Not dead yet! 

And all the better, because there are so many more works that I want to draw/paint ASAP. 





- - - 
Many of the images I am pushing myself to draw are little more than curiosities that I treasured, hoping that one day I'll be capable of giving them a slightly better shape than those doodles that might as well be used to adorn the door of refridgerator. 

This curiosity that survived long enough to see the light of day started as a B&W silhouette on an educational poster within a classroom that was used to host education_about_society classes as per course of late elementary school program. 

The sum of elements is the same in both my memory of what the poster contained and the artwork of my production - after all, the goal of aforementioned visual aid was to provide cursory insight to the more gruesome models of how system/society/nation/country interacts with human units that create those collective bodies. 

Perhaps there was even something written underneath, but I only remember the amorphous blob of sentences and thesis, so I cannot quite reconstruct the whole lesson as it was precisely told by a laminated piece of cardboard.

Holy shit dude, the sense of scale is just staggering. How large is this piece in real life?

I doubt it would exceed 150 meters.  :)

That's quite the wide brush you've got.

Ah, you are asking about the format! Sorry, my mind got so cloudy at that part of the day.  


A bit larger than A3, though not by much. Wanted it to be a practice work, so I picked a format small enough to allow for mistakes.

Small enough? Most artists seem to vouch for large formats that way, so mistakes are unnoticeable when the piece is scaled down.

Do you mean small enough that you wouldn't mind starting over if something went arse-up?

Rather: small enough so I would get to see sooner how entirety of my technique and gimmicks work - and, in effect - get a quicker scope on what I need to correct. Larger format doesn't allow for such a 'trial period before full version'.

Damn, those things looks very creative. I'm shit at perspective.

That only requires a bit of practice to get a hold of. There are still quite a few settings/poses/perspectives that remain outside of my comfort zone and I know I have to rush in to try them out. :D
