Winter Mix 2008-2009 Images

It happens that every once in awhile, I have to decide between two different versions of a series. I tend to decide in favor of the later version, since after all, I've put more time into it, so it must be better... In a few cases, I've realized later that I had made the wrong decision, and that the earlier version was superior. This is one such case. I had created these wonderful biomorphs in ArtMatic and filtered them in Photoshop to create a stark black and white series of organisms. Instead of stopping there, I decided they looked like they were reef creatures and created a coral reef background for them. In retrospect, the originals are much more graphic, so I present them here.

Related to these is the image used for Robert's Birthday 2007.
