Appels by shirotsuki Appels by shirotsuki
Here's a snippit from my final media project, which i kinda commandeered as an excuse to actually draw things that were ... things i like to draw. so gears! and birds~ and flowers and organic stuff and things that break. systems that become other systems, cycles, the play of empty space, and other things that are delicious but not in my cereal.

Pencil drawing
adobe photoshop 7.0 - base coloring and finishing
open canvas 4+ - painting and detail

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-30
"Appels by *shirotsuki is a warm and glowing mechanic piece. The use of equal negative and positive space and monochromatic golden hues really keeps the viewer's attention. Just as well, the central figure's wistful gaze toward the empty space amidst all of the machinery gives a sense of melancholy mixed with hope, as presented by the birds in the distance. I love shirotsuki's style as a whole, and really recommend you check out the rest of the artist's fantastic works." ( Suggested by Kyonlovepanda and Featured by sambees )

I've been using this as wallpaper for years, my monitor is 1680x1050 now and it looks kind of stretched out... you wouldn't have a higher res version laying around there would you? :P

Gorgeous picture; the invading and entwining plants around the broken down gears, the girl staring off into the distance, crows flying by... It's almost nostalgic, in a way.

Truly excellent job. :)

I love the combination of organic elements with the industrial gears and gizmos. It's a juxtaposition that really works in this case! Nice going.

Love the colour palette and the ephemeral feeling this has. The shapes translucently sliding into each other and the blownout light gives this a surreal dreamlike feeling.
