The Martyr

Digital matte painting based on a photograph by Mark Burban of pixelwhip studios.

8-10 hours.


I hate to sound likes fan boy, but the details of your art are the best thing to ever happen to the art portion of newgrounds.com. All of the individual attention that each tiny piece of graffiti receives absolutely astonishes me. While I possess little artistic talent, in possess a great deal of appreciation for pieces like this, pieces that can tell a story. If you were to ever make a graphic novel, I would own every issue.

(BTW, I recently received a nexus 7 as a gift, and a portion of The Hit is my background. Everyone who sees it gets referred to your website, AND I tell them to new grounds search you.)

This was seriously the kindest compliment I've received for my artwork in a long while.
Thank you!

Dark, grungy, and easier on the eyes than that cyberpunk alley.

Nice work.

The background drawing in this is just awesome. All the clutter, and everything lying on the floor, there's so much detail it seems amazing you'd have time to draw it all in a mere workday. I especially like the mosscovered walls and the lighting, it has a kind of abandoned and futuristic feel to it. Great work!

Amazing work, really inspiring how all the detail and the short story makes you think and see a huge world behind this ,possible outcomes and story archs while actually knowing anything except what the picture tells you.
