feel drained of energy after completing this
but it was worth it:)
anyway i thought since id refereced the flowers from Forget me not's i might as well call it that, it also fits with the overall mood i think
all created in Photoshop 7 :)

Beautiful image! Tell us more. What prompted you to paint it? What were your goals?
This is really art. Now tell us what's at the heart of the artist!
08-21-2003, 12:45 PM
wow, industrial romantic tragedy......amazing :)
08-21-2003, 01:52 PM

amazing work... and nice idea.
08-21-2003, 02:11 PM
Awesome Cyber Grateful Dead feel to it. I like it alot!
08-21-2003, 02:22 PM
I guess we're past visual crits on this one. So I'll go into my artsy-fartsy talking outta my ass portion.
I see a car accident with two victims. Their robotic form represents our modern lifestyle that keeps us moving at a mechanical rate (hence transportation accident), stealing our humanity. But their angel-like wings represents their salvation and ultimate spritual humanity.
Was that BS or what? Great drawing!
08-21-2003, 02:23 PM
Profound. Beautiful. :love:
08-21-2003, 02:29 PM
Totally awesome !!!!
It has that special dramatic touch...
luv it :thumbsup:
reeks of awesomeness!
Really good pic u got there, nice contrast with the blue flowers, the lightning and the reflections are perfect. I´m just curious....what is the big thing on the left side?
08-21-2003, 04:10 PM
This is lovely! No wonder you feel drained, you put so much into it! :love:
08-21-2003, 04:38 PM
awesome drawing and compisition
08-21-2003, 05:03 PM
VERY COOL! i LIKE THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE DARK METAL AND WEEDS AND THE BRIGHT BLUE FLOWERS. :thumbsup:
holy crap, im stunned by this amazing piece! Its breathtakingly gorgeous, to say the least! awesome work m8!
08-21-2003, 06:44 PM
Very nice idea.
The part I liked most was the fact that I could recognize the female and the male inmediatly. It has a lot of soul.
Great work! :thumbsup:
08-21-2003, 06:49 PM
I think breathtaking is the word. You have some great stuff on you site too. But this was definatly worth the time spent
08-21-2003, 07:16 PM
nothing more to say.
08-21-2003, 07:32 PM
Best use of robots I've seen in a very long time. Very emotional as well. Nice stuff!!

08-21-2003, 07:53 PM
Great piece! the theme is very original and well painted.
08-21-2003, 08:00 PM
This changes my life.
08-21-2003, 10:56 PM

great work it is!!
08-22-2003, 09:27 AM
I never knew it was possible to do such on photoshop. How long did it take ya?
08-22-2003, 02:05 PM
Could you explain the basic techniques you used to create the awsome image. Perhaps a short tutorial....
08-22-2003, 02:52 PM
laying it on pretty thick, eh? While I can't tell exactly what it all means, two dead people in love turned to machines (or something along those lines) speaks pretty loudly. What I find ironic (or prophetic) is that you made this on a computer.
Anyway, really nice work.
08-22-2003, 03:01 PM
I am very impressed with your work.
I'm interested to know if you've got any suggested tutorials, or texts on working methods. Hopefully I'll be able to crank out some cool work soon since I'm taking a Digital Illustration class.
08-23-2003, 12:58 AM
I'm such a happy camper that the 2D pool of talent is actually shaping this forum into something I've always wanted... diversity. Great imaginative piece, you give a new meaning to fallen angel. Can't say much more

08-23-2003, 08:34 AM
whoa.......that picture even made me feel something. i got this weird feeling as soon as i saw it and i liked it. They kinda look like T-800's to me but with emotion. Did the T-800 inspire u in anyway?
08-23-2003, 02:23 PM
awesome work, full of meaning, but speaking about 2D, maybe the water could be black to add contrast to the image, but the way you did the pose, not so sad.. I really like it :)
08-23-2003, 07:35 PM
Incredible work! This combination of a mechanical skeleton and the nature in background first reminds me of the contrast employed in Steven Stahlberg's Fair And Snake.
08-23-2003, 09:09 PM
Nice work, one thing though. I think the picture is a little bit out of balance, it hangs to much to the right. I think u should add some more detail on the left as well as some more light. or u should extend the picture to the right were it merges to the same dark color as the left side. I mean, it can be nice when a picture hangs to one side, but this is too subtile to add something extra and still so strongthat it was the first thing I noticed.
08-24-2003, 05:08 AM
I have one major crit, and it's a mistake that a lot of people seem to make on this forum.
How are we supposed to really appreciate the work when we can't see the whole thing on screen at once? It's too big.
Scrolling around to see the various bits is really, really irritating, and to be honest, it leaves me disliking the piece overall.
08-24-2003, 08:02 AM
Hello there , no wasnt dead . . . but that last coment made me feel i need to come back .
Spike, what you call the mistake in this case is something i personnally call "fine work" why so ?? that image is for sure at high acceptable resolution !!! you find this irritating to scroll the pic around but . . . you have tone of tips not to do that, last generation explorer usualy let you resize the pic on the fly , plus you can download it localy to your pc , and resize to an acceptable resolution for ya . . . for sure it will still ask you to do something to appreciate that image or any other pic you cannot completely see on your screen. Last thing i donno what rez you are running on your screen mine is actually 1280*1024 which is really far to be the highest rez commonly use in the cg artistery world. And even at 1280*1024 the image is still fullscreen . . . so . . . .
Finally please dont blame at US to give the comunity the possibility to appreciate pics in high rez. But be sure ill peronally post a stamp format image next time for ya to be happy with us all . . .
END of transmition . . . needed to tell wont argue more on this . . .
back to my cavern
And nothing more to say than other people on that work. It's gorgeous !

that image was created at a resolution of 6000 by 4800 pixels...this was so i could fit in the amount of detail that i wanted to, it would be a shame to lose most of that just so few people on small monitors could see it all on there screen.....if you go to my website you will find a much smaller version:p
thanks for the comments Haddes:)
08-24-2003, 09:17 PM
I am sure that all of us are aware that not everyone on this forum has the top of the line systems and equipment. We do our very best with what we have to work with, and "push the envelope" with our tools and abilities as hard as we can. When we succeed, glorious things like "Forget Me Not" happen.
Thank you Daniel. The piece is beautiful. You've earned your kudos.
Now, to all the rest of us, myself included, we'll do everyone much better service if we quit whining and griping about nit picking details and get back to being constructive and creative.
End of lecture. Thank you Mr. Moderator.
Good job~~!! :applause:
08-26-2003, 04:53 PM
I would call this Sadness...a lilbit' weird idea - but as 4 me - I love that! :thumbsup:
08-30-2003, 04:59 AM

08-30-2003, 10:13 AM

04-23-2004, 09:49 PM
usually i dont comment,
but this is a fine piece..it evokes feeling & seems to have a story about it, and makes my imagination run,
I also i like the flowers color contrast to the robots.
very very nice. i tip my hat to you.
04-24-2004, 05:57 PM
Absolutely stunning. Now on my desktop! Any chance of a link to download a larger version? The posted version isn't quite large enough for my resolution, and I'd hate to stretch it. I looked on your website for a larger version but it seems to be offline at the moment...
Fantastic job, you should be VERY proud. I hope you plan on publishing this!
05-24-2004, 03:07 PM
