Isolation .. little to long


Hii there you all artsy people!

Here is now my art piece for Jazzas art competition | Isolation | Been a while since last time I have joined any art competition when the school have taken alot more time for other stuff. But I enjoying it to the maximum, so much fun.

I have been waiting for Jazza to tell us about a new competition for a while, I wanted to make sure to find time next time like I did!


I wanted to try to bring forward the theme isolation from both side, often can isolation be connected to loneliness and darkness. But I see isolation as a good thing on the same time.

Like the human in the cage who has been isolated a little to long what leaded to dark time, but this creature lizard who wants to isolate him self from the outside world.

I hope and wish you enjoying my little artpiece, took me around 20h this piece, had so much fun and I wish you the best and good luck to everyone who is joining this competition.


Here is some pictures of the process:




I have used: Adobe photoshop cs6

(-6.5 I made a tiny small detail update. One of the mushrooms near the lizard, I took it away to get a more clear view on the lizard. And 14.5 I made a little more detail update with the sunlight around the lizard)

Thank You and I wish you the Best!

I find it strange that this one didn’t win or that it wasn’t even in the video. I thought this piece was without doubt the best one🤔

Thank you so much for the kindness, and wonderful to hear you liked it.
I can admit, everyone who won is so well deserved! SO beautiful pieces, but I can say when I have checked through all the top rated ones here at NG, I thought I was able to be seen in the video somehow but what I noticed through the pieces Jazza picked, Jazza looked after a specific kind of taste/style with the theme isolation, and I noticed my piece didn't have it. But I'm really happy overall + I have a top score by you! It is more than enough to make my day! Thank you!
Just to continue the daily practice to get better, every day counts!

This could be a picture in a children's adventure/fantasy book! It's so exciting and calming at the same time, well done!

Enjoyyourlife8 responds:

So nice to hear you liked it and I like your view on it, maybe it will be a child story one day, we know how the creative brain works when it kicks in so who knows!
But Thank you for the lovely comment!

Wow, its so beautiful! Well done!

Enjoyyourlife8 responds:

Thank you!! Appreciate the comment!

This piece is so magical! The colours and light is amazing and you've put alot of great details in it! (Maybe a little too much details, I didn't see the lizards in the front view or the one drinking at first cause it was hard to get a clear focal point). Great job!

Enjoyyourlife8 responds:

Huge huge thank you for the liking and the comment and so interesting to hear.
Well then it kiinda worked out in one way, cause I didn't want to have the lizards to show right away, just in this way you can look around in the piece and start to notice it is not a completely dead cave. The focal point I tried to get is the cage with the skeleton with one little story, but then the drinking lizard is the second focal point I tried to get when it stands out a little softly with the purple/pink colour. Just to get this isolation from both sides.
But it may happened then I should have made the contrast a little stronger still to bring it up, but lets see. I may update it just a bit before deadline. But thank you!

O.O Amazing!
