In case you are interested on knowing how I created this image, you can download the .PSD in small resolution to know my step by steps. (please do not post this image in any other place and claim it as your own. I only provide the .psd for those of you that want to know the whole process I used and learn something from it)

As soon as I saw that skeleton image I knew I had to do something with it. So here you go my 30 minute manipulation. I hope you liked it as much as I did to create it.

At first glance, really, who in Hell knows what this picture means? However, it leaves viewers thinking "What is the story behind this image?"
The sky and colours give it a sense of loneliness, or perhaps a plan that has gone awry. This anatomy of the skeleton is very precise, and the dimensions of the overall picture look as though it reaches out to you for help.
Personally, it reminds me of the ending to Mortal Kombat 4, where the champion finally defeats Shinok, and receives his/her boon. (except this skeleton isn't being flushed down a toilet)
"Please, don't let me fall."
What do you think?

i love it! it reminded me of the tower card in the tarot deck.
and that card means a change is acoming soon.
and there is not much we can do to control this change so hang on tight and enjoy the ride.
then there's the crows(?) to me they are crows and they are messengers, maybe a message we should have heeded?
then we got the fire and oh how it is full of our inner demons, waiting to torment us.
oh yeah i can see a few different scenarios here in this one art piece
a great job!( as this is what art to suppose to do-lol)

Falling to your death is the worst way to die in my point of view, because you practically see your life flash in front of your eyes, well, torture is also bad, but falling, I've had a lot of experiences. Being forced into bungee jumping once, not a good experience, then a roller coaster ride, and forced into free falling, yeah, my heart can't take anymore falling XD but this is great!

Gostei muito da aprte técnica e da questão do desfoque nas partes móveis do esqueleto, e não sou favorável a colocação do rastro pois ficaria sem sentido na visão geral, pois o rastro da imagem é característico pela imagem feita em baixa velocidade, e assim ficaria entendido que a queda do esqueleto foi capyurada em velocidades de obturação de 1/1.3.

Como no geral estamos falando de composição e não de foto simplesmente, posso dizer, no meu modo de analisar o trabalho, que a colocação do desfoque nas partes móveis foi a jogada de mestre, porém, o que poderia ser mais definido é o fogo, que daria mais intensidade a trama.

Excelente cores e detalhes....Parabéns....!!!

Grande abraço

opa...mto obrigado pelo elogio man! fico feliz que vc gostou...realmente esse desfoque foi o tema do debate. uns gostaram e outros nao...mas se for para p/ ver a verdade...o que vc falou tem todo sentido. e realmente o fogo poderia ter sido trabalhado melhor. na verdade eu nem iria colocar, mas eu acabei colocando de ultima hora só p/ agregar valor a imagem. enfim! é vivendo e aprendendo! :-)

abração p/ ti man....boa semama

Valeu Miguel.
Esse tipo de trabalho é polêmico mesmo, e trabalhar com sensação é complicado porque de 20 pessoas, 18 irão ter uma visão diferente cada um.....isso é a arte, que difere da propaganda, onde TODOS tem que ter a mesma impressão final......por isso é uma arte.
Quando fiz o comentário do fogo, não é que não gostei, pelo contrário, gostei bastante, mas se ele fosse mais definido iria dar a sensação 3D sem precisar de óculos específico.....faça o teste ai no seu original e verá o contraste que dará.....hehehehe.
Grande abraço meu camarada.

onírico...!

mas não sei se gostei tanto do embaçamento nas partes mais próximas do esqueleto, apesar de saber que isso foi proposital pra dar a ideia de movimento.

PSHoudini Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012   Digital Artist
pois eh, fiz o test com o esquelato sem o embassado e com o embassado e eu tambem nao sou mto fa de alterar mto as figuras principais, mas tinha certeza que eu receberia mto mais contras do que pros se eu deixasse sem o movimento....lol....mas tambem concordo com vc

:iconmauriciokanno:
MauricioKanno Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
bem, mas se for pelo movimento, acho que seria legal dar um levíssimo rastro tb entao, não só o desfoque... assim como tá, parece mais que a gente tá olhando pra figura e focalizando o fundo dela, e não a frente, o que é meio estranho de se pensar.

:iconpshoudini:
PSHoudini Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012   Digital Artist
verdade...mas eu tentei dar o rastro mas como ele ta caindo em nossa direção, o rastro estaria atras dele. fiz uns testes e nao gostei..hehehe...e se for ver, eu usei o gausin blurr sí na mao dele pq tá mais proximo, e o resto eu usei o radial blur p/ dar movimento. mas quem sabe na proxima

I've been looking everywhere for this! I mean, I've seen it, but at the time I wasn't signed in, so I couldn't fave this or anything. This picture is amazing! :boogie:
I feel like this has some kind of meaning to it, but it isn't totally clear in some ways just what the meaning is. But the way that skeleton seems to be reaching out at me, almost like some plead for help, combined with the angle, the flames, the color of the sky...maybe his (or her?) plans had gone awry, maybe falling to hell...no matter what it's supposed to mean, the image is intense. Love the work!
