Torn by niteangel Torn by niteangel
Torn . Apart
For depthCORE Verve





This is a very emotional piece from me. I haven't done any piece of art for 2 months and the feeling was very strange when I started a new one.

But suddenly something happened in my life about friends and love, and it was all very critical. The situation between me and one of my best friends changed and I was so hurt and confused. At the same time, I had some unpleasant discussion over depthCORE with other members, and their ignorance clearly annoyed me. Everything was so hurting and I was torn apart.

And I made this. The feeling of being torn apart was like the pulling of muscles, the detachment of belief inside me. The two parts of the images are so different, as the smooth pulled upper part is against the solid and sharp structure. They were together, emtwining, but now they are seprarated. It was painful.

But the light behind the area where the muscle is pulled apart symbolizes something more. While it may be leaving a wound, but the light can be intepretated as the pulling-back power. While something is hurt, anothe thing is back to heal it. It is the power of love in reality. She supported me and calmed me down, and she is like the light in this "wound", which is not dark or bloody. The light fills the gap, and the healing is also happening.

Luckily I am feeling much better now.

And really nothing special. Don't expect much from me please.

i admit, even if i adore vincents work, this is not really sooo good. i see no innovation as im used to see in your works :D its just like... random. well maybe i dont understand that much about what your aims are in this piece and my brain tells me "well he must have thought something while making it", but my eyes say "nooo! nooo! put it aside man! u cant do this to us". Seeing "Flux" they were a little more relaxed and didnt complain a lot, but this one... naaaah :x !

So well.. ;) I hope your future submissions will be more inspiring (your older ones certainly ARE!).

hmm If I am serious I don't like it. The colours suck. There is too much white in the brushing. The renders aren't blended too well. Only good thing is the direction and movement in the image. Well I mean not every image of one artist can be good. You other works are ALOT better.

Thats true.
You have done much better works, this one dissapoint me.

Its too chaotic and there is no real element wich can catch my eyes.
I missed some more Details like in the brushwork,
for my taste its too hard. It needs more light/dark parts.

Expecially the renders bother me. First, you cant really see much of them
cause of this chaotic in this piece and the dark part in the lower part.
Too standart and too much "overlay". They also dont really look like 3D.

Colours, hm. I dont really like that combination and too low saturation.

And last thing is the typo. You cant make typos. In every piece you make
your typo in the same way, like this:

"little text little text little text little text
little text little text little text

NAME OF THE WORK

little text little text little text little text
little text little text little text

NITE ANGEL

"

Dude, that sucks. And to place the typo horizontal
is for sure question of taste, but i hate that.

I hope next time you make better, maybe i could
help you. :)

Greetz,
Secroit.

Thanks for your comment, even it doesn't help me at all.

And yes, it is in low staturation, but did you ask why it was like that? As other people have commented, it represents depression and loneliness. It is the feeling of the art. The reddish brown color at the top means flesh, contrasting the green at the bottom which symbollizes life.

And for the typo, it is my signature, as everyone will have one eventually. I can't help you with that and I won't fucking change it too just for people's sake. And I don't spell my name like that.

Moreover, the little text means something. Buy a print and check that (hint: Recticore has all the machinery description there too and it's good to read that cos they ARE readable.)

Thanks for your comment, but I am disappointed at your spending so little time on this image of mine I suspect, and also at your not looking deeper into the image like the choice of colors and trying to understand why. To me it is like I don't like it, because I don't like it, fullstop. You don't even doubt and judge your position, or mine. If you can tell why it doesn't fit and how it can be better, THAT will be useful.

:)

Regards,
Vincent

I had some unpleasant discussion over depthCORE with other members, and their ignorance clearly annoyed me.

well yeah, you're always right, aren't you? everyone that has a different opinion from yours are inherently ignorant.

i can see a sense of depth in this piece, but in my opinion the streaks of lighting from the top down to the bottom kills it a little. furthermore some of the streaks doesn't complement the lighting on the render.

the bottom area is nice, with the lighting and such. but if you added some subtle rays of light emitting from the source behind the renders, i think it'll look better. i think it shouldn't be too prominent, so as to not kill the focus of the picture.

the light source on the middle right looks out of place to me.

most of your work are more inclined to depicting scenes more so than regular render&brush, but this one doesn't quite make the cut.

First I have to say that abstract is a subject that is totally out of my field so technically I can not give much of a critique BUT when emotion is evolved , yes! I have things to say..:nod:
I have read your description carefully and I have to say a huge bravo to you..What I see looking at this is a soft soul on the upper part of the image slowly getting torned and cut in pieces as I move my eyes down..The soul is bright, full of light and ready to give, but still they torn it and brutallized it..So much light in that soul, so much feeling and energy I see, that for me shows how much strength someone can hide to recover from wounds and betrayals..
Excellent details and the "game" between soft blur and sharpness gives the image an amazing power! The light is so bright!! Still its not distructing..Its a light i want to look at because I get hope out of it!

Its an excellent work of art , an excellent representation of feelings and I Thank You for sharing your feelings with us! :)

I like the silhouetted render, it's a nice effect and the highlights on the edges make the lighting seem more dynamic. I think the areas of render you can see clearly are a bit simple though, and the texture seems a bit forced. in the are you can see it anyway.

The particle brushing effects are a nice detail, coupled with the lighting tentacles, reaching into the darkness. It seems to symbolise going into new territory, somewhere unexplored.

The lighting seems very dynamic and involving, it brings out the details at the top very well. I think placing the typo in the bottom left corner and twisting it 90 degrees would be a better choice, I loke typo to be easy to read, and twisting my neck hurts right now. ;)

My main complaints of this image are the texture on the render, the way the central top lighting is just sat there, it just seems to accentuate from nowhere, it doesn't have anything breaking it up and it doesn't really flow anywhere. In the top right where some renders have opacity and you can clearly see where they go over others doesn't look too slick either. My last complaint is the colours, they don't seem too dynamic, which is what I expect from you. They look too washed out and orange and green don't seem to flow together well, they work better working together, like the orange highlighting areas with green being the main colour.

Plus point is the integration of the lighting at the bottom and the subtle effects like the particles and tentacles, they add more detail and make the work more engaging. :)

Thanks so much for feeling it and the suggestions...you are right, that the colors are like washed out because it was about sadness and depression.

Thanks again! :hug:
