This is a very big piece i did earlier this year, i dont even like the final result, it turned out pretty crappy if you ask me, still got a Daily Deviation over on deviantart though. I spent like 60 freakin hours on this, looks cool on a 3 foot poster though.

Great Concept and Amazing detail

First off and I know you won't like reading this bit but here goes anyway... it looks like a particular scene from bleach (an incredibly popular anime). Right got that out of the way onto the next point... Your attention to detail is amazing, Your main character looks imposing and looks ready for a fight, also it looks like a battleground where many have fallen before him. The reason why i'm writing this is because i've come onto newgrounds many times and from time to time I come across your art in which you have uploaded and I become more and more amazed at how much you've improved. I also genuinely think you should be a concept artist or something along those lines, but this is just my opinion. Well anyways enough of my rambling I'll you be now, if you reply I would appreciate it no matter what it is you say. With respect and admiration, Tsukune.

I thought it was a female as well.

But thats the result of poor emulation.

Trying too hard to look like anime ,when anatomy and design are still an issue for you will lead to confusion like this.

Most anime characters are ambiguous, but you need to know why that is so before imitating that style.

arvalis responds:

First and foremost, id like to agree. Secondly, this is very old and i know it looks like crap. I wasnt trying to emulate anyone's style here, but was just doing my own thing. Also i cant stand being compared to anime, i prefer to fall under the videogame concept art genre. This was also before most of my life drawing training, so i have greatly improved.


How do you do that? Im good but your really, really, really good! =(

I really like it

Its very well done, the girl is definitely the focal and the dull colors of the weapons and earth around her definitely solidify that point. But the sky really throws me off. I get the billowy, ominous look you were going for, but it takes away from the girl, detail wise. I just gives me that "thrown together" look. Like you splotched on an array of colors and smudged them a little. Now the sky is well done, but it really just doesn't give me that polished look like everything else in the picture. Nothing against it though man, this is just C&C, keep it up, looks like have been doing so, I love your work.

arvalis responds:

Im not sure how you figured this was a girl. Broad shoulders, well defined musculature, masculine attire, wtf. You might want to pay more attention next time.
