    Hi Bertrude....Very interesting, I don't think its nonsensical at all, looks almost as if its a floating apparition of the sentinel that once stood guard there, but still conveying a 'you've been warned' message to all that have ventured there....
    Cool...spooky, I like it!
    Take care,
    Steve

    Very cool! The two black holes with different colour flames makes me think if there's a deeper meaning to it

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    Thank you all for your kind comments.

    It was partially inspired by the look of the Imperial Guards in Return of the Jedi so you're not too far off Andrea

    I'm not familiar with 'Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water' but am quite partial to a bit of Anime now and then, so I'll try and check it out. How can I not when the villain has an outfit like that.

    Anime is such a madcap adventure. Some is super brilliant. But for me when watching anything, it's gotta have a good story. Some of them are pretty amazing with their art quality. And if the story's good, I love it. I came in late to it though. It's not really my generation's art form. I think it started catching on with personal computing and the internet.

    I've tried, and I'm afraid there are certain things that have to happen to make it watchable. I saw a few good ones in a row, and thus inspired that I hit a gold mine, I unfortunately threw down my hard earned money and bought packaged collection of the show Lain, and maaaaaaaaaannnnnn is it slooooooooowwwwwww. Probably is a great pairing with heroin.

    If what I wound up buying were streamlined and edited down to make it peppy, wow. Thing is it's a brilliant concept that must have been done on a really tight budget or by just a few people. They set a cool mood. Awesome premise. I think the show may have been designed for office workers who have to get work done and only occasionally look over to a little screen they have secretly playing so the boss doesn't catch them distracting to see if anything happened. Sheeeeesh!

    But on the flip side of that, Anime as a genre has proven to be really free and can get away with any concept and the more fantastic the better. And that's a breath of fresh air. Just wish I knew which ones were worth watching. I loved Miyasaki. A genius. Please clone him.

    Sorry for the digression. . .
