Dust everywhere 'cuz that's how kool kids kounter krap komposition.
Free request. Robot/healer/pirate and his patient on a leather bag infusion.

- shiny metal + dust everywhere = wut
- weird lighting all around
- lazily made the vase non-transparent
- again way too hard lineart
- bad textures lazily DoF'd away
- how to bed sheets
- wall maybe should've been darker to increase depth and contrast


thats impressive! great work with a eye catching shiny thing haha, i think its great keep up the good work

I would love to have this fellow as my Royal Knight.

Heart-Warming. Well done :)

It seems you are too hard on yourself. the picture does exactly what it sets out to do. It says to me that death is nothing to be afraid of, as the knight seems to be the girl's escort to the other side, patiently waiting for her to pass on, while making sure it's peaceful for her.

I think you did a very good job on it. Definitely a peice I'm more fond of on newgrounds.

I don't think it would be the same without the dust spread around. It gives it character, as well as the lighting.
One thing I really like is lineart, that isn't an error so much as preference, you won me over on that.
Textures can always be improved don't be hard on yourself about that.

The only thing I'd agree with is that it could be darker. I like the fading around the corners but I do think if it was just made darker it might improve the picture overall, none the less you did good on this. We're on newgrounds afterall, no need to dedicate hours to making the 'perfect' picture.

Good job and keep it up, hopefully you'll release more work like such!

(Keep the shiney metal!)
