Annika's heart grows cold...
EDIT: I am fortunate enough to be awarded front page again. Newgrounds rules!
aww.. what happened to her?
This is a first for me as far as writing reviews for art on the newgrounds site. When I checked out your submission from last month 'Annika' the newgrounds site would seem to start getting more talented submissions.
First thing I noticed is differences in focus points in your subject. Like... the etheral facial features contrasted alot with the fine details in the armor she wore. Any more contrasting differences and both points would seemed detached. Its a good thing you went as far as you did and not any further. Great choice of background. The entire person seemed to 'pop' right out of the canvas.
I would love it if the armor details were just as smokey as the rest of her but the hardness emotion was well understood. I just wished that there were something 'just a little bit' recognizable that would make it obvious she is the same person as 'Anneka' in the other submission.
As far as the title goes, maybe darkness would describe her further down the line after she went through the wringer a bit more. This moment in the picture seemed more emotionless and 'cold'. I can definitely feel a back story in the 'potential' Anneka series.
i love it :D
she's lovely and has a mysterous look. rocks!
You did it again
Another epic art by you :D.
I mean your art is simply amazing simple and sophisticated at the same time..
Great art , the overall of the photo feels really cold (in a good way) and really makes it stand out...
When first looking at this piece the eyes donâEUTMt seem to focus on anything in particular. Then the details of the armor and the sword bring the attention to the complexity of the designs. It slowly becomes apparent that the proportions of the figure depicted are skewed, as though the shoulders are too broad, and the torso is not long enough. This feels like an insult, such an intricate piece with such a large flaw. A step back and time to process more reveals that the image isnâEUTMt flawed, the perception is. The large pieces of armor on the shoulders, the thick leather gloves, the short cape, and the separate pieces of chest armor throw off the characterâEUTMs appearance. After this realization the piece gains a whole new life, as it makes the character appear as though the almost oversized armor is necessary to protect the broken inner-self. This speaks volumes in itself, especially when its emphasized by the darkness of the rest of the picture, the bright armor a direct conflict with the surroundings and the character itself.
At least, that was my personal impression.
