I Tree

Postby eddieblz » Fri Mar 21, 2014 9:16 am

I have a bizarre image here. I've decided to get away from digital and horror for a while. Get back to my roots. This is about where it sits on the canvas. Unsure if I should let it stand or give the eye's something to look at.

So far, It's a very cool picture, and an awesome looking concept.
I really like the extra details you added "inside" of the eyes, and the bark-y portions have a very nice "intensity' to it.
hmm... I bet the raven must love the fruit from this tree!
The fate of men, might weigh on me,
But I take that sin quite well,
Only cold wins, in the dark it seems,
But I hear there's warmth in hell...

A very imaginative eye-tree! I love how the tree sort of crooks around the eye. I don't think you should dissect
the larger eye like that - make your lines flow with the shape of your eye, not against. I do love it, though. Crisply
and interestingly drawn. Thank You, E

Eddie I like the creativity so far. My humble suggestion would be to turn the drawing on its side with the eyes facing up, and putting some sort of skull or face in the background with the eyes looking back at it in curiosity. I would also add more branches to the tree so that what you have is not floating. Can't wait to see what you come up with -dk

Roots seem to be a talon claw or else biting jaws. Powerful imagery.

Thanks everyone.
DK I didn't see your comment until after I put some more work into it or I might have turned it on it's side now I'm stuck with it this way. It does look better on it's side

Jen I'm not touching the image as it is but it's it's part of a bigger piece. I love mixing detail and simplicity.

E I agree about dissecting the eye but I didn't realize what I did until it was to late. In my inking's once I put it down I don't change it but I might do a variation on a new piece later.

Thank's Symphoneus the devils in the detail. LOL. I't makes it interesting to look at.

Thank's Rebecca, I guess that's my trademark, If I have one, Imagery and symbolism.

Thank's

Well here's the next installment

Oooh.. I love your stylized raven ..he's great!!! I like this addition too... I really like the fact that you have a lot of negative space actually.. it make the elements of detail so much more interesting... you have done a lot of work there, and I would hate for it to get lost amidst of too much going on. :)

This is an intriguing overall composiiton... Im digging it a lot... and its quite different from what you have been sharing lately.. refreshing!

Seeing that raven gives me some pretty happy giggles XD
I would suggest darkening the tree portion as compared to the other parts, as the eye beneath the raven is somewhat lost.

A growing feeling of tedium and paranoia invades my mind as I try to ignore the voices. Anyway I've done some additions to this.

Thanks E, But it looks like a bunch of really really good artists have joined the forum as of late. Really posting some nice stuff. I might have to hide my head in shame.

Don't you dare - your piece stands proudly next to all. How do you think I feel? I know there will
always be greater artists than myself but I still love what I do and can see that you do, too!

I think it works well standing on its own. Allowing the viewer to create what the eye is viewing in their own minds allows for a more interesting concept. I love the textured feel and detail in it.
