Hopefully, on seeing this, people who watch me on a regular basis will say 'wow, thats a heck of lot different from his usual shit'.

Thats certainly what I said when I had the idea. The render came about after wanting to do something that *wasn't* red or blue on a black background which is what most abstracts, my own included. seem to be.

This was about the vibe, about the atmosphere, about the inspiration and most importantly about the feel.

Unusually for me, the vector 2D took me ages to get right. the render was dead simple really, with only minimal work in photoshop, so the rest of the brushing needed, for once, to be subtle or it would ruin the piece. So, I guess you can say I'm dead chuffed with the result ;)

Most of the inspiration came from Devin Townsends 'Infinity' album. Not listened to this in a while and he is one of my fav artists. Check the album out, its genius.

"wow, thats a heck of lot different from A LOT usual shit"

Blured and lighten up on the edges, light colored, high complex shapes, use of WHITE instead of black or blue, no "sparks" or "flashes", no exaggerated perspective ...

great picture :+fav:

Yes indeed it is very different. I love the organic look of it like roots of a very tall tree reaching down to get water. And the colors are much more cheery than what you usually do. All in all, very nice work.

Thats what i thought when I saw this it is definatly better than most your abstract work. No offence but I didnt like your prevouse style Though i would prefer if there was a bit less objects in this picture and the white is refreshing..
less is more as demonstrated superbly by this artist [link]

that is different. the title seemed really appropriate for the feeling i got when i saw it in full view. it has a very intimate, muscle and sinue look to it. the muted olive green sorta reminds me of blades of grass, which i didn't link to the more passionate connotation of the title. nice piece.

I actually like the brightness and subtle colours in this piece. I might suggest widening your artistic horizons to include pieces like this on a regular basis. Its always good 2 see something different from the deviants I watch.

This is very cool. To me it feels so organic. I am a fan of a lot of contrast in pictures, this does not have a lot of contrast. However you have done such a great job on this, the limited tonal range actually works extremly well in creating the atmosphere in this piece. Great work Zilla. I suggest try more stuff that will make us cry out loud 'wow, thats a heck of lot different from his usual shit!'
