The Theory Of Empty Space by hypnothalamus The Theory Of Empty Space by hypnothalamus
go for full-view to see the PNG file with the gradients preserved

will also be turned into a sculpture
the telescope comes out of the eye and has no other contact point
I'm planning to use some empty aluminum or PVC tubes for the telescope and the thing that goes through the eye should be a filled aluminum tube that continues through the body and his leg and then goes into the stand
next add some clay on the structure for the body and that should do it

OMG... Firstly, without reading the title of your great work, I was thinking that it was a syringe point to and not a telescope coming out of the eye. My interpretation was totally different once I realized the real meaning of this pic.
The human imagination has no limits.... :)
Great work! Congrats.

maybe you should let him rest his left hand on the back-edge of the stage, so you can have all the edges covered by a hand. otherwise i love how the telescope looks like an actual serringe injecying light in that empty space. and if i spoiled anything here do hide the comment :P

They make that copper rod/tubing that you can get in hobby shops. That might be a wise investment for something like the telescope here. But that's just my two cents. I love the smooth transition from warm to cool earth tones in this!

:iconhypnothalamus:
hypnothalamus Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010  Professional General Artist
copper is a lot heavier than aluminum (from memory) so I'll have to find tubes with really thin walls, but yeah that might be nicer

cptstarlight Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
They make it pretty thin. I think aluminum would be right for the main part of the telescope body, but I'd switch to copper on the way down.

I think the colours you used give it a sculptural feel as opposed to the parchment toned ones and I think it is a nice variation.

cool, subject. I always love the consistency in your work, but on a more critical note, i think that your choice of colour could've been better. I usually love your parchment and gray tone colour choices. Maybe try something like that on this one. Or a dark gray/blue spectrum similar to your last piece. Still, very nice job!

yeah I was going for this golden look but who knows, maybe some other color schemes would also work
anyway thanks for pointing that out, new/different ideas are always welcome :)

You'd have to make that telescope out of next to nothing so it wouldn't fall of, wouldn't you?

:iconhypnothalamus:
hypnothalamus Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2010  Professional General Artist
check the artist's comment again... other people have asked and will probably ask so I added the description there
but yeah you are right, the idea is to use some empty tubes for the telescope :)

veeeery nice. I like it alot... it's kinda thought-provoking. :) out of curiosity: if this is for a sculpture, won't there be some complications with the central point of weight? Are you balancing it out using different type of materials or..? :)

next you add some clay on the structure for the body and voila :)
but yeah should be challenging...
