Daily Deviation

Given 2011-10-10
The day the world went away, beautiful collaborative painting from *helmighs. Such a tragic, arresting illustration - the emotion is so strong and palpable. ( Suggested by Topicality and Featured by alicexz )
:icondennis-vampirelord:
Vision: I love the colours and generally the whole concept of this piece. One or two rain drops are not very good-drawn though. Apart from that I can see no other mistake in it. I adore the smooth smudge feel it gives you as well as the sad,frozen moment feeling, as one deviant said in a comment.
Originality:I love the idea and the things that this piece brings you in mind, you can imagine many stories inspired by this one. The general idea of the piece is something commonly seen, but the way it is illustrated here is something totally different and unique.
Technique: The technique used here has no flaw, whatsoever. The way I see it, it's perfect.
Impact: This piece could make nothing more than a strong impact to most viewers. It is very eye-catching, to be honest, it captivated my attention as soon as I saw it, and wanted to see it in a bigger size, to examine it better. And that's the purpose of an artwork. Cheers.

I had to write my own Critique of this piece because it really grabbed my attention as soon as I laid eyes on it. The title only prepares you for the visual punch of reality. You see a tragic scene of struggle. The rain and the uncertainty of the details add to the picture a feeling that relates to a real situation. In the midst of a situation, things become unclear, blurry, and everyone else seems to fade away. All of which are displayed in the picture. Without faces, you really only experience what is happening more than the people themselves. Inside of this tragic scene though, you still feel a sense of hope for the person because of of the technique. Everyone else is shadowy, uncertain, but light is still shining on the one in trouble. I get the feeling of strong willpower, the entire world has went away around him and he is nearly dead, yet he still holds his light and identity, he hasn't faded away along with everything around him. Of course it is all very interpretive in art, and this is my vision, I point out my vision on the really impressive and unique uses of vision in this picture. Fantastic job, fantastic technique, fantastic concept and it was executed and done just as well.

From me it gets 5 stars on every aspect, and I think I described why it gets 5 stars on ever aspect quite well. Great job and wonderful vision, thanks for sharing!

Very powerful work. And if the title is referencing the Nine Inch Nails Song, all the more effective as I can hear the music while looking at it. Great stuff.

This made my inner emo spark.

No...but seriously...the perfection is overwhelming. I love the anonymity of it, the way everything is all blurry, conveying the surrealness of it all and the heaviness of the rain.  I love it how you could express emotion with such simplicity, the thrown back head, the shadows. Just...wow.
I don't know shat about art so don't mind me ^.^

I love how the rough choppiness brings out the raw emotion, the quiet melodrama. Possibly one of my favorite DA pieces of all time. I don't know anything about the things that inspired this (the song mentioned in the comments et cetera...) because I'm young, but just judging from what is here and that I can see, it is beautiful.

Just curious: Was this somehow inspired by the song 'The day the world went away' by Nine Inch Nails?
