Die Verwandlung by Nachan Die Verwandlung by Nachan
simply Kafka inspired.
I'm overwhelmed by the beauty of his writings, at the moment. damn.

I'm sorry if the insect doesn't look really accurate, lol, I didn't have the braveness to look at pictures of beatles or something like that for reference... I just went with my imagination!XD

pen, watercolor and Photoshop.

Well, this was simply inspired by reading too much Kafka, I suppose!XD

If this is a sort of "free style" piece, bravo. And no beetle references to top it off? Yeah, good work.

:D Yes, Italian is very beautiful. I am working at a company whos „mother companies“ are French and Italian once (they are put together under one company so to say). I often have to change Italian brochures or catalogues into German –and I have to say the Italian things sound so beautiful. My colleague can speak Italian very well, and when he is phoning someone in Italy I always love listening. :3

I learned French in school, but sadly I nearly forgot everything again. *sigh*

ahah, you know, I hate insects and all (no offence mr Samsa!!XD), cockroach, beatles or how do you prefer to call them... (in particoular the insect I used here is called, in italian, something like "cervo volante"... wtf!?!XD) so I had to add some more humanish touch, mwah!

Good god.

For my 2D Design class, we had to take an object and in several frames transform it into something else. I transformed a man into a bug, inspired by Kafka's "Die Verwandlung."

I finished it just before checking my deviantART and seeing this.

Whoa. :o

Davvero molto raffinato, mi piace un sacco! Forse sto dicendo una cosa ovvia ma sarebbe perfetto per la copertina del libro... lo scarafaggio davanti e Gregor Samsa in quarta di copertina.

ah, I read the story in high school and I didn't get it either, lol, but now that I've entered the "Kafka world" it looks absolutely clear to me, and even more terrible!
thanks, I'm glad you liked it, I just try always to improve a bit!:P
