Freedom of Thought

I guess my concept behind this piece was people following conformities easily and blindly, giving their own opinions second spot on the priority clock.

The left character is looking foward in time to its self, when it is not bound by social constraints.

The pipes leading into the first face, and the covered mouth are symbolic of the fed ideas and puppetry of the character, and the silence of the real thoughts. There are a few more symbolic guestures in there, but those are the main ones.

This came about through Photomanipulation, ink drawing, airbrushing, some 3D and texture scanning (the oranges again :D (Big Grin) ). I liked working with a large range of medium for this.

Comments welcome.

btw, there is also and acrylic painting of this drawing, but I don't have access to it anymore, and might not ever.

Reminds me of the classic cybernetic illustration (the cover to Pink Floyd's The Division Bell, basically), modified. I'm glad to see that the thought process behind it is in tune with that as well. The modifications to the image depicting the basis for all cybernetic communication (sender, message, receiver, feedback) is interrupted by various societal forces.

Good job. Glad to see you're still putting a lot of thought into your work.

Very nice work. I like the extensive symbolism and the way it is represented. I also really like the style of the faces and the strange details throughout the piece. Excellent.

I have been staring at this for a while now and I am moved by it. Had you just uploaded this without the story I think that I would have still been moved. None the less I like the way that you thought and I love the way that you express that in your art.
This one in particular.
You are such a inspirational artist.
Thanks for just being someone who puts his heart into things.
