Hi, my name is Andrzej Kuziola and I would like to show you how I created my "Having A Meal: A Conversation with God" illustration.

It is constructed as a puzzle; different ideas, different inspirations and experiences (some of them very personal) came into one piece. I find it more interesting myself when there is more than one way of seeing things and illustrations are more complex, and so as with most of my illustrations, this one is open for interpretation.

But there is one leading motif: double-faced people pretending to be good, but really using their power to harm others. Because things like this happen all over the world I wanted it to look universal, not connected with any particular culture.


For the girl I re-used my old base model, which I adjusted inside ZBrush with the Move brush and posed with the Transpose tool (Fig.01).

I changed the shape and proportions of the face features to achieve the desired look (Fig.02).

The clothes were created with the Retopology tool and then modified with the Clay, Clay Tubes, Move and Standard brushes (Fig.03).

seems to me u didn't have the gutts to admit what particular "culture" is mis-shown in Your work... the right hand is the clue...

Very nice work, however when you stated that you wanted to make it universal and not attached to any culture, I think it fails on a couple of points. 1. The text in the background is stylized in a way that at first glance it seems like its Arab writing. Upon further inspection the first assumption is eliminated. 2. The womans attire also has a lot of middle eastern influence and given the element above also seems to be geared again towards an arab or middle eastern culture. I think these elements could be revisited a little more to make them indeed more universal

Thanks for your comment. Yes, a pose is stiff, but it is for the reason, my goal was to refer to symbolic figures from Eastern Orthodox icons.As for the "chew thing" my intention was to capture the moment when she keeps a large bit of food inside her mouth but not chewing.It is a conversation.She is about to say something, she has to stop chewing for a while, a large bit of meat stretches her cheek.There is no muscles tension.

Solid process; however, the end result has a stiff pose, and the mouth does not appearing to chewing, it simply appears to be deformed.
