who can't relate to gummi bears?
who hasn't felt like an outside at one time in their life?

I can almost hear the red bears' clique-y gossip and i can almost see the green bear's drooping posture. what really impresses me most is the fact that all gummi bears have that "posture" but you utilized it in different ways to mean different things in the same work. (ie all the red ones are huddled, leaning in towards each other)

i'm the green one. only i'd be going "poor idiots. . . they have no idea" while slowly rubbing my hands together

i love them all, gummie art rules!
garberlish Featured By Owner May 2, 2005
ooo those red gummie bears i always knew they were bad they just tasted too good - no seriously i love the way you have captured such a detructive attitude that plagues so many peoples lives in this simple and child like way - especially as the need to fit in is most evident in primary and early high school years and relating that to something that children of that age group understand - plus i love gummie bears :) love the lighting nice use of depth of field for emphasis

the-darksiren Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2005
What a great idea! And I love it how you illustrated the concept by using gummi bears!

Oh my gosh I remember this one. I commented on this when it first came out XD

"Both Powerful and delicious"

I suppose this time around I should say something more substantial. the meeting of the warm light and cool light is a nice effect. It increases the green :gummybear: isolation from the rest, who are bathed in orange light. It's a very subtle symbolism that adds so much to the piece, without even realing it. Good job :D
McCandless Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2005
i really like it . . . it's a nice idea and as others have said the blur is great . . . you should do some more like this, it'd be interesting to see how you use them

wow. i'm hungry now. can i eat the red ones? they're my favorite flavor and they're being mean to the green . . .
wax0nightmare Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2004
aww i know how that feels..

this is so professional and it so simple too, the gummy colours really make it unique and the blured green one is a great touch..tell you what..i'll eat him and put him outa his misery!! lol
ph33rm3 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2004

but wonderful concept
Carlunchi Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2004
vos ya sabes q es una de mis favoritos y una de las fotos q mas mas mas me gusta de vos !!!

Zendar Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2004   Photographer
hey, klasse shot wirklich! dann kann ich ja mein Gummibärchen-Projekt von der ToDo-Liste streichen *grrr* :-) hatte das Foto bisher garnicht gesehen in deiner gallery... wirklich klasse geworden! Überlege nur gerade, ob es nicht ev. besser gewesen wäre, den kleinen in Hintergrund zu fokussieren ... aber darüber lässt sich streiten, ich finds in jedem Fall klasse :)
baikahl Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2004   Photographer
naja, dann wäre die große gruppe aus dem fokus, das würde glaube ich
nicht so gut aussehen. So unterstützt das noch den Punkt, dass der grüne
ausgegrenzt und alleine ist ;p Aber mach doch ruhig auch eins! Bin gespannt
deine version zu sehen!
scraches Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2004   Photographer
Great idea and great shot. :clap:
niimo Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2004  Hobbyist Photographer
Fantastically composed! An old idea that gives a fresh and lighthearted view. It is cool that there is a sort of symbolism with the gummy bears which I would associate with being a kid; this concept is something that too many kids deal with at some point.

Very well done!

SylvieRider Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2004
nice and sweet :kiss:
brain87 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2004
Absolutely great, it really express its meaning and the shallow depth of field renders it better, only problem is that it took me a bit to see that green beary there, maybe you could choose a perspective or some elements in the compositions to draw your attention on it.
sotoxic Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2004
this is great
sirschuster Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2004
Oh my gosh, could this picture have anymore comments?? I had to scroll forever!

Anyway, very funny, and all that stuff everyone else said.

wow... the colors... I love the color use of color in this with the whole red/green and blue/orange thing :D :heart:
nickgoodenough Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004   Photographer

baikahl Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2004   Photographer

Would be nice if you could send me the link by note if you happen to find it again..
nickgoodenough Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004   Photographer
did you post this on as well? i've seen it before...
xerivok Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004
i agree the blur just makes it perfect
Dane2082 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004
Awesome concept!! lol.. I've always looked at the odd gummybears and ate them first - like eutbhanasia! ^_- I love your work :)
arkanista Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004
Soooooo sweet :)
I love gummy bears :)
And the colours here are so sweet
just like the gellys
and the green one really looks like an outsider :)

I love gellys. pls see this --> [link]
it's not artistic but there are gellys :)
MelyannaM Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004
Is there anyone who didn't feel like an outsider? We all know that it's imposibble to be loved by whole world, but it's always sad and so humiliating when you're so obviously rejected by a bigger group of people just becous you are... you. I like how you played with the colours of the gummy bears to make the effect of isolation. And I like the calming background. Though, as someone said before, maybe the focus is a bit wrong. Maybe you should have putted the green, isolated bear in the frst plan and not so blury. Anyhow, this is an extraordinary pic and it has found it's way to the hearts of art lovers :)

Favorited :+fav:
baikahl Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004   Photographer
thank you very much for sharing your thoughts, agree 100% :)
MelyannaM Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2004
I'm glad and you're welcome :)

Would you check my gallery and fav. one of my works?
mark-cabrera Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004  Professional Photographer
lmao, very very funny. Although the biggest complaint ihave on this piece is simply the gummy bears in the foreground are out of focus. I can tell the effect was supposed to be, red in focus green blured. But still....idk, good job overall.
northerain Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004  Professional Digital Artist

sophia-y Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2004

Excellent idea.
The way you've chosen to express it is really interesting and unique.
Great choice of angle too.
