Swimmers - Journey

As promised - this is the 2nd in the "Swimmers" series - named "JOURNEY".

This is a two 2D manipulation of a digitial image capture of an abstract artistic 3D model I digitally sculpted called SWIMMERS. I have already created another (my 1st in the series called "The Arrival") 2D art from this 3D model from another angle (the front angle). This one is an angle from the back of the model.

Like the 1st artwork suggested, the model is of a couple (man and woman) that are joined that the hip and each with only one outer arm/hand in a swimming / stroking motion.

I wont put too much of my thoughts on the expression of this work. I will let all those that look at the work fill in the many blanks from my briefing. The couple are on a "journey" in life together - working together and swimming through the dark around them as they both see and strive as one to reach the same light in the distance.

Why each only has one arm when humans usually have two? Often its easier in life to be given both arms and swim alone because you are allowed to be more agile and not require consensus in your desired goals in life.

As a couple, this lack of agility has its disadvantages in overcoming obstacles in life as you cannot just think or act to serve yourself. So that is why each in this statue of a couple is only represented to stroke with 1 limb. Each gives up something to become one in their journey through life and they both learn to stroke / swim in unison to meet their combined goal.

The advantage of a couple over an individual is that the individual is strong and more agile until he/she loses the ability to swim - this is when the couple's disadvantage becomes its strength.

Now, I let your mind interpret what your eyes feed your mind. Please leave comments and tell me how you interpret this art. I would love to hear it.

Background of the art:
=================

- Created in a free 3D modeling tool called Sculptris then finished in another 3D modeling tool called 3D COAT for initial texturing and high res image capturing.

- Took me over 2 days to digitally sculpt this model in Sculptris. The hands and fingers were the hardest and getting the correct symmetry of the heads was also very hard. This this art you cannot easily see the work of the hands.

- The Model was camera positioned / angled in 3D Coat and photographed using different light sources and exported to PS.

In PS I blended the photo as 3 layers of the model with customized unique texturing each. I added a white glow in front of the model. I added three awesome textures from the amazing texture artist Pareeerica:
