Default Expressive piece of art I've finally finished...

As some of you know I've been into art in the past, studied in in college for a year and spent 2 years on A-level graphics. Well I've been dabbling in it and here's something I've come up with.

Check it out, might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I hope some of you like it. It's something I began as a release for a lot of pent up frustration and rage about half a year ago, and I've added to it/modified it every now and again over the past few months...I've entitled it, somewhat unoriginally, "Wrath".

Some parts of it might seem a bit random, but that's cause there's a fair bit of symbolism wrapped up in it.

I like it for some reason.

At first, I liked the look because I thought it was Cthulhu tentacles going round the guy... :P ;D

Hah, thanks. It was originally a photograph of yours truly, and the tentacles were where the colour variations in the background created a melding-effect between areas I filled with colour. I played around with them a bit but honestly I stumbled upon the technique almost by accident. I'm digging the Cthulu vibe though, I love the Lovercraftian stuff.

What are some of the specifically symbolic components of this image?

I like this, there is alot of raw emotion in it, that makes it interesting to look at.

The mans pose can say a few things, frustration, depression, desperation... But it gives plenty for the mind to ponder about.
