anger - by enhypnion anger - by enhypnion
This piece is about anger or rather what lies beneath its layers. I believe that the majority of the time, if you dig into your anger, if you peel away its scarred layers, you will invariably find pain at its heart, at its core.

However, this anger does not equal agression, nor violence, it is simply a warning sign, a message from within letting us know that something from either within or from the outside world is wrong. This is why I didn't give the mouth any sharp teeth.

A bit philosophical, but it is very well drawn.

I really liked Hatred and Anger they have a very solemn meaning to them

Damnit, I managed to make a mistake in the previous comment. Don't mind it, I'm tired. Duh.
maraz Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2003
Very nice, but... it lacks something. I know you've improved since the making of this, as [link] (hatred), has that "something" - the edge that makes a picture like look realistically frightening. This is just too smooth, the edges aren't there, and the highlights are a bit overused. Sorry, but this is not really your best work. It still has very good colors though. Keep on improving (though you already have done it).

Worship worship. Worship

Great description to go with an awesome piece. You can feel the anger and frustration it is having and it seems like it's gonna explode in no time. And boy, are those teeth realistic! :O (Eek)

This is just plain DEEP.

You've really managed to capture something here -- unlike a lot of other pieces I see on Daily Favs and such, it really *says* something. You've managed to capture the emotions of pain and fear with a degree of understanding I think many of us haven't achieved yet. Your explanation was very honest and insightful, and the artwork is flawless. The combination between your wonderful introspection and wonderful talent make this piece exceptional. Brilliant job -- you should be proud!

+fav, no questions asked.

Your work is way underrated. This rox! Great colors and textures, the teeth in particular are sweet!

oh, yes! if you've got it, you should submit a larger version of this for print. i'm sure people would buy it left, right and centre.
paroxysm Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2002
seriously tho, you really managed to capture the emotion along with the frustration of holding back instead of acting on the impulse. i'm sooo impressed!
paroxysm Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2002

wicked I love your style
tool must listened to much in your place
brianf Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2002
Very cool details and concepts... I can really imagine this, thus being a good piece of artwork.

It seems you paid good attention to the structure of the piece as a whole. I mean this by.. most people usually would attempt to merely make the entire thing symetrical, which would be half the work... good job on that.

Hope to see more just as good as this... :) (Smile)

man this one rocks!!! cool!
enhypnion Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2002
nope: that was entirelly done in photoshop.
as far as tools within it, mostly just brush/airbrush. I am using a bit of masks though, as I am use less and less layers (the last few works have been just a couple of layers, this one was like 5 i think.) The other layers are just masks holding selections. To make the selections I use either quick mask or the pen tool.

misterblu Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2002
Intense stuff. You've got the imagery to really back up your strong words. It's shocking how rare that is. Well done.
steve0 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2002
once again you just tottaly kick ass.. great work.. that looks evil man
deadlink Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2002
Nice output for this feeling. You dig the concept, and the result has finally turned out enriched by your taste for the macabre. Very, very beautiful.
urbanparadox Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2002
wicked and well done :) (Smile)
i like your description...make alot of sense
kowai897 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2002
I like how the gums below the teeth are a bit bloody; goes to show that anger is hurt, but because of the lack of sharp teeth (as you said) does not hurt anyone else. It's a painful experience.
damie-m Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2002  Professional General Artist
love it - absolutely. Workin on airbrush myself, and this is a great example on how I would like to be in the future! Keep it up!
jigit Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2002

alustrial Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2002
hmmm you already know how I feel about this. I look forward to seeing how the rest of the paintings progress...
deccard Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2002
the pain that lies beneath your walls you build to protect yourself, canīt be lived cause nothing comes in and out.
somepeople develope different levels of anger and later some sort of selfdestruction. slow, creeping or fast like a bullet....this is about pain too ---> [link]
anyway cool work. i like the colors and forms u used. in my opinion it isnīt really giger-esque, cause the sexual
expression is missing and giger is a sex-maniac...
alphawallace Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2002
Indeed a very nice job.
jezebel Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2002
