Corpus Delicti - Disquisition II by fantasio Corpus Delicti - Disquisition II by fantasio
▷ facebook ▷ Instagram ▷  ArtStation  

"In morals, theosophy builds its teachings on the unity, seeing in each form the expression of a common life, and therefore the fact that what injures one injures all. To do evil i.e., to throw poison into the life-blood of humanity, is a crime against the unity." 


Quote by Annie Besant

---

A new personal work starting out as an exercise but become so fascinating to work on, I couldn´t stop!
This is a homage to artists Max Sauco sauco-m and Nekro NekroXIII, but also Olivia, Dorian Cleavenger and Brom.
It wasn´t quite clear which direction to go because in the first initial composings the headgear and wings were bronze-colored so I wanted to add afollow-up work on my disquisition art, like that one:

The disquisition by fantasio

However, in the middle of working this out, I found a solution on how to adjust levels of different ornamental elements in a way that they look like one thing, exactly like Nekro does it, the look wasn´t anymore that bright I have intended it to be like in the disquisition piece so I had to come up with either a new idea for a series or add it to the Corpus Deliciti:


Actually I ended up using several elements plus some new one and then found that one meaning of the word "disquisition" already meant " investigation", so it came naturally that this piece has to be the solution of both, a story of a crime and investigation. Hence the quote on top of the description.

But I leave it up to you to make up a story about which is which, have fun;)

I love the concept, the lighting, and placement of most of the things in the picture. the third fire from the left looks a little out of place though. I'm debating whether its because of the length of the fire or the angle. Same with the third floating ball from the left. At first I thought maybe you were going from small to bigger but then you finish with a smaller ball. It just seemed a little odd in my opinion. I like the placement and different angles of the cubes. the theme and the color scheme go well together. I'm neutral about the apple, but what exactly has caught the mices attention?
What do you think?

Reminds me of the work of Dorian Cleavenger (think that's how you spell his name).

Thank you very much. Yes it´s spelled correctly, I know his works and it´s probably an unconscious inspiration that I should note, thanks for making me aware of that!
