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


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.

Despite all the things you've pointed out, I like this piece. Yes it may need some work here and there, but the scene it actually shows makes up for all of that. Good job!

Thank you, thanks a lot!

Everyone's self critical, but this is a really good piece. When I saw this I was surprised and delighted. A robot with a different direction than that of most people's on newgrounds. Very well done.
The things you pointed out are mostly not central to the piece, focus is on the robot, so none of it looks bad at all.
the lighting is also really good btw. great work
