Just incredible, my second DD, I'm over the moon. Massive thanks to `LabyrinthCreations for the feature and to ^JZino and `phoenixleo for the suggestion. I'm honored to have two insanely talented artists promoting my work.

For some of the most beautiful body art I've ever seen, check out ^JZino's excellent gallery

and for some amazing digital photo manipulation, check out `phoenixleo

Humming bird by ~SeanAvery "That hummingbird is made entirely from CD fragments...I thought it was a 3D render when I saw the thumbnail!" "...I was surprised to see that it was made of CD fragments arranged by size and colour to make sculpture! A stunning portrayal of a humming bird in action that looks realistic with the CD fragments creating the bright plumage of the bird. Do check out this deviant's beautiful gallery of beautiful works!"

Hi, Sean, what do you use to cut the Cd's? I've tried with scissors and the crackle. Thank you. Stephanie

Hi Stephanie, I just use kitchen scissors to cut the CDs. Some CDs will flake and crack, but others won't. You just have to find the right ones! =)

The only way to make it work is to cut them up into a billion pieces. =)

if you cut the sculpture in half, and attached it to a wall-mounted print, I would buy this in a heartbeat.... I might do it anyways but I wanna see if you'll do it first :P
