hello, i love your work, i have a question about how you intended the composition with those 3 blocks in the ground , why they are not symmetrical with the picture? i can notice the weight of the image balancing towards right a lot ,but then again the sigh follow back the diagonal of the arms to the vertex with boxes and then to the right and up again to the smoke and right hand by this displacement i mentioned , i this intentionally or i am over-think it ? XD

i really think your are a truly artist

You are one of the few people here on dA I would truly call an artist! And one of the very few people it is worth to watch continuously.

Damn, your style is unique and I am deeply impressed by your (seemingly) never ending creativity. I actually wonder if you earn your money with it?

In any case, this work is brilliant.

Isn't this vector then? Great work though!

Yes, it's all vector. It was removed from the vector section by an admin who didn't know what they were doing.

that is a BRILLIANT representation of music and voice. At least I'm hoping that was the intention of the piece. Anyways... I wish was able to envision something that beautiful.

:iconnyctopterus:

Thank you. That is what it's representing, yes, but that's not what it means (which is a secret, because I am a secretive bastard).

I am completely aware that this is all vector, but the black gaseous object fools me to think that it is not. I think that's what is making this picture stand out very much

I am enjoying the bright color of the person against washed out colors in the background; it gives very unique focus to the dancer/singer

the black gaseous object is still cool

great work!

Did you intentionally make the scenery behind her look like it's painted on some sort of cloth? She looks like she's on a stage anyway. I love it how the colors aren't as muted as usual in this one. And all the other little details, of course. Awesome. *pleased sigh*
Reply
:iconnyctopterus:
nyctopterus Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2007
Yeah that was intentional. It was inspired by some of Walter Sickert's stage paintings.

Wow.
This is beautiful - I love the concept as much as I love the realization. The whole thing is really dark...I love the shadows of her legs behind her dress.

You've captured what it is to perform. =]
