Constantine by tycarey Constantine by tycarey
"A deception that elevates us is dearer than a host of low truths." - Marina Tsvetaeva

Constantine's probably my most favourite character. So here's some fan art, just for fun.


For the curious I have a close-up and progression shots on my blog: [link]

Nice hands and face, and I love the way you did the cards floating. Good stuff.

Btw, what's a "low truth"?
Reply
:iconthegreatamphibian:
thegreatamphibian Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015
That people are greedy, life is just to die, etc. Stuff that is arguably true but which reflects the less pleasant side of human nature and life.

Hm, so "low" truth meaning "low morals" and "low hopes"?

I see, so deceiving yourself is better than being greedy or hopeless or depressed?

Hm. I looked up that woman. Do you know much about her?

She's one of the definitive Russian writer-martyrs - of who there are a depressing number.

Yeah, Russian history is pretty sad and depressing. I was reading ... ah, crime and punishment once... wow, so interesting, but you can tell they've been thru a lot. It comes out in their humor. Russian actually sounds negative sometimes when you translate it into English, but it's not necessarily meant that way.

It's supposed to be one of the hardest literatures to translate too - Russian writers love subtle allusions and shaded meanings. Choosing a translation of one of the major works is an effort in itself:

I went to that page, but there was only a cute mouse in a maze saying that's not page I was looking for. Wa waaaaaa.

I didn't know that! That it's hardest to translate. Yeah, Russian writers... can learn a lot from them!

Can you read Russian too?

I love the overall quality and composition of this. The angelic imagery, along with the graffiti'd theatrical backdrop with a trail of cigs, and mix of plain playing cards along with tarot cards creates an interesting juxtaposition of themes. Well done. :happybounce:
