The Art of Focus by jaxcullengfx The Art of Focus by jaxcullengfx
Render: [link]

Why "The Art of Focus"? I had a crappy day, so started this as a "tune out of the world" type thing. Almost 70 layers before text later, while meticulously focusing on detail, I had this. Gotta love art therapy! It's the best kind. :)

Concept: Ever have that moment where you seem calm but actually are just ready to just snap? The red rage just lurking in the background of a calm blue/green peace? The moment you snap--swift, merciless, focused, and intense (the red spatter). I typically prefer triadic or analogous color schemes, but went with a more split complementary one for this to accentuate the edgy contrast between the calm and anger.

...and with the ability to visualize the crappish day I was having, I felt much better. Thanks for viewing! This concludes this edition of Art-prah. Stay tuned! :giggle:

Yes 'focus' indeed... gotta say I love that blend you pulled off. The reds are kind of too much but the depth and the blend in this are really overpowering.

What's a rage tag without a little overpowering red? :giggle: Conceptually, if the red stands for the anger, it sits within the blending of the blue calm around him, and the red spatter in front being that final snap moment. ;) Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like it!
