The Idol by mashina The Idol by mashina
Work on commission therefore not so much fun in the making... meh, I like it nonetheless.
One afternoon for taking the photos, three nights of work while listening to a lot of music and smoking too much cigarettes.
Since I smoked a lot during the process I decided to pay homage to my friend, the ashtray. He's in there, but I won't tell you where it is :D
Started from scratch three times.

All photos, textures and manipulation by me.

Enjoy.

Great stuff. I think I have enough cables at the back of my computer to make this piece myself. And sometimes when I've been online for what feels like forever, I feel just like this.

The water mark ruins the entire image. I understand you don't want it taken or anything but personally for me water marks totally take away all of an images feeling and power.

Haha, a funny trick I would think the ashtray could be would be out of sight in the area the lungs are: of course assuming it would fit size-wise. xD

I get different things from this. Its the man made idol. Its technology running our lives. Its gluttony in a literal illusion of pieces forming a whole that is both self-indulgent and pride. It is the evil that plagues the mind of everyone in some way or another, that what we make with our lives is what shall be the guiding light for others to follow in our foot steps. Its evil incarnate in the form of man's sins. Its what we have become.

Is the ashtray the 2 silver rings around the idol?

Anyway, this is nice, man. It is kind of morbid, but that's the way I like my art.
