Incredibly detailed image, filled with the chaos and loss of person. A truly heartfelt, heartbreaking image.

To add more depth to this image, I know two men whose wives went through early onset Alzheimers, both have written about their experiences from the inside.

Robertson McQuilkin:


Harold Burchett:

The struggle and love they showed in the watchmaker's maze was amazing. Can their experiences
on the inside of Alzheimers, help you?

Wow what an incredible piece!

Very inspiring, specially for the amount of detail and the stunning composition!

I also couldn't avoid to comment on the image's description too! Commonly one would think that it wouldn't affect how you see an image but this is the live proof that a few words can raise the overall feeling of the art!

Beautiful as always Tony!

Stunning piece!!
I had interpreted it the other way around, with the machine symbolizing the disease's inexorable increase as time goes on and pumping away all the memories, environment and personality of the man with those big scary pipes while he is progressively losing his strength to resist.
But I think that whichever way we chose to interpret this painting, it is absolutely awesome, or should I say horribly awesome... ;-)
It feels like you have sort of put your guts into it.
While not being gory or anything like that, I think that, as you watch the painting, and all the wonderfully rendered details and atmosphere, you slowly realise that this work is at once frightening and fascinating in a subtle but powerful way.
I find this aspect very interesting and classy. And all that generates genuine admiration for the artist who has managed to put so many artistic and emotional elements into this painting. And the graphics are truly magnificent! You are really gifted!!
IMHO, the significance of your work here is really deep and touching, conveyed in a superbly graphical way, it goes to the core of humanity itself. Masterful!

Strong work! Keep up your work!

Can you show and tell a few words about lighting setup in this scene?

Impressive ! Lot of details in an interesting composition, a good use and integration of the 3D tool. Bravo !
Keep it up!

Post Good job

I like the image, but I want to add my thoughts on the subject, since my mother is affected by Alzheimer as well.
I never considered it a punishment or a negative disease. On the contrary I consider it a blessing for her, for one reason.
When my mother was still 'with us', she used to say that what she hated most about diying is to leave your beloved behind; how painful that is, and she hoped to be able to meet again in the afterlife.
Now this disease has given her the opportunity to let go of each and every single memory, little by little, leaving this world in perfect peace of mind and soul. I know that she loved us very much, she has been a beautiful mother, gentle and caring, and I will never forget, but inside of me, that's a relief to know that she will not suffer passing away, leaving her beloved behind, without any regret or nostalgia...
That said, I'm sure we shall meet again, in the next life, with no memory of all that happened, and start over new, a brand new life!
Love & peace to everyone.

ramonesFAN ... thanks for the comment and I am sorry to hear about your grandfather.

Jacob Potts ... thanks for the info about those books, my wife is actually doing volunteering work helping older people and some of them have Alzheimer, so I think she will dig into those books since she became interested in knowing more.

Sheff ... lighting is relatively simple, just couple of cooler area lights and one warmer area light just on top of character.

Dernhelm ... thank you for your interpretation, I love when people see different story in my images, that means that I got viewer to think, which should be the point of every art, I think. As you said pipe that is connected to his head is actually pumping away his memories and his essence, and the mechanism is time itself, but you can interpret it as disease also.

airun71 ... I was actually thinking about the same thing when I was working on this image, how when you have Alzheimer you slowly forget about this world and in the end you leave in peace, compared to having a clean mind and being conscious while you are dying. I am sorry to hear about your mother.
