Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-20
:iconposhsingularity:
Wow, so many tactile textures here. Slick fabric, the wrinkles and folds, simultaneously jarring and soothing complexity depending on how close you look. Great material study!

My biggest concern is that the castle in the background gets totally lost and overwhelmed; I feel like you spent a lot of time detailing it, but it's kind of lost there. Then again, that might be an interesting metaphysical statement I'm missing :)

Having the shape of the legs lead into it brings me there, but my eyes jump right over it. Again, maybe intentional. But I think the lack of contrast may be a slight detriment to your composition, given the complexity of the rest.

Right now, all of your forms kind of blend into one large mass, and there's not a lot of negative and positive contrast to offset that.

I'm struggling with the overall composition; I feel like this is one of those pieces that's almost there with a really great balance, but you might have overdone it a bit (this is the pot calling the kettle black- I always overdo it). I couldn't say what to take out- it's like choosing only three flavours of ice cream for your sundae. You have so many great ideas going on here (the play with the noses and spheres and holes definitely isn't lost), it could really be two paintings- and maybe that's what this needed (a longer canvas).

If you expanded this to the left a little and brought out something really interesting in the bottom left corner, I think you could improve the composition quite a bit, which (for me) would give it a lot more impact. (easier done in the domain if digital art, of course)

Just wild conjecture here though.

Great piece!
