Action Reaction by Ashwings Action Reaction by Ashwings
Done for an illustration assignment, we had to illustrate 'action reaction' and this is what I came up with.
Pretty self explanitory I guess XD

This is actually a really old assignment, I did it last year, but I just got it back and I didn't hate it too too much so I decided to post it, haha.
It was actually bigger but I cropped out alot cause it wouldn't fit in my scanner o__o

Done on illustration board with india ink, pencil crayons, watercolors, and a bit of acrylic.


Oh and one more thing! I really don't want to debate this, if you smoke, fine, if you don't, good--I really couldn't care less!

I love it
I cannot help but thinking about Hamlet. first because of him holding a skull
but also because of him not taking actions
and when he does he only reacts and not acts.

This picture is worth a thousand words! ^.^ When I first saw this, I thought you did for an English class or something because this image remind me of Hamlet, where Hamlet talked to a skull. "To be or not to be..." Again, nice texture, especially the skull.

So clever, I love it. What's the chances we could do a trade for a print of this (like, 2-3 of anything on my gallery for a copy of action/reaction) ? Just a thought....

Maybe I'm not sure If I could or not, the image is at a real low rez o__o but if you don't mind a small print of it I couls prolly mail it to ya! n_n

Can it be done to 8x10? If not, maybe 4x5, or 4x6 with a blank spot for your signature at the bottom? And what do you want in exchange? If there's any (photographic) themes/subjects that you don't see in my gallery, lemme know and I'll see if I have it amongst my never-ending archives. Any 2 or 3 8x10's, or however many smaller prints you want....

Msg me when you see what you want & we'll trade contact info from there...

Alas poor Yorick I knew him Horatio.

Nice composition, well executed. Would make for an interesting scene in a Hamlet Movie, during that famous solilquey. I likes it.
