Another great one! I really enjoy exploring this one and all it’s details.
Thanks for chats along the way! Now finish that mutant!
been waiting for this one, very profound story, one saddens me very much the other uplifting
Thanks so much! Happy you like it, even though it really was too long underway.
Even if the scenes are not part of my story, they touch me and speak to me ... so I understand perfectly what you wanted “to get out of you” .... It’s particularly successful, I really like !! Bravo Jakob !!
Thanks so much Bran! Very happy to hear. And yes I am glad it is unstandable if not relateable. I iften get these very strong visual images that are symbolic in a way, even if I don’t know how. And sometimes they are just too odd. I think these are understandable as they are quite literal.
awesome scene and great background. gold!
Thanks mate! Thanks for comment. Background took five or so rounds. Something kept on feeling off.
Beautiful piece mate!
Thanks Alex! Happy you like it!
absolutely lovely, so peaceful ! fantastic work Jakob !
Thank you so much :)
Really great work! At first I thought the Chase bank t-shirt was a odd choice, but the way it ties the two pieces together is brilliant! Gold!!!
Thanks so much! Yah, it is like the dot in a yin/yan symbol. They borrow from eachothers worlds. In retrospect I would like for the mountains on the homeless girl’s shirt to have been clearer, but at least I know it’s there.
Wonderful, I love it
Thank you my friend :)
Two differents projects for the same piece, and two differents story. The first is my favorite. Gold for the two !
Thank you. I don’t have a favourite myself, as I see them too much connected, but I understand why people feel this way about ‘up’
Very interesting concept, two such seperate pieces, from the same basic figures.
They are both very well executed, I like the tall backgrounds. I’m not normally keen on ‘picture backgrounds’, but you have worked the foreground into the background, in a way that works here. Especially in the ‘Gravity’ piece, the tallness and grimeyness of the background does really convey a feeling of ‘deep down in the gutter’. I think the shadow works, those who understand the feeling you’re trying to convey will get it.
Float On is also a lovely piece, with the ‘ying and yang’ references (are the socks meant to be the same for both figures?) and meadow base and background, but n
o prizes for guessing which one is my favourite… lol
Congratulations on finishing it.
Thanks so much! I am glad you took the time to write. The background bit is tricky yes. I seem to feel the same, but I also do work with backdrops every once in a while. I like how it works the best with the gravity. But I really tried to blend the backdrop with ‘float’ as well. To have depth. But I feel it ended up too flat.
No the socks are just a bit random. I worked a lot with colours in both and they could have been more tied. Like I considered having clouds that would mimic the sun in gravity. But the main point of ‘float’ was to have it like a stairway to heaven with lines from bottom left to top right throughout entire piece, so that would break that flow. Nothing but cotton candy beneath this lady’s feet. Up up and away. Thanks again
Thank you so much!
Taking a bit of fresh air just looking at this. Gold!
Thanks so much Pierre! That is a great feeling :)
Glad you like it
Magnifique histoire !
Thabk you so very much!
Amazing work of art Jakob!! Gold, congrats! Best, Mariano
