Unsleep by realitysquared Unsleep by realitysquared
Well, I guess you could say I'm back in action after a long hiatus. Overtime at work and a general sort of Artist Block kept me away for awhile.

The image itself is about two-thirds intention and one-third random experimentation.

A basic Poser figure started it off. She was fixed up with some pretty oriental features, although it's impossible to tell that anymore.

She was imported into Bryce4, textured (twice) and rendered (twice once again).

The two resulting renders were imported into Photoshop5, combined creatively and then extensively airbrushed with my Intuos tablet.

The image has suffered just a bit of pixel damage between the watermarking and the jpeg compression but it's still pretty accurate to the original.

Prints will be available at Pixelprintz [link]

I remember seeing this image ages ago on another site, I cant recall what the site was now though. And it wasnt the whole image it was a close up of the right side of the head. Wish I could remember now where it was but it was a couple years ago I think. I loved the cropped image then when I saw it but had no idea who the artist was....glad that I finally know. Great piece of work! :+fav:

Your work is really impressive. You are getting a lot out of application-hopping, sort of a digital mixed media thing you've got going. Well, it's working. If you haven't seen his stuff you might want to look at an artist who works at Blur named Neil Blevins [link] since I think you have complementary styles. Good work!

Holy shit thats some nice work, the texturing is supreme! The way the skin cracks up around the small tubes and moulds into the large ones relay maes it look realistic. It is a fantastic render, the person looks like they are in alot of pain, her body looks like it has been scortched badly.

Great work *favouratizes*

wow, the detail in this is truly amazing! The detail on her face is especially interesting...the faint blotches and bruised color of her eyes and lips give her a painful, sick look, but her expression is almost one of rapture....makes me think harder about what the image is saying...defiately a great comeback! :) (Smile)

nice to see you back!
a dark, impressive comeback you have here. great texture and nice work on those tubes sprouting out of her face. the expression of her face is mysterious, its both showing pain and pleasure at the same time.

zen-x Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2002
Highly impressive. The texture of the skin and body really emphasis the difference between the order of machines and the chaos of life (or is zen overtired?). The facial expresion is just right, leaving me wondering if the subject is experiencing pain or pleasure.

Do you think about sticking tubes in girls heads alot?;) (Wink) Seems to be a recuring theme... not that I'm compaining.

Thanks for some more eye candy.

I like the textures, they enhance the expression. The colours are great too. Looking at the pipes sticking out of her head & face, H.R. Giger springs to mind. This is far more elegant than anything he's done.
You've used a different texture on the tounge or is it less intense compared to the rest of her face? either way it looks great that you've gone into that detail, makes a lot of difference. Too much to say, but you've probably heard it all before.
Beautiful work, as usual.

another masterpiece from the master. the only thing i would've changed would be the size of the mouth. i'd have made it slightly smaller and closed it to make the figure look more meditative.

hmm, the stats say this has 1 comment, but I can see 2 ??

Yes, much to the confirmation of my suspicions, this is amazing work. The style as always is original and brilliant, and the technical quality really struck me.

Amazing work, but I think the change in light, texture and colour between face and body is a little too dramatic.

Awesome stuff though !

Very very impressive work. It looks like something that'd be on one of björk's album covers..
It's obvious that a lot of work went into this.. which has paid off. Every last drop Nod
Terrific detailing.. awesome textures.. it's beautiful and creepy at the same time :O (Eek)
