When it comes to drawings, few of the pieces around here get my eyes..but when I saw the first page and this picture I really hoped that you will request a critique.
In my opinion this is an outstanding piece! I cant even imagine how creative you could be, and how GOOD can you be when it comes to drawings and I must say no, it is not easy to make a beautiful piece and to set the right colors, with the right "ambiance" for the characters themselves. You´ve done a magnificent job on "Death´s" clothes that they look more like fading, more like a specter which is amazing in my opinion! Also the details make me go WOW because through them we can see that you worked really hard to get those results. The blood, the light..the concept! Is all so well thought and it just leaves me speechless about it! Great job!

I hardly write critiques but once in a while I come across a piece of work that is so breathtaking that I just have to say something about it. This reminds me almost of Hades and Persephone.

Firstly, I love the colour scheme of this painting. Pinkish hues are my favourite. I'm a sucker for that colour. The way her lightness contrasts against his blackness is beautiful, as though both of them form a yin-yang shape in the centre of the painting.

The detail in this is brilliant. The artist has added a softness to her skin that almost makes her look like she is glowing. I have no complaints about the anatomy either, everything seems correctly in proportion. The movement of his robes and her dress adds peaceful movement to the piece. The warm hues against the cool darks please the eye, making it a delightful painting to stare at.

My only critique would be that the shadows may not be perfectly spot on. For example, I would have expected heavier shadows to be cast by her on the cloth draped from his knees, which would require darker values in that area.

However, it isn't a matter serious enough to detract from the overall impact of the image. Seen in thumbnail view, it still registers as a beautiful composition.

what xD he is lol idk not wierd at all lmao
ColbaltSunfire Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
You are not weird, and I agree with you. Besides, there's always been something more seductive about those not necessarily on the side of good. And you can't farther than death, seeing as how most people see it as the "ultimate evil," which in my opinion is kind of dumb but, oh well.

I think they're more attracted to the aura presented in these images. Strong, intimidating, deadly. Presentation goes a long way when it comes to attraction.

Amazing, creepy and adorable all at the same time. Spectacular, this is easily the best of the three and I must say that this is a master piece in my eyes, if Death looks like this I won't even consider not going with him. Well done, keep it up.
