Eye Control My Destiny by BlakkReign Eye Control My Destiny by BlakkReign
[update=30/4/O7]

Entered this piece into the Art Institute Online Scholarship Competition on deviantART as well as the Official website.
Applicants are required to write a 500-word-or-less essay on "How would you live your creative career" I thought I would share my essay with you deviants.


How would I live my creative career?

For many years I've loved creating art, something I honestly enjoy. The opportunity to have an art career is overwhelming.
First thing is first, the education I need for my creative career to get me started in the right direction.
I would like to live my career with confidence, so that my job will have a purpose to the challenge.
I want to be happy with my creative career, along with the confidence. Having a job that you will enjoy doing everyday, is something I've never experienced. I know that I would be happy having a creative career, because creating art makes me happy.
I want to experience the joy, the joy of completing a deadline with the confidence of knowing it's finished.
I love learning new things, and I can learn things quickly.
I know I am what a company is looking for, and with the right education, I believe they will find me.
I've came along way from starting to draw at a young age, and some years later I feel compelled to learn digital art, mostly photomanipulation.
I want to live my creative career, happy. So that I may be able to enjoy life as well.
Thats how I would live my creative career.


(204 words, oh well)

I chose this piece, really because of the title "I Control My Destiny." I feel the title stands out, just as the art itself does. I mixed alot of meanings into this piece. So no matter how bizarre it may seem, let the title be your guide.

Incredible. I love what you did with the overall tone, and bringing out the eye. There seems to be an added mystery behind the stairs to the building (chapel).

i hesitated at first, to where the eye should be placed.. the bend of the palm seemed the right place.

Interesting work, frizzle.

The stairs throw off the perspective a bit, but still a cool idea :)
Reply
:iconblakkreign:
BlakkReign Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
yeah it kinda does,i agree
however,if you think of it as a dream or maybe an illusion;then the off-centered perspective would be natural and serve a purpose.

thanx jesse :)
