Thanks.
So I'm hoping that this image works.

I strongly siggest you convert to Photoshop. Your drawings and such look great, especially 'The Spire' and 'Heavenless Reign' but Flash is clearly limiting the quality of what you are making. It cheapens and cartoonifies what would otherwhise look deep and powerful.

Agreed. Back then when I did those named images, I couldn't use Photoshop. So bleh, I might revisit that scene and make something epic. STAY TUNED!.

...And cue image.

Eh, Rihanna vs Purple goth chick. Then I was like, "not to be racist, but dark skinned goth people doesn't really work...'. So bleh. I made her white-esque.
Anatomy may be off, I'm not sure. I guess that her pushing her chest out would legit-amise her arms being shorter?

And to that, I've made a concept :
A complete redux of the three scenes in the middle of this thread, including two more which I decided not to draw prior.
End of the world : A giant fissure that runs through the entire planet. It ends at where part of the planet has been cut clean off. (Imagine a straight line through a circle)
Fallen escape : As the rampaging super-powered killer monster, I take a different turn of heart and defend [for unknown reasons] a handful of people from another super-powered killer monster. Their escape pod launches, and I fight the other, to stall time. I fail, and the other monster grants chase, hunting down the escape pod and sending it to crash land in the stainless fields. </end dream>

On a side note, the pod bared (?) great resemblance to a capsule vehicle from DBZ.

The image is actually about 1300 x 400, but I think I might double it. ... Just for shits and giggles.

Oh, har har har. I just realised the thing on the Spire looks vaguely like a dick, and in relation to that, the sun/moon looks like an asshole. Oh ho ho, sexual subliminals.

Colouring has commenced.
Also, I need advice on doing the grass without being cheap and using something like a grass brush.

School starts tomorrow. I chose art as a subject. God knows whether that'll increase, or decrease updates here.

Another. If anyone reads this advise me on, how I would make the escape pod more subtle (so it doesn't stick out as much...) and also if I should redo the rocks on the cliff face - because it looks sortof... nggguh [to me anyway].

And so the innocence of the moonlit sky was plagued by a vile sorrow, spilling itself unto the land and tainting even, the stainless fields.

Honestly, it didn't come out as good as I had hoped. Though, that's probably because of my lack of skills. I mean, the grass looks like fur. ...In the middle of a barren valley.

Alas, I forgot the image on the last post.

I developed more on the last image, and made something epic. At least, to me, anyway.
[Full, intended wallpaper 1680x1050 size]

And yeah, I am using it as a wallpaper. I'd been using those ones from 2advanced studios for the last year, and it got sort of old, even with all 5 colours.
Also, POST 69. I was gonna do something erotic. But leh.

I had a dream of me... and Brock and Misty - Yeah - in a small boat, passing through the canals of a regal city tinted green.
It looked about, I dunno, a million times more epic in my head, but alas, my skills prevent me from doing such detailed work.

I was originally going to have a poem-type thing on the side of the image, but that would probably just wreck it, so leh -
She loves me ---,
yet, I do nothing,
bound by my own distant
and
drowned out world,
seeminglessly
vague - in a call of orange,
and red.

I fear the shudder
of the butterflies wings -
whether,
the future holds our destinies
a telltale singsong
or non-existent and false -
I do nothing.

So she took him to a spot
He didn't know about
Somewhere in the apartment parking lot, she said
I don't normally take dates in here
Security came and said "I'm sorry there's no skating here"

So they Kick, Push Kick, Push Kick, Push Kick, Push Coast
And the way they roll just lovers in the twine with no place to go

I tried something like your style once with pastels. Nobody liked it. But I like yours. For you, since you've already established a style, you have instant recognition for whatever you post as 'art', while I have nothing. I wish you luck. These are great.

:Don't mean to sound like a self-sob, sorry.

Every time I listen to a song, I have a tendency to disregard its actual entertainment value, and specifically listen for technical qualities, but more importantly, some sort of story to go with it.
For example, the previous images with words, or lyrics on them [specifically, Kick Push, and Death is on the tip...] are based on songs by Lupe Fiasco -
And here's another, "The Coolest", a WIP.

The full image is 2500 x 1500. I'll probably reduce it by 33% though, cause... Yeah, 2500, I couldn't be bothered painting that many pixels.

No Heaven up above you, no Hell underneath you
And nowhere will receive thee, so
Shed no tear, when we're not here
And keep your faith, as we chase...

is the character in front supposed to be glowing, or is that the light from the angel? if so, remove the glow around his feet.
