FLESH BALL!!!( Why Is Everything Alive?) by AugustinasRaginskis FLESH BALL!!!( Why Is Everything Alive?) by AugustinasRaginskis
When I started drawing this, this seemed like fun goofy idea, but as I continued working on it, I started thinking that this could easily be considered horror or even gore. If I did't use such bright colors and didn't put a smile on the characters face, it would definitely be some kind of horrible competition to the death. However, I still view this as a fun image, or is it just me and I'm even weirder than I thought? Tell me what you think.
I had fun playing with exaggerated and broken perspective and really bright colors on this one. Please view this at full size for the best view of all the detail.

I really like how the elements are all fragmented and blocky, I particulary like the shoe closest to the viewer. The whole picture is interesting to look at, it spurs my imagination and Im curious to what she is up to. Nice colors and different in the good sense.

Man! Your style blows me away!
It's like a "What if there was a world where every thing was organic"...
Pretty much. One way of creatig stuff is taking an idea and exagurating the shit out of it and that's pretty much what I did.

This is so friggin' strange and angular and colorful and I love it.

This looks like it would make a good game.
Is this a study of Robert Williams work? It fits his style of foreground/background (more realistic in fore, cartoon/pattern in back), subject matter and color palette. If so, great job.
No, not really. To be honest I'm not sure who Robert Williams is. I don't like to do any kind of work based on work by other people, I find it boring. Some similarities are unavoidable having in mind the share amount of art that exists. Anyway, in my mind any kind of work that is based on the authors own ideas is higher than most work based on someone else’s style. This is why I don't like fan art.
I did the more cartoonish and less detailed work in the background because I tried to clearly separate foreground from background and because I liked the style of it. If I didn't do this, the whole picture would be very hard to read having in mind how colorful and crowded it is, it's just common sense.
I understand and agree with the reasoning behind your choices. You really should check out his book "Views From a Tortured Libido." I think you will appreciate some of the painting techniques and mixture of styles in his work.
