More Awesome Carlson Paintings

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for another Carlson post! I hope you guys are ready for some trippy works. Now, let’s go on a wild and awesome journey!

  • Dark Rainbow Kingdom by Larry Carlson Archival pigment print on metallic paper 

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a nighttime piece that’s covered in a beautiful purple haze. There’s also hundreds of eyes radiating with rainbow energy. To the left of the eyes are some infrared women with bizarre heads. They appear to be stacked on top of one another, like some sort of grotesque tower. The “rainbow part” of the piece deals with the titular color scheme that seems to eclipse all of it. I absolutely adore this work, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson 2015 

This is another fantastic work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor piece that has all of the great painter’s charm as you could guess. It’s filled with geometric shapes, neon trees, and a mandala-like sun. The most awesome part of the piece, however, is the central tree. This particular tree is an explosion of color, and it looks like an alien being. I love the trippiness of the work, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

More Awesome Stands

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!!

Hello fellow Jojo fans! It’s time for another Stand post. I hope you guys are ready for some awesome powers. Now, strike a pose, and let’s begin!

  • Bohemian Rhapsody Stand User: Ungalo (Part 6: Stone Ocean) Type: Automatic Stand Appearance: N/A (A phenomenon) Powers/Abilities: Fiction Realization  (This extremely powerful ability allows the user to bring fictional characters to life. It’s only limited by the user’s imagination. The only way to stop this is to create a character of your own that can destroy the others). This was one of the most bizarre and overpowered Stands every created. I love the idea behind this, and I can think of multiple ways to torment opponents with it.

  • Soft & Wet Stand User: Josuke Higashikata (Part 8: Jojolion) Appearance: A humanoid, robot-like creature with a 5-pointed star on its head, an anchor-like plate on its stomach, dark eyes, and a purplish-white body. Type: Close-range, evolved, and shared. Powers/Abilities: Bubble Generation (The stand generates soap bubbles that can carry things or pop, doing damage to a chosen target). Plunder (The signature ability of this stand is to “steal” something from an object for its own use. This can be anything from sight to sound). Absorption (When the original Stand user, Josefumi, had the Stand, it could produce bubble that could take on the aspect of an object). Soft & Wet is one of my absolute favorite Stands. I love the various ways that Josuke uses it, and it has an extremely cool design.

Disturbing Content Ahead!

Hello boils and ghouls! It’s that haunting time of year again! Since Halloween is just around the corner, it’s time for some disturbing art. Now, let’s begin this harrowing journey into your deepest fears! Mwahahahah!

  • Night Creeper by Zdzislaw Beksinski Date Made: Unknown 

This is a disturbing, yet awesome work by “Polish Surrealist”, Beksinski. It takes place in a dystopian apocalyptic future with burning buildings, and smoldering bodies. The whole atmosphere is extremely foreboding, and to make matters worse, there’s a bandaged, multi-legged, abomination that appears to be running at something. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Grave Goods by Jeff Christensen Oil on Canvas

This is an awesomely dark work by “American Artist”, Christensen. It’s a nighttime piece that gives off many instances of “Memento Mori” The main characters of the work are all unsettling entities with garish jewelry. There’s a huge skeleton in the center of the work, and it appears to be surrounded by sharp-toothed cult members. In conclusion this is a very uniquely scary paining that is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Awesome Stands In Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

WARNING! MASSIVE JOJO SPOILERS AHEAD!

Hello fellow viewers, and welcome to a brand new topic. I just recently finished all 8 parts of the manga, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and it was a hell of a ride. Araki Hirohiko’s magnificent story and characters grab the viewer from the very beginning and take them for a wild ride. One of the most prominent things in the series is introduced in part 3, The Stardust Crusaders. We learn about Stands (Physical manifestations of one’s life-force that only people with other Stands can see. They are all uniquely shaped, and have a massive variety of powers. They can be acquired by natural means, or may be given to someone via a special arrow or corpse. Some can be controlled automatically, while others can be controlled manually. Many are named after famous bands due to Araki’s love of American music. Since they are a manifestation of one’s life-force, any damage dealt to the form, will also hurt the user. If the user dies, the Stand usually disappears along with them. Now, with the explanation out of the way, let’s begin!

  • Metallica Stand User: Risotto Nero (Part 5 Vento Aureo) Close Range and Colony Appearance: Small metal creatures with stitches and looks of horror. Abilities: Invisibility (They live in Risotto’s bloodstream, and they use particles  to help him blend into the background). Metal Manipulation (This highly dangerous ability allows Risotto to manipulate iron in the atmosphere from the air and ground with a range of up to 5 to 10 meters. It can repair his organs by stitching them up. He can also use the iron in other people’s blood as well. If this is the case, he will usually transform the iron into sharp objects, like razor blades or nails, to effectively rip the person’s body from the inside out.  In conclusion, this is one devastatingly crazy ability that shows the ferocity of La Squadra Esecuzioni’s leader.

  • Beach Boy Stand User: Pesci (Part 5 Vento Aureo) Appearance: A silver fishing rod with an unsettling skull on the reel. Type: Close-range Abilities: Hook and Sink (The main purpose of this Stand is to phase its line through anything, human or otherwise. When the target is ensnared, the user will reel it in, like a fisherman. The hook can rip a person’s body apart if it snags an important organ). Damage Reflection (Anyone attacking the string of the rod will have the attack reflected at them. The string is essentially invulnerable to being destroyed by conventional means). Extreme Line Sensibility (The line transfers all of the information that the user needs to take town its opponent). Conclusion: This is a very cool Stand that Pesci uses to awesome effect.

More Awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Hello fellow duelists! It’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Leotaur Type: Beast-Warrior/Effect Attribute: Earth 4 Stars Appearance: A fearsome lion-beast hybrid with a large sword. ATK: 1500 DEF: 1600  Effect: If this card battles a non-Normal Monster, this card gains 500 ATK during the Damage Step only.

This card can be absolutely brutal in some decks that are filled with Effect Monsters. Having a 2000 ATK beat stick that can easily be used is always a good thing.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Art Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some great works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Centro Tree by Larry Carlson Archival pigment print on metallic paper

This is a fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor scene with a very colorful and trippy sky. The background is also filled with fiery trees, psychedelic mushrooms, and multi-headed creatures. We also have a mysterious lake that’s covered in mandalas. In conclusion, this is  uniquely awesome work that still fascinates me to this day.

  • The Clearing by Rene Magritte 1944 oil on canvas 

This is a beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Rene Magritte. It’s another outdoor piece with many gorgeous colors. It appears to be the middle of the day, and the sky is a milky blue. There’s also various birds surrounding the area, and, for some reason, a large baguette. It almost looks like the remains of a picnic, and this bizarre object brings the humor of the work together. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
