The Weeping Woman by stroggtank The Weeping Woman by stroggtank
Created for a Collective Exhibition in Mexico, as homage for a mexican Rock Band. It depicts my vision of one of many versions of the mexican legend of "The Weeping Woman" (La Llorona) and it is inspired by the song of the same name by the band Caifanes. The legend tells the story of a young woman who has lost her children, even after her death, during nights her spirit keeps weeping in sadness looking for them. Again, this is one of many versions :)

Thanks for watching!

Created in Mudbox & Maya, rendered with mental ray and post in Photoshop.

 Robot Unicorn Attack

Upon loading up the game and probably startling Google Chrome itself with the absurdness of what I was playing, the word disappointment temporarily fell out of my vocabulary because after even 30 seconds of playing my head was filled with rainbows, amazement, and awe at how simultaneously simple and entertaining the experience was. Aside from the frightening array of colours that would distress even the hardiest of retinas, everything about this game is unbelievably simple and easy to grasp. Taking the fact that you are a mechanical unicorn as given, you are thrown into a bubblegum world of fantasy and sparkle which, upon witnessing it with your own eyes, will make you understand what those Skittles talk about when they bang on about ”tasting the rainbow”. As a robot unicorn, your job is to simply run endlessly across terrain, jumping intermittently when the ground beneath you ends and landing on the next platform. The jumps become increasingly difficult as you progress, with terrain and giant star-shaped obstacles getting in your way.

wow! the atmosphere of the picture is just incredible! by the way, I've seen some episode of the tv show Grimm, which was devoted to the legend of La Llorona. Though, the woman in that show was dressed up in a wedding dress and was quite scaring, but you did a great work drawing it all cute and fancy! ))
