Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-13
Suggester says: " I have been a watcher of hers for quite a while and watched her work improve more and more culminating with this piece... just stunning work."
Mind Web by *IT-Hammar ( Suggested by Astroluc and Featured by Mollinda )
Wicked! Well drawn representation of thought. I like the entangled strands, that seem, to still flow freely through each other with-out hinderance. The tight braid helps show a solid, complex core structure that lends stability and strength to the composition. The celtic weave across the top denotes an open, airy feel, as if to invite new ideas to form and grow like plants towards the light. The shading,darker in the center of the image and gradually lightening to the edges, also helps illustrate the depth of complexity, as well as draws your eyes to the female figure perched in the center, deep in thought. I like the way this image portraits simplicity and complexity simultainiously. If you look for detail, you'll find it. If you look for simple, eye-pleasing composition and structure, you'll find that as well.

At the first time, I though it was an illustration of Rapounzel, from the fairy tale you know ? and when I read the description, I understood that it was so different as that. Then this drawing looks for me as a nice illustration of those mind and those thoughts link to life and problems.

This is a very interesting drawing. I would suggest that you have never seen the work of "Escher" the graphic would find it a source of motivation. Your most recent painting a the start of your gallery. With the "clouds and flowers" is another reason for you to see his work. He was graphic artist and a true master. His Surrealism is without equal.

I'm actually already a fan, for many years. ;)

Well, I am pleased but not surprised. Escher's attention to perspective and ability to twist it with such precision still almost makes my head hurt. I have a book with examples of how methodical he developed his drawings. When in art school I go a chance to work on "litho" stones and again that was a real wake up call. Serious drawing...always seems to be half dream related and the other half remembering the details of that dream. Rolling around your head until it's ready to come out. Good Luck and let me know when you have any new important drawings. Best Regards

Good: I like your style. Very traditional and not cartoony. Great Geometry and beautiful lines. I like that clean look and I really like your shading.
Bad: very hard to find any flaws. Pretty much the same suggestion I gave you on the other(s) piece(s). If you could make the vines less random and actually shape into something recognizable I think it would give your work more value.

I love the contrast here - even though she's in the middle of this tangle, she looks calm and is naked.

this is amazing. i'm curious why the figure has less modeling than the "mind web." Was it intentional?
