Crystal portrait artwork

20 posts in this topic

I have recently discovered a new hobby which is fun and can inspire original art. The process is very simple : I just take a good sized crystal (mine is quartz) and use my cell phone to take pictures. The pictures are a mix of intuitive snapping with my eyes closed, or seeking out the images. Both work extremely well. The images appear on the outside of the crystal, or deep inside. 

I then decided to start drawing what I see, because others were struggling to see the images. I am only sharing images that I consider to be uncanny and unexplainable.  

Do you see what I see, or something else?

@Random witch @Random witch I'll try again ?

I call it Heartbeat of Creation, and as you can see, it appears as if a 'big bang' is emanating from a person's chest. They seem very happy about it too?? in truth it is my own reflection, but this entire shot is very really and completely with random camera shots. 

Also, notice a bulldog in the sand above the crystal? That's an added bonus?

Where I sit to use my PC, the roof is made up of green fiber sheets. Those have lots of wrinkles, dirt and what not in them. So I sometimes just look up and stare at it, and I can see so many different images in it. Most simple to most complex images. Amazing. Same with a dirty floor, etc.

@Swarnim yes, it's really cool. Marbled tile has great images. And wood grain. What I find fascinating is that those type of images are static and will always be there when you look again. But I have never captured the same image twice with the crystal

I don´t see a mouse. I see a hedgehog lieing on his belly, raising his head and awkwardly looking at the world with his weirdly big eye.

I see three hedgehog's head? what you see as his nose, is part of my mouse's ear

@Random witch  @Swarnim  @Hulia

I'm rather speechless with this... I drew this exactly from the crystal. The only thing I added was the stars background...  

Also, I thought some @Nahm-like form might appreciate.

 

The crystal (according to 'these eyes') depicts a safe transferring perspective to a dream bunny in the forest.

The negatives are titled "How the Pyramids Were Built" 

And the positive, "Dreams End as They Begin, in Love"

  The first is called "Shapeshifter"  can you make out all the many faces and forms? 

The second, "Just Sit", depicts a person sitting at the mouth of a cave.
