This is a cool piece, however it is not an improvement from the original. If you did the entire statue that would be one thing, but to make the body of Christ into a thing that looks like a dead video game character is not an improvement. You get thousands of views and that is great, and it is a neat trick but I like real art of this great statue. Mine does not have as many views as yours, but I feel it is more respectful than your piece. Just my opinion, and yes it is coming from a guy who does not like digital drawn art FYI.
wow thats pretty silly lol.. christ does not look like a 'dead video game character' at all.. i dont understand how you got that.. i also dont understand how this is less respectful than your pieces of pieta at all. can you explain that to me? and can you also explain to me why you do not like digital art? i dont understand that either.. why the hell would people consider this awful blasphemy? wtf... please explain that to me too.
I do not mean to be critical of art because not everyone has the same taste in art. But I will explain my point of view a little more. This piece is arguably one of the greatest statues the world has ever seen. How again is digitally manipulating it and making the dead body of Christ into a video game character an improvement of it? Do you find it strange that Michelangelo carved a human body out of solid stone that looked more realistic than what supposedly someone can do with a computer? The fact that 18,000 viewed this piece, yet only 13 have commented on it speaks to the issue that yes it will catch ones eye but to have this as an image representation on google when you type in the name of that glorious statue. That is a little ridiculous to me.
