Centable by glassdrum Centable by glassdrum
Half Man / Half Table

a.k.a. Table Boy

Here's an early sketch of this photo: [link]


Note:
The manipulation done in this photograph is so minor and could have easily been done in a darkroom. So, I didn’t think it warranted being put in the photo-manipulation category. Smiles.

8-17-2007: Just uploaded a little bit of a higher quality version.

It would've been cool if his legs were at the end of the table.. like.. a tableman! :D

But still, this is an awesome picture. Great gallery!

I thought about doing that at one point, but I enjoy the little shoes that the table has.

Just basically cutting and pasting. Background + background with guy + background with table.

Man, I laughed so hard checking out your gallery, and I have to say that this and "man going down stairs" are some of my all time DA favorites. Thank you!

I have fave'd this, and featured it in my journal, alongside 43 other standout pieces I also posted a news article at [link]

I want to support art that I am moved by, and this is no exception. Please stop by and support the other artists, and comment on any of my art that may move you.

Sincerely be17aiah.

I keep slacking off.
but the more I slack off.. the more the series evolves. So it should be even better when it's done.

That doesnt make much sense.

Well - I guess it means your mind is expanding the series without you actually finalising anything. You'd better make some notes - don't want you to forget a crucial piece! :)
