Woah. It's kinda magical, you know? I mean, I stared at it for about 15 minutes and I thought about it all. About this alternative universes, about Cas and his "observer" role, or, like the title says, the creation role. And somehow I came to thinking about the universe and space and destiny and all that shit. And I was like "woah, this... this is so powerful art".

 It's so
peaceful and.. huh, mystical? Nah, it's not that word that i looking for, but I think that I'm close. The atmosphere is indescribable (I also read all comments and and among them there also appropriate word "melancholy" and I agree with that). Your choice about music is very accurate. And when I say "very accurate" I mean "holy shit, cause of the existence of this music was to be part of the art"!

So, you do incredible good work here.
One more question: this pulsing, blue light in the middle of circle has some meaning or is that just blue, pulsing light and
I'm starting to exaggerate with the interpretation? Anyway, it's look subtly and gently. All this machine is like little piece of masterpiece.

Woah. I really don't know how to even... answer this. I love every word you said, and you such a nice person, and what I really like - is that you got everyting right. It means, the message I put into it, is readable.
When I was making it (drawing and animating), I stared like you did, and thought about it all too. So, maybe, this art creates a... don't know, connection. Makes a void where you can listen to the music and think about space, and destiny, and humans... yeah xD

Thank you for your comment, is means a lot to me, really. :heart: I just... I have no words now, and I nearly want to cry a bit, because - awwww. You got the atmosphere, and you love it. So thank you again :heart:

P.S. It's just a blue pulsing light in the middle of circle. (: Nothing more. I liked to think about it as a little grace-engine which moves all the stuff and mechanism Castiel's watching to.

Oh great. And now I want to thanks you for answering me, I feel so weird I want to thanks you for thanks me... Uhm. Anyway.
I-I'm, oh man, I feel this warm inside when someone is just happy or moved just 'cause I-- I do what? I put myself in the role of fascinated observer your work and I'm so glad that you appreciate my thoughts. :blushes 

And wait a sec... You create the art about creating (and destiny, and I basically think that you managed to catch a piece of space here. It also remind me a little of limbo state.), the art creates the connection (yeah, it's like common thought) and it pushed me to thinking about stuff and this way I create my own thoughts... It's demiurge-ception? Create-ception? Ok, I just leave it here, 'cause I started to maim English. C:

Oh, I love the grace-engine idea! It's a nice accent!

But... but... we can thank each other for thanking each other... and...yeah :D
I feel this warm when somebody says such words about my stuff :heart: 
And you inspired me to draw Gabriel one, I couldn't make it for, like, a year? And now I just sat and draw Gabriel version of Demiurge (I think, it calls Archangel-Demiurge? or Trikster-Demiurge?) So yeah, when I animate the mechanism and pick the right music, you will be able to be another observer or took a role of another creator^^ And think of another space :heart:

Wow. That was... deep. And I really thought the same while creating - about limbo state, destiny and stuff... and... wow. Maybe one demiurge made me do it?
I think, it is possible.o0

I'm glad you like it^^ :hug:

Hello,
This is one of my favorite art pieces, and I have written a review of it and posted it on my DeviantArt journal and my blog.

Oh... wait... I read it and I was in shock, definitely. It's the first time I get such a thorough review of my work, and... Has it taken long for you to write it? Because it's huge and detailed.
I really appreciate it, thank you a lot.
Honestly, you opened my eyes with the couple of your thoughts, and I don't know where I can reply, but...
It all was very interesting. But the idea is not quite true: all the platforms, all the words are 'alternative universes' (I tended it as the most common AUs in Supernatural fandom). (And... Honestly? This is the first time I hear about this fanfic mermaid story :D, is it well-known? But I knew there was a time with a bunch of mermaid-SPN arts, and I gave it a place.)
I confess, I should add more information about these worlds which Castiel-demiurge created, but I was inspired by the book called 'The Demiurges' games' (Игры демиургов), and I made an animation artwork and a fanfic story, but I know a plenty of people wouldn't be able to read it... and all I can do - it's just telling them more about this frozen moment of Castiel's eternity, if they want too.
But there was the second purpose for me - to let viewer watch calm and peaceful art, take a moment and listen to the beautiful music, and think about something we can't reach, but can imagine.
There are six stories in art, but there's one more - the one that everyone's making up for himself.
I enjoyed all of your theories, they are all great and sometimes they are right, and I'm so grateful :heart:

