Urban Consumerism by p0rkytso Urban Consumerism by p0rkytso
Photography By: JViARTz / Jacqueline Kulka
Model: Elpha (US)
Manipulation: Me
Youtube Showcase: [link]

By far the best work (in my opinion) that I've created to date, total 5hrs work. Raising awareness to material consumerism..
Funny how people are blindly being manipulated by the latest technological gadgets, the newest trends, products e.t.c. and they do not realise themselves what this all means. Some, will even give up their humanity to protect their materialistic attachments.

New, isn't necessarily "Good"

con·sum·er·ism

a modern movement for the protection of the consumer against useless, inferior, or dangerous products, misleading advertising, unfair pricing, etc.

at·tach·ment

a feeling that binds one to a person, thing, cause, ideal, or the like; devotion.

Hi Kettle, 
Thank you for the reply, sorry i'm not very active on DA... The water effect is a mix technique of blending high res stock images and digital painting.
In order to get a realistic and believable affect it is highly recommended working on a lower opacity brush (personal pref: between 22% - 35%) and slowly work your way up... oh, and don't forget to constantly zoom in and out of your artboard to see that it works in all views ;) Hope that helps.

hehe thanks SV :) as a piece of expression art it's pretty cool... but the realism of this reality becoming true is pretty scary...
Monitored, controlled ... @_@
