Annika's heart grows cold...
EDIT: I am fortunate enough to be awarded front page again. Newgrounds rules!
I like it very much!
This picture is beautiful and could have quite an interesting story behind it and the dent in the sword could be an also important part of the sword as mentioned by someone before me.
Oh my dear lord that is one amazing illustration! I have nothing bad to say. Simply awesome.
I just have to say this.
How can a human being draw so perfectly... If i could draw as good as this.. I cant even nearly imagine how to create something as wonderful as this is...
Artists like you are coloring our world and for this i am very greatful. This picture is just perfect.
Great proportions, shading, detail, and shadows. Near perfection. This may be the style of sword, but the fore grip bends slightly...
I think the colors you used in this are a step forward for you. I've enjoyed your other art on here, but the colors (while handled nicely) have been so saturated and static that they seemed to take away from the picture a bit.
If you take a look at the face on this picture, it looks more fleshy because blues and purples and pinks are all present and they're used in such a way that the skin feels somewhat translucent (as skin is). It's showing light moving through things, rather then merely bouncing off. The hair also uses color to show volume in a way pure lights and darks can't.
You have a nice variation in the saturation of colors on the clothing, especially between objects, but I think you can keep going on the track you started. Keep exploring those color relationships, because what you achieved here is very exciting. For example, if you make a picture with an outdoor scene, don't just color the grass and the leaves the same overall green (like in your Annika picture) think about how you did the face here and try to apply the same concepts.
