I did a bit of blog surfing after work and was instantly inspired. More like Blown apart. By Eric Tiemens. At least take a look at this piece. Desktop wallpaper, No way around it.
and maybe while you are at it check out Neil Ross and Hans Bacher. Sometimes i feel so spoiled that i could see these artists' work a click away~ it's amazing the little Blogspot can hold so much talent and spirit. :)
Edit: a digital color study of the oil~ i am still working to get all my photo refs together. ;P
