Irodori by ARTificialphanTOM Irodori by ARTificialphanTOM
Created on sumopaint and ipiccy.

Irodori means assortment of colors in japanese. Sometimes things are not as simple as black and white as symbolized by the duality of yin/yang.

Yay, new Japanese word to remember.

I haven't seen a yin/yang type of image like this before, so I think it's pretty eye catching and interesting.

The gradiant textures really add something new/fresh to the bleak black and white colours of the Yin and Yang symbol. Very impressive!

Hello there! I think this one has to be my favorite out fo the things you shared with me :)
Doing any sort of critique for "non-objective" type drawings is hard for me since I don't do abstract/non-objective.
However I feel that part of the reason, is usually because I don't understand the concept--this one however speaks very clearly, and is executed well.
Design wise it correlates to the concept clearly.
Its very pretty :) good job.

Thanks. I started out just doing traditional pencil drawings but have drifted into more undefined work. This was one of those occasions when an idea just came to me and I was able to create it quickly.

Thanks. The ancient chinese philosophers might not be very happy with me but I kind of like it too.

Kind of afraid to touch the whole swastika thing; I have 50% german heritage and it might be misinterpreted. The om might be fun to play with though.

I'll have to look into it to see if I can make something out of it. With a proper description attached even the idiots should figure it out.

Now this symbol  is cool, I like the appearance itself a lot!
I wonder if it's better to perceive the world as black and white or in many tones as it is..
It's a lot simpler one way but not necessarily better...

Thanks. I got the idea from a Kodo (Taiko Drummers) song called Irodori. Taoism promotes looking above the duality to see things as one but I thought it would be cool to go the other direction.

Interesting, I could take either of those 3 beliefs for my own really. But it's all so relative o_o
