Its a really good piece of work.
But, not-as-usual, I feel the need to point some things I would have loved to see. This is a COMPLETELY PERSONAL CRITIQUE. Its all about what I would have loved to see and feel.
Reading and watching your process, for me it was all about an uknown space inteligent being/astronaut, pictured while founding something really really unkown in a absolutely uknown world. Then, I felt the need to watch and feel the fucking deep feeling in the unknown astronaut. I needed to feel his vomit of emotions, if he has any.
His/her face is clearly shown as a question asked to someone else outside the frame; questions like "Wtf is this", "ist this all we were looking for?".
I feel what this piece needs, is a giant penis. It needs the drama moment braking as a SciFi scene. The astronaut is at an incredible unknown world (when I saw"floating polygons" alternative in your process, I came).. and here, he finds this... thing.. being? the thing spreads light, and its alive.. the astrounaut is impressed, he is watching, hearing, and feeling something completely new, and unknown.. he fucking travels universe and now finds something completely .. new to him. Whoever he is, no matter his exerience, something happens to him, something has to happen.
His face.. in your previous sketches, when he was watching the orb directly, it was 'fine'. He was looking far beyond the point of the light orb, thiking about something, there was self-questioning, memories, or something else, it was his own time. But now, in a really interesting scene, he just stares at us. Is this bad? Is this good? Was he looking for this? Was He not? There's something your work wants to tell us, but his face is not telling anything but nothing. I may put a Munch-Scream face, and I would feel and understand. Make him cry and I would feel that there's something about the tiny octopus, that is important. I dont want to know "why" is this important, but I do would love to see "how" this importance affects the astronaut.. that's the whole picture this work needed to comunitacte.
The more I write, the most I like it. Thats freaking good, indeed. But still, I could have fapped to an epic SciFi moment. But not, yet.
Oh! and the shiny tiny octopus, it is not reaaly like the sky to me. This sky (lovely) is fragmented into streams. Its fragmented into different blues, they all move together, but they're not a whole. But the tiny thing, its rounded as a whole. and its curvy, it has clear boundaries, not as the sky composition.
Anyway, again, its all personal. Maybe too much.
Fuck this is such a great work. Thanks.
