Sophia, a surrealistic artwork that expresses an old classical mood, yet modern with the presence of the geometric form and the sharp lines. A stunning work from *AnotherWanderer ( Featured by SRudy )

Not so hard to imagine, i've never met a shrink even marginally more insightful than the average person of acceptable intelligence.

I love how it looks like an old piece if contemporary artists came in and suffocated the women with jagged edges and a bit of color. This is fabulous. Each section is drawn beautifully (especially the folds in her clothing) and has a good amount of value.

I love it.

Beautiful piece, great use of the medium, and nice take on the Old Masters style. I assume "Sophia" is a reference to Wisdom in the Greek, gnostic, and Christian traditions. The pyramid/triangle kinda bolsters this reading, although the hands and string are a bit of a mystery to me. I do like the mysterious quality in this piece, however. Nice work.

anotherwanderer Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Yes, your assumption is correct :) Shortly, the string represents wisdom that she weaves and the hands are people who crave it, while the triangle stands for the 'fixed' aspect of reason (reflected by math, sciences etc.).

Cu mare placere! Am vazut ca iti place foarte mult si arta digitala. Nu am incercat niciodata desi admir mult lucrarile digitale... inca imi aduc aminte tentativele mele rusinoase de a desena cu un mouse acum multi ani :D Poate cu un tablet ar fi altceva.

Si eu am inceput cu mouse-ul, dar nu are rost, mai mult te enervezi. Ai putea sa incerci sa-ti iei o tableta, modelul pe care il am eu se cheama Wacom Bamboo, e destul de ieftina, cred ca in jur de 70-80 euro, si merita fiecare cent. :)

Merci mult pentru info! Chiar o sa ma interesez zilele astea. Am vazut multe lucrari digitale deosebite si de mult ma gandesc sa incerc o tableta. Avand in vedere ca o cutie de creioane colorate Faber Castelle costa in jur de 200 euro (buna calitate nu le justifica pretul), tableta are un pret mai mult decat rezonabil. :)
