Last Hope by BeaGifted Last Hope by BeaGifted
A long time ago there was this TV show about how mankind was no longer able to reproduce, except for this one woman who had become pregnant, and the nations began to war over her or something like that, so that's where I drew my inspiration from. From the heart of the jungle, the saints gather to bear witness to a new generation. With this, I was trying to break more into textured digital art, learning different techniques to make my work more "painterly" I've got a long ways to go, but, I'm getting there :) Constructive Critisim is welcome

Hope you've seen "Children of men" that takes a shot at this issue.

The lighting is wonderful and the movement of the tree trunks and branches frame the focus of the scene very nicely. Very epic:D!

I remember that movie! Lol.

This painting is absolutely gorgeous... I love it. I wish I could have even half of your talent and skill. (Skill can be worked upon, but talent is inborn, haha...)

:reading:Have you read "The White Plague"? A similar concept but man created. I read it so long ago I can't remember who the author is. Frank Herbert maybe.

The contrast in colour in this piece is absolutely gorgeous. The way in which the woman is defined by whites and yellows helps to convey a very majestic and saintly air.

Fabulous! :)

Are you referring to the movie, "Children of Men"? [link]

The pic is beautiful, with the way the branches make a sort of nest around her and how the small lights pull the color of ms pregger's light all around the page.

this is absolutely stunning! Maybe some fire flies leading up to her would help keep the eye more focused on her, but you did a lovely job with the composition!

it will sound weird when i say this but: kind of like catholicism and mary... the whole light surrounding her. fantastic effect and yeah i remember that movie though i haven't seen it. We read a book kind of like it in yr 12 and started debating about the likeness towards that film. i really feel drawn towards this because you can feel the weight of the story behind it.

Oh yeah, that was a movie =) I saw that a while back too. ^^ I like how you did the perspective to make her up to be some sort of higher power, the way she is above them all and lit up while they have to wander in darkness is very symbolic.

I know the movie your talking about- I can't remember the name, but it came out in the late 70's about the same time Logan's Run became a tv series.

The art on the whole is good, but I was having trouble making out the details on the girl- is there fabric falling slightly behind her ( over the leg from the folded arm) or is it water coming from her belly?) both are interesting ideas, just wanted to know which was correct.)

There is a movie, called children of men. Perhaps that is what you are talking about or is based on that show. =) I love your rendition of the concept!
