isolated inquiry by prettyflour isolated inquiry by prettyflour
:iconm-j-gagne:
I like the theme and concept behind this work. As an introvert I have often engaged in "isolated inquiry" and I think it is something more of us should take the time for.

The simplicity of this piece works quite well. The figure's contemplative stance, although appearing awkward at first glance, conjures up images of Michelangelo's "Thinking Man." It is a powerful pose, one that turns intrinsic thought into outward expression; to think is also the act of thinking. I find the color of the figure here to be interesting and perplexing. Is this a comment on how "isolated inquiry" can be lonely as well as rewarding?

Part of the initial awkward appearance of the piece has to do with the fact that the proportions of the figure are off. I can't tell if this is intentional or if it reflects your current level of figure drawing skill. The drawings in your gallery seem to vary from well proportioned (She's Floating) to other less proportioned works (Fae Mother). Nonetheless, I think it works for this piece.
