what is your point of this image?

Thanks everyone!

What is my point...? Sorry Anne, but I don't understand the question... O_o' I know my english is not very good, so I don't catch what you want me to explain about? Is it my point of view about this work? If you want explanation, you could go to the machineflesh challenge section and have a look to my work in progress there. More stuff to read about!

I just would like to know what kind of message you mean to deliver through this illustration.
Is it a warning against human's crankish ambitions of evolutionary metamorphosis?

It is excellent artwork! Wonderful and dreadful.

Well, there wasn't, at the beginning, any intention of including a message in it. I use to start a project with main direction lines and then think in term of fonctionality, periode of time, materials at hand (for the characters), culture, etc. So, for this project, I started with the general idea of machineflesh hunters in a swamp environment. From there, I had to determine the creatures they would have to hunt. Then, I would have to determine their weapons, wich would confirm their aspects, etc. etc. So, it was like a reaction in chain in the process of conception.

Once it is delivered to public, it's very interesting to see how people interpret your work with their own vision. For my part, I consider this work more like an illustration than a piece of art with different meanings in it. I wasn't trying to make a critic but just something weird and unusual. I understand your interpretation and it could fit with the final result.

Thanks to have shared your point of you Anne :)

what i like about it is how deceptivly shallow the water seems. It's as if you would expect to be up to your waist in water, but then you notice the long legs of these creatures, and ground could be a hundred feet below.

Sorry for the poor resolution of the pict...!!! Can't see what goes wrong with it... Maybe the server recompress it in jpg... It looks terrible! O_o'

It's re-scaled.... Baaah!

I love the concept, and I love the limp pose of the human part of the machine at center. It's a little bit too blurred for my tastes, though. Still awesome....
