Will the wizard give me a heart...?


Part of a series I am working on, you can see the scarecrow here... [link]

This style is very much inspired by ~larkie, I always appreciate his kind words and his inspiration.

Stock by `exorist, inertia stock x.chng and someone else that I can not remember.

Nice! I would have liked to have seen the face and the torso have closer colorization, but it's a great manip!
The-Tinman Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2004

Im not good at commenting on graphics since im a writer, but this is amazing. I love the way the chest is done.. that green is so decomposed I can smell it. The face looks so scared though.
You really are amazing.

HA! Man thats some freaky shit, its too real! its scares the hell out ov me :sprint:

outstanding work on the body. you really created a convincing illusion of skin peeling back to show metal. the work on the face is beautifully done as well, and that expression is so hauntingly sad. the mood created by this piece is just overwhelming.
the only thing that bothers me slightly is the lack of unity between the face and body. if you added a slightly more yellow tone to the head, it might match the body's skintones a little better. that's about all i can offer for constructive crit. this is excellent work.

Awsome stuff. The use of textures is bad ass ;)
rainbowblight Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2003
I hate it when I'm all late, and a million people have commented before me. Ah well, the pieice is good, so I'm gonna comment, damn it! Anyway, I love the "paint job" The head's a little big for the body, but so was the original tin man. PLus you manip'd it beautifully! The texture on the skin and those haunting eyes really make it stand out. I also really like the background and border. I don't care what everyone else says, so nyeh! ;) (Wink)
moogstruck Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2003
WOW! once again im in awe of your talent!!! this piece especially is so wonderful. the addition of the moon is nice. all the details in his face, rather somber looking. such a great job.
DanLuVisiArt Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2003  Professional Digital Artist
Oh jeez..thats so crazy........I love the way the skin peels off, you're so good at this :D (Big Grin)
khim3ra Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2003
Oh wow this is GREAT! you can give him my heart because its already in my throat.
hybrid-acid Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2003
-wow- this has so many different and cool things in it, his head looks like petrified bone. very neat. his eyes look so new and um fresh. this background has really lovely shades of purple....ramble ramble =) (Smile)
I like it, but i wouldn't be too happy if he was coming at me so
Horns keep rockin' it

uhuuuuuu super looks like a junkie waiting for the cure!"puke:
nemmy Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2003
exceptional work. i love your amazing ability to use textures in the right elements. his chest is amazing..the shadowing of the top layer in contrast to the green and rustic tonnes underneath is wonderful. the b/g is beautifully incorporated and the textures on his face so well blended. what i always love best about your work though, is the story that seems to come with the manip, your use of unique photographic images and the way you seem to bend them to your will. +favlove
iba Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2003
Wow! Very creepy. But in a good way. Nice job! You know that you're on my deviant watch. Right?
in-sanity Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2003
I particularly love the level of detail in this piece and how well the textures are applied. The expression in the character's face, something like a "I didn't do it" after killing someone or something... lol
Great work. :) (Smile)
anatheme Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2003
wow, the moon looks beautiful. But in my honest opinion the background and the figure could be more united. The colour from the sky could somehow reflect the figure. I like the man tho, it's very well blended. This adds a lot to your styles again. :) (Smile) good job
0wow0 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2003
beautifull! when i look at the body,i don t want to see anything else
tamaralance Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2003  Professional General Artist
You did a wonderful job on the torso here. I like the colors on it and the texture is perfect. Nice work!
caladrius Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2003
Very creepy yet very beautiful. I like the look on the eyes and got to love that moon. There's a very strong emotion here. I like it lot!!! w00t!

Damn man, this is off the hook! The detail kicks azz. Great work on the set up of the head and the BG goes well here. +fav
chim3ra Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2003  Professional Traditional Artist
wonderful, i really like it, great pose and nice color scheme
defmunky Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2003
werd, i can definately see the larkie influence, mostly in the face. nice colors, but maybe the colors in the bg are a bit too drastic. u know how picky i am :D (Big Grin) but i do really like the work on the face and body. great textures and u got everything all smooth. those eyes rock, definately a bit pouty. great work man, sorry it took so long to comment :o (Eek) +fav
melleciouss Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist

awsome work!!

(mebbe the wiz can get him some hair ..hehe)

swampy Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2003
its very well done man, especially the flaking skin. i can kinda see the larkie influence, kinda like tim burton too. all the elements of it are well put together. real good job
revolutionmethod Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2003
Nice work, the peeling texture used on the body looks awesome as does the moon and the sky. However, to be honest I think the head really lets this piece down. It looks out of proportion to me and I don't think it flows well with the rest of the piece.
Still, I thought everything else was top notch.
banxter Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2003
Awesome work James bro.
Love the peeling skin, and I love that body frame. Works very well. I remember it from "The Liar" I think. Very good for manips, and you used it very well here. :) (Smile)

Just great. Love the moon and sky also.
Great colors, and I especially love the expression on the guys face. :) (Smile)

Great work bro. +fav

looking good jax,i love the worn and battered look of the tinman and the background gives the image a nice bit of depth :) (Smile)
nebu Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2003  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome work jax hun!! I love the texture on the chest! I love this, it does remind me of larkie and also fluxie I guess cuz of the big moon in the bg. Excellent work!!! +fav

shadowmech Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2003
Awesome expression in his face! And the eyes look really good!
I can definetly see resemblance to ~larkie s work.
The skin peeling is very nice looking also. Not quite sure about that background... But cant figure anything better though...
Anyway, great work and I hope to see more similar to this.
Thumbs Up

Very very good job !
It's a beautiful heartless creature ;) (Wink)

darktriumphant Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2003
That really scares me, the expression on the face... wooohaaa.
Excellent job again my friend!
The only thing that bugs me, is the green on the body and head, you know Im a fan of monoton colors ;) (Wink) , but thats just me =) (Smile)
katharien Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
man the eyes in this piece are AMAZING...howd you do that?? i like the tin showing underneath, and has that aztec look of applying the dead warriors skin over the body...great!
johann Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
Sorry I won't say to much about this piece but I just love it Love
Really really man, best piece I've ever seen in a while (in my opinion) Clap
My favorite part is the body and how the eyes are blended in the head. Superb w00t! !
I'm in to manipulation too, but I don't know how you did with the body... Just AMAZING =D (Big Grin)

+fav Hug

noctemvixen Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
I like it alot :) (Smile) . And I just told you I did :) (Smile) . I think the skin looks cool peeling off to see the metal. And the face has the perfect expression for him having no heart. I love those beautiful eyes Kiss . He looks so sad.
