I think Jazza should have gave 1.st place to you on showcase.
Thank you very much.
About showcase - The response, that Jazz gave to me, was so great. I don't know what may be better than those words and inspiring energy.
By any way i must work harder, to be better =^.^=
Excuse my poor English.
All my ratings belongs to this!
I was like amazing ＼(°o° ); as I saw it in the showcase.
Damn hope it will get featured in COTM3 anyways. It totally deserves it in my eyes. Great painting and also very detailed. The bones and the skull is well done, very nice talent for the light and shadows.
Keep it up.
It's really nice when someone appreciates your work )
But because this is "old" picture it it will not entering in COTM3. So for that competition, i'll draw a new one.
There's a lot of detail in this. I like that statue in the background! And the rest of it... the way the pathway fades away into a blue bliss is pretty nice, outlined by vivid color and tombs of stone. Wonder if there's some meaning in this, the dying (or at least severly injured) cat.... eating a rose... in a skull.. accepting his fate? A symbol of his dying? It's interesting, a bit sad; beautiful.
To be honest. i don't think about some meaning of picture when i'm drawing. I just take all feelings/ideas from my head and try to translate them in picture.
It's hard for my to even think by word so it's hard to explain. (Yes the most time i have the endless flow of images in my mind.)
But look at this:
1. - half-death cat - is my representation of DEATH himself. (cuz in many cultures cats have one or another sort of connection with death)
2. - Skull is stong symbol by itself
3. - Rose (i hope it looks like rose) in here represent for me the last sign of life or even "memory"
I don't know by what words i can describe all that mess in my mind ))
But if you think that my picture is interesting. If you feel something. Especially if this pic has prompted you on some reflections. Then it's wonderful and I'm very grateful for such a response.
Thank you! =^.^=
