Prolepsis by RGDart Prolepsis by RGDart

The decay of flesh. The lost purity of youth, aeons foreshadowed in moments of haunting prolepsis. We are all dying at the moment of conception, all shared in the role of universal entropy - The process of life to inevitable death.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-12-01
Prolepsis by RichardGeorgeDavis is both minimalist and striking! Pulling off simplicity without feeling empty or unfinished. Wonderful job! ( Featured by AbbeyMarie )
:iconaelathen:
I love to see deviants that tell a story behind their images, instead of making the same old "pretty" picture or follow fashions, which already creates a big impact on the viewer.

At first it seems like just plain mountains (You are so good at making textures!) but than people realize that there is a face in the middle, which probably drowns them into the whole feeling that you have explained in the description.

It feels to me as if the body of the person you represented is cold, shattered and has like a strong attitude (mountains) yet inside the head there are only clouds, the sky, freedom...but such different things one from another.

The colors are very strong yet it gives the kind of "hurt" emotion to them, so even if they are strong they still show fragility just like the overall picture!
What do you think?

It took me a while to realize there was a face, i was confused for a whole 30 seconds. :proud: 
Great piece though, it quickly grabbed my attention!
