i guess it's one of those poppy images which deserves it's popularity. looks almost like a photo of real environment. adorable technique, specially the lights and colors. i better stop and don't comment on the concept cuz u might not stand this amount of compliments
Paradise Lost and Original Sin are an argument I'm very interested in. I find that this picture could be a perfect and original cover for a work abou this stuff... I should print it and hang it on my wall to think about these matters!
good work - as always
I have you on my watch list for such a long time and yet I didn't comment much on your work mostly because I have hard time to express my self on english . But I want you to know that your work is truly great .
I love this piece very much. Tones are wonderful. This is like some beautiful vision of the world that could happened and maybe promise althought it looks quiet untouchable... You should make a print .
*sighs* I have missed so much on DA during these rough times in my life-- I need to catch up! This is just marvelous-- the details are so rich and the elements come together to make it seem so alive. Grand work my friend
I hope you will make this one a print ! The composition is
awsome - almost like trompe l'oile (sp?) paintings I've seen.
And the barbed wire around the apple hints at the conse-
quences of choice. Great colors. Another favorite ! Wonder-
ful job isolating the vinework on the edges of the arch - looks
very time consuming !!
It's so dark and beautiful.. This image has power on biblical scales, but a kind of intimate secrecy that can be felt through movies like The Labrynth and books like The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe series. Flippin' wonderful, man! *worship* I love the detail in the vines, the stone arch is perfect as well as the stones in the ground. The way the barbed wire and apple do crazy tricks with perspectives and act like a lure is a mark of a good artist with a good imagination. (but 'good' is an understatement). Congratulations for being this damn talented!!
I'm almost speechless with this piece. It has so much emotion and texture and overall...feel, for lack of a better term. I also love the concept, on all levels of its existence; there are certainly plenty of ways one could look at it. My only slight gripe, and it's very slight (and I only have the backing of a viewer, really, to be giving this comment) is the color of the apple. It took me a moment to realize what I was looking at, even after I viewed the larger version. My eyes were too geared to the tree and other features. I don't know, it just seems like it would maybe be slightly better with a more reddish tint, maybe a rust-burgundy to complement that paper bag brown and moss-green.
Anyway, that's just merely a suggestion (and one not based on much, lol!), but I thought I'd point out my feelings on that. It may just be my eyes, which are stressed, haha. Either way, this is an amazing piece!
