I kinda wonder if you were not going for a rigid hexagram effect when you drew your goofy pentagrams. :P They make the monster seem like he's crying out to his mamma. "Mamma! Help! There's too many people! Mamma!"

I'm not ready to judge this with values like 'good and evil.' If I had this one moment to make an opinion, I see coexistence over wickedness. Why do we default to something large and weird being 'bad' and masses of people being 'innocent?' Pending the eyes and relation, this picture swings malice and justice fluidly. Very interesting piece but hardly any one story.

The raging river of people are just as compelling as this monster...holy cow.

The only thing that particularly look out of place to me are those drawn-star pentagrams. We have the starkly-realistic, living and breathing, mass of nude bodies streaming and bending into this horrifying other-worldly demon...and then we got these stars that almost seem to hint at "innocence" or "youthfulness" and it kinda throws me off from the epic spectacle of hell that the rest of this beckons to represent.

Why the stars, in that fashion?

Still voting 5.

You described it very well, and the stars were all intentional. Maybe they don't have the effect I was hoping for, because you're not the first to be put off by those, though. Anyway, thank you. :)

My first thought when seeing this was "wicked!" And then the first guy to write a review here also used the word wicked. Excellent work dude.
