So I'm working on a piece and the composition/perspective is giving me a hard time. And then I seen this painting by Mihaly Munkacsy and my head exploded.
..
Maybe I don't have it too tough after all...haha.

Makes me feel pretty insignificant. Both the point of view and the technical ability...

Yeah. I don't know if a piece of art ever made me feel the way this one does. It's like the Avatar of paintings. It sucked me into the image. My head can't comprehend it's a flat image, it seems so 3d. The way space and depth are played with, I feel like the angels are going to land on my head. AND created 100 years ago. Geeeeez...
