Thank you. It was a odd piece to work on. My favorite part is the arm tech on the left... come out the way I saw it in my minds eye.

if you truly want it. it is always possible. the reason i can is practice and also the fact that doing this doesnt feel like a job. it feels right to who i am.

Your themes and styles remind me of the artist Luis Royo a little.

royo is a classic. i still own some of his books. would like to meet him someday. i would be lying if i say i havent been infleunced by him to a degree. the guy pretty much made the female form.

Dorian Cleavenger is another good one with female form. Both he and Royo have such originality and creativity.

cant disagree with that although. i must say that royo has a beter finish and he also has beter skills at materials and control over his lighting. one thing that bothers me is the pastel feel of dorians work and the kind of colour pencil feel. the lighting is always very harsh and blown out in his midtones and highlights. buttttt... thats just my opinion. but thats just probably why i dont do it that way. iam starting to sound like my critics. haha.

I see what you mean. Royo's does look a little more distinguished. As for the colored pencil look, I'm afraid I'm still using them. Ha ha I can do a lot better than what I have submitted, I just like to doodle with pencils. I really want to get into Photoshop or something to try some serious digital art. There are a myriad of things I am feeling inside me that I want to convey in art and when I go even a day without doing any kind of art, it just builds up and rages on inside me, getting me frustrated. Art helps keep me feeling more...liberated.

the pencil look isnt wrong, just not something i ever grew to like. i use to work with them when i was younger. that eventually went to oil paint, then acrylic and oil mixture and then i started airbrushing. all of the above did what it should, but it never gave me te look and finish i wanted. so. i tried digital. and make no mistake, the things and techniqeus i learned in traditionale mediums i still use extensively today in digital. the rules havent changed, just the poison. there isnt that much of a difference. you dont have to wait for paint to dry or breath in vapourized thinners. little easier on the body. trad gives you a great basis for digital. and i can honestly say without it i would be able to do what i do daily in digital. thats a fact.

When it comes to self expression. and when it comes to that daily routine thing: its best you dont overdue it either. i felt similar to you for many years, but as soon as you start doing it as a job then it has the reverse effect. and at some point it starts frustrating you instead of being a relief. the trick is balance. one can get lost so easily in all the imaginary aspects of this career that you end up opening your eyes one day thinking were the fuck did all the time go? the other day i was 18 and now i am well on my way to 30.

For a while, I had a few convictions against digital art and I was of the mind that digital and traditional were two completely separate worlds, but lately, I've learned that there is a big connection between the two and that traditional can help you transition into digital and make you be a little more prepared for it. It can also help you polish up your skills and newly created works. And I agree, there's just something that digital can do for your art that traditional can't always do. It can give more of the desired effects to your art, like lighting and dimension that would normally be a little harder to achieve with pencil, though I understand it can be just as frustrating perfecting those even with digital.

I guess I have always been one to try to turn to fantasy to escape the real world, because the real world is often cruel, harsh and unfair. And while I feel a little relief when I do art, I still stress about many things, and there have been some days when I actually felt worse after I worked on art, so I definitely get what you're saying about having to learn to balance it. I often get depressed about time flying so fast. Like you, I too am almost 30, but it seems like it was just yesterday that I was graduating from high school and thinking about the choices of getting a job or trying to go to a college. In my last years of school, everyone kept telling me to pick a college and think about what I wanted to be and pushing me toward business classes. But I kept thinking to myself, "All I want to do is art!" I wanted to do what I loved and maybe someday make money at it. I didn't want to live the life where I felt I was a slave to the world and society and time. But it's so hard to get away from that and most people spend their whole lives trying to, and before you know it, your life has flown by.

art is no different to flipping burgers at mcDonalds. you supply something towards other pples needs. no job in the world is ever what we want it to be. all one can do is manage it and find methods of coping. als

ill be publishing the work under a trademark later this year. with a coffee table book and a poster for free when you purchase the book. so, i am afraid not. there are some legalities inhibiting me to sell them at this point. becoz the publisher recieves royalties. so i have to keep the orginal pieces exclusive if i want this to happen until the work is published under the trademark and the publishers name. i apologise for this inconvenience. but my hands are tied at this point.

my goal is to make these pieces available to the public, that was the intention all along. but its cool to see that someone actually seems truly intrested in buying one. just bares as a indicator to me that i wont be wasting my time publishing the images. you guys will just have to be a bit patient. iam working on it. :)

A beautiful image, wonderfully illustrated. As you say above different people will take different things from the image and perhaps I am looking at it somewhat literally, but she does not appear vulnerable to me being wired into and cocooned within some formidable mechanical apparatus.

vulnerablity doesnt exist in a literal environment to which you are refering. it exists in the mind. ive seen this emotion countless times in females. and it is hardly ever spelled out. humans dont like showing that they feel anxious, unsafe, or lonely. it tends to sit just underneath the surface. boiling. that moment that i tried to capture also never lasts long at all. the purpose of this image wasnt to explain the feeling vulnerablity as is, but it is rather the resulting realisation in the subject matter. i dont know if you noticed the tears rolling down her cheeks. not everyone lashes out or expresses themselves in a overt manner. from a artistic point of view, its the composure that some people seem to have when they in fact have a termoil of emotions running underneath that cool surface.

Fraxture Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
well, every person will take what they see from the images i create. originally my intention was to explore human vulnerbality when feeling confused and afraid. so this particular image was initially created around the story of girl that was taken as a slave and then converted into what you see in the image. so you were partially correct to assume that conclusion which is great. alot of the art i create attempts to illustrate the small moments between were most pple are to scared to go becuase its just tapes into our most basic instincts and to most that is scary. primal in some way, in a contextual setting of a enviroment that spans and says the exact opposite yet remaining brutal in itself. this is amplified by the overt female presence. soft curves and hard edges of that which surrounds them or her in this case.as the title also states: dont leave. the realisation (which is also a awakening of sorts as you mentioned sleep) that she is alone and is simply asking not to be left in solitude. to whom is not revealed. but i leave that to the viewer to decide. so the result can either be one of responsive comfort or creulty by being denied her wish. hope this answers your qeustion.
