WAY TO FREEDOM by danydiniz WAY TO FREEDOM by danydiniz
Please download to fullview! : )

The original size, in fact, is 12961 x 4174 px (very big!)

With those designs, I intended to create a short story about birds achieving freedom.
In my designs, I have never approached the clothes so deeply, giving them so much meaning. Therefore, those fashion designs are very conceptual, which every detail has a special meaning behind. I put a lot of effort on those!
I hope you take your time to appreciate all the details and to create your own story about my art.
Let me know your thoughts!

Below I will give some short explanation about the designs and concepts.
I advice you to look at the artwork before going on, to imagine your own story about the designs before hearing my version.



CAGED
This bird has a sad, pitiful face, as if it was asking for help.
A prisoner of a small fancy cage, this bird does not have enough space to be itself, therefore, it has very small wings. As you can see, its wings are located on her head, to indicate that even though its body is imprisoned, its mind is not.
It has only one foot to also indicate how it lacks freedom to move.
Its own purpose now should be decorating a room.

VENGEANCE
This bird is also a prisoner, but in a weaker kind of cage, a net. Still, it is angry and indignated with its destiny, represented by its expression.
It also lacks a lot of freedom, and its movements are limited. But nothing is preventing this bird to become beautiful and sublime.
All those feathers in its head represent the imagination, desire and power of this bird's mind.

FIGHTER
Only captive by its feet, this bird is conquering slowly its freedom. It can move, and now a small wing is born on its body.
But all this fight has a price: the red tattoo on its legs would represent the pain and obstacles it will have to overcome.
Its face has a defying expression. Certainty it hasn't lost its courage and determination, not to mention its pride. This bird's mind is also filled with desire and power - represented by the fancy feathers on its head.

REBORN FROM ASHES
A mix of phoenix and peacock, this bird has finally achieved its freedom.
It showcased its beautiful, big wings, stronger as it always have been. Young, filled with pride and strong emotions and taste for adventure - represented by all the bright colors.
It is ready to learn once again about freedom and its costs.
Being shown from a back angle is not only to exhibit its beauty, but also to show its distrust and despise.

EXHALING POWER
Fearless, stronger, courageous, powerful and confident. Those are the words which describe the last bird. In full freedom, represented by its wings wide opened. Its face and the fact that it is shown by its front demonstrate its confidence and will to confront anything that comes on its way.
Its dreams are stronger and more defined.
This bird has also found equilibrium and maturity, not to mention a more complex way to see life.

With this artwork, I wanted not only to criticize the imprisonment of animals, its exploitation or the use/abuse of animals for egoistic reasons, but also when all of this happens to humans.
The feelings this birds shared are felt by many people.
I want to encourage everyone to achieve their own freedom, dreams and to be stronger.


I would like to apologize if I committed any mistakes, as English is not my first language.

I hope you enjoy this designs!

This is awesome! I'm looking to hire a conceptual artist to draw some products for my fashion tech start up. It's a crunch time project, I need it within a week. Would you be interested?

These have a very strong Cirque du Soleil feel to me (maybe because I watched some of their shows recently). I can easily imagine a whole stage production based around the story so eloquently told in 5 illustrations. The work is great and incredibly intricate. It keeps me coming back to stare at it again.

Human! Are you thinking you could control and imprison me, the force who created you? You're giving yourself in to an illusion, for it will be better for you if you awake in time! If you try to imprison me inside of you, you're imprisoned by yourself, chaining yourself, by your own hands and thoughts and that will reflect to the outer world. For I always run free, whether you be here, or not, or gone, whatever means you invent and use! If you really care and put your childish self-centeredness away, humble yourself and see my examples to learn from them. They are not your enemies, but your allies. The choice is yours, I do not interfere, I just react to your deeds. I, who you always call me mother.

Again, a vast variation of colours, beautiful concepts, outlines and shades, and every character has her theme. I enjoy your work so much, a colorful parade of ideas, with the natural feel, in your style, like a fresco from Michelangelo. Congratulations, I hope to see more from you soon!

The colors of the birds are gorgeous, I especially adore the palette of the last one, "Exhaling Power". And oh the details! Instant love :heart:

It's admirable how much effort you've put in this, I love the backstories of each one of the birds and how every pose, every detail has their meaning. I have just one word to say: amazing.

Also, :+fav:

Oh, I love "caged" for its lines and forms, because reminds me of the constraints of mind.
The colors who you used in "reborn form ashes" are so beautiful...
U are an artist! <3

That is a very beautiful concept, and your English is magnificent. It's better than some of the English speakers in me area (and American English is their native language.)
