The background fits perfectly, it brings the focus to the subject, and has enough detail in itself to deserve it's own attention. Helps give a sense of time; as the character pauses to read the 'menu'.. wonder what's in there?
I love the drawing, especially the memory machine itself, all those buttons, knobs and faders, and the style it was drawn in is fantastic
Tight illustration, uniquely stylized and the 2D in back adds a nice modern flare. Interesting concept behind this as well... the tube to the heart, demonstrating how emotions interconnect with mentality is a great symbolic component to the piece. Superb work!
I like the way it is sketched, and the combination of traditional drawing with vector like lines...
The idea is awesome, very poetical, and also very industrial, this huge machine in our back, which is symbolism for the ability of our brain to record everything in a small small place... (I don't mean my brain's small, I just say it's smaller than this machine )
oh wow, i just looked closer....and figured id comment on jasinskis controbution of the drawing a bit.
I love this piece. Its very open to interpretation. The most obvious being that this neat little machine records memories. However, i see the sadness on her face...and the curve of her back. The way the machine seems to weigh on her looks like its causing an awful pain. She has the burden and stress of remembering so many things. As the wheels in her head turn, so do those on the machine and the world turns as well. Its all a cycle of turning things that just create pressure and stress. Really quite sad and wonderful at the same time. There is a connection between everything. Great addition of the phrase 'the wheels turn' i love everything about this... this is my new background.
beautiful. id always loved that piece... props to both you and ` jasinski
i like this a lot because i love having a nice minimalist background. while this doesnt fit the classic definition of minimalism, there is a lot of space around...which is nice because i can place icons without obstructing the picture.
I love how the person stands out from the slightly faded and softened gray background. It emphasizes the person, while not having them be alone in the frame. I think it may be nice with just the person though. I could take or leave the backdrop. But you certaintly did nice work on it.
The white bar on the side is good for nice organized icon space, but i think just for continuity, you should have bought the gray backdrop across. It wouldnt be too distracting from the image if icons were put there.
