Artist Comment

My fourth submission here and probably one of the most important for me.

I do believe that many of you have heard in the news about the fires set in Greece by arsonists, within the last weeks. More than 70 people died in these fires and even more than 3000 animals were trapped and burned in the farms. It is a great loss for our country and surely an event that will never be forgotten.
Considering this fact the university i am studying at the moment has taken some kind of action towards this. All of us had to talk about the occasion at the schools we are teaching for our practice and involve the kids into certain activities. Since it was summer and the schools were closed we decided to do this in a centre were every child would voluntarily take part in this event. We sent notes to every child that was at the schools we taught and more than 500 kids responded. Each day, 10 of us had to create a project based on the fires in separated classrooms. My kids decided to make a poster that would be published in a magazine. The message of the poster was Stop killing Earth, our mother. Plus, the kids decided to make groups and every day they would take care of the small gardens we created in our schools and neighborhoods. Last but not least the university created a certain software for kids with lots of interactive activities that would allow them to know about fires. Believe me, you would like to participate in it as well. These incidents bring people together and most important it makes us wake up from the lethargy we are all in.

About the wallpaper. I had been working on it last month. Surely it was not meant to have a hidden meaning this time. I just started it for my practicing in using highlights and shadows. When this event was taking place though, I knew that this wallpaper was meant to be completed. It is dedicated to Mother Nature and it symbolizes the birth of life in nature (the little girl born from the flower)

Time: More than a month
Layers: About 60
Help with the lights: Adoc from Deviantart (he helped me so much with his advice/ http://adoc.deviantart.com/ )
Flower: A 3d object modified with gradient mesh in illustrator and then applied a texture on it / Stock: http://shd-stock.deviantart.com/ (Granted permission to use it in any way and I thank her for allowing me to use this amazing 3d object)
Textures: My stock (if you want them, just send me a note)
Extra help: I want to thank Kalico (from Animepaper) for always being here for me and my best friend anolibb (which by the way is kicking my butt these days for saying stupid things >.<)

Ps. This scan is overused and most people here have made amazing walls with it. This is my version and has nothing to do with the scan being so pretty and popular, I just found it and thought it would best fit my idea. Thank you for your comments in advance.
