I would see it with more "empty" spaces, for instance:

This skinny one in the green pot is amazing. What a feeling it evokes. The pot works perfectly with it including the little ornamental feet.
Where did the pot come from.

I like them all. The twisted branches though will commit you to life time of wiring and pruning, but that's what its all about.
Have you seen my Ficus Microcarpa I call the Kracken? I just defoliated it and if I can find time will take a photo. Similar concept.

Great stuff! It is certainly challenging your artistic horizon. I have done a lot of this with junipers and ficus. Received the same comments about exaggerated curves and bends. Over time they "grow into them" and if you apply more traditional Japanese styling to them they become interesting pieces.

thanks jim for the answer Wink
and we are totally agree about the fact that with a wiser and classiquer shape of the branches they ll look more "readable"
and i made also some with hard curves of trunk and classics branches shapes...it looks very well
and after they re accepted easily by other bonsaikas Razz
but these ones are to go fully in the style drunken ..they ll mabe change a lot in the future by adding expending branches and little worlds

up for this one

Hi Cram

You really have your own artist style..and it is easy to see, you have a lot of fun with it too. The owerall shape of the trees is nice.
Look forward to see how you will continue them in the future...please give update.

The last tree look pretty in/with the pot Smile

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Cram

I agree with majority that you are performing an excellent art on trees.
Regardless of what bonsai rules say, I like your artistic styles with enhanced aesthetics!
It should be called something else! Does Cramistic Style fit? Smile
Keep going on your way please thumbs up

wow...
thank you very much!... that is very kind

but as i wrote in the title ...i learned this style from laurent darrieux and herve dora...they are both my teatchers
this style is their style...i only try to copy them as well as i can Embarassed
and i know they have quiet a lot more talent than me

actually i still don t understand why they still not have been contacted by the biggests european bonsai exhibitions to make demos scratch
of this style or another.... i really think they work as well as the best europeans demonsstrators
the ones who will call them will be really happy to did it ...i bet on it

anyway thank you for the sweet words sunny

Just found this post, wow, these are very interesting trees. I like them. In part I like them for the exaggeration of style. The first one, has matured nicely in the 2012 images. The wild twisting is really cool. With leaves it is easier to look at than without. Nice.

The single elegantly twisted whip in the green pot is really inspired. Very nice. Do you have updates on all of these for 2013?

I don't like it that much as it is now, but it's still in training so maybe I'll change my mind some day : "Il n'y a que les imbéciles qui ne changent jamais d'opinion"... Wink

So far, to me it looks shapeless though it probably has an interest in the winter. And I love "Chinese" bonsai, which are usually apparently more "freestyle" than traditional Japanese or European trees, but the various attemps that Laurent, Hervé and their followers are trying have not really convinced me so far, even if I praise any attempt to get off the trodden paths.

But I place a lot more hope on an elm styled this way than on a maple for instance. So, keep working, and don't botherr too much if anyone doesn't agree - but I hate when a thread is only praises when I think differently. So far, I think I've kept the balance, and I'm trying my best not to be offensive any more Cool
