Fly by lucid-light Fly by lucid-light
Software used: Apophysis

I feel like screaming, I want to fly but something's holding me.

EDIT February 15, 2012: On the concept.
Many people find the concept dull or not very original.
It "just" expresses my current state of mind. I have autoimmune thyroid disease which affects my daily life.
I say I wish to fly but actually I want a lot less. I just want to be healthy and strong again.
So the shapes basically describe the longing to be free and the illness that holds me. Colors are mix of resignation and fierce anger.


Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! :rose: It means a lot to me.

First, the pro's: I find the detail in this piece of art outstanding, the color pallet you chose is beautiful, the cool colors mixing the with warms in a very smooth form. Also The bold lines make this very interesting, my eyes don't stop looking around the picture, as well as the mix of light and darks.

Now, the con's: I'm failing to see the point in this picture. Though I do find the technique and time put into this astounding, I can't tell what's going on. I understand it's about flying, and I see the feathers, but I do not see the connection within this. What's going on in the picture seems a bit random, the rings and the detail inside the feathers.

What to improve on: Still, the concept of the picture is nice, I have a view bones to pick. What makes something fun to look at is the concept of the triangle, where you have one main point and two supporting points in a picture to keep the view entertained and enchanted. In this picture, I only found two, the main circle that comes at me and the white in the upper right hand corner.

Let's not forget the main focus point. Though detail is nice and entertaining, there comes a point where it can be a bit too much. For example, if you surround a fairly "plain" portion of the picture with intricate detail, that focuses on it and doesn't overwhelm the viewer.

I hope this helped, and I hope you continue to do amazing art such as this.

I was brought to your picture by how beautifull it was. It is very original. Your use of a lot of the colder colors and a few warmer colors towards the middle. It gives off the feeling of falling leaves to me personaly. I love the use of purple in this picture it gives off a very bold but also soft feeling. All the curves if the shapes bring focus on the painting not leting the viewers eyes go astray. How it gets dimmer and darker toward the edges not only brings the viewers attention to the center of the peice bt it also gives the feeling of mystery. Darkness and light if done right can be the most mystifying thing and i feel as if you have done that right. This picture leaves the viewer with pictures of fantasy and mystery, not only that but it also reflects the madness of everything always moving and changing. It is a very Very nicely done piece. Great job :)

  I admit I'm not familiar with the program you used but; I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS O_O  I wish it was a stained glass window in my home--I could stare at it all day *A*  It seems like something beautiful is blossoming ad reminds me of flowers, life, and leaves 8 )

  I'm sorry you have an auto immune disorder; I understand those are SUPER painful and I totally understand what you mean about wanting to be healthy again :hug:  I personally had endometriosis, a condition that works a lot like cancer but isn't (Due to medical technicalities in what starts 'cancer' being the mitochondria in the cell, and endometriosis isn't caused by that, but this is where the difference begins and ends), which began when I was 11; They found it at 25 and refused to give me the surgery I needed--I was scared to get it, too.  I was in so much pain I was looking at buying a wheel chair.
  The reason why I didn't--was someone else I knew, already in a wheelchair, from an auto-immune condition.  They, too, are in massive pain--but there's no surgery this person can take a risk on and have a chance at a life again; And I had a feeling if there was?  They would take that risk.
  I got the surgery; The odds were against me and my doctor didn't want to do it saying it wouldn't work.


  It worked!


  It's been two years and I'm still struggling to regain my footing; Trust me, you DO sort of feel like you're flying--or at least as if you're barely touching the ground!  It's like learning to walk, or as if someone left gravity on 'extra low' wherever you are!  You feel so light--but there's stumbles, too; I have to rebuild my leg muscles, which I'm still doing.



  I dunno if surgery or treatment is an option for you; But I shared this with you to let you know--some of us here get it--in a way that people who have never been in that situation don't.  My situation is over (Well--there's always a risk it can result, but so far, so good), but it was only because of persons like yourself that I had the courage to go through with it.  Perhaps you aren't "meant" to be cured--but to be an inspiration to the rest of us who could be, but are allowing fear to hold us back.  Seeing this, I feel like you're desperate to dance--and if there was a surgery, even with the smallest odds?  You'd take those odds; Because you have nothing to lose 8O

  Also, I thought this was original and unique, so, maybe it's just a lack of being familiar with this kind of art, but I think it's amazing--and so are you 8 )

Thank you for sharing your story with me, I hope that you will recover fully eventually, or as fully as possible in your situation. I agree that sometimes only people in similar situations can truly understand each other, so I really appreciate your comment :heart:

This is absolutely stunning. I love the stained glass look it has, combined with the flower/leaf patterns, the beautiful colors, and the shadows that make the colors pop. It is just gorgeous

it's an absolutely stunning art work!
То, насколько эта работа поразила меня , я, к сожалению, могу выразить только на родном языке.
Сочетание цветов просто потрясающее! В этой работе гармонично абсолютно всё, начиная с композиции и идеи, заканчивая освещением, подбором цвета , подачей. Кажется, я могу смотреть на нее бесконечно! Это просто шедевр La la la la Кроме того, картинка кажется живой и динамичной! Там происходит какая-то "химия"!!!

I like your motifs and how you carry them out. They're kind of abstract but static at the same time - I call that magic. I hope you'll keep that magic all the time but still develop in your abilities. 

Your "Leaving Home, Coming Home" even helped me at school. You're awesome!
