Inspired by the Ender's Quartet, a series of books by Orson Scott Card, I originally sketched and colored this portal, originally a wormhole, with Technical Pencils (Type H and Type 5H) and Gouache. I then scanned the piece into my computer and enhanced it using Photoshop and added a more pronounced ripple effect. I have the original on my computer; I may post it at a later time. This is a favorite of mine for its simplicity and complexity all in one. If you don't understand what I mean, that's okay, it's a very surrealist idea which I am working with in my mind that may be confusing to others. After developing it thoroughly, I decided that it represented the Ripple of Time that the every day person experiences, the bright central star as the consciousness and the darkness the subconscious. Anyways, think about it and maybe you'll see what I mean.
