No Solace for the Soulless by Vectortrance No Solace for the Soulless by Vectortrance
No Solace for the Soulless

I've been working on this piece on and off for over 6 months.

The house was made in Photoshop using the vanishing point tool and a lot of high resolution images and textures from various sources. It was heavily inspired by a 19th century piece done by Albert Robida ([link])

Highly experimental, I've never done anything quite like this before, and I used techniques that were new to me. At once I am both extremely proud of this, and somewhat disappointed, as it didn't quite turn out as planned.

That said, the work still leaves the viewer with more questions than answers, something I definitely like to do.

Technical info:

Duration - 6 months on and off
Original size: 4750 x 6500 @ 300dpi
Based on a sketch by Albert Robida

Lol, this is so awesome. I love the Grim Reaper riding the tricycle on the clouds below. The style itself has a very MC Escher feel to it. Love it.

Conceptually I think it's awesome. My only criticism is that it looks a bit too clean and sharp, which goes against my personal aesthete.

(When I click at the link to the painting I get an internal server error in French ...)

There are so many hidden details, I am only glad that I clicked full view. Very interesting, makes the viewer think about what it could mean ...

It occurred to me a couple years back that the more time I devoted to any given piece, the more likely I would be happy with it a few months down the road.
However, 6 months of working on this was divided up into a few hours a week, so its not like it was a nonstop labor. :)

I recommend one day that you sit there and try and put in a minimum of 10 hours into a painting and see if it makes any difference as far as how you feel about it.
