I'm trying a more artistic approach in digital, moving away from design. This piece is striving to symbolize the human naivety when comes to religion across the ages.

What...is this? I have no idea, but it's an absolute masterpiece. I can't help but thinking it was meant to symbolize something. Here's what I think of. I think it means how we idolize people, but it will only lead to our own destruction. Who we idolize becomes stronger and more evil, was that it?

Whatever the intention, I love this picture. You just have absolutely no idea what's going to show up next. It's a big picture, so you scroll it down. Now that I look at it, I think it's more about time. That doesn't really fit in with the title, though. Whatever, it's fantastic!

That is very interesting and the detail is quite amazing. I like the hour-glass idea behind it. As amazing as this is though, the background could have had a little more work done to it...I realize that may be intentional, but in my opinion it kinda just seems lazy. xD

I like to express an important idea as simple as possible. My opinion is that any background would only distract from the subject matter here. There are other works that I reserve detailed backgrounds for :)

A stunning piece, with a stirring premise and an equally stirring delivery.
The powerful contrast of shape, size and texture of the two figures really drives the concept deep into the bedrock of the brain - doubly so when it is explained and the viewer knows what everything is meant to represent.
The vastness and unknowability of the great black figure - especially in comparison to the frailty of the woman praying, practically unnoticed, at its back, is beautiful to behold. The two impossibly round circles behind it place it in a space beyond the woman - beyond her reach, and beyond her ken.
If nits must be picked, then there is perhaps some roughness to the 'feathers' pluming off of the entity's back and arms, where a little more detail and refinement to make them look more feather-like may have served the piece - and people who like to look at details - well. But the boldness and consistency of the style make this is a middling, pedantic issue at the very best.
It's a great piece - well done.
5/5
