My Entry for the World Collabs Competition

credit to the almighty :iconnkeo: for his Source file and the guys over at [link]

I saw a lot of people pretty much trying to copy Rik's style which I didn't really think was a good idea, collabs are more about the fusion of 2 styles for me, so I decided to use the shapes in a more abstract way - heavily liquifying them a lot of times and other times using them more for texture and composition.

I may get marked up or down for this I don't know but either way this has been a project which has changed heavily from when I started it.

Big shout out to the Boss Kode for his crit and helping me with advice on how to finish off the picture - Thanks again my man :)

This is a stunning rendering. I love the muted undertones and the hint of colors, which make it a very evocative piece.

Thanks, I started out by making it black and white then adding the colour last as you can see here: [link]

That is a wonderful transition. I like step where you merge the faces with the smoke the best, it really adds emotion to the piece.
