Consumed - The source of inspiration

Hello readers,

Today I pose the question of "where do you draw your inspiration from?". Personally I find that the majority of my personal work is inspired by films, books, the internet, games, music and the natural world. This, I imagine is probably true for a lot of people.

But when an idea is born from a less obvious source the results can be truly original and have a deeper emotional message. If emotional content is taken from your day to day experiences or the people in your life, whether they are family, friends or simply the person you walk past every morning on the way to work. How many times have these kind of experiences influenced your work? I know they don't generally influence mine but if they did, the end results would be truly original. This would be a visual representation of my own personal experience, but also an experience that others could relate to.

"Consumed" by Toni Bratincevic, a digital artist from USA created this piece using 3D Studio Max, Zbrush, VRay and  Photoshop. This is an excellent piece of digital art due the amount of detail involved in the composition and layout of the image. Technically, it's a fantastic example but understanding where the piece originated from really shows the brilliance of "Consumed."

Referring to his time spent in Croatia, Toni talks about his neighbour, an old man that lived below him as the inspiration for this image. This neighbour, who at the time was suffering from Alzheimer's, would often forget which flat he lived in and would even forget the identity of his own daughter, slowly losing himself and the memories of his life. Toni created this piece to immortalise his experience with this man, as well as the neighbour's fading memory.

"I will always remember you my unknown friend, you gave me power to create this piece of art, but I wish you never ignited this idea in me because that would mean that you spent your old days free of this suffering. You will live inside your loved ones until the day their time comes, but you will live inside this image forever." Toni Bratincevic 2012 CGSociety.

Toni doesn't explain the creation of the image in any detail, so how much it relates to his experience with this old man is completely subjective. For me at least, I see a man struggling whilst the life around him crumbles, decays and falls apart.

I look forward to hearing your views on this piece and where you get your inspiration from when starting on a new project.
