They Are Not Blind by JenZee They Are Not Blind by JenZee

Thanks :9 A lot of the detail got lost since it's a landscape-framed piece :(.

Finally I finished this... There's a progress pic in my gallery from almost exactly a year ago.... Yup. I hadn't worked on it for forever and lately decided I wanted to finish it :) This piece is vastly different from what it started out as lol. Hope you all like it :) I had fun with the lighting, but I really need to work on it :(. This piece made me realize just how little I know about lighting hehehe... Critiques/Comments welcome as always!!! It's great to be back!!! :hug:

I really like your choice of colors here :)
Seryia Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
For not knowing much about lighting back then, you sure did an amazing job creating everything. I love the combination of grey, green, orange, and yellow in the shading. When it's combined with the figure and the other elements it's an amazingly atmospheric piece. I could spend a ton of time studying all of the planes and angles. Yay for secondary light sources!

I could ask you a question?
what tools you used in the painter, more specifically?
krazykrista Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2009

This is amazing.
Can i ask about the story behind the image?
AzraelDX Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
this deviation has been dragged to my fav gallery because I think it represents how good you are and how much effort you put into your art.

wow! this is top stuff!
i cant pin-point it but this reminds of some of Stanislav Szukalski's works, ( & i mean that in a good way )
maybe its the lighting...

very evocative.

Fantastic, mystical. Very good paintwork!

Just how little you know about lighting my ass, you're doing well to me. This piece is very curious, I wonder about the two profiles beneath the woman, is she saying they aren't blind?
I love the waviness of the moon and though it is a landscape picture, there is plenty of detail to ponder over. ^ ^

krazykrista Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2007
Three cheers for Art Deco!

I don't know if it was intended or not, but it has a total Art Deco flair...something I haven't seen much of around here! Very, very lovely all-around. (Do more in this style!! :please: )

:+fav: of course! Nicely done.

beautifully done.

wow...the coloring is great!
KentDArnold Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2006
Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Its easy to miss some of the nicer bits in all the detail. Like the dual face the figure is sitting on. One can almost, but not quite, mistake the figure for being male. The color choice made it even more stunning. I can see why it took so long to create. Keep up the good work!
JenZee Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Gah! Sorry this reply is coming WEEKS late!!!! I'm somewhat backlogged with the reply thing >_<. Many apologies, and I'm very flattered that you enjoyed the piece :). I did want to keep the character somewhat androgynous, so that's really wonderful that you mention it! Thanks and sorry again!!!
KentDArnold Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2006
Dont feel bad, i'm just as bad about responding about things. I shouldnt be, i run several play by post games. So I know the importance of prompt responses, but hey, its all cool.

No artistic(IE drawing, painting, etc) talent on my end, save for having an eye for art. But, I can write. Working on a story now but ... havent been inspired to write on it for awhile.

I try to respond to images more often but ... I don't respond as much as I should.

Really great work.
JaimeGervais Featured By Owner May 12, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
The coolness factor on this one is un-freaking real. Absolutely love the overall composition and your self-critique on lighting. I believe that the lighting here is quite well done and the overall mystique of the pic is captured. Definite :+fav: :-)
