The Navigator by hypnothalamus The Navigator by hypnothalamus
a variation on the time eccentric and the wave


as you can see the creation process is in some cases similar to genetic mutation (ok... more like some genetic experiments in a radioactive environment but you get the idea)

These are great. I enjoy the way that you alter the anatomy to explain the mentality of the character.

It reminds me of the university and my professor at "creativity methods". He called such combos, between two objects "the binom of fantasy". I was thinking... you`d probably make a sculpture out of this, like the "Time eccentric", so I can`t help but share an idea for the waves - you could use resin. I`ve seen several water like effects made out of resin and the result was magnificent. And since the figure on your picture is asian and the main color is green well... it so much resembles these ancient jade statues, which the Chinese were making centuries ago. Molding it out of resin will make it look just like these statues (if the resin is colored green of course :P ).

:) thanks
yes I already had that idea to make it out of green translucent resin for the jade effect
it's the idea I started with for the other two works but till now I haven't used molding and casting techniques so I'll have to research them a bit
and start working in WED clay or Chavant

this year I'll be working more on my digital sculpting app. for my PhD, it's something like ZBrush, and I'm planning to do it first in that one but... we'll see :)

Reminds me of a Jade Statue. Was that what you were going for or do you just like green?

yes I would love to make it in Jade and that was what I wanted - just like in the time eccentric digital painting

pastel crayons (Koh-I-Noor Progresso) and ballpen - and of course a gradient in photoshop for the lower part

Love this combination! Your Time pieces are some of my favourites, and I'd love to see a nautical theme emerge along the same line :heart: Very, very cool.

Very powerful, kind of like a wash of bioluminescent liquid that is liquefying him but also improving the navigator.

Well done.
