Annika's heart grows cold...
EDIT: I am fortunate enough to be awarded front page again. Newgrounds rules!
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.
as to the response to hyperions response from the
you could always past it and put it in ur authors comments, oh and i also love how u can see a storyline coming into these great pictures, truly the best artwork i've seen on newgrounds!!! u deserve one of yours next to the mona lisa! lol :)
Muy, muy muy muy muy, bueno. Ci, es muy bueno.
The attention to fine detail, the background, the character itself all are amazing and wonderful. What really captivated me was the eyes of Annika; it is said that the human eye can convey a lot, and this piece truly reflects that. The cold, icy look that seems to tell a story is not something that any average artist is able to create. This artwork makes one want to guess the story behind this, and thus brings the audience's attention to the rest of the picture.
The background has stunning detail, and everthing thing about the piece seems to have been given much though; the mood of the picture seems to fit perfectly with everything in the artwork. The background also contributes to the overall greatness of the piece. The lifeless trees, grey skies and the falling leaves are all drawn with magnificent detail and ultimately ensures that this piece will be a memorable artwork.
This artwork should be the basis and soemthing to look up to for all artists-- the fine detail, the thought put into it, and ultimately how the whole picture blends so well.
I greatly enjoyed this, and I hope that you will continue the series and give us more of these amazing work.
P.S. She's hawt :D
I really admire the attention to the small details. And The atmosphere/color gives it a very realistic nostalgic feel.
Overall.. Very effective artwork.
Keep up the goodwork
