I really feel the concept in this; I also took the time to read the lyrics. You don't see any great lyricists out there. This picture reminds me of an old Atari game...that's just me. The vision of this piece is brilliant; it speaks of a corrupted society that desperately needs adjusting, and fast.

This definitely makes a huge impact on whoever sees this and reads the lyrics. The concept of 'overriding one's system' can reflect how people in society are nowadays. I don't think that there's anything needed to be adjusted...just keep doing your thing, and keep reaching, my friend!
What do you think?

The first thing I noticed were the green matrix-like colors, that already bring up the association of the external standard forced upon you. The hand also is a vivid association with suppression. The contrast though between the hand's colors and the green is bit to sharp. It gives some cognitive dissonance, since neon green of the matrix and warm skin colors seem from a different worlds. Maybe it's also the difference in the details and sharpness of the both parts. I would try to bring a bit more sharp details onto the hand to get it a bit more matching with the surrounding. But for rest: a very clear statement.

Very vivid interpretation (and critique) there, I really appreciate it when people can offer their thoughts--and in such detail--on my work.
Thank you :thanks:

Love the maze in the background as someone who has seen several circuit boards this really goes well. Love the touch of electricity coming from the plugin.

Hello!
This is the end of the tag line, on behalf of #ProjectComment

I love the concept and composiion of this piece.
The green looks very nice and surreal, although I might define a few more edges. :nod:
I also might sharpen up the edges and darken shadows slightly.
The whole effect is really neat though. :la:

The hand could use a bit of anatomy revisioning. I might highlight it with green, by airbrushing at about 30% opacity for a bit more realism.
I also might smooth out the skin texture, add a few wrinkles, and shade the knuckles. I might also add indication of cuticles on the nail.
I really like the size and placement of the hand though.

Overall, lovely piece. :la:
This is a pretty amazing piece.

While the greens are not too overpowering, the hand is a little bit dark. Only critique here, otherwise an overall interesting piece :)

Nice job. Being that I took some electrical engineering courses this gives me the willies. It's also awesome, I would have expected the maze patterns in the background to be distracting but they actually do a good job helping tie the whole picture together. Keep it up!

I really like the concept of this. Reading the lyrics really gave it a new meaning. Nice work. Only gripe is the index finger, seems a tad dis-proportioned.

This looks like a very interesting concept. :)
What bothers me a little is the fact that the whole picture has these intense green tones while the hand seems oddly out of place because none of this light seems to fall on it. I'd try to add a greenish glow on the hand, just a few greenish highlights to ground the hand more in the picture.
The relation of the bent fingers and the index one also seems off somehow, consider that when pointing like this your bent fingers wouldn't really be visible and rather stop right after the knuckles, I'd suggest making them a bit shorter. Right now it gives the index finger a stumpy feel.
I hope this was useful to you. :)

Yeah, the advice helps too, I'll consider it, as something about the hand did make it seem a little...off.
And it was useful to me =D

I checked out the lyrics to see where it matched up, and I can definitely see it :nod:
the thought of such a tiny action making such a big difference is interesting, and is portrayed clearly here :) Perhaps you could make the water stand out a little more? It's hard to discern what it is without reading your rap. On a side note, I really like the colour scheme, it has a completely techy vibe, but the range of shades used means that the different ares don't get lost in each other :)

Thanks for thoroughly looking into it. :nod: I'm especially glad you like the colors, it's the first time I worked with green on such a large monochromatic scale :XD: And that's a good suggestion as well. Appreciate it =)

I'm not sure why but when I saw this I immediately thought of Harlan Ellison's short story, "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream". Not sure why, just something about this imagery. Nice work, very symmetrical and strange :)

I love how you illustrated the concept, it's really cool with the spark between the finger and the circut. To me its saying how powerful individuals can be, like... Nobody hears about the majority, its always the people who stand out, even if the masses dislike them at first.
The only thing I'd maybe work on is the detail, mostly on the finger and nail. It's there, but if you make the lines sharper it'd just be clearer and more polished-looking.
Overall, fabulous job. :clap:
