Oh man this one took alot of time, but it sure was worth it. Now, what is this art all about?
Now before i get into the details, i got a question myself. When you see a person, especialy those that appears to be in pain, do you confort them, or tell them to stop overreacting?
Whatever the case might be, the true fact stands. There are people who suffers, especialy emotionaly after a long period of time of physical abuse, withdrawal, verbaly abused or any kind of intensive pain.
Alot of people tend to avoid confrontation with these kind of people, and for what reasons, its different between person to person, but the most common to my understanding, is that, tehy have not experienced
the same pain, thus, is incapable of understanding it.
Anyways, what this art represents, is a so called A Caged Angel, being inprisoned in a crippled, tainted, rusty cage, and this angel, is begging to be free from this pain.
The dark figure on the bottom represents the tainted, rusty cage, and the tubes connected to it, well, it can represent many things depending on the person, including the inprisonment of the drug abuse, or perhaps being chained
by a dark, painful past that refuses to go away, wahtever the case may be.
The Top figure represents the Caged Angel that is chained to the tainted body, and had to endure the long, slow pain, and in due time, is begging for the pain to stop.
This art is dedicated for people that have, or currently is in, a deep pain. The said pain can be anything really, but after a long period of time, the soul that the body contains gets tainted and damaged.
I myself admit, is one of them due to my past that left permament scars. While wounds can heal, the scars remains, and for many people, these scars can haunt them for the rest of their lives.
The art shows that, within such a tainted, damaged body, sleeps a beautiful soul, a caged angel, that despite such intensive pain, can create, do and change so many things.
For example, an artist with such pains, might be creating the most mindblowing, most beautiful artwork that anyone could even dream to do.
Or perhaps that, despite what they experienced, they fight for waht they love, and not letting their crippled body or soul stop them.
So wahtever you may think about someone who is in deep pain, dont be judgemental. You maybe havnet experienced the same thing as they had, but show some respect to them.
It might not be visible to you, but their struggle is real.
When i made this art, i learned quite a few new things, including the details on the metal platings and lightning. The color correction was also something new i tried out and see if it would look good.
The biggest challange was the pipes, or tubes, such as the lightning and the details itself. I originaly wanted to make it also plated, kinda make it more industrial, but that would take alot more time to do.
I went on and decided to give the art a macabre, sci-fi look to it.
