 page printout of 'Buddha Quotes' I copied off some website a few weeks ago which I quite like - should read through 'em all every day and I'd get into a lot less hot water probably. I could probably add another page or two but there's a lot of gold in them thar hills. I gave it to my younger brother, who had a nasty break up with his first long term girlfriend recently, and he used one of the quotes in an e-mail - and he said it also made him feel better. That was hella cool for me - I high-5ed him and said "woot" AFAICR.

Finally, a bit of traditional zazen meditation: From November 1999 to midway through January 2000 I stayed in Japan as part of a study tour at Komazawa University in Tokyo. It's well known for being good at marathon I think. I did some zazen there, which is zen meditation where you sit facing a wall and just .. shut up, for a while. heh

A priest walks behind you and taps you on the shoulders with a big wooden stick - this is an old technique that's used to make sure the zen monk is not sleeping. :)

I also did some calligraphy (which I suck at) and pretended to be sick the day they went through the tea ceremony. Pity. I regret that now.

I think I'll post this to my blog. :)

Thanks Enfero!

Oooh very nicely done. This is very smooth. hmmm and I just realized I've never commented on digital art drawings such as this one. And I don't know how to do that either. All I can draw on the puter are stickmen... on paint. But whatever. So for me this is great. And I find it realistic, and artistic (the particular position of the model's face). And I love the darkness of the background. Beautifully done and thank you once again for the comment.
