The Furnace by KaiCarpenter The Furnace by KaiCarpenter
I think this is about as abstract as I get, at least for now....but I think it's fun and liberating to throw narrative out a little every now and then.

Does this count as mature content? I didn't see any clauses about technicolor nudes rendered with a heavy use of outline...?

Gouache.

I simply cannot get enough how fantastic this piece is! I absolutely love all color compositions and the shines in the stone, metal, fabrics and even her skin. You have done the perfect glow from within that furnace. This is the most inspiring painting I've seen the last year. I am always eager to see any outcoming works! Thank you for posting your work! :)

I'm just continuously amazed by your work - not sure if anyone has said this, but this one almost has a Klimt feel to it? The standing figure in particular.

Thanks a lot! Man, I am majorly pleased with the comparison - I've been looking at a ton of klimt lately, and his art is truly beautiful!

This needs an adult filter. Some of us are tired of having women's naked bodies shoved in our faces no matter where we go on this site.

Some of you are tired of it, so the rest who aren't should suffer for it? It's not like this isn't tasteful, and it's not like nudity isn't natural.

I don't agree this needs an adult filter....yes there is a naked forum presented here but there is a massive difference between someone being naked and someone being sexual. The figure here is beautifully rendered and while it can be argued it borders on being sensual it certainly is not sexual. The act of being naked does not equal sex nor exploitation of women. What is better for people to think of and see the human figure as something of beauty and natural or something shameful to be hidden away. Yes there is a higher proportion of female to male models on DA and in visual arts in general but surely it's better to encourage more equal representation and appreciation of male figures then demand the removal of the female ones?

Brilliant! It's as if Color is your third figure in this painting! Such an imaginative subject, and handled with such wonderful technique and skill! I especially enjoy your ability to portray reflective surfaces and light glow, on this, and on your other works! The colors are absolutely tasty (the cool through the doorway, the hot furnace). New Fan, right here! Fave'd.

I like how I never get used to your art. Like, I get this "wow wonderful colours (and volumes and composition)" every single time.

I think you should put a mature content warning though, for those of us who browse at school/work.

:iconkaicarpenter:
KaiCarpenter Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2011
that's a great sentiment - i think it's important to try and at least surprise ourselves with every piece, even if we don't necessarily surprise everyone else!

And good point on the content
