Lament by ChaosFissure Lament by ChaosFissure
Too much Zelda music on my playlist recently results in this.  What can I say, though...I'm a sucker for piano in game music ;_;

10/27/16: Updated with much needed change to framing, and some different Chaotica imaging settings.

Apo + Chaotica

You know.. I think i just saw a little clue... "I'm a sucker for piano in game music." 

I mean this actually looks like a Giant Fiery Astral Octopus

I love the light-play in this one. I am making an art feature journal and I want to feature three of your pieces along with works of some other people on dA - the feature's theme is "everything abstract". You will receive full credit.
The journal will be posted in a moment but your art will only be featured after your permission (if you will permit it naturally), if you want to see how it works with me, you can visit my profile and check it.

I think you're right to consider this your favourite. There's great dynamism, sense of atmosphere, figurative shape and furthermore it seems nicely framed in composition without too much chaotic structure. Unity is further enhanced by the mirroring of foreground forms (the key 'dancing figures') with backdrop (looks like two smaller/darker copies dancing to the back left).

I appreciate the constructive feedback :) When I normally represent fire, it's about heat and a burning glow with outward and explosive energy.  In this case, it has much more soul, more turmoil, and is self-contained rather than expansive.  The emotion I take from the scene resonates in my mind; this was far more strongly shaped by music and nostalgia than most of my artwork.  It also has a very strong "scenic" quality to the content (ground, depth, objects further away and radiant light).  Although I consider Phaethic Escapade technically superior in framing and balance (and at a time was tied with this for my favorite image), I find the emotion I extract from this more meaningful to me now.

I'm ever so slowly working on a related piece to this (same inspiration source, different scene from the game), and hope to have it finished by like 2025 lmao: Lament 2; maybe replaying the game again will give me the motivation I need to finish it.

 Phaethic Escapade is impressive too, but I think you've summed up an important distinction between (fine) art and technical craft. A sense of emotion is an essential component of artistic composition. Emotion is like the blood in the veins of the work, build on the bones of technique...

Lament 2 is coming along nicely! La la la la Looks like duelling mages.

Wow, this is so beautiful! I personally don't know Zelda, but I didn't know anything could inspire such awesomeness. Looking at all your work, I want to know how your brain functions. I mean like seriously breaking it down and observing every single cell, because your work is just too cool.

I think knowing how my brain functions wouldn't help anything.  Then again, I really don't know how it works entirely either -- and despite my analytical nature, I would prefer to just enjoy doing some things rather than needing to understand how exactly I do them.


I've tried to understand how I do things, and there's a combination of continuously firing pattern-recognition, combined simultaneously with gut feelings of what I like or don't like (and the whole "gut feelings" thing isn't something I have yet been able to explain logically).

I will note that I intend to stream (trying to) make artwork tomorrow -- both headset stuff and screen sharing (should be found in my journal if you want information on it), so that would be as good a place as any to see and ask things as I'm working on stuff. XD

This is tied with Phaethic Escapade for my favorite thing that I've ever made.  I really love how it looks...music is an amazing source of inspiration, and as much of what I make is affected by my own state of mind, I think the emotion in the image itself is much stronger than it is in most of my other work.

I don't know where you went, but it's very good to hear from you, that's for sure :D  I hope you're doing well these days!  If you want to chat or something, feel free to note me and I'll give you my skype or something.

And yes, we REALLY need to talk. It's been long.

It indeed is a render :)  I'm glad you like how it looks, even if it's a bit abstract to understand.  If you've ever played Twilight Princess, then I can offer perhaps a better analogy that might help :o

Part of the reason I love piano so much is because I used to play it myself ;)  I haven't really had the time (or space) to do so recently, however...

Generally, I assumes that comments are directed at the artist / person you are replying to / etc unless stated otherwise - while I understand that your comment was meant to relate to the work itself, I wasn't able to pick that from your comment at the time and thus was confused with what it was supposed to mean XD

It reminded of all the tormented souls forced to die because of me. Which laws condone that - I have no idea. Compounded trauma, the only way to relieve the pain is suicide. If not by your own hand then by someone who understands you. Question is, was the compounded trauma premeditated? And when I arrived they recognized me. They swiped and clawed at me and I listened. To separate their blame and accusations from my soul I became something like this work.
These days they sit in a barber's shop with a haircutting cloak. Red faced, hawk nosed and withering, they take a scalding hot instrument and say, "This is because of her." A blood curdling scream cannot help but be released. And then the pain settles into satisfaction, "Because of her."
Pain isn't enough. "We must induce: UGLINESS. Yes. Ugliness. Unworthy, all the snotty types will decree 'UNWORTHY.' And they'll come with us, to where do bad people go when they die?" There. More for us, less for her.
I must allow free will. "Hail Mary, full of grace, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen." How will these tormented souls judge the blind? Were they somehow implicated in the compounded trauma of other souls? Because if they are, and they can only be blind, deaf and ignorant, they are unworthy of the Kingdom and perhaps deserve pain and punishment. And they will never see me. =(
Damien says to me, "Who you?" I say, "Mother Nature. And you are Father Sky."
