The Taming of the Shroom by Simanion The Taming of the Shroom by Simanion
I don't eat mushrooms (unless theyre chopped up into tiny bits and are part of a sauce, or are a "special" breed..) because they kind of taste like dirt, and either feel like I'm sucking on eyeballs or a chunk of dolphin. But how fricken cool do they look!

I used Artline felt tip pens, "Chaos Black" Warhammer paint :D, a bit of white paint here and there, lots of water.

Hope you like :brazensix:

OH! umm..this may be impossible but if you want you can try and find my name (Simon) written in there somewhere. I think the 'S' is pretty easy to see, but then again I know where it is :D

How funny. I like mushrooms, love butterflies, luxuriate in abstract art, and am drawn to black and white. It's like this was custom made for me. Heh.

I love how you used the intricate details to press dimension into the picture. This is definitely a work I can learn from also. Now I'm off to collect it! Thanks for sharing.

Mm..

I'm seeing lots of S-ish looking squiggles around 8|. 'Specially at the bottom..
So I personally abort this finding-your-name challenge xD.

Awesome. Lmao xD I hold that EXACT same perspective on shrooms, myself xD.
Cool lookin mofo's those things are :).

A chunk of dolphin, eh?...
well that actually DOES accurately describe how it feels like.

And the criss-crossing...it reminds me of brett helquist. :>

And mushrooms are cool. I do not know what nutrients I get from an organism that sucks on rotting things, but hey...any day I get to experience munching on a chunk of dolphin or sucking on an eyeball, I'm a particularly happy person.

I really like this one it just all seems to fit together. You must have alot of patience to do these. I also think mushrooms don't taste great, do they even any nutrional value?

This is so cool! And I feel exactly the same way about mushrooms... they definitely taste like dirt! but every time I say it, people look at me as if I was crazy.

I don't know about the dolphin chunk though, I've never had any before :D
