The Offer


For this painting I wanted to do more of landscape and something pleasant, but at the same time I wanted to put a dark theme on it. So I thought about making a beautiful place during the afternoon/sunset. But at the same time, is being performed a sacrificial ritual for an ancient Divine being. What do you think?

if you ask me then i would think that she does not seem to completely hate the fact that she is being sacrificed..looks a bit like she is jumping on that thing like it is her "free willy". maybe they drugged her really well beforehand and she is like the monsters happy pill...i dunno, but i like the thought. i still like the theme, idea and vibes it gives off.
i can not tell you if it is a good thing or if it is a bad thing (since i am a beginner- level artist myself), but when i look at the painting i see a few places that are focal points. can that be a downside?
also i am thinking you could really hype this one up if you slightly change the perspective. while it certainly is not bad, don't get me wrong here, i think a slightly changed perspective/point of view might improve it by a lot...also there is a monster inside of that very calm water. i mean a giant monster moves through it and it is not making any bigger waves or something? also for a sandy-natural beach the water is a bit unnaturally deep all of a sudden.
still liking the work :) keep making good art

DaemmonArts responds:

Yes the idea it was she being sacrificed but at free will, like she is part of the cult, like she is the choosen to have that "gift".
Well the part of the focal points I think probably I don't have done a good work and the prespective isn't the best too. Probably if I paint this over again in the future I will change a lot of things.
At the time I thought on the same things you are saying, prespective, the water and the place for the monster, but part I thought too late when I had so many work already done. The waves I thought, maybe the monster already was waiting for the sacrifice, so the moment of the jump the water was more calm. But yeah, the rest I think need a big improvement. Maybe one day I will do it again :)
Thank you so much for your comment, I still have so much to learn.

Really wel done, cool designs and colors. Maybe, to create some more depth, I would have blurred the clouds a little but other than that I love it. keep up the great work.

DaemmonArts responds:

Yeah I can see that, thank you so much for your advice :D
