The Memory Remains by Deathpen The Memory Remains by Deathpen
The Memory Remains... or does it? Ever contemplated suicide? Then you definitely thought (probably satisified) how everyone is going to be saddened by your death. But what if they won't be? What if they don't care? You're alive and some people don't give a damn about you, do you think they will, when you won't be around? This goes out to all the people that ever thought of killing themslves - I've seen cases of suicide - nobody has anything nice to say about the dead one. They all think he was just sick anyway. Stop dreaming - if you want your memory to remain, then do something memorable. Everybody dies, but not everyone truly lives! Keep that in mind!

This deviation has been created while obssesively listening to Xandria - Ravenheart, Magica - Daca and Manowar - Sons of Odin.

I thank the artist ~Tequilaz0r for his friendlyness and support. I also thank the following stock-artists: =resurgere ^thespook =markopolio-stock

As for creating this piece - more than 1.000 objects have been involved. Each one of those squares and rectangles has been hand created separately, and trust me - texturizing that skull wasn't easy. I only used Corel Photo-Paint X3, no 3D stuff whatosever.

I give my clubs permission to display this in their gallery.

I never realised how everyone who contemplates it thinks the universal "what would that do to those left behind", thanks for your insight.

Words of wisdom many of us don't manage to find while staring to their distorting mirrors.

Almost perfect combination with the picture.
(there isn't such thing as perfect)

Pleased to meet you.

There is such thing as perfect, but our minds wouldn't be able to process or recognize it (possible mind explosion), which means it will always be lost. Just my thoughts anyway.

Perfection is something to reach out. It drives us to our limits, but it's always too far to even see.
Still it's worth to try. You'll never know if some day... Anyhow it gives us the reason to get better and do our best.

Oooo, ba nu :D Am folosit spectrul de culori de la cea veche, pe craniul texturizat, ca uite ca aici textura e lipita de craniu...adica... asta chiar pare facut din patratele din alea...ala vechi era doar un overlay. Oricum, apreciez favu - te scot sa dansam pe un brutal flamenco death metal :lol:

Fantastic design and colors. Great textures, and I really like the squares. Although this piece isn't dynamic at all, it does remind me of the artistic movement called "Futurism".

I guess that those squares and rectangles do give it a "futuristic look". Thank you for the fav :D

arata bine omule.. dar ai putea sa bagi si o varianta fara liniile / patratelele alea ?

Deathpen Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2007
Oricine putea sa faca un craniu jumate galben jumate albastru. Liniile alea sunt tot jmenu - observa cum craniul e alcatuit din dreptunghiuri si patratele...de aia am stat 10 ani la asta...
