feel free to download for wallpaper... its 1920X1200 resolution... :)

corrected stock links so that you people who dont understand how to navigate Deviant Art, can go there... but then if you cannot navigate deviant art, then your obviously not a member, therefore you wont be able to view the images, cause they are nude... anyway, they are there...

I wanted to add....I don't believe that our souls are made up entirely of our emotions, or trials and tribulations - these things only help our souls to grow. I believe a soul is a spirit, manifested within each of our cocoons, made up of colors so beautiful, they make our bodies seem like the dead skins of a we shed them, and step into the light.

This one was done this morning before my medication.... usually I wouldn't explain what's going on in my mind, only to a therapist, but this time I'll make an exception. Our Semi-Hero birdman sees and hears the souls of the asylum inmates, he wears his glasses to fog the sights and bangs his symbols to dampen the sound. As the nightwatchman gets near the reflections on the wall and floor disappear and there are no sounds (except birdman banging his symbols). Our Semi-hero Birdman will probably just get a beating and sent to bed. (By the way this is a simple cut, paste, distort, opacity montage) I'm just learning photoshop!
