Need A Light?


Author Comments

Ahhhh. Burning.


You definitely like TF2



The use of the light here is highly understated. Starting off with a dark room for the spy and then having pyro spark off a lighter at the tip of his fingers gives lovely dimensions to the piece as a whole.

Simple lines for the spy make him look rather sharply dressed, as opposed to just mad at pyro for blowing his cover. Perhaps reduce the thickness of the chalk-stripes to pin-stripes on his suit and make the tie look more like a well tied knot, than a mere line down his front, as a well tied knot can jut out from the collar in a statement all on its own ;)

Finally from the spy, I might have had a snorted sigh of smoke coming out of his nostrils, as the cigarette is smoked enough for him to have taken a breath in and out. There is no need for a look on pyro's face, so just the inclination makes all the difference to such a pose. A nice use of dimmed colours, to make it all look so dark, private and indeed surreal. Keep up the good work.

I definitely need to look into how ties work to better draw them... It'd help if I knew people who actually wore such fancy attire.

Funny you mention the smoke coming from the nostrils, I actually originally had that drawn out but took it away in the end. Kind of regretting it now that it feels like something is missing.

Appreciated! Thanks.

cool, needs a title though... need a light, maybe?

Jemmuh responds:

I originally had it called "touche" but NG does not like special or accented characters - though for a rename I like your idea so thanks mate!
