They look like they're burning! :fear: Sorry. I'm reading the texture as fire for some reason. :P

It seems symbolic in a way. Some neighborhoods don't even have them anymore.

How exactly did you make this? Well, however you made it, it's beautiful.

Ah, thank you! It's etching ink on a metal plate and then put through a high-pressure press. (:

Are those scratches, the white 'phonechords' or what they are named? Those work very well, imho :)

Yeah, they're supposed to be... my hands are just really shaky. Hah. Thank you so much. (:

I'm not sure what to make of those loose wires between the pylons, but other than that it shows a definite progression from your early examples of the same composition.

limnides Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010   Artist
and it still needs to progress a bit further, I think. 'm really not as pleased with it - there isn't enough dynamic space between the objects... they kind-of all mesh together into one mess of texture.

It's my lack of ability to hold a steady hand that's to blame for the loose wires. I don't really know how I could go and fix that. Hah. Remind me to never pursue a career that requires deft hands. I'd make a terrible surgeon. :c

Yeah, this would have been improved with either more negative space to the right or a third, distant pylon in the background to the left. I would assume there's no real way of changing the wires in this version, but what you could do in future is use string as guides? I d'know, I'm not sure on how these are processed.

You're too short to make a surgeon anyway, you'd need a stool just to get at patients; and given your track record with steps, that'd only ever end in disaster.

Ahaha. There actually is a third pylon in the distance. Perhaps if I tried scanning the piece in rather than photographing it, I could be able to bring that out a bit more. I'll have to wait 'til after the art show, though.

The string guide may work. Next time I'm in the printshop I'll give it a go.


If I fell in, I'd get lost. ):

I can see that but it's lost in the border. The perspective drop-off needs to be sharper, then. Pulling the first pylon in from the edge so it's equal with the space from the top edge would fix that.

I absolutely love this. Completed wishlisted. The different textures really create an ambiance. The mono color also adds to this dreary mood; fantasy within the mundane.

You did a fantastic job in the composition here; everything is broken up well. I love it.

Did I say that enough? I love it.
