The intensity of her stare sends out the message of aggression, making up for the tiny lack of brightness in color, which I feel would've made it more dynamic, even in the silence of the painting. The anatomy is perfect as usual but with almost the same old techniques. However, the techniques always work. I love how the blotches carve a mobile story out of her, especially by blending into the background. The white strokes are fresh, separating the emotion of the face from that of the background. So far the best image of a heroine, to me. Great job!
I was walking a few mornings ago, and heard a song of Uppermost called Revolution. I bought it as soon as I arrived home and saw this as the cover art, but didn't know it was yours. Tonight, I finally saw this piece, and I have been following you for years!!! SOOOOOO COOOOOOOOL! I have to say, this was an amazing connection in my life. You do amazing work! Much <3
I have looked into these eyes before. They destroyed my home and over 1600 others. They tried to kill me three times that I can remember. We saved the homes we could but she never gave up. It took us sixty-four days to drive her away for good. I know these eyes and will see them in my dreams for the rest of my life. She is the Bastrop Complex Fire and she is the most beautiful yet terrifying creature I have ever met. I will never forget her nor can I ever forgive her for the lives she took. So beautiful.
I just find it funny that I found you on youtube yesterday, then was looking for the uppermost song saw the album art and saw no connection, then came to your deviantart today and saw this and thought it was a funny coincidence. : D Amazing work by the way!
