Annika's heart grows cold...

EDIT: I am fortunate enough to be awarded front page again. Newgrounds rules!



Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great proportions, shading, detail, and shadows. Near perfection. This may be the style of sword, but the fore grip bends slightly...

Very nice!

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.

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.
