Death is the Road to Awe. by SharpWriter Death is the Road to Awe. by SharpWriter
“If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks,
then I’ll follow you into the dark.”

I hope dying can be this pretty, here is some art inspired from one of my all time favorite movies “The Fountain” if you haven’t seen it, you need to. You can thank me later.

I got some cool cloud brushes so I tinkered with them along with some cloud textures on this I think they came out good.

Done Totally in CS3+Coca Cola+Wacky Tablet+ 7 hours=this

Full view or DIE.

this is so awesome. :]

I love Clint Mansell's music in The Fountain. :p

Darren Aronofsky and Clint Mansell made such a great team. :XD:

"All these years, all these memories, there was you. You pull me through time. "

That one part, where he gazes on his tattoos, where he remembers her... this film is one of the few favorites I have. A marvelous piece you have done.

Damnit. I've never seen this movie, but if it's half as good as this painting I'd be happy. The background is awesome in itself. The clouds and glitter-stars make me happy. I like how this really seems to glow. Looks like there's a reflection on this, like I'm looking through glass, and it intrigues me - the pillars and swirls are nicely placed and catch my interest without being distracting. The orb itself creeps my shit out because I do not like aliens. Or bald people. But I like the moon surface effect on the bottom of the orb (and I'm calling it an orb because that term short and easy). The grass is wonderful, nicely defined, and the tree is gorgeous. The only thing that really sticks out to me in a weird way is the top of the orb where it's dark. And the chick is standing funny.

I am so glad my wife and I weren't the only ones to like that movie. (we certainly were in our local theatre) When we were walking out of it all we saw were people cussing, scatchin their heads and a bunch of wtf? faces... But it's one of our faves too.

have you seen "the man from earth" by chance?

I would love to, but my current issue is that I'm buying a ring to ask a guy to marry me for the second time. (He broke the one I gave him because it was too soft.)

I was randomly browsing deviantart today and I saw this in someone's favorties and I was like "Dude... is that from The Fountain!?" I love that move. Darren Aronofsky is a genius.

I really love the details, you can obviously tell that you took a lot of time on this. If dying were really this beautiful, I think I would no longer be afraid.

Now that I've seen this, I do remember seeing the trailer for that movie some time ago. But I never saw it advertised after that, so I never got to see it on the big screen. I just kind of forgot about it. ._.; I remember it looked pretty interesting, so I'll give it a watch next time I stop by the rental store.

As for the piece itself, it's beautiful. c: It brings to mind a memory trapped in time~
The clouds are lovely, but my favorite part of this piece is the tree, and particuarly the sky in the bubble.

You sir. You and your detail. ;v;
