The future is bright.
Not alot to say critcally about this piece, as it's fairly simple, but the simpleness lends itself to the meaning that you're trying to convey. I think you accurately hit that feeling, as I know exactly what you're talking about. Good work though, keep it up.
Oh, and good luck on the being laid off thing. :]
Yes, I went for simple, although coloring the background took me a fair amount of time, because I felt it best described the unknown. It's mysterious and can mean different things to different people. So there's no detail in the artwork as such.
I was mainly focusing on color use and powerful imagery, hence the power-stance the character is in.
Nice to know somebody, who understands the message of this, and always a brilliant review from you XIII13!
The Dingo ;)
I saw you make this in the NGSM and I must say, I'm impressed. I especially like the glow on the cross, very nice touch there. The only thing that I'd ahve done personally, would be to darken the front barbed wire. Imo, it would make the cross stand out more, as well as make it blend in a little. All in al though, a very nice wallpaper, Would certainly think about using it if I had my own iTouch. :]
Wow, thanks for the review and the nice score.
I'll consider your advice and test it out. After all I'm still learning and appreciate any advice that will improve my work.
I quite like the smoke in this. Just some things I'd have tried, is a different font, or putting 4 wind filters on it so that it looks windy, or something. Anyway, the font doesn't fit all that much. I'd much prefer it with out the text. The smoke is very, very nice though. Care to PM a link to the custom brushes?
As soon as I find the brush files I will send them your way. Sure.
Thanks for the comments, especially about the font, I was aware at the time it looked a bit, but this was the first piece I ever made so naturally I made mistakes.
You'll notice I forget to blend in the hole in the "O" in smoke. Silly errors, but hopefully I'm improving.
Thanks for your comments.
I really love this peice. Great colors, great compisition, everything. The pose is a little off for snaking though, IMO. Maybe it's just the angle. Anyway, 5'd, 9'd and fav'd.
First off, get some better software. It's intensly hard to do anything good in MS Paint. Next, try drawing stuff. Could be anything. Desk, chair, your computer. Once you get good at drawing in real life, save up for a Pen Tablet. And, please, please, for god's sake, don't draw by using the line tool. Honestely, it looks really bad.
wat is so bad about it
It's actually really good, and I think the title fits. Makes me think of a Rainforest.
Just about everything's perfect. Only thing is, his legs seem a bit out of proportion with his body, but nothing major. As for what the picture means, I know what it's like. Feeling trapped. And maybe that window, with its bright sunlight ain't such a good thing, you know? Cause you're trapped in there, knowing how much better it is on the outside, but never being able to make it there. Just my take on the piece.
Glad you feel me dude... Interesting take on it though. I never thought of it like that, it's like a temptation that can't be achieved, so it just dwells making you ruin yourself to get it, which is really nothing.
Thanks for that. :)
He seems kinda like a modern version of the Grim Reaper. Green eyes look a lot like night vision goggles used by soldiers. He's wearing kinda ratty clothes, and poverty is another big killer. He looks a bit sickly, and again that kills a lot. There's more but I'm not going to list them all out. It just seems to be a modern manifestation of Death, or the Grim Reaper.
Cool story, bro.
Interesting theory you've put out there, but I wanted it to be some visualization of noise. And of course i did it for the lulz, not for some deeper interpretation
You've done it again, Rhunyc.
Completely matched me in a picture. I don't know why, but at lot of your pictures really match aspects of my life. This was me until a few months ago, and it kind of scares me because it's who I was, not who I am. It's like looking into a mirror and seeing someone who looks like you but isn't you. Anyway, sorry for rambling on, I get carried away sometimes. :P The actual art is amazing, as always, and I love how you made his eyes stand out from his body.
Score one more for me! :)
Thanks a lot for the review though, it's quite interesting to see how something I made in my own despairs relates to so many people... :D It's almost comforting in a way that I know I'm not alone, after all..
I appreciate the nice words though. :)
I have a place just like that, where I can go to just escape it all. Suprisingly, it looks alot like what you draw. Anyway, keep it up. You're my favourite artist on Newgrounds and I love your stuff.
Maan, thank YOU for the kind words. I'm honored to be your favorite artist on all of newgrounds!!
It means a LOT to me, so thank you. <3
Hopefully I don't disappoint in the future. :)
