I explored the various artists on this site, and instead of having you guys look for meaning in my pieces (im sure some of you will capture it) im going to describe each piece i showcase. As i noticed this is a younger audience i want people to fully appreciate (if they do it all) my work and whats behind it. Also maybe it might give inspiration!
Ill start with the piece im most proud of. Took me about 70+ hours to draw this and complete it.
Concept: A monk goes to a swingset and plays with the sand creating a cityscape that he deems to be the world. Then swings above it looking down on all the marvels reflecting on life and becomes humble'd by the things he sees.
Things you might not notice or think about: The perspective is extremely abstract and surreal. It begins as just a simple shot of the swing moving in action but as you look through the cityscape all desgins of the city are drawn at bird view angle (multiple bird view angles) so no matter where you look its as if your dirrectly above it. Then the cityscape's angels slowly morph into similair perspectives creating lots of abstract shapes and feels. The design of the buildings are meant to be crude as i did not intend the monk in the picture to be a great artist, instead i wanted something that he could realisticly create on his own given what i deemed to be satisfactory. There are lots of improvement's that can be made here but as for one i am pleased. As for the horizon i chose a curve to resemble the earth as if the monk is up in space resembling his feelings on what he has created beneathe him and how it makes him feel about the world and his life.
Critiques are open and opinions more then happy to hear. Not all my work is this deep and meaningful but i have some others with meaning -_-
