Is there any reason why you use random photos to create your art?

They always look awesome even if it doesn't make sense to me :)

for all those who don't understand... you would have to watch how he creates his work. Watch one of his tutorial vids, then you will understand. He has this really cool work flow where he starts with an image, then starts morphing it, cutting it up, moving it around, paining on top of it, then more morphing etc. The goal is to be random and create "happy accidents" (as Bob Ross used to say)... then you can slowly find shapes and images within the chaos that you can develop further. When he starts, he doesn't know what he's going to paint. What a free way to paint, I love it. There are a few other artists that do a similar approach such as Andrew (Android) Jones, Tarrzan [link] etc. and I'm giving it a shot too! [link]

It's a great way to draw. It's not limited to photoshop either. It's a lot like surrealist automatic drawing where you let your pencil move where ever it wants, and eventually you'll start to see familiar shapes emerge. Then you can start to flesh them out. It's nothing new. The chimp is just a way of getting a feel for what the colours/tones will be later on. :D

a note on this, the colorpalette int the result doesn't have to correspond to the start footage, but in this case it did :)

Ah yeah, it just seems likely it would. At least the basic tones/values anyway.

Lolz...somehow I fail to see the connection between the monkey and the russian sniper...but...I just got back from work and haven't had my pills or my dinner yet (tomatoe soup and bread) so that might be why I didn't get that one! :XD:

Well, i think the thing is to not have a plan at first.
Just paint generic shapes and what comes to your mind..... play around!! =)
