Peaceful street by Exphrasis Peaceful street by Exphrasis
My point of view on this :

This painting is about humanity , the way it judges things , is afraid of whatever's different and new , and the way it acts towards it. I had the idea of drawing a giant whom had destroyed a whole city without paying attention, and didn't mean to hurt anyone. It finally ends up being attacked by humans , and fights back , destroy the rest of the city. After finding a tree amongst the rubbles , he realises the beauty of life and how humanity is destroying it , so he decides to seat and think about it , not carrying about them anymore, and not willing to defend himself anymore.

Please see in full view for details , and click ' download' for the extreme details.

Yeah I'm quite glad I got first fav on it :) It's a shame I missed first comment.

Lovely, I especially like what you did to the windows of the building. Why is it so un-contrasted?

Exphrasis Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
it is so un contrast because i wanted to give it a dark ambiance at first , but since i suck i tottaly missed it haha . 50 hours was the most i could give on that one ...maybe i'll correct it later .