I don't remember how long it took to write the review, but I'm a writer and I never keep track of the time it takes to write anything.

Okay, all the platforms are "alternate universes" and don't reference canon at all. Interesting. Now I'm more intrigued about what each platform means, except for the mermaid platform, since you explained that one. I wonder if you should explain what each little platform story means in the artwork description; I had so much fun coming up with my own interpretation, and I'd hate for someone else to miss out on that experience if all they need to do is read what's in the description. But that's not up to me; I'm just thinking aloud here.

:) I'm not sure if you're kidding when you say you haven't heard of "Out of the Deep," but in case you aren't, it's a novel-length epic set in an AU where angels are merpeople (who call themselves "fin-kin"). (Spoilers ahead) Sam and Jess are scientists, Dean and Bobby are ship mechanics, and they all work on a research vessel owned by Lilith, an exotic animal collector who's set her sights on owning a merman. You can find it here: [link].

This art piece is calm and peaceful in many ways. The viewer observes the scene from some distance away, so the viewer is unaffected by whatever happens and can stay safe. The music and neutral colors lend a feeling of calm to the artwork. Castiel--the large version of him sitting at the table--certainly seems to be at peace, too. But the small stories on the bobbing and rotating platform don't seem calm or peaceful. I don't think this is a bad thing; the stories they tell just seem to be very dynamic and busy.

I love your response to my review. You've answered many of the questions I had about the piece, and I appreciate it. Keep making intriguing art.

This is absolutely beautiful! The idea of this is brilliant. The art itself (or at the very least the structure) seems very balanced even as the two center pieces orbit. The music that goes with this is a tad bit nostalgic and very melancholy, it goes well with this as well. The gears are a nice touch too.

I am curious about the title "Demiurge" though. What is the story/reasoning behind it?

ThetarielWhitesinger Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, I really appreciate your comment... I read it very attentively, and it makes me be proud of my work. Thank you :heart:
I'm really happy that someone could see every hint I made with love. And understand its meaning (though, I think, it's really difficult to understand it without the story).

You know, demiurge - is the one, who creates worlds. Sometimes they are not so good and perfect, sometimes they are quite better. And... Castiel (I think, this name could be his real name, as for demiurge) is watching his worlds (universes, etc).
The worlds are AU for Supernatural (which are most common in fandom), as School, Future, Fantasy and two roads for the canon.
I read the book 'The Demiurge's games' (Игры демиургов) and I saw the Castiel being one of this demiurge. As the Creator.
And I wanted to draw three-colored silhouetted animation, like... you know, frozen moment of his life. When he's watching world he created, and... everyone could take a look with him. For a while.
Of course, where's a little story for every 'world' presented there, I wrote it (you can see the link in the description), but I assume you can't read it, unfortunately... I'm sorry for this. And my English is not so rich with words, I wish I could rewrite it for all of you, but I'm afraif it might kill the atmosphere for this unique moment.
However, I tried to give you a little presentation of it. Maybe, I should add something in description either.
And I'm still excited of how did you describe it.
Thank you :heart:

Wow, your explanation of this is perfect! I think your English is just fine.

I wish I could read "The Demiurge's Games", it sounds like something I would really enjoy. From the way you explain it though, it seems like you got your idea across to your art perfectly.

Again, beautiful work!

The one time Castiel was God maybe?
If he had been a greater God, than letting the power go to his pride.

I like to think that...
