Eye Control My Destiny by BlakkReign Eye Control My Destiny by BlakkReign

Entered this piece into the Art Institute Online Scholarship Competition on deviantART as well as the Official website.
Applicants are required to write a 500-word-or-less essay on "How would you live your creative career" I thought I would share my essay with you deviants.

How would I live my creative career?

For many years I've loved creating art, something I honestly enjoy. The opportunity to have an art career is overwhelming.
First thing is first, the education I need for my creative career to get me started in the right direction.
I would like to live my career with confidence, so that my job will have a purpose to the challenge.
I want to be happy with my creative career, along with the confidence. Having a job that you will enjoy doing everyday, is something I've never experienced. I know that I would be happy having a creative career, because creating art makes me happy.
I want to experience the joy, the joy of completing a deadline with the confidence of knowing it's finished.
I love learning new things, and I can learn things quickly.
I know I am what a company is looking for, and with the right education, I believe they will find me.
I've came along way from starting to draw at a young age, and some years later I feel compelled to learn digital art, mostly photomanipulation.
I want to live my creative career, happy. So that I may be able to enjoy life as well.
Thats how I would live my creative career.

(204 words, oh well)

I chose this piece, really because of the title "I Control My Destiny." I feel the title stands out, just as the art itself does. I mixed alot of meanings into this piece. So no matter how bizarre it may seem, let the title be your guide.

Cool. I love the surrealism, like one idea melting away into another.

Finally someone who sees the hidden message I placed into the image, however there is more to the hidden message.

Incredible. I love what you did with the overall tone, and bringing out the eye. There seems to be an added mystery behind the stairs to the building (chapel).
