First of all, no, this has nothing to do with Adam :B


I'm glad to have redone this. It's Keith's concept, and in his mind the piece featured a man, in lieu of a woman. It's certainly an inspiring process to delve more into males, which I feel are far more challenging to "control", in terms of conveying emotion.


There's an annoying blue line running down the background to the left, which I have no idea came about and cannot fix in any practical way.

:pissedoff:

So I'll just leave it be.


In person, surprisingly, the piece looks quite dynamic viewed vertically, with the man at the bottom. I tried, however it doesn't have the same effect on the screen.


Thank you for looking, and hope you enjoy :iconkissmeeplz:

You know what I'm like.. maybe not adam but he is an avatar "Eden itself is not a place but a mind shift.. bad job? bad friends? bad relationship? focus on what you want and give space to what you don't.. this world is transient, if you can not resolve don't spend eternity in misery.. baby steps and get you closer to what you actually want.. without love and happiness you as as well be dead. Seek it... Find it" beautiful work from a beautiful person.

I like the concept behind this and the way you draw the male body and how you've managed to divide it into two different worlds as it where it's like he's trying to reach the other, I also admire the way you paint ;)

I look forward to seeing more from you, because you're a inspiration to me :)

very well controlled lines that makes up this sensitive art as one that could feel this in the heart. Reminds me of 'art deco' design where in this there is that holding on or holding back the strength of a force that has to be understood. I like this very much. :heart:

I was doing meditation a few minutes ago and I was not able to concentrate because your painting kept on popping in my head but each time it was looking less and lessto the original. So I just stopped what I was doing and i putted some random music on my laptop it was Coldplay's song 42... The first lyrics of this song are; "those who are dead are not dead there are just living in my head. And scince I have fell for that spell I am living there as well" and I got a flash "Vast Populat" again, and the second after I had a totally differnet paintig in my mind. I cant recall if it look like the one that i was seeing a the end of my meditation sesseion but I can tell you that you got me a hell of an inspiration... and I am anxious to show you the finish result !!!

Anny way! have a good day and your welcom for the comments !!!

Ahh, it's been a while since I've been by. I love this. That blue line does not bother me at all; to the contrary, I think it adds to the work, which subtly borders on a collage style.
