II: Gaia

The second part of my possession series. In this part the possessed is enjoying her new powers, playing god with the corruption thriving in her.
This is actually the first image I made for this series, so the outcome might appear more raw and experimental than the other parts. I just wasn't sure yet where I was going with it, however the messy look at least is fully intentional. Again, one of the goals here was to break a few design rules here and there. ;)
Although I wasn't directly inspired by him during the creation of this image, I probably have to give credit to Aegis-Illustration as the image bears resemblance to his great gallery. He is so damn good at these kind of texture based works and he has been an inspiration for a long time. :worship:

:star::star::star::star-empty::star-empty: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Impact

Vision: Mother Earth(Gaia) had been portrayed as an artist and still forming the beautiful nature even though she's falling apart.

Originality: This artwork is utterly fresh,this is an irreplaceable approach on modernizing a mythological figure symbolically.

Technique: If this is made through Photoshop, the techniques seems to be simple yet is executed lavishly. The vibrant colors and shades blend nice together.

Impact:Art exists because of nature and nature exists because of her- she herself is an artist.E ven though she is being destroyed she still continues her task. If you look more closely it's conveying us to conserve the nature.

Amazing work! I love the angle of the character so much, and the contrast of the image works great.
