Forming New Life

Been a while since I've last posted the WIP of this piece ^^ I'm quite proud of this one and that doesn't happen a lot.. Especially about the sci-fi armor that was created from scratch along with everything else, only the stock image has been used (because you know I'm not that good with anatomy yet..)

Credits for the stock: Latex Stock by :iconkayladavion:

I hope you guys like it!

I like it. I think it's fantastic.

When this thumbnail came up in the thread, I was unable to get right to doing a critique, but even just the thumbnail intrigued me. I looked forward to getting at this one. Your work always has such wonderful depth, texture and flow. This particular work certainly doesn't disappoint in those regards.

I like the way this image doesn't overburden us with unneeded form. You have left much of the concept wide open for us to meander around in. I think that's a great mood enhancement and interest device for this "creation" kind of piece. You leave some of the impact of this artwork to be built upon the viewer's interpretation of it. We need more of these artworks which invite deeper involvement rather than those which simply dazzle us with loads of flash and dramatic rendering.

I don't have to say much about your color work, because you know, and I know, it's spot on. This piece would also lend itself nicely to trying some color experiments.

Simply as a matter of style, I'd really like to see a high contrast version of this. I'd like to see it using a raft of different brightness / contrast scenarios. Not because I think it needs it, but because I think some great effects could be easily coached out of this piece. But that's just my thinking.

There is one matter which I think you may want to address. When I am looking at the figure in the lower right corner, I want to know if you clip-flip-pasted your line work there? I think that's what you did, and that's fine sometimes when we're seeking symmetry. However, in this particular case, I think you wanted those lines -or waves- to be more swirling asymmetrically around the figure. Of course, I could be wrong.

Overall, I think it's a visually deep and interesting piece.
I'm glad you brought it forward.

Thank you.

Hey yo I think it's quite beautiful but it does suffer from one really large flaw which is killing it for me.

That is Values.

When I started to look at this, and even now as I look at it, it's difficult to really tell what is going on with this image. It has quite a bit to it the more I stare at it but the overall readability just isn't there unfortunately. The area between where the arm comes out and the torso is is especially hard to understand to the eye. It almost appears as if there should be some kind of shape or more to the creature there but the more I look and understand it just isn't that way. Now it's fine to not have something there but that's not the issue. The issue is that it takes so long to understand just what is actually going on here.

The area near the legs where this particle burst effect is coming in I can assume is where the body is forming. However, that is because the title of the piece. If I did not know the title I would assume the creature were disappearing and being disassembled. Another reason for this is because the surroundings are so dark. While it could be interpreted as the light in the dark, the new life being born inside this barren waste, it comes off more as a sad kind of death scene then a birthing.

A way I think this could have been improved to suggest the opposite of that is to really stretch that lighting and have it become more dynamic. Since it is so dark the glow of the creature and the particles would cast more light across whatever it could hit. If you go off and create a stronger directional light from this it could help to define the forms of the creature and separate it from the surroundings. As it is now, and as I mentioned above, the values are just too lackluster for me. There's barely anything differentiating the main subject from the background and consequently it becomes confusing to look at. I'd love to see this again if it were to be improved, otherwise I'd still love to see future works from you!

Okay. So I don't have much really to say...

When I first saw this piece, the main focus that attracted me was the different shades of blue and the different tones of blacks and greys. It feels so relaxing, cool and inviting, yet sad and lonely at the same time. Almost as if your character is sad... I felt generally sad yet hopeful for this character, which is something I have never really felt before when looking at a piece of art.

I can understand of the title of the piece, "Forming New Life". It looks as if he is creating a galaxy or a universe. Creating new life. The colours of blues and blacks really compliment each other, especially with the speaks on light. Really does make it like your character is holding a new galaxy (in his hands? Arms? Sorry, I couldn't really tell).

You piece has a really nice out of this world styled theme to it. I like it. I reminds my of Aliens and Doctor Who. Ahhh... I love Aliens. So flexible, nimble and majestic but powerful and deadly at the same time. For what your character looks like, he doesn't seem like the killing type. In fact, he is probably just a calm, innocent being that only wants to help... Well, that's what I think anyway.

[I say Doctor Who, because your character looks like a God. The person at the centre of the universe and the bringer of new live. However, you must sacrifice things you love, for the greater good of planets, people, galaxies, the universe, etc. (Also, I am watching Doctor Who all over again. Cry everytime T_T)]

Sorry for rambling on about nothing. It's a really good piece and I really do love it. I am going to favourite it because I really like it so much <3

I really like the colours and the mood and the silky texture and uuuuuuuuuuuuuu......

Created to destroy or destroyed to create.

Sometimes its silhouette was too blurry to proper explain or fast enough to focus on describing...
A slick suit topping with an azure mask.
The steel golem of skies.
Its high-shaped angular look was glowing the shadowy rays mixed with spooky explosions of bright.
It beholds a surrealistic almost alien appearance to this reality.
Its sharp contour was pushing with its greatness towards any of its creations.
Eyes were turning dark with sparkles purple when it was silent, thinking or green with flames of flash when it was speaking.
The most unusual colors of its eyes were red and silvery.
Bloody spheres were shown loosely at the times when it was wishing of something that was new.
For a god, wishes were like unseen dreams.
Wishing was just so fast, so spontaneous that it could have just seized in its mind for just nano second.
Once there is a master that comes in and creates it in new reality.
One day there is this one that changes anything into everything.
How confused was it billions years ago and how bored since.
Different numbers and they are everywhere.
They came and never going to leave…
At first when it began to settle the new life inside, there was just a core warming surroundings and raising a tremendous pasture for its creativity.
Darkness was gathering free source of life and as a result, the shadows turned into individual souls.
Some of them then moved towards the light, while others decided to remain in chaotic places of birth.
These two oppositions began to create the city in the rules of its word.
From the alpha of its claw a white sheet appeared and laid down across the cobbled mantel between its paved legs.
The dark wizard released its hand over as its fingers clotted, melting away the charcoal liquid, which fell into the center of changing emanation.
A substancial dot was circulating around, spreading rays of shadows mixed with light.
It all grew and finally began to emerge from the leaf.
It arched its force on the cluster of animated images and flashed huge lightning out of its noxious hand.
The gap with floating inside paddling objects hexed into the space within stars and galaxies.
That's what left on the convention after a few minutes while the forceful power was creating the new beginning.
The steel golem of skies was vigorously ready to trigger its future characters into the story of life and death.
Those who were still small behind its back.
Souls of uncountable scale began to fly upwards into the deep void dwindling, as at the same time getting closer to its master...
The new world began...

Presently, how about to create a world that doesn’t have numbers?
Would the master be lost with it?

The reflective surface of the armor looks so unreal.  A significant portion of her is so indistinct that you can't tell her from the environment.  At first, you wonder if she's the creator and then you realize that she's the created.  This is a magnificent piece.

Oh my, I don't think anyone has ever captivated the way I saw this piece, quite as right as you did ^^
That was exactly what I was going for! Thank you for sharing this vision :)
