PF Assignment 12. by Endling PF Assignment 12. by Endling
"God is a beautiful little girl who changes her mind."


The sentence I was to illustrate, as ordered by my professor, . (Most awesomest prof ever and all that, you should go visit him.)

Yeah, and I took the idea to a variety of stages before I stripped off everything else in the pic and just left god and her world.
The original concepts were a lot busier. One version had a bunch of other worlds scattered around her feet in ruins, that's why her eyes are looking off to the side. Another had her sitting atop a tuft of clouds, with a bit more art equipment around her, and a few less worlds at her feet to free up space. And I won't go into how many different expressions I had her making to convey "changing her mind". But I wanted to take advice from and try to make a relatively simplistic piece. So everything got taken out. With a big.. white.. background. Eh heh. And in the long run I changed the look on her face to be something more solemn. Tired, and even sort of remorseful. I have my own personal views on this statement, you know. ;)

..to be honest I'm not really happy with this. But I wanted to post it before the next assignment was delivered, and so I could divert my attention to doing something else on my mind for the night.. Oh yes, and I used some of 's brushes.

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-11-15
"God is a beautiful little girl who changes her mind.". With PF Assignment 12. artist =Endling seemed to have quite a task in portraying this concept, constructing and rethinking until finally stripping it down to its simpliest form. And where that in itself is beautiful, the true beauty of this piece is that the artist himself became much like the brooding, unsatisfied little God he is depicting. ( Featured by MPsai )

I feel kindda sorry for your artist-god there, now... Poor girl... :<

I've seen this picture before, so when I saw it again I wondered why it wasn't in my favorites. >_<

Anyways, I really like this piece, even though I can't quite put my finger on why.

An interesting way to see God. She looks rather disheveled and overworked... Must be a hard job, creating the world, when you're so small.

This is the first of your art that I have seen. It is very special to say the least. :D What are the crumbed sheet supposed to mean? Just wondering ^^

Endling Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2005
The crumbled pieces of paper are open to interpretation. :)

But in my personal view, I saw them as sketches for the world that she's either given up on, or didn't work. Similar to how any artist can go through several phases before they reach a finished product that they like.. or don't like, but are too fed up to keep trying it again. :D
