Can you elaborate further? I must have missed something, but I only see an afro american kid in a captain america suit stepping in on a bully who's on to a whimpier nerd kid? Whats racist about one kid stepping in for another kid on a bully?

Great peice of work, I love the stylization you got going as well.

Sorry pal, but I think that you're going in a too negative way in a positive message. When I saw this work for the first time the first thing that came to my mind was "Protect the weaker, even in the face of a greater danger", really, it reminds me hope and altruism, not racism... in the way that you say, if I put 3 white guys it's was supposed to be everything ok for you? Or if the bully was a black dude, it was going to be racist too because de agressor it's a black person? Or worst, if the nerd was the black one, the racist message it will be "black people are weak"? For me, thinking in that way is racism. Sorry if I offended you, but I really don't think that there's a hidden racism message in here.

Okay then, so i must have completely misunderstood the picture. And i thought it's supposed to be funny - something like an editorial cartoon, a caricature.

Perhaps the not funny but most serious positive message is not well elaborated here. What about an old, socially disadvantaged person instead of the white frightened kid, having then more attributes than just the body size and the skin colours.

I certainly respect you as a highly skilled artist, but this one is staying a controversial piece in my eyes, which is definitely not my negative mind..

I am in awe. The quality is so great that you are completely taken into the moment and feeling of the shot. It takes a while to begin to notice the poses are amazing and the lighting is perfect, not to mention the models are filled with life and character.

It's not too often that I forget what I'm looking at when browsing 3d images. Congrats on such a wonderful piece!

Peace!

Peace!

My critique has nothing to do either with your work, or with you as a person (especially not when having adapted the piece), but also not with my personal feelings. Itís concerning a concept which could raise imo angry letters to an editor as a standalone cartoon without context.

The work nonetheless technically outstanding, and from this point of view congratulations on the award!

Wishing you all the best!

A very well deserved award. Congratulations!
