God Is the Violence by torture-device God Is the Violence by torture-device
What can I say? This is a personal original piece, something I hadn't done in a while. Who knows, knows.

I love violence, what can I say, as people love nature, because nature is violence. And I'm not judging from the sidewalks of it, but as someone who both experienced and dealt it to others.

Nordics were onto something with the whole Valhalla concept.

Here's two tracks for the mood:

please critique and comment, as always, and enjoy)

PS. People think there's some religious statement here - there's none. Well, aside from the fact that I think that violence is pretty fucking good for mankind and if there was a god, he'd agree.

UPDATE: fixed some hand misproportion and rifle/barrel allignment problems.

i like all the skulls and all the red, the walls towering into the sky and the bullets coming out of the clouds,
it's a shame some people cant tell the differences from bullets and bombs.

If the bombs are falling, wouldn't he get killed? Smashed to a pulp? Alongside the other bloody skulls? So he's not immune to violence per say, but is a victim himself.

Speaking of which, when will you do a piece on the Boston brothers? Or do you disapprove of muslims blowing shit up?

You have to be a very special brand of stupid to view whats happening in a surrealistic picture as a literary depiction. Those arent even bombs.

No, I dont do pictures on losers.

Right, they're not bombs, they're puppies filled with peace juice. You only do pictures on mass murderers so I thought the Boston bomb-attack fits your page right in.

Oh, and go fuck yourself.

They're bullets.

That's a rather lame insult.

"Knowledge is power and power tends to corrupt, so... learn more and be evil, I guess."

This one is making me all poetic and shit =)

"...and there he is, sitting on his 'throne', right in the middle of the bullet storm, patiently waiting... wearing that silly smirk of his, that smirk of death, staring, preparing himself for the tasks ahead... "

It is always interesting to see your personal work, TD. I might not always comment, but I always think it is interesting.

In this, counter to say the Uber Alles pic ([link]) which had a great layout or +HOLY+([link]), which I didn't comment on because diametrically opposed views and a wish to avoid ideology crash, this picture lacks a certain bon vivre to it?

I has your traditional colours of black, red and white, which I can understand why (I like them no matter, but imho they can't beat blue and yellow, heh), but beyond that... the picture is nothing special

The white walls catch the viewers interest, but the red intersections cause a problem here: they have no coherent vanishing point and that causes mental disconnect with the viewers. We do not have our view instinctively led to the figure in the centre thru the cross-bars on the red partitions in the white, which I assume was your point? The bombs are in my eyes touched in to further lead the eyes to the actual view point, but they can't hide the missing vanishing point.

I can totally see your defendant, protective nationalist point, so to speak, with this. I can see the symbolism. But it vanishes to me in shoddy execution when I KNOW you can do better.

Nice work.
I like that nasty red you used.
Really sets a mood for war!
