Yeeeah! Thanks mate!
sinister feel that still retains its humanity gold
Thanks so much! I guess there is humanity in there, but effort has been made to remove it altogether!
Amazing work ❤️ Congrats Jakob!
Thanks John! Haha!
I am glad to hear :)
Nice conversion and painting, gold!
Thanks so much Pierre. The conversion was the hard part
I actually like it because of the symbiosis, you barely can dissociate the gender (I believed it to be a man until the last picture), yet it real speaks plenty to me about dehumanisation, rebellion, anti-conformism, primal rage both in it’s subject and its form ...
Thats a great observation, thanks. I suppose the stripping away of human soul is part of it. Dehumanization. Bringers of chaos and suffering. That whole spirit. Also, interesting with the gender observation. I did not think too much of it, but did nothing to bring the female touch to it, as it is largely irrelevant. If anything, it is interesting because it isn’t feminine, as I was aware as it shouldn’t be sexualized. So net net undershirt and such. I did bring the tiny black heart pendart, as a remnant of the girl departed. I did the same with the punk. She had a tiny lady bug tattooed behind the ear. But that was it. Other than, gender irrelevant. I thank you for your comment with observation!!
I love Rock Metal Punk etc. Black and Death Metal are among my favorites
The actions you described were of course heinous and evil and a whole music genre should not have to suffer for those few deranged persons.
Your work is awesome. I love the conversion and the paintjob, the dark vibe is there.
You did capture that brutal pose, wonderful!
Please don’t take it down. It deserves a place here.
Thanks for this comment, I really do appreciate. The genre is where it started with these fanatics, and I think therefore it was interesting to show. And thank you, I think it deserves a place here too. It was an incredibly difficult piece to do and gave up many times during.
Ehehehehe niiiiiiiiiiice!! Gold
I really like this, for several reasons. First, because we dont see people very often change a model/figure from it’s original as created by its sculptor. This is probably because a) people like the original (that’s why they buy it, right?), or b) they dont feel they should/can. But if a piece is altered to show an emotion, it makes the original a personal piece, which is more interesting than yet another similar version of the same.
I particularly like this, because I too like Metal, all of its variants, the music has a raw expression of feeling, often brutal, but never misogynistic. I wont bore you all with the thoughts or politics behind (early) Black Metal, but it I a free society it has its place.
As for your comment that “the painting isn’t especially good”, I disagree, and even so, it encapsulates the harshness of the genre. Corpse paint is not exactly applied with great precision in real life….lol
Thank you Henk. Sorry for not writing earlier. Thank you for taking the time to write. I actually got way too into the early black, ‘wave 2’, while studying for this, and I admit it was a brutal study that I had to take breaks from. And yes! The genre is messy and full on, and it was my goal here too. Thank you again.
