Brilliant

So this was pretty brilliant here some nice "SCENE" here I like the lighting even I think the lighting should come down more like a beam of light and maybe even deeper within the element to show off certain details here and there just for extra measures and such, anyways really good and "SOLID" work you have here.

Huge piece, and nice coloration. My only complaint would be the size. As large as it is, scrolling down leaves me staring at what feels like blank space, interspersed with the occasional detail. I'd condense the piece somewhat.

A man falling over the mountain... and a man standing underneath it, looking up at the falling man? The same man? It's a strange transition... and it can't be the same man, can it? Falling from such a height. The darkness is profound, but the figure at the bottom really baffles. Love how it all fades away otherwise. Wonder if it would've been better with only darkness, or maybe a different world waiting below, something beyond the life he seems to falling through. Big question though: where is he falling from? Why is he falling? He seems to be falling above a peak rather than from it... really interesting piece. Maybe he's really rising upward, flailing around, abducted by an UFO just above the edge of the canvas...

This would've been a five stars from me if it stopped about halfway down. I'm sure the bottom has some deeper meaning but I'm not privy to that. The sight of that man falling in the emptiness just hit me like a train though, I don't say this often but this is some good art.

Acrylla responds:

I agree, the bottom did feel a bit off... Thanks for the response :)

You portrayed your feelings pretty spot on. Fantastic piece even with its simplicity. Hope things turn out for you. Sooner than later.

Acrylla responds:

Thanks, this really is the first "feeling" piece that I've tried to make :)
