Frightening Truth About Desire by ianvicknair Frightening Truth About Desire by ianvicknair
This piece narrates my experience of adoption. One of my biggest loss was the feeling of love. I yearn for it, but at the same time it terrifies me. I was never able to experience it when I was younger, but as I have grown older, I have learned more about love, and even felt a little part of it. Pieces of my heart have felt like they were detached, but as time passes by, I feel like my heart is slowly being restored.

All stock images are from me and elements created by me.
Thank you to: Shaun for the help of the render man :) Cheers mate

Given 2013-08-30
The suggester writes, "Frightening Truth About Desire by *ianvicknair beautifully depicts a life and a heart coming back together after a heartbreaking situation. It's something that many people can relate to, beyond his own personal story behind it." Please review the artist's statements to get the full impact of this creation! ( Suggested by slight-art-obsession and Featured by Aeirmid )
When you see this, you actually can feel something, the tittle fits really good, I can't say much because this is your experience, but from this side of the window looks very good, the details in the body and overall, the well balance light and dark, those little random (or not) things that make the picture even more interesting. Yes, that fear, that feeling that you got when you want something, but you don't what would happen... you can feel that in here. I don't know but I love this piece, you did and awesome job here, you just have to love this.

I would have to say over 40 hours, i did a 3d model of the guy and of the diamonds and then copied the work in illustrator and transferred it to Photoshop. Took a lot, you should check the rest of my gallery
