With the coloring of the clouds and sky, it looks like wallpaper with this mystical tornado coming swirling out of it - You sir, have a great talent!

Not sure what happened above...ah well!

I was saying that this is just a fantastic drawing! You sir have some serious talent on your hands. It's great to see some more Canadian talent on IFL. Thanks for sharing!

I'm astounded. This is a great piece. The only thing I see about it that bothers me (and very little) is a white "U" shape on the right side seems a little out of place. I can't draw for the life of me, so this is really impressive to me.

Wow! You really have got talent. Wish I could draw like that. You should post more of these! :)

Not really my kind of thing, but this is a very nice piece. And hand drawn? That's just sick.

It's interesting that an image with such a dark tone can make such a forceful statement. At first glance I was a bit intimidated. I can picture a Frank Franzetta character riding into the scene to do battle with the Wind Devil--the outcome uncertain!

it would be nice to see this work relitive to something to get a grasp of the size!, what media did you use, my sister an art major, worked heavily in prisma (spelling) pencils. Here work was colorful like your but sadly she truly lacks your talent.

Not a photo-manipulation? That´s so damn obvious photo-manipulation as photo-manipulation can be. Anyone with experience with photoshop clearly sees the stock photos that have been used to make this. Claiming this fully hand drawn is just ridiculous.

Not that this wouldn't be a nice wallpaper, I just hate people who claim something as hand drawn which in reality is obvious photo-manipulation.

my apologies especially for the guy who asked me which medium I used... I didn't mean physically hand drawn I meant drawn from scratch in Photoshop.

Its not photo manipulated though its a remake of another peice that I also made, link: http://www.jerrylow.com/_pview.php?c=p_wallpaper&n=14

Once again I am sorry for using the word hand drawn. -1 for myself

Great stuff, but I was going to ask what you meant by "hand drawn" as I recognize some Photoshop effects here. No matter! Making a dark image pop is not easy no matter what the tools, and you do it handily. Really nice work, orion, keep 'em coming.

I've been here a while but signed up just to comment on this. It's simply amazing. I also like a lot of the other stuff on your website and would love to get full resolution wallpapers of some. Is there a place I can download 1920x1200 res images of some of the work from your site?

Keep up the great work!

it's a nice wallpaper and the creator has some good skills.

but in general, for me, the quality of interfacelift is getting worse and worse! I've checked this site for a long time now. I used to come back here for it's beautiful wallpapers, which were made by good photographers. now all i see is blown out, oversaturated HDR photos and totally unrealistic photoshopped images. not that they aren't good, but were is the simple photography art?! or am i at the wrong address for this?

Djozz, I certainly do not want to start a flame war. Things got nasty a while back and IFL suspended this forum. Having said that, I think your comments have merit. Not to sound pedantic but styles and tastes do change. Hopefully they are cyclical and in time will return to what you cherish most. Are there absolute standards of beauty, truth and photographic excellence? Go ask Plato. Today we must live with data-reduced audio and video. Moreover, in audio dynamic range has been thrown to the wayside for the sake of loudness. From what I've thus far seen, HDR produces similar results when overused in photography. Could you imagine watching a movie filmed in HDR--headache city! Hold tightly to your principles. Hopefully IFL will hold tightly to its with an ever-opened eye to quality and virtuosity. Now, move a little bit to the left. lower your chin and say cheese. Got it; thank you.

Yes, I'm going to have to say there are absolute standards of beauty. Go ask Kant. ;)

Also -- and I mean no offense -- I think this piece still qualifies as photo-manipulation, on account of photos having been used in its creation (i.e: the clouds).

Good job! Nice composition, dramatic color scheme. But the believability suffers due to the multiple duplications of clouds.

No words. If I was your teacher at school, A+ or 10.0 for sure. ;-)

Wow, this pic brought a lot of commentators out of the woodwork. Nice to have the participation. I was wondering where some of you went. Good to know you're still around.

This is the first time I'm seeing a hand drawn picture on Ifl. Very good effort. Cheers.

Simply beautiful. I cannot wait to see what else you will be sharing with us.

Very nice. I was going to say, if this were "hand drawn", I wouldn't expect you to be posting it here on IFL. More likely, you would be quite famous in the art world and displaying it in an exhibition somewhere.

Ok I'm not sure what I have caused here but seems to be a lot of tension and arguments. I want to clarify a few things of course. I don't know what HDR is as I just ordered my LX3 and have not taken any courses in photography at all but hopefully I will in time.

I'm not a famous artist and not that established but I am quite versed in digital arts and web designs.

I have had a long gap in the drawing community as shown

Not sure if this would help anything but here's the layer breakdown

i wouldn't call it finished, but it certainly looks like you've put work into it.

the duplicated clouds make it look cheesy, and it's obvious that it's the only thing in the photo that you didn't actually do. the buildings look like obvious black rectangles and could use some work as well. keep it up

Stunning piece, though it seems a lot darker after recent events.

I think it's kinda wierd. Not your typical weather phenomenon. But hey, it's a heck of a lot better than I could do!

Awesome illustration! I love the light reflecting off of the tornado, nice imagination you have!

I recently found an app that changes my background wallpaper based on the current weather, and I've spent the past hour replacing the default, low-res pictures with wallpapers from IFL. When I first saw the default "tornado" pic, I was about to give up because—come on—why the hell would I care how my wallpaper looks during a tornado? Now that I've seen this work of art, I'm actually kind of hoping for a tornado!
