Hey everyone! It's been a while since my last post so I thought I'd share something I did recently. This image is part of a series I did called Deliverance. The rest of the series can be found on my website: http://www.jg-art.com/deliverance.htm.
Everything created in 3ds Max, rendered in Vray, some postwork done in Photoshop.
Comments and critique welcome.
Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks for your comments everyone!
@ alessimarco: the image is symbolic of a place where the individual has a chance to evolve further. "Gnosis" comes from the Greek and refers to knowledge. Bells are rung to indicate the start or end to some event, and I used the bell here to represent the possibility of an evolutionary step forward through knowledge, "gnosis", gained of one's true self. And "Become" on the grave stone represents the final state of growth of an individual. For me, an individual is always in a state of becoming, always growing and evolving into something greater and higher than what one was the day before. When that "becoming" ceases, then we have "become". And I just used the tombstone to symbolize the death of the process of becoming. And this just doesn't point to physical death, but being closed off to any kind of growth and learning can be seen as the death of one's character (sense of self).
Ok, hope that wasn't too deep. :)
