I like the concept for a sculpture: A simple shape in the middle of a forest or on top of a mountain... ^^ It makes a contrast with the context. The subject doesn't detache that much from the background as if it was there for a lonng time. Even thought it is in the forest it looks futuristic.
It makes me think of the ''Garden of imagination'' in Terrasson in which there is a simple copper shape that guide visitors through the wood.
The forest is dam good by the way! I'm trying to get a good at representing vegetation, (since i'm a landscape architect to be) and yours is not monospecific and it feels great!
I'm not interested in spamming my watchers with critiques, so I will post mine here in the comments instead, and hope that you get it and that you won't mind my round-about ways.
I always marvel at how you can see improvement to your previous work with every new piece you submit. I've been in love with the way you paint smooth surfaces for a long time, and this is certainly not an exception. I can't place much critique on the structure itself, aside from the fact that the greens on it seem to have been relatively poorly defined. Moss and grass, or strange alien slime oozing out of the cracks in it? I unfortunately cannot tell.
What really takes away from this piece is the background and the way the eye moves. Your eyes first move to the top corner of the picture and follow the structure down to the ground. Ok. I can live with that. What bothers me is the log and the dark area below the tree. Not only is it positioned right next to the brightest part of the piece, your gaze actually directly LED there by following the log and the motion of the stone. I simply feel that the attention could have stayed on the marble, the really INTERESTING part, if the darker area had 1. been lightened, 2. been reduced in size and 3. if the details on the entire tree were brought down a notch to match the rest of the piece.
Over all, a pleasure to look at. I kind of want this as an oil painting and hang it over my TV now.. would be much more interesting to stare at for 20 minutes, that's for certain.
well its definitely interesting. the detail is Phenomenal i suspect you used photoshop...i just cant figure out what it is. it looks almost like a giant crashed paper air plain. i refuse to look away not until i have deciphered what it is.
This image is amazing, not only you've worked with light and shadow in an amazing way, but also contrasted the "strict" lines of the man-made object with the savage gorwth of the forest. The beauty of this piece, for me, resides exactly on that contrast <3 Amazing work! Congrats!
The lighting on the abstract subject confuses me a little. The lighting on some of the planes don't seem to match up. Although I'm not sure if the two brightest spots are suppose to be reflecting or giving off light, so some of my comments might not even mater. If it is giving off light then you succeeded with the reflective light for the top left shine, but for the bottom center I would think the darker olive green pointing down would have some reflective light. At least a shine or two on the left corner/side.
If they are reflecting an outside light source then this really confuses me. judging solely on the two brightest points of the abstract piece i can see two different light sources. Although if that were true, then why aren't the other two center sides facing us just as bright as the bottom one? Also wouldn't the top be lighter than the bottom? Unless the light was coming from below, but then the light would also reflect off of the dark olive green facing down I mentioned earlier ...
After looking at this piece for a few minutes just trying to figure out the lighting I ALMOST feel like you really didn't have an exact lighting source. Though it is realistically rendered enough to fool someone glancing by. For instance the light patch on the underbrush seems to match with the brightest center side of the abstract, bringing the two together and creating balance.
Now despite making me confused on the lighting, I actually really like the composition, weird lighting and all. I personally view abstract models such as this to be a symbol of futuristic growth, syfi, maybe just technology in general. This mixed with the rich greens, and some what eerie blue foggy bg, I don't know it just seems to fit in a contrasting harmony. The green tint of the abstract really pulls it into the forests, while it's straight edges just set it appart, and shout look at me!
The confusion with the light source mixed with the cracks also sort of go with each other in a way. Saying that the object isn't perfect, but its beautiful. That it shouldn't work in the real world, but it does in the artistic world where anything is posible.
Overall, even though abstract really isn't my style, I still really enjoyed looking at this in further detail then a passing glance.
I thought it was real. o-o This is truly amazing! At first i thought it was real before i clicked on it but when i did i looked it in shock. To think someone could draw like this. its far to amazing i must say. It is something i have been expecting to see on Deviantart. I am sure many people will use this as a reference for them selves to learn how to draw nature like environments like this, I know that I will be using this
