the world of SCALA

Art by Romik Safarian / 39 Comments

5:50 am.. Finally finished.. sins to virtues, 4 vs 4,
first tree to the black tree, flood of life to the axiom of God..
two souls entwined with no familiarity of the world around.

    This is absolutely amazing! The details that you put into each drawing is awesome. I love how wherever the eye looks, it will find something intriguing to look at!

    I really appreciate the way your eye runs freely and not constrained to space and how you were able to capture that and still make it a complete piece. I also appreciate that you were able to work all the many elements into it without hiding the importance of any of them. You used all of the space...which I loveee.. I can see that you love what you do and this stuff just pours out of you.

    I think its sick. I really like how all the elements are different in their own way, yet still look like one. Great detail. Its tells a story, but the best part I feel is it can be whatever story you want it to be. Nice work young man,

    Was checking out some of your influences, I'm a big fan of that era and it's nice to see you've kept with the patterns.. The spacing, detail... religious overtones. Those are big shoes to fill... While I'm not yet convinced you surpassed them. I will say you certainly found a voice. I do like Scala... Can not wait to see what you do next.

    So i will say this at the second one, you are the most brilliant creature i have ever had the pleasure of crossing paths with. Your art makes me want to paint, even though I dont know how, inspires me to write when nothing is left to be written question things I never gave a second thought too and to quit smoking so I can live a lifetime once and over again to see more of your work, :) thank you for sharing

    You have taken me back to the roots, when the genesis of creativity first filled my veins with passion, and genius. The detail and overall composition is a captivating, it's sensual eye candy and speaks to the artist within me.

    You have taken the inspiration of Yoshitaka Amano fantasy works and Albrecht Durer's famous engraving Knight, Death and the Devil and created a visual fairy tale one with the aged old tale of dark and light.

    Incredible you have influenced me yet again.

    there is so much in this work that makes me rethink what I've been doing when I draw, this piece inspires me to try and throw off the shackles of my conformity and attempt something completely different. using ink as your medium works brilliantly and gives it an even more refined touch to the image.

    I would like you to come up with an inspirational phrase and a brief sentence about said phrase, because I would like that placed underneath this artwork and then I would like the print hung behind the desk in my office.

    I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    I'm late to the site and I cant believe The damage done. I'm starting here with Scala, Rome when will you get noticed! Scala has taken hours away from me and it wants more! Your crazy, crazy, CRAZY!! This is your big bang theory. This is the days before the continetal drift, before the sea level change. I'm tracing the astronomical legacies of the Babylonians and saw Scala! Your a maniac :)

    So far, this is one of the best amazing paintings that I've ever seen in this blog. It's definitely crazy for me, and I think you really deserve to be a future great artist in the internet. If this has some nice colors, it would be more attractive than ever.
