Satellite by spoonbard Satellite by spoonbard
Been working a while on this one. Originally, I wanted it to be super detailed and really well rendered colouring wise, but despite the detail I put into the pencils, they ended up looking quite simple, and the simple colours matched them nicely.
The theme is really free association. As I drew, ideas came into my head, I modified them, added other elements, and eventually settled on the word 'satellite'. I guess it's about the self.
Not sure what more to say... it's a bit of an odd one out.

Satellite by ~spoonbard is refreshingly original and thoughtful, and shows great skill in linework and anatomy. Take a look and enjoy ! ( Suggested by pixieface and Featured by nighty )

This is basically perfect in every way. I love the colors, the style, and I think where the shins connect to each other is my favorite part. :giggle:
I sort of wish the handle of the key had a pretty shape, but I don't think that really matters. This turned out so well.

:) Thanks so much! I think you're right about the handle actually, that's something I hadn't considered. It would help the key look much more classic.

I love the detail you put into the hand, how it appears to be unraveling and yet whole at the same time. And how the girl appears to have been impaled from behind by a key to herself.

It's a very interesting piece.

I have no idea what it means! It was just one of those things where the images put themselves together and I just let it happen.

the feeling that I get from this piece when I look at it is that someone is coming unraveled and they are trying to save themselves in the end. That's the feeling I get. It's a very appealing piece. The colors and and the balance within it really seem to bring me at ease. I really do enjoy this piece a lot and I Hope to see more like it.

I'm a bad watcher for taking this long to realize this was here. and congratulations on your DD. -though personally i think there are more deserving pieces lurking in your gallery-
I love the floating feeling of this piece, and the escheresque ignoring of reality.

very interesting concept!
i like how the 2 girls are kinda like a mirrir image, and the key-hole really pulls the pic togather.

actually, Satellite fits the pic really well as a title.

nice job!

This looks totally awesome! First of all I get referencial ideas to Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence. I think it's a bit of the colorpalette and what I can see of their faces. The whole symbolism with the key through the looks is very creative!

Keep up the awesome work!
