    Nice shapes! The texture of her lower torso seems like it's competing with her arm.. but that's a small complaint

    JAN 27

    thanks yall.

    Obstacle3: hahaha i remember that forum lol!! you brought that from the deepest abyss of memory. haha good times!!

    ahh jeremy thanks mate. I have a huge respect for JJ and am loving his new direction. My colours are Fresh...Freshly Retarded!! haha

    thanks cam: nah use photos. i think they are essential so things dont end up generic, especially for subtleties in tone, anatomy and design that you just cant create on your own.

    slob: thanks, will keep it in mind.

    Shutup Simon you old dirty hornbag, keep that throbbing love stick in your pants!

    Anywho...

    This one is just an experimental combination of a few different styles. I have learnt a lot and feel confident in taking the themes and technique further with the next one. It was about 2 days work, about 30 by 50 cm.

    The principle theme is the relationship between humans and technology and the possible fusion between spiritual transcendence and the “technium.” It is inspired by the writings of Kevin Kelly, Mark Pesce, Terrence Mckenna and many others. I particularly like the plant metaphor for technology (broad term: includes language, culture, etc.) as it describes quite nicely the synergistic relationship between us and what we create (and what we try to control, etc.).
    Of particular interest as well is information theory and how this is shaping our world view and our humanity.

    I will probably think about what needs to be fixed and come back to it in the next couple of days to fix up and refine things, although I am super excited to start a new one, going to explore people fusing into machine driven pulsating trees and maybe use car engines or refineries but fuse them with organic shapes and patterns or something.

    PS I really need to get a new scanner!! any suggestions y'all? cheers

    The mix of styles is blended really well. Nothing but good words for you really.

    You said you might do something with oil refinerys next. I just had a thought, because you are going with a technology theme, when I look at computer circuitry like a motherboard it reminds me of an oil refinery. Or a futuristic city, because it has all these cylinder things that look like storage tanks and all the circuits are like the pipelines.

    I'd really like to see something in this style done in oils and really push the drippyness of the leaves.

    So beautiful... you're a really inspiring guy, I love the beautiful ornaments and your really strong grasp on the figure, while all of your pieces still have a strong sense of metaphor and meaning behind them. Do you use reference on your figures, or is it all from your head? Thank you for taking the time to post all of these up here, it really keeps me drawing and going on my own journey .

    Man this is some great work you have here Rodrigo! It's very inspiring to see someone who works so well with traditional medium when so many people rely so heavily on digital techniques now. Thanks for sharing your work man.

    Nice stuff man!
    As for the scanner: I would go for a digital camera. Somehow I find it captures much more subtle details of pencil strokes (if photographed correctly) then a scanner does. And next to that, you have a nice camera to fool around with

    Wow, so beautiful.
    I think the man and machine relationship is an interesting one because on the one hand, we do create machines for our own use, to make our lives easier, to shorten the time it would take to create something by hand, yet on the other hand with all this technology and power at our disposal, sometimes it turns out that the machines control [I]us/I]. We're addicted to our laptops, our social networking sites, our phones...the list goes on.
    I might point out a (somewhat) relevant article on cracked.com about all nighters.

    Anyways, I just think this is great and keep it up!

    It's indeed great to see traditional media still being used!
    Whatever scanner you decide to buy, get something bigger than A4 if you can, because I've always regretted my scanner being too small (A4 is really smal for serious traditional work, as you know)

    firstly questions/responses...


    yes i use ref, sometimes i combine different photos. perhaps one day when i master the figure i will wing it, of course i have a feeling I will die before that day arrives!


    Dastreets: hey man, I'm 22 years old


    Kimbot: Word up my friend! thanks for sharing. It's amazing how much we are not only a part of technology, but also the forces that govern this world. It makes you question if there are boundaries between self/other and technology/nature. I think eventually science will fuse with religion in some strange way that we can't see now, and that all our beliefs at the moment will seem moronic. I just hope we don;'t destroy the planet or each other first!



    Secondly my ramblings + art...

    based on a few ideas about merging nanotechnology with neuroscience to create this organic entity, a large global synchronised mind, that is connected to everything or something like that... i want to try and explore this in sort of a symbolic/strange quirky way.

    It's also interesting to think that maybe technology and drugs will just become the same thing (they already are quite close in my opinion- in particular TV= Opiate like anaesthesia) so maybe cyborgs, humans plugged into a super god computer won't look like we think, it might instead be constructed of nanomachines that replicate like an organic life form, creating increasingly complex plant like structures...

    it's all speculation and imagination at this stage, and that;s the fun in it for me, taking my mind through that journey. if I could create these for gallery shows and earn enough to get by, I would be thoroughly satisfied
    its bigger on the sides, couldnt fit it all in the scanner even though i scanned it 6 times.



    diversions of a similar theme....




    study/experiment...



    I also want to do a series of deformed babies immersed in artificial tanks, all linked up to wires. Kind of like a twsited strange version of the matrix, only the humans are kept as a fetus, and all the chemicals and shit to keep them alive has deformed their bodies. LOLS!And I'm thinking of doing them in really bright, pastel colours and almost cartoony style haha.
    sorry i ramble on and on don't i...
