Just looking for some feedback before I post my ‘final image’. Bascially I just added some more detail, souls, corpses, and a little vegetation.

Story: The beauty of the dead bird’s ascending soul is all that the immortal mechanical monkey sees. He is unable to comprehend death - innocently fascinated with what happens when you squish little fuzzy things.

Basically, I wanted to create an image that gave a little tug to one’s emotions. A glimpse of the monkey’s blissful and innocent disregard for life contrasted against the darkness of his actions and the apparent lack of a concious. He unable to comprehend death - seeing everything as an eternal infant.

With a bit of feedback from my wife and friends, I decided to remove the small tree (it was too distracting), and shorten the image a bit - there was a lot of dead space above the focus.

I really appreciate all the guidance and encouragement. Hope you enjoy it, I did.

It is already good enough,I think adding more detial is meaningless,is detail enough
my suggestion is adding some blue reflection on the robots head, and that should be perfect
anyway thats really a awesome piece,amazing skill dude:)

Eric,

I just read your thread…congratulations on your marriage and finishing the challenge :beer:

This is a beautiful piece, one of the best in the challenge in my opinion. Your technique is impecable but what really gets me is the emotion you manged to portray. I really is a striking image.

Theres not much I can say that hasnt been said already. Good call on removing the small tree although I think you would have been ok with the overall length since the souls floating upwards would have made it ok. Either way, I think your final image is outstanding and definitely merits serious props. Awesome work! - Joel

Really great work, Eric. A wonderful attention to detail. (And your wife didn’t steer you wrong - I think the piece looks better without that small tree, too! :slight_smile: )
Congrats on finishing!
