Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to hell >:)



That is awesome, well done!

The style reminds me a bit of this really cool interactive flash animation thingy, you can view it here:

If you're ever up for doing such an interactive kind of scroller thingy let me know, as I'd love to code it. :)

interactive scroller... hmm il think of it but i want to see more examples of how u will be doin it il message u and thank u for the review

Pretty captivating.

There's some pretty cool visuals meshed into this. I like the figure clawing at their own face, sharp teeth, with the tongue thing in the top right, and I also like mouth eyes in the bottom left.

But there's some pretty goofy/wacky looking faces or details that shift it away from being completely menacing. The oversized nose, middle bottom, for example looks moreso funny, especially with his fu man chu tentacle-stache. The very top-right, bug-eyed grin thing that's sort of a mix of Hellsing with Trollface is a little goofy lookin' too, but that might be because of the styles of teeth. You have a portrait of different maws all over the place here. Some human looking teeth among sharp, demonic teeth...but up in the top-right, at least, you have cartoon piano keys. See what I mean?

There's also many missed opportunities to make use of shadows to your advantage. Blur your eyes looking at this and focus on blackness. Some of the coolest features are engulfed or incorporate shadows...ESPECIALLY the bottom right half-face (really cool and atmospheric), the two in the top left, the scream face with a figure in it's mouth, and the one I pointed out was one of my favorites (face clawing). If you incorporated MORE shadows into this piece, it would have been more eye-grabbing, because the faces would pop out...even if it were as simple as a burn tool or just shading appropriately in between might be too light. That top right section could use just as much or more shadows as the bottom right section has. See what I mean?

If you want dark...go for DARK, and see how subtle lighting can help things in the scary shadows pop out...if only just enough to be noticed. It would improve the intended atmosphere you were going for here tremendously.

Voted 5! :D

thanks for the review and the overside nose is called "tengu" wh no ich is a mask that has myths or use for plays, some folk tales in japan says its a demon (akuma meaning demon or devil in japanese) i included this because its part of a demon and its from japan but hey its japans idea it may look funny as u think but i dont think ur wrong but its myths are interesting and i added the dragon whisker moustache similar to any karate films you watch like a master or expert karate's beard i want it too look ageing and wisdom like you know wat i mean. Sinners Pain and Punishment is a collection of mixture of dark and ghouls and things you see from hell i include worldwide wheather if it be english, italian, spanish, greek anything i find interesting as long as its myths are good to read.

and also for the top right one is a goblin or imp face you like to say but i know what u mean but the teeth you ask is wrong i got its teeth if you ever heard of "soul eater" its manga and anime very nice and i took the moon's grin as you can see his teeth has this piano fat teeth like and in my art demons are ment to smile in pleasure of pain and suffering and sinners are meant to suffer for the cost of thier sin.

i guess so and yeah i understand thanks for ur advice but im happy with my work but i guess i could tone up and tone down on some part

but thank you for the great review phobotech :)
