Beautiful!!!  On my desktop! ... I'm reading a book titled "A Constellation of vital Phenomena"... a passage from it... "Life: a constellation of vital phenomena--organization, irritability, movement, growth, reproduction, adaptation."  Your artwork brought that to mind.

And I believe that Roger Dean did not get the credit, the judge threw out his suit.  But here is my thinking, everyone draws inspiration from others.  Some actually do something with that inspiration, others don't.  I looked at his artwork, and yes it is beautiful, intriguing.... but is he really the very first to have *drawn/painted* all that he said he did? I'm sure he was inspired/influenced by others...unless he lived as a hermit.  Just my opinion, sorry!!

Thankyou teddy,neone,Sed.I didn't know he took them to court.But I do understand where you are coming from teddy.Yes,I believe that too.We are all bound to be influenced by others and our surrounds,whether we want to be or not,Nothing is truely original,we create our own version,be it visual art,text or noise, via our voice or a contaption like a drum.What maybe noise to one can be beautiful music to another.I'm not a hippop fan,but that doesnt make it bad.But back to Roger.Hes work would have to be where I first saw anything like floating islands.He may not of been the first or originator of that concept,but until the internet arrived I hadn't seen anything like it.When someone uses someone elses ideas and knows they are,are blatently copying.And then when they say its their own and they use it to make money,thats not right.I'm influenced by lots of other artists and I'm sure I steal things from them subconsciously,but I wouldnt consciusly steal someone elses idea and call it my own.I couldnt live with that.Sorry about the ramble,think I may have digressed a little.Anyway glad you like my creation. ..................

ahab, oh my gosh, I wasn't accusing you of stealing anything!  I agree when there is outright stealing of artwork or anything, and then also using for profit,, self gain, etc. that is totally wrong.  And I just thought of something I made in 2007.... I don't think it is here at WC...  http://teddybearcholla.deviantart.com/art/Sky-Island-52402639 .... and I'm sure I was influenced by something/someone.

Your right Sed.  I wasnt talking about myself, but Roger Dean.I remember when I first saw the Movie and those scenes where they were flying around the planet and those islands appeared. Straight away, I thought of Roger.So I stayed to see if hes name appeared in the credits.Don't rememder seeing his name,but with all the people involved with that movie,I could have missed it.Anyway,glad you liked Sed.Sorry teddy,I didnt think you meant to accuse me of anything .Glad you like my work.Thankyou all..........
