Let me first off by saying that this is a great piece of art, it gives me the illusion of being behind him as he walks through this terrain, and the darkness gives me a sense that he is going to struggle. I love the blue mist coming from the deaths of the cave bellow, it gives the guy the feeling of actually being alone when he embarks on this journey through the cave. So overall I rate have to rate vision a five ( it looks spectacular). I seen a few pieces of art relating to this type of subject, but this is great I rate Originality a 4.5. I can't find really anything wrong with the technique, I rate a 5. For Impact I would have to rate this a five, even with out the guy this piece of art would be outstanding.
Love the mood in this, the cold, icy and mysterious atmosphere really comes across. This is really a prime example for achieving maximum effect with rather few strokes... (although I'd be curious if you knew right from the start where you'd take this or if this painting is rather the end of a journey, so to speak, and only looks as if it was done fairly quickly) In any case, I like it! It immediately grabbed my attention =]
I don’t usually comment on popular works as it feels pointless to me, my words simply getting drowned out in the flood of praise the artist has received. I also often avoid commenting if I have nothing constructive to add.
Today I am making an exception; this image is wonderful it is just so powerful. I really feel this kind of eerie mood washing over me when I look at this image. I absolutely love the colour choices along with texture of the brush strokes.
Very deserving of the favourite I’m about to give it.
