Consumed, Toni Bratincevic (3D)

Title: Consumed
Name: Toni Bratincevic
Country: USA
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay, ZBrush

At the time we were living in Croatia there was one old man living in an apartment below ours that had Alzheimer's disease. He would sometimes come to our doors in the middle of the night and try to unlock the doors thinking that it was his apartment. His daughter once told me he forgot who she was, and how he cut his bed with a saw for no logical reason. What a torture that must be, loosing yourself, all your memories, reason and logic. The essence of life is contained in those experiences we had over our lives, people we met and loved, and then this punishment came and took everything from him, stole his essence, his soul, and left him with just a shell of what he is not. There was more left of that old man in his daughter that in the body he was once populating. I will always remember you my unknown friend, you gave me power to create this piece of art, but I wish you never ignited this idea in me because that would mean that you spent your old days free of this suffering. You will live inside your loved ones until the day their time comes, but you will live inside this image forever.

Great work, and the inspiration adds another, deeper dimension to the image. That's what it's all about. Well done.

balistic ... thanks for the comment, so it looks like I am not getting old. How is it going in your new company? Doing any painting lately?

The details!!

As usual, your level of detail astounds me! I wish I had just a small amount of your talent! This piece and your explanation touched me! It reminds me of my grandfather who slowly lost his mind to Alzheimer's. It was so sad to look into his eyes and not have him remember me at all.

So few take inspiration from their on lives today. A touching story and an aptly touching image. I appreciate the wasting away and the time metaphor, and the tired feeling you were able to convey for the character. Bravo!

So...this is the victory we longed for.
