Daily Deviation

Given 2016-06-05
Nicotine dream by Rui-Abel combines pleasure and fatality of our favorite addiction using powerful effects and a well thought-out composition.  ( Featured by ErikShoemaker )
:iconskullgrin-140:
Very clever and frighteningly real.

This perfectly sums up the dangers of smoking and the effects it can have on the smoker, what stands out about this how the colors are presented here. Lots of uses of the colour red and how it's used in the foreground and background of the image, the hair which is a small part but also how it blends with the ashes of the cigarette and the burns on the paper but also how the lungs are burning in pain from the amount of smoke being exhumed and then blown out. Finally as well I love how the Skull is added into the smoke accurately symbolising the death of the smoker.

This is a pretty impactful image, creatively made but scary as well. The sort of image you'd see as a billboard.
What do you think?

Bravo pour ton D.D. ! Tu as été inspiré par nos publicités contre l'envie de fumer. Ton travail est remarquable ! As-tu pensé à l'utilisé dans une campagne anti fumer ? Tes effets sont magnifiques tout comme ton concept ! ;o)

Ravi que cela te plaise.
 Je ne fume pas et n'ai jamais fumé, c'était donc en effet une réaction au tabagisme.
Merci.

:wow: I hope that your artwork will speak to people : smoking  kills people, and they die in terrible agony during months if they are lucky,  or  during years of atrocious pain for the most of them.
