Innocence is Bliss by puppeteer-for-kings Innocence is Bliss by puppeteer-for-kings
Alternative Zodia - Virgo

This was created for my University's annual calendar :) I was actually approached and asked to make something, even though my class wasn't involved this year :D That was quite humbling!

I quite like this piece - although most of the work I have produced this year has lacked my finicky attention to detail; this is because the tight turn arounds I had to deal with! I was expected to produce an illustration and a finished design within two weeks - while also working on three other tasks.

(I'll just add, I had never seen the Bizenghast image! It was happy coincidence ;p I now have a healthy appreciation!)

I'd never seen Bizenghast either. X3 The first thing that came to my mind was the Fires of Pompeii (Doctor Who episode).

But this is a brilliant piece; it drew my eyes in the bottom of the screen in the thumbnail line up.

:giggle: Someone else mentioned the Fires of Pompeii - I saw that episode a couple of years ago, although I didn't remember it well until I googled it.... It may have been a subliminal influence ;p

I'm glad it drew your eye! I'm happy that it stood out among the others :D

A lot of people have said that! I hadn't actually seen the image until today - but it's frighteningly similar! :giggle:

Beautiful picture. Wonderfully executed, and a very cool idea. It kinda reminds me of a more surreal version of the cover of Bizenghast Volume 2.

Yes, but I twisted it to suit my theme of 'innocence' - the idea of her covering her face with her hands to block out the real world, and seeing it only through 'rose coloured lenses' - hence the red eyes. Even if she tries to peek out and see the world as it is, she can't, because of her naivity, she is blinded.... It made sense in my head....
