Reins by TomasProchazka Reins by TomasProchazka
This is part of the story of darkness as a liberation. I was inspired by the image of ink falling in water, and how that could interact with the body. A large painting I recently finished for a collective exhibition. Probably my favorite painting yet. I recommend Flesh and Bone - The Killers, for the full feeling.

---------------------------Edit: So I go to sleep after posting "Stampede", wake up and have 700+ messages in my mailbox (Surreal for me) and I discover I have a Daily Deviation! I cant Believe this XO Thanks so much for the support! I love you! This will make me work harder :D AAAAAAAAA-----------------------------------------

Tomando las riendas de sus ideas
El se esta convirtiendo en un ser protegido
El se esta convirtiendo
En Mogüe"

Did you paint the "smoke" with an airbrush?

TomasProchazka Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
No, I painted (the falling ink) with normal brushes, but used the oil more diluted.

Awesome brush strokes.  It is obvious you were going for the random look while still controlling the balance of it all.  It is perfect!

I love this  - cant decide if he's taking the reins - climbing out - releasing his darkness - or grabbing onto it to hold on and pull out but it'a all solid and I love it (not the using the word lightly)

Also...
- love the quote - took me a second in translation - only ever the books in english -

im good with the word Reins. =) They were meant to be used figuratively.

Good job with the painting! The ink felt naturally moving. Dramatic and deep. =)

Reins are used on horses. I don't see any horses. Unless you're into that kind of BDSM stuff the title has no correlation with the image, if you are, get some help.

TomasProchazka Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
oh my first hater XD. It's just a metaphor, like getting in control of your life, life being a horse. Horses are controlled by reins, and reins are held in the hand, so here you can see he is grasping darkness as the reins for controlling his life.

Woah dude. You're like sooo deep.
You need to quench your thirst for hates.
Just because I point out that your title is shit does not mean I give a refrigerated f*ck about you or your shit 'art'.

Judging by his behavior, Profile, gallery and favorites, he has no idea about art.
He thinks this website is about memes and porn.
