Brain Tower by Almacan Brain Tower by Almacan
This work is remake of my old work "The Tower of Beetle".
"The Tower of Beetle" was made ten years ago.
I was interested how to change a past vision by my imagination now.
And I newly added taste of the German expressionism such as Dr.Caligari
and Nosferatu.

Modeled and rendered with Shade, ZBrush (Man's face model)
The composition, the tonal correction and the background
were made with Photoshop.

Man, I could’ve sworn that I had left a comment on this piece before, or at least one of your previous works, but ultimately that doesn’t look to be the case. Oh well, maybe this IS the first time I’ve come across your work in the eight years or so that it’s been here on DA.

 

And perhaps it’s no wonder why it’s lasted so long, given the wildly surreal, impeccably detailed, unnerving look of the entire thing. From the cross-haired laser eye to the intricate gears, strings, fans and other oddities holding this clockwork being together, you could inspect this unique creature a hundred times and still potentially find something you’d have never seen before.

 

Could definitely imagine a print of this staring at everybody and imploring them to use their mind, with the sternest, most stoic expression on their face. It’s hard to ignore the level of effort and the attention-to-detail that went into creating this piece-by-piece, and the result is one incredibly unique, steampunk-inspired work of true art. Amazing job! :)

crazy freakin fabulous! The expressionist/cyberpunk edge is perfect...I love the addition of the new critters and gadgets (I looked at the original:-))It's suddenly very reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch...with all those hellish connotations - but the mediaeval imagination is in a futuristic world. I don't know if it's what you had in mind, but to me it seems that the biblical tower of Babel just got way more cluttered, more technophilic, and more infernally deafening. Which, if you look at some of the threads on these and other forums, is kinda true....:-)

I think this is the best art in your gallery. I like the mechanic theme and your attention to details. You have to be a master for remaking your own work ten years later.
