Ooh.. I like the style of it.
And the idea.
I don't know, I might be wrong, but I still find something deep in this. :|
So, keep the work up, you're amazing! :hug:

I love the colors in this one. You managed to get an incredible amount of depth by choosing your focus and non focus points. Many times this type of artwork doesn't feel quite right because everything is in focus. Behold the power of fuzziness. Oh and I love your Empower. I've got it on my desktop. Thanks

**All of the information here are real, and all of these are happening in your body(bottom left corner)** Very interesting, I didn't seeit until I blew up the picture some. That makes the photo all the better and more artistic. I really like the effect. Outstanding job, tell you sister I said thanx too :)

i just stumbled on your gallery the other day. this stuff is amazing. the detail and illuminescance is key. the graphics and text work together well in a scientific way. contrast between crisp linear pattern over soft organic shapes was a good choice, but im sure you already got 10,000 comments saying this exact same thing. if you have any pointers or good tutorials id like to know.
+ fav
awesome job.

This piece has such am amazing feel to it, as do all your works. This is one of my personal favorites here at deviantART, I love everything about it, the color, the render, the typo, everything. It has a microscopic feel to it.
I just recently changed my name here and I had to :+fav: this first.

Vibrant image - the colors are definitely the strongest point of this image, and I think your idea has an extremely large amount of potential. However - honestly - at this point in time, I think that it could use much much more. The typography/2D especially, looks very amateur - and could use much more detail.

I think what's generally hurting your typo here is the scale and possibly the font. My main problem is that it doesn’t really look complex and intricate, (maybe intentionally so, but at the expense of aesthetics imo) quite simply because you don't have 2D of a much smaller scale as well. It seems like you were going for that kind of intricate, techy effect with tons of interacting and intertwining 2D - all the small bars, numbers, mini-text, etc... but stopped half way. I think your piece would turn out much better if you added much much smaller bars all over that horizontal line you have going in the center, possibly some evenly spaced out short vertical lines, small 6pt numbers over the evenly spaced lines, and other small details like that to enhance the detail level and finalize all that movement that you have propagating to the right. Try your hardest to achieve a sense of detail and intricacy without actually occluding the form itself. It would probably work out better too if you made the mini text a bit smaller, and changed the leading (vertical spacing between text lines) so that the lines squish together a bit more.

A few more random suggestions - It might be a good idea to make some kind of iconic symbol in Illustrator to go with the piece to display next to the '686kcal' text - some kind of symbol associated with science / the topic you were going for. I'm envisioning some kind of test tube, or maybe something that represents heat, etc. Little details like this solidify and enhance the professionalism of your piece in drastic amounts. Maybe try to make that line graph a little more detailed by adding more realistic fluctuations in the line? Add numbers along the bottom of it for extra detail? I think what will help you the most with 2d, is making small 2D details like numbers/graphs in much smaller sizes. Try to fit as much detail as you can into the piece without outdoing the actual 3D itself.

Last tip - I would suggest trying to align all of your 2D elements along an imaginary grid. When everything is aligned up and sharing axis' - the 2D composition really takes on a nice orderly, intelligent, and aesthetic appearance. Hundreds of years in design have proven that grid-based/biased design is timeless. Especially when you are trying to make it look like information on top of your piece. (Really that's all that techy 2D is, just mock-information arranged in " intelligent" organizations)

Anyway, sorry for the exceedingly long post, and I hope I did not come off as snobbish or a "know-it-all", I'm just stating what I see as flaw in hopes of people improving - if you disagree at all then by all means, create how you want to create. Ultimately it is your expression. Cheers!

I'm going to keep my comment relatively short here since Transic has covered every aspect wonderfully.

A quote from Transic that I want to STRESS because it is extremely important for abstracts:

"Last tip - I would suggest trying to align all of your 2D elements along an imaginary grid.

Great work, it could just use a couple refinements here and there. Keep up the awesome work.

Much ownage in this piece, one of my personal fav's

and while i'm aware i'm several months late in commenting

concerning the #, 686 kcal is the amount of energy contained in molecule of glucose (basic sugar that the body burns for energy)

since i'm a perfectionist tho, i thought it was prudent to mention that while u burn the glucose that has 686kcal in it, per every respiration u really only get about 263 kcal out...

lol yay for bein a bio geek ;)

in a conversation with a fellow artist the other day, the subject of digital art as a respectable art form came up (we both come from traditional art backgrounds) and i told him i'd find an artwork that properly defines and justifies digital art and your image will be my 'exhibit A' :) (Smile) beautiful work. keep it up

hey man, sorry havent been round to see this one sorry :( (Sad)


well as for the piece i thought it looked like a piece of s%&t when i saw thumbnail hehe but when i gave it a full view it was much much better. I still like blue better but i guess its getting overused hehe these colors are pretty nice and warm too.

one more thing, you know that white spot near 686? i tihnk thats like kinda too bright and distracts and disrupts the flow.

oh and the 2d here is awesome ;) (Wink)

This is what I call DESIGN PC

ya know is not common to find something so special like this, showing the right balance between the colour, text and images, incluiding the overall design and the format in this case WIDE Horizontal :) (Smile) The illumination is very goodie, I would say : expressive.

Enough. I didn't say at all that this is my best work. And I don't control the f**king DTF, okay? If you think it can be better, tell me how. If you don't like it much, no need to post your damn personal preferences here as it helps NOBODY.

And I didn't fav it 34 times to make it DTF. Don't talk as if I did wrong.

subset I completely agree and this itself has been a test... DA is more of a hypocracy than it is an actual art community... It has become more about "who submitted this again?" Than "wow that looks cool." No offense to nite b/c I like his stuff but this my friends is not some of his "best" work and it doesn't deserve this kind of attention... Not one bit... I've seen much better that has gotten much less...
