Figment


Here's my entry, my attempt at a Yerka style inspired surrealist image. Yerka's work is a pleasure to view. To me, it is whimsical and sublime in nature, as well as cleverly designed and composed--as can be seen in his 'visual pun' work. Trying to emulate a well evolved artistic style is a heavy task. I think I touched on it a little bit here. The image was done in PS using some elements modeled and rendered in Cinema 4d. The 3d elements include; the stuff inside the car cab, the owl-things clock face, castle, rear lights and dark-brown structure, compound-eye texture,bugs tongue, red locomotive-thing and the tree leaves. The blue car-thing and reptile parts are all PS painted.

Here’s a HIGHER RES IMAGE

If there are no cloud in the sky(maybe only gradient), this image will be perfect!!
because i think it is lack of empty space a bit.
just my opinion
anyway, this is the best one i've seen in this competition
regard .

hi

I im sorry im going to say this is just my opinion and i have to say it because i realize that is the impression im giving for the art , so mate dont be angry .
I think the camera angle is the most good of the scene the moment you capture as well , good color too , good work too but most in 2d wich is fine, but i have to say that has no originality , as you know that yerka in one of his pictures uses the train smoke and it convert into trees , that idea you have there is of yerka , and the other hand w ehave the car that is another idea that yerka , is just the same , so in conclusion the art and work you done is very good i have to say it ,but where is the original part ? the originall have to be all.That idea you put here is not new to me just a little things, so is very good but has no creative part invented by you , remeber is not just the colors light and texture basically is the idea , the creative part of the artist , is the same as yerka but diferent angle of camera , if you use this same technique with a diferent idea that no one put ever and its something new , sorry amazing work but no originality at all.

see? is just the basic same idea but with other colors and diferent car and diferent trees.
just for look is like a stolen idea of jerka thats why so impressive to me.
but i have to ask why you copy yerkas ideas and do not create something original?

HOLY YERKA!!!

What a knockout punch. I don't remember Yerka using that bright blue color... but damn... it doesn't matter. You've blown my mind, gained my respect, and destroyed my hopeful entry in one post. Everyone here knows how hard it is to to pull this look off... bravo.

p.s. I wish other people understood the challenge better and created Yerka pieces along this line. It is so fun to see a handful of real contenders step up.

Very nicely done - you've got the Yerka style and imagery pretty much spot-on!
