Lots of great stuff, fun subject.
This has been such a fantastic adventure as a contest.
Here is my entry
"At Least I'm Honest"
Weather you are a a poet, a writer, an artist, an actor,or even none of the above, when we create, it all comes from a deep well somewhere inside. As humans we have a need to try and hide so many things about ourselves that there are few visible truths on our surfaces. And sometimes, you have to really just pour yourself out there, and take your chances that someone will understand it. The character the viewer is seeing is not a good person or a bad person, just an Honest person. That was my thought process behind Newborn. Everything we create must be born somewhere of us.
Good Luck to all!
Here's my entry
Yggdrasil - the world tree. Once it reaches the end of life span, it spawns a young Yggdrasil. The scene of birth is quite surrealistic and a spectacular scene, as two events occur at the same time - old Yggdrasil dying and rotting, alongside with surrounding and young One seeing the world for first time in warm and cheerful atmosphere. For mentoring young tree, a ancient guardian of forest is called to take care of him and prepare for role of the most powerful being in the world.
Wow, so many incredible entries. Pretty exciting.
I probably should have explained my theme, but I was a little too excited by this whole thing and got swept up.
While pondering the theme, I became intrigued with the very notion of "creation" and bringing creations to fruition. The intrinsic human desire and the drive to create is the central focus of this piece. This drive can be overwhelming and so vast and expansive that often times we find ourselves dwarfed by sheer aspiration and the magnitude of our undertakings. What I find dually interesting is our ability to identify ourselves through our creations- to create a self and a legacy by creating. And thus I arrived at my concept. In this particular image, a new creation (though inhuman) has begun to materialize from seemingly nothing amidst the cosmos. Yet despite its relative infancy, this "newborn" has already begun to create something, though its motive a mystery- to satisfy the urge to create or perhaps to provide itself an identity amidst the universe?
