Space Queen by tonio48 Space Queen by tonio48
Eurasian female heat made with a block of polystyrene ,1m x 0'7m. Covered with around 17,500 shinning thumbtacks, 9mm x 9mm each... I used forks for the eyelash, this detail shown the scale of this piece. It took about 50 days of hard work.

Eso me pasa también a mí con algunas de mis obras, que me da pena desprenderme de ellas.

Sorry about this, but I couldn't help myself...

Person #1 It appears this person,who had a rather cheap suit rented out, died via multiple blows to the head with this thumbtack statue.

CSI guy[I FORGOT HIS NAME.] : Well it appears, he died...*puts on sunglasses*
.....a rather Tacky death.
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

Ah, that. You see, I made this account to track one of my friends, which then went and deactviated. So after that, I just joined as a Member who critizes[I am actually a member of Stormartists, artist wise.] the people who want it, via the comment system, and other means. Also, I'm a troll.

Thanks for your quick response. I'm really amazed. Your work seems manifold to me, and that's what I like about it. Most artists seem to stick to just one style of their art, always doing similar things. Your gallery isn't like that. Thumbs up!

You touched the point !... Most of ppl tell me 'but what is your style?' Than I must answer... my style is the style fitting each specific piece...as each one is an entire different thought! Anyway, I hate to repeat myself as a robot so....
