This was inspired by Atsirka.

The Character is the concept of hope, portrayed by my model of Akitam

I made this picture to represent Celestial Akitam becoming free, stepping from a photograph. The light source within the frame is coming from over the artist left shoulder. But where she becomes free you see the stump, and Hope have taken on a different shadow. One from the overhead light of the room she is stepping into.

This is very beautiful, The light and shadow are perfect, a beautiful glow.  But favorite part is the body, I love that she is stars and the beauty of space. heaven, to me. What does the cat add in the piece?

The cat represents free spirit and unpredictability.    It also represents encouragement, and is reason that one day a part of her will become  a feline and cannot be chained.

If you ever have the time, check out "Show Girl" by Eppie Short. (I live with this artist :P). This work is very similar to this exhibition she did.

She isn't really in the scene at the moment, but your work just reminded me of her.

Interesting concept, and it's very nice :clap:
I just wonder why neither the cat nor Hope have the smallest shadow... Did I miss something conceptual?

Ok, my english is not the best so let me try and figure this out. You are asking why both Trouble and hope have the same size shadow. Am I missing something. I barely see troubles shadow as it extends only slightly from the stump, there is shadow on the stump

there is but one light in the scene, it is coming from left and almost overhead. Now when hope and log extend past frame, it picks up another light which gives it a shadow in front. The frame was actually added in the 3d Scene on a primitive that had a spot attached to the outside to represent room light. Does this explain what you asked.

Thank you so much for your response... and my apologies: I have wrongly decoded the shadows on the bottom of the picture.
It remains a very beautiful picture, I love the concept you presented in it.

You inspired it. I printed it out to hang on my wall in the bedroom and it prints on high glossy photo paper really well.
