Dream of Soaring

There are so many reasons I’ve choosen, from thousands of combinations of words I had in my head, this particular title. Some reasons are personal, some are left to all of you to have a “guide” in constructing a story…

This is one of the most difficult works I had in a long time. There are few reason for that. First, although (like I wrote few months ago) I have few dozens of photo manipulations that are waiting to see “ether”, I am keeping them, still, hidden in a part of my soul. Second, it was a big obligation to make a work just the way I want and not to interfear with the strong passion for my love (model in the photo-manip). And finaly, third reason was - not enough “inspiration” for a strong story I intented to make. Or should I say, transfer from my mind. Well, finaly, yesterday, from 10pm ‘till 5am I managed to construct the story that was in my head for a few weeks.

This photo manipulation was made with 31 layer, two of my original photos and many, many textures, brushes, actions, plugins and almost every single possible technique I know. I made 22 versions of this ArtWork, but this one, number “8”, is definitely my favorite.

I would really love to know what do you think about this one, because I need a support which will give me, just one more reason for starting of uploads of my Photo-manipulatios.

I wish to all of you nice working week, and… KEEP DREAMING!

Hello David,
Kudos to your healthy and artistic mind and imagination. This is certainly well conceived and executed. I wish I have an iota of your pp skills (I get tired reading 22 versions). There is an earthy tone to it with added grains, the colors complement your vision. Yup I believe you can soar. best regards...Danilo

Hi David,
You have shown us an incredible piece of 'art' and what can be done with photos and an artistic hand. This is a unique and lovely piece of work. Bravo and TFS Julie

Hello David,

You certainly have ultimate patience, perseverence and dedication.
I would love to have seen the originals and some intermediaries to understand how you altered or manipulated what you began with.
However, the finished result reminds me of a medieval, religious, oil painting with the model in modern dress.
It is enigmatic and atmospheric with your style stamped all over it.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Zdravo Davide,

da...keep dreaming...to je sve sto nam na ovoj ludoj planeti preostaje - snovi. :) 31 razlicitih slojeva i 22 varijante???? WOW...svaka ti cast.

Mogu da ti kazem, da je ovo jedan boljih (ako ne i najbolji!) artwork-a koji sam videla na TL-u. :) Zasto tako mislim? Zbog atmosfere i osecaja koje mi budi ova slika. Prelep rad...odlicne boje, fenomenalna ideja...i sjajna prica. Bravo!!!

Puno pozdrava,

Stasa

PS pogledala sam tvoj site ali nije bilo vremena da ti ostavim poruku na wall-u ;)

Bom dia David
Very beautiful work ...and I like the sweet composition.
Unique..great art...a paint of feelings.
Great!
Um abraço

At last you show us (common mortals) an angel of your fantastic universe.
would God be distracted? or is Him giving us a 2nd chance of knowledge? - now the apple has a dove, not a snake...
Great work David, I love the allegory, the collours and, of course, your special mood. Congrats, mb

Priču si dragi moj prijatelju sjajno izradio,i mogu samo da predpostavim o kome ili o čemu se radi...e sada...rad sa lejerima kao što znaš je neophodna u svim vidovima fotomanipulacije...i sam se ponekad iznenadim koliko je u stvari potrebno puno truda za jednu sliku uradjenu na ovaj način...
vidim da si se baš potrudio da ovaj rad što bolje uradiš ..upravo iz samog nabrajanja šta si sve upotrebio prilikom raelizacije ovog projekta...
ovaj rad mogu da okarakterišem kao spoj dve tehnike...
u pozadini se jasno vidi da je to tvoj onaj klasični prepoznatljivi rad i kao drugo ....klasična fotomanipulacija ,ali veoma dobro uokvirena sa tvojom pričom iz uvoda....
to si ti sve dobro upakovao u jednu celinu ...i na kraju dolazimo do onog krajnjeg proizvoda ,a to je ovaj artwork...
čestitam ti Davide na svim elementima koje sam nabrojao ...ti si zaista sjajan umetnik u svim pravcima..
puno te pozdravljam i nadam se da nisam puno filozofirao...jednostavno neki radovi se ne mogu iskomentarisati sa par rečenica...
JozefK

malo me nije bilo,ali dolazi period kada ću biti malo aktivniji....i sa radovima naravno...

31 layers and 22 version of artwork? that's a lot, David.. i don't know if i have the same patient.. :) im not good in giving critique about your work as i don't have much experience in this field.. im totally out of your league but i love what you did with this one.. a perfect result.. well done..

regards, terry

Divno si ovo odradio!Bravo!Posebno mi se dopada kolorit!

hello David,

what i think, this is out of this world! and looks like you did a great amount of work and techniques, the richness whether in details or colors or the feelings that this Artwork conveys and provokes are beyond words or reality.. it should be painted on a canvas.. I like the idea of the red apple and the white wings and the white dove, it tells me something, again she's wearing half red, half white... connection and balance of 2 concepts is crystal clear at least from my own POV...
excellent composition and whatever are the rest of the reasons hidden, this realization is simply outstanding!

my sincere compliments and regards
suzy

Daki,
ja cu se ovde manje osloniti na sliku, a mnogo vise na motiv koji te je "terao" da je napravis...Mozda ja bolje od drugih mogu da znam "motiv",...i ono sto zelim da ti kazem...sto sam ti vec rekla...nema predaje,nema popustanja,nema posustajanja,...verovati,sanjati,...i snovi se ostvare...zelje budu uslisene....Postoji neka ravnoteza medju zvezdama...sve to nakraju dodje na svoje...I bice dobro...Rane ne nestanu,ali zacele,manje bole,naucis da zivis s tim...ali srecom neke buduce lepse okolnosti ucine dato bude samo uspomena...Tako ce biti i ovde kod tebe jer imas svog andjela koji te cuva i ti imas andjela koga moras da cuvas...i sve ce biti dobro..Kad imas ljubav-imas sve...

Pozdrav batice i glavu gore...

dear David,
a tasteful and imaginative art work of you,
colors are like classic paintings, and also the atmosphere looks classical religious arts.
but the subject seems contemporary to me.
we are really soaring in our dreams???,,,now we cannot soar even in our dreams... dreams cannot come true everywhere...
then, maybe your this image is the last trial of our visual imagination on the little computer.
from classic field of our sensation, we can only dream a little dream of soaring like this or not,,,I don't know actually.
dreams are dreams of dreams, but your image.

thank you,
Akihis
