i like

Very cool image! Sometimes it feels like our planet is that crowded with stuff!

this is some AMAZING work. i absolutely love this.

This is SuperFantastic!!!!

Excellent work. Art that is NOT thought-provoking is brain pablum. Unfortunately, some brains are not equipped to realize that, and they simply are deep-thought-intolerant.

OK, I get it -- good point

I like this view and the art is amazing as well as dramatic, although the concept does not really hit home for me, the ideas are fresh and interesting to say the's bold and exciting

Wonderful work worthy of serious consideration. Perhaps the artistic vision of many Westerner's is not yet broad enough to appreciate what you have created and the historical forces behind it.

It resembles a post-apopalyptic traditional Tibetan Buddhist Mandala with the closed sphere dominating the center of the page. Too me it is very sad but to Mara and the other inhabitants of three lower realms it would not be frightening but just cyclical.

It utilizes a traditional palette of muted and harmonious colors that are typically found in Japanese woodcuts and watercolors. It is very precise with a great mastery of craft and precise use of pastel colors. The artist visions of many individuals in the Western audience that you reach may not be sophisticated enough to appreciate your works. Kudos. The inane remarks with their sloppiness of language and thought only confirm your vision. Thanks for sharing. Best in your career.
