The making of my entry in the 2005 Master and Servant CG society contest
This piece was my entry for the 2005`s CG Society Master and Servant Contest - I was the 5th Runner up in the 2D category and the final piece was published in the Ballistic`s Painter Book with an Honor Mention and was featured in the splash screen of Corel Painter X software, and is part of the CG Choice gallery since then. 
My first idea came from the very thight situation, almost a "master and slave" kind of relationship between an artist and his own work and creations, feeling chained to his ideas, deadlines, desires and vices (including and unhealthy life style). Pretty much I was toying with a meta-language situation here. 
I was very happy to participate among great artists like Bob Chiu, Goro Fujita, Matt Dixon and Kekai Kotaki
