Marvelous. Time to take my Russian language book off the shelf...

Interesting. I am rather impressed with the technical ability required to produce these, but not particularly pleased by the aesthetic results.

Perhaps my perception may improve given some time and a repeated viewing later.

Certainly linkworthy. Good find.

Ynoxas - exactly how I felt: the idea is great, the method of interest but the results are disappointing.

Maybe the artist simply put too much "wobble" (that's a technical term there) into the pictures; there seems to be too much going on on a micro-level that takes away from the greater image; the small distortions alienate and remove much of the pretence of reality that the scenes really need.

But, yeah ... good find.

These are eerily beautiful, like the kind of buildings I see in my dreams. I almost wish she/he hadn't added the giant people, it reminds me of that Rolling Stones video where they're all Godzilla-sized on the streets of New York.

It looks like someone went a little overboard on the smudge tool, but the results do look very Gaudi to me.
