I started this piece out by simply doing a neapolitan like design, with raspberry, green, black and yellow, in tiers of course. Then I started messing around with knives, blending tier to tier, shade to shade. Eventually I came to this idea, where it's like the sections of the earth's crust, which do blend in with each other, as holes and loosening up of the sections do occur. Finally I decided to start changing the color scheme around. Until I finally got to this, as you see it now, where I'm envision some form of crustaceous underbelly of an alien world, where the sky is a violet haze, chaos in the middle ground- kind of took the middle area idea from Norse myth, just to note, and the bottom level, is the most confusing of them all as it's almost pure darkness, and of course, all things are possible, good or evil under the veil of shadow, where imagination and reality can really affect whatever it encounters. So anyhow, that's the process and backstory to this piece.
