Wow, amazing work ... especially love the facial expressions of the "tormented souls" in the right lower corner. Is it all naturel or did you use a digital program to do the finishing touches?

no I just used pens. sorry for the lateness in my reply I havent had my newgrounds accout access for a while.

It would be a crime not to favorite this. I simply have nothing but admiration for you. I find it very likely that this took 700 hours to make. There are just so many little details in it. The best parts are the little bits of paper that are flying toward the Sun. I think those are pieces of paper, at least.

The feathers are a wonderful touch too. You even put great detail into the screaming faces. I guess those are the souls the Grim Reaper owns. I even just now noticed his arms. You deserved an award of some kind for this. I guess the "Frontpaged" thing might count.

I was insanely busy for while and just got back on my NG account thank you so much for all your kind words, I glad you like my work!

This is amazing work,
I think the disproportionate skull and horns are great. Seems to me to represent the asymmetrical realism of life. The detail and scale is terrific! Keep up the great work man. Wish i had that skill and focus.

I really have to say, u did a good job here. Actually - beside these wonderful art skills - the whole picture leads to an perfect-convenient atmosphere. Great contrasts and unbelieveable good drawing technics are the reason for this stunning feeling while looking at this work of art.

Thanks, this is awesome. Would like to see more of you!


i wish i had you focus, the time and effort really shows. great work
