Beautifully weighted image... how it channels out into more detail so intricately, the way it gains more form and then sublimely fades away again.
The dots to the bottom do slightly detract from the overall effect I described at the top, but the forms really do outweigh that sligh negative point.
The symmetry just seems to work in this image and further enhances the weighting of it. I think that the texturing in the background is a nice platform to build the forms onto, but maybe the ink / blood spots are too large, they take from the intricacy of the wispy, crawling lines.
Colourwise, the selection is excellent, deep brooding reads with the balcks and grubby, cream colour is surprisingly refreshing, in a way that is slightly itchy to the eyes. But I like it.
How the black lines at the top perfectly encase the "UTEP" typography is another sublime touch that finishes of the image, gives it that extra class. I also love how it is the only thing not symmetrical over the whole workspace, it really does cleanly break up the symmetry, that would normally just deserve a quick glance, but when combined with all described above is an excellent touch.
