Etched Oracles by ArtDoge Etched Oracles by ArtDoge
A fun quicky done while listening to The Passportal by Team Sleep.

Two of many Holomen, the left one holds something which I can't reveal the purpose of yet.

Done in Photoshop CS 8 hours, no references used,

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-01-23
Etched Oracles by ~343GuiltySpark - The artist does not reveal much about the Holomen, but their suits which seem to reflect galaxies from afar, and their overall enigmatic appearance make me think they could be some sort special agents of the universe itself. Whoever they may be and whatever secrets they may hold, they look simply fantastic in this piece! ( Featured by MidnightExigent )

you created this when you were 15?

Those guys are badass, like sirs, but robots that wear the universe as suits. Cool!

Wow! this is so cool, amazing, great!
Did you make this picture?
Beautiful job! :D
ArtDoge Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. And yes, I did make this image, as I do not upload other artist's work in my own gallery.

this looks like daft punk in the future

I know, right. I was actually going to say that, but you beat me to it!

Ha, space suit.

I want one.

Is anyone else reminded of Daft Punk?
FeaturelessMask Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011
I think there should be a sitcom around these two. The one on the right is obviously the older, seasoned model (thinking William Shatner). while the one on the right is the new guard, border line effeminate professional who needs to learn a sense of daring-do.

The one on the right is staring at me, I know he has no eyes but..

..anyway ...great picture

(I hope my english is fine) xD
brouwjon Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2011
A lot of the stuff on deviant is really good, but all the same.

this looks different from other stuff. pretty creative. i like the guy on the left, how his head just hangs there, how its just a face and nothing else.
i like that their suits are images of deep space.

Definitely play around with this idea some more. It's interesting.
Aldiron Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2010
You need to make more of the character on the left! That's my favorite thing... ever. lol.

One-Eared-Jack Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my gosh, I love their starry suits.

All of the creatures and creations in your gallery are gorgeous.

Even the creepy ones.
MBDavenport Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
I was wondering when i'd see a DD in your gallery. Few are more deserving.
IHMPCYPAWB Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
I faved this a while ago, but, looking over it again, is the hand of the left guy supposed to be backwards...?
ArtDoge Featured By Owner May 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
no it's his left hand, with his palm showing.
IHMPCYPAWB Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
Oh, ok, gotcha.

DeathNoteGurl Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009
This is actually one of the most amazing pieces I've seen in a long time.

The amount of detail of just incredible, and I love pieces that let you use your imagination.

This is just an amazing job. Seriously, well done. I hope to see more pieces like this.
mindstrel Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2009
Wow, I definitely wouldn't want to meet these guys in a dark alley.
ArtDoge Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
why would they be there in the first place?
mindstrel Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
I have no idea, but whatever the reason would be, I'm guessing it wouldn't include my well-being.

(They look really awesome, though dangerous.)
M0AI Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome, AWESOME designs.
Azzen Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I got a really "Daft Punk" ish vibe seeing this, for some reason. That, but much more mysterious and powerful.
Razvanrulls Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2008
