Wired Flesh by TD-Vice Wired Flesh by TD-Vice
To-be-cover for my novel. Cropped and resized as standalone art, of course. Pretty excited with this one. Tried a few new tricks.

Comment, enjoy, and listen to some GITS music for better effect www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeWnvE…

It's beautiful. Inspired by Deus Ex, I suppose?

Thingies on forehead? Check.
Thingies around eyes? Check
Mechanical arm? Check
Various stuff written on the mechanical parts (warnings, brand names)? Check.
Coat? Check

Even the fucking haircut sreams Jensen.
And the background reminds me of the levels of Deus Ex: Human Revolution that took place in China.

Do any of you people on dA aware of shit OUTSIDE of videogames? Like books and stuff? Do you entertain the possibilities of original creation?

Seems not.

I just mentioned it as a possible source of inspiration. Would it have been better if I said that it might be inspired by "Do androids dream of electric sheep"?
And to be frank, no, I do not see anything original in it. Bio-modification, androids, sci-fi and such have been prominent topics in art for a very long time.
I still think it's beautiful.

No need to be on the edge like that.

You don't get the difference between visual aesthetic and concept, and that's exactly what I'm talking about.

The concept - a chick with implants - is of course not original, and I'm not saying it is. But the visual aesthetics chosen to express this concept, are to a point, original, and definitely have nothing to do with Deus Ex. I like Deus Ex, and for a bigger part, for it's solid, wholesome, thought-out aesthetic woven into each game element - and because I know it so well, I can say that this pic is totally dissimilar.

What I'm saying, is that people like you have very small, constantly shrinking visual libraries made mostly on popular video-games, and you perceive every similar concept through the lense of that small, microscopic visual library.

Implants? MUST BE DEUS EX! Power-armor? MUST BE HALO! Dieselpunk? MUST BE BIOSHOCK! Not taking in account that the technique and aesthetics might have nothing in common with that aside from key concept elements. You should consume more media to correctly notice inspirations and similarities.

Why are you acting like I insulted your mother?
I only said that it seemed like you were inspired by Deus Ex, because, as you know, implants are a pretty big deal in the DX franchise, and with recent additions to said franchise, it's fair to assume that you did, in fact, get inspired by it.

I'm not trying to disregard your abilities here in any way, I'm just saying that it has an uncanny resemblance of a typical scene in Deus Ex.
It's not even criticism, just mere commentary. You needn't take it so personally.

I do understand the difference.
You just get way too worked up about a reference to a game, and accuse me of all sorts of things.
For someone who acts like a big tough bad guy, it's really quite childish. :-)

I just accused you of not understanding a fundamental difference and having a small visual library if anything with implants immediately draws a references to DEHR for you. That's not "all sorts of things".

And you still continue arguing with me, an artist, trying to prove me what? - while you're not an artist youself. Now that is truely childish. In addition to the abovementioned, you have a really poor discussion ethic and a vague understadning of what certain words mean. That's kinda sad)

Looks really awesome! The skin looks so soft you can feel it, the tattoo is very dynamic and a good contrast both to her still pose and the colors of the background, and I really like how you direct the viewer's eye with the highlighted picture diagonale. And the tech looks like 80s style scifi - back when tech looked like tech and not like coffee tables.

Is she a character from the novel? And will there be a translation in English?

Crazy amount of detail in this one, is this a painted piece or did you use a bit of photo editing as well? Either way it's a beautiful piece and I'd say a very effective cover for a book, really grabs the eye, what I'd like to see would be a title added when you decide on one. That'd make this  truly complete as well as giving your stalkers plenty of fodder for whatever they imagine you're writing. Keep up the good work, keep up the great art, and I'd stick with this direction for a bit, it seems to fit you better and attracts less butthurt fanboys.

I'm so glad for you! :D

By the way I attended the Day of the Breakout this weekend, a local memorial (Day of Honor) about German and Hungarian soldiers who, fulfilling their vows, gave their lives rescuing the patriotic civilians defending Budapest from the ring of Soviets who were about to rape and murder every living being in the city in World War II. It was a peaceful and patriotic memorial, promoting the value of our lives that were indirectly saved by these heroes who have fought and fallen for us, their final will engraved in our very existence: Live, and carry on the flame.

You realize that I'm Russian and buy into the whole "Soviets raped everyone and their grandma" no more than I buy into the "germans made human skin lampshades"? Every side raped and pillaged when it can, and every side had those who didnt. On the other hand, the offensive side - the Germans and Hungarians logically reaped the fruit of defeat, so cry me a river. They didnt fight for me, heh. Quite the contrary.
