When I first saw this piece... I was shocked. Choked by overwhelming emotion. The simplicity of the image, the familiarity of the subject... it all came together in a new prophet. It's taken me some time to be able to respond to this work in anything beyond an emotional fashion. I am especially fond of the details, ALL of the details. The textures of the stone walls, the fuzzy post-apocalyptic char of the train, the subtle variation of shades describing the supplicants in worship... and zee Captain, limned in holy fructose... I am inspired. I love the choice of positioning and gesture for zee Captain, naturally assuming a place of confidence and leadership so effortless and graceful in a way. I really like this piece and I always look forward to more Romantically Apocalyptic. I could keep going and going, but I think I will stop now.
You call that groveling? You're barely bending over! But in all seriousness, this is a most inspirationally delicious piece with Zee Captain being bathed in the golden light of lemonade! My new desktop image!
First of all, the colours; the way in which the light and dark contrast one another are beautiful, the work blends together very well but each entity is also very well defined. The use of "sunlight" flowing into the area really helps to create a certain mood in the work that can almost be called hope, an inspirational moment.
I assume that you were aiming for either a pastel or water colour look for this piece? The bluring of certain textures and characters really fits in with the false background.
