Is this a metaphor for how an artisan trains another (bring another artisan into being)?

Legs could be more detailed...? They are detailed. Textured? I don't know. I've got feeling they're a bit smooth for the closest part of the piece.
Nevermind. The concept and the execution are awesome :)

I love the contrast between the powerful angle he's at, and the gentle expression on his face. Definitely leaves room for interpretation :D

Incredible!
I love the idea, the colors, the feeling, etc
question! is the old man representing god/god-like creature? I'm asking this because he is creating a human,maybe? if so, are the other creatures behind him faild ones? I would really want to know what you where thinking about when you did this.

Keep up the good work and have a nice day :D

I try to consider multiple interpretations when I paint something. For this, I wanted the metaphor to be meaningful whether you believe in a Creator or not. So I'll leave the interpretation to you. =)

There's an element of morbidity here - because the bits of shards on the ground feel like "blood", and the ghoul like shadows lurking in the fog-shrouded background. But, his expression - of desperate hope - keeps trying to convince me otherwise.
What feels amiss is that, the possibly morbid concept of 'carving a human out of stone' and the sinister vibes the background gives - doesn't match up with the old guys expression.


Is this meant to be foreboding?

Wow, from the thumbnail at a distance I thought it was a pregnant woman, but this concept is pretty much the same idea of him chiseling out another being like him from the rock! That's what it is right? Even if it's not, it's a beautiful piece, and I'm glad you made it. I love the colour choice and I like his anatomy. The perspective with his crossed legs is awesome! As whole, it almost feels like there's something missing, but I can't pinpoint precisely what it is. It's very well done though! Thanks for sharing with us! :D ~ :heart:

Thank you for the kind words, you have the right idea with the concept. =) If you're able to put your finger on what's missing, I'd welcome the feedback!
