    Great message and I love the idea as well as most of the execution. I do feel the text is unnecessary, the image should speak for itself (and it does). This is top row in my opinion.

    I really appreciate that some artists still make sculptures with purpose, story and a convincing concept. I got chills when I first saw this on the forum. You could definitely have a strong career printing your sculptures.

    Phenomenal! So strong and so well executed!

    One thing only: 'Arctic' needs 'the' before it:-

    'Last year 300,000 barrels of crude oil were leaked in the Arctic.'

    Default The work is quite nice but the message is silly.

    You did a good job on the graphics but the message of this artwork is so naive and lame. Did you know that almost all the components of the computer that you used to do this work are made from petrochemical by-products and that means that you are paying for the stuff this image is supposedly saying is so bad. Did you drive a car today or take a bus or whatever? That all all comes from OIL too.
    I am always amazed how adult and educated artists are so easily duped into supporting blindly popular emotional dribble like this. Sorry - I like animals too but this is just dumb and childish and motivated by very narrow thinking.

    If you remove the use of oil from our modern civilisation then we would not have one! Get real.

    Default Very heavy stuff

    I saw the top part of this image and wondered what it was. I clicked on and I just stoped and went quiet. This is one of the heaviest hard hitting images I have seen in a long time. It does not even look digital it looks like a painting. Its just so gritty that it smacks you in the face when you look at it and continues to do no matter how many times you look at it. Its a universe of pain. I like art like this. It stands out more then just the fan art that i see people doing and all the horrid creatures that look like they want to kill you.

    Its a very haunting piece of work you have there.

    Beautiful execution.

    I agree with Zsoka, although I would have not put it so harshly. This world as you know it needs this stuff to function as it does and you need it to function as you do. Sure, it is tragic what we all are doing, but this is how it is and yes, we are ALL doing it. Everyone here is as guilty as the next for that image, including the artist himself. By using ANYTHING petroleum based in this modern society you are supporting the use of those offshore refineries, tanker ships etc etc. as this stuff needs to get to our doorsteps somehow to make our Wacom tablets, laptops and iphones that we love ever so much and conveniently forget/ignore where the material to make that stuff comes from. Throw into there an image of an i-phone, toy train, any vehicle of your choice, airliner, pen/paper, heck may as well go all leather, wooden/stone/metal building materials etc etc as it all comes from and "destroys" the environment in one way or another anyway. Sorry folks, we are the dominant species on this planet and we ourselves are a part of nature and are only acting in a natural way. What we ourselves are doing is in fact a course of nature and you all need to stop pointing fingers at someone else as we all play an equal part as to what our species is doing. What needs to be done about it? Fist, start pointing the finger at yourself rather than any oil company out there. Second, who the hell knows. Someone smarter than me needs to figure that out. Just stop trying to put the blame on someone else as you are not only equally guilty but a hypocrite on top of things.

    //end rant



    // Oh, and really really beautiful work, btw. I only wish I had such talent.


    // Also I understand the image is ntot pointing directly at oil companies and could equally be looked as as humanity as a whole. In a way I equate it to polar bear killing a cuddly baby seal. It is in fact a course of nature due to the nature of the intellect of a human being.

    Sorry I do not wish to take anything away from your amazing work. It is truly powerful
