Interesting, very different from what you've been doing. It kind of reminds me of your beginning in a way...well not YOURS, but your creative images! And I do see a bird in there, kind of a penguin maybe because he is standing, you see a wing, his chest, his head, an eye and a small off beak. Do you see him?
I think it's the solid efx that windows 8 (tiles, etc. ) has or at least that's how it seems to me so in effect I'm influenced by win 8 and it does feel like I'm taking a new direction! This wall looks OK on my desktop and I'm still using Vista! Now you point him out, I can see him bottom/left!
